Description of Service

Moldman offers basement mold removal and testing. In fact, we have performed thousands of basement mold jobs and inspections since we were founded in 2006. If you are looking to eliminate your basement mold problem for good, you have come to the right place.


A note about basement mold testing: we can also test for basement mold. But if you have an obvious visible mold problem, in most cases you can skip the test and save your money. Why? Mold testing is almost never needed when visible mold is present  (EPA agrees too), because the steps to properly remove the mold are the same regardless of the type of mold you have. In these cases, if you have obvious visible mold, we can just give you a Free Quote to remove it.


The proper way to professionally remove is the same regardless of the color or type of mold. The industry standard and steps do not change based on what color or type the mold is.

Causes of Basement Mold

All mold, including basement mold, is caused by a water or a moisture problem. In a basement, this is typically caused by flooding, a crack in the foundation, a plumbing leak or simply high humidity.


Our Basement Mold Remediation Process

The size and scope of a mold removal or remediation job in a basement can vary considerably. A flooded basement, for example, is obviously going to be a lot more work than say a small plumbing leak confined to one single closet in the basement.


But regardless of the size or scope of the basement mold problem, we always follow the same industry process, as follows:


  1. Containment. This just means sealing off and containing the work area where the mold problem is located to prevent or limit the mold from spreading to other areas of your home or business where there is not a mold problem.

  2. HEPA Air Scrubbing. Here, we use industrial-strength air mover machines with HEPA air filters to clean the air and capture the mold spores in the air. HEPA filters can capture 99.97% of all airborne and microscopic mold spores which pass through the filters.

  3. Selective Demo. Not all mold problems require demo. But when it is required, we focus only on removing impacted materials such as drywall that cannot be salvaged.

  4. HEPA Vacuum. Here, we use vacuums with HEPA filters to  vacuum the work area to capture the mold spores on the visible surfaces.

  5. Antimicrobial Cleaning. This step involves detailed cleaning of the contaminated area with hospital-grade antimicrobial cleaning agents to kill mold growth.

  6. Final HEPA Vacuuming & Clean-Up of Work Area. We once again do HEPA vacuuming and perform an antimicrobial wipe-down on surfaces where mold spores may have settled within the work area.

  7. QC Check & Customer Sign-Off In the final step, we do a detailed quality control check and do a walk through with the customer (when they are available) to go over the completed job. Once the customer signs off, we take down containment and clean up the work area.

Basement Mold Removal Pricing

Moldman’s pricing is average for the industry or right in the middle typically of our competitors. We do not have a flat rate pricing for basements because the scope of work can vary considerably from one basement to another (e.g. a flooded basement is going to cost significantly more than say a little bit of mold in a closet due to high humidity).  For this reason, we have done basement jobs as low as $500 to $5k+.


If you get a substantially lower quote from another contractor, this is almost always because they are inexperienced, and lack the certifications, expertise and proper mold insurance that Moldman carries. These things really matter with basements because the mold can keep returning if not properly diagnosed and fixed. 


Regarding mold insurance, it is a speciality insurance that is expensive and harder to find. Why does this matter to you? Because if a contractor causes damages to your home or gets injured, their insurance may deny the claim if they are not carrying the right insurance. Further, you or your insurance may be liable if their insurance denies their claim.
