There are con artists in every business imaginable, including mold removal. If you research online, you will find horror stories from families conned into paying for unprofessional removal services. You can avoid becoming a statistic by doing your research first.
The best place to start is by asking for personal referrals. Ask among friends, family and coworkers. They might have experience with a particular company. The people you ask might even know other people with personal experiences. This is the best way to find out about a company’s reputation. You can learn a lot about a company by searching online. Most company websites include just about everything you’d want to know. The services they offer, how they work and more is usually listed on a website.
You can also search online to see if anyone has anything bad to say about the company. Unsatisfied customers don’t mind talking, and they always talk on the internet. An optional step is checking the company with the Better Business Bureau (BBB). If anyone has complained about the company, the complaint will be on file with the BBB. You can find out exactly what happened, why the customer complained and what the company did about it. You want a reliable mold removal company that will do the job right. When you find a reliable company, give them a call. Explain your situation and go from there. The company will probably send a representative out to inspect your home. This is the only way they can tell the true extent of your mold problem. From there, you should receive an estimate on how much time and money the job requires.
