Tips on selecting a Mold Remediation Company
- Only select company who guarantees their work.
- Technicians should be certified and follow IICRC-520 standard and EPA mold remediation guideline.
- Quotes should be in writing and specifically itemize all work to be done.
- Don’t assume something that’s not included in the bid is included with the cost, even when it seems minor.
- Question any proposal which appears out-of-line. Make sure the bidder isn’t taking cutting corners to lower their estimate.
- Ask ahead what the company charges for modify orders. Don’t assume the company is going to do extra work for the cost of the work by itself. Take into account a number of respectable firms incorporate a service charge on top of the cost of the work.
- Take a look at bid along with your insurance provider to find out which expenses are going to be covered by your insurance and which are your responsibility.
- In case your mortgage lender is involved in the process, be certain the bid payment schedule as well as bid specifics meet the lender’s standards.
- Ask people you know for references, recommendations and personal references. Ask the company for references/recommendations of satisfied clients and call them before you sign a contract. Check their online reviews and testimonials. If the company isn’t willing to provide references/recommendations, they could be hiding something.
- Watch out for companies who required payment in full up front, or who say they’ll need final payment before the work is done. Be aware, however, that it’s common for companies to ask for partial payment as work progresses.
If your insurance firm gives you a short list of Remediation companies, ask:
- In what ways are the vendors selected?
- Are there any benefits in selecting a suggested vendor?
- If you select a company from the insurer’s list, will the remediation work be guaranteed by the insurance company?
Your insurer is prohibited from requiring you to use any specific mold remediation company, other than may make recommendations. Just like any contractor under consideration, you should check for proper licensing and insurance policy coverage, ask for a list of references, and review their work prior to making a decision.
