The cost of mold removal will vary based on a number of factors, including:
Mold removal can cost as little as a couple hundred dollars, if you’re able to do the work yourself. Maybe all you need is an antifungal cleaner, a scrub brush or two, and some personal protective equipment, along with some elbow grease. On the other hand, if you have to hire a professional, and if there is extensive mold growth or if there is mold in your home’s HVAC system, mold removal could cost you more than $10,000. Maybe much more.
Mold removal is going to cost you some money. Don’t cut corners in order to cut costs, because you won’t really get rid of the mold that way. However, there are some things you can do to keep the cost as reasonable as possible.
Maybe. It will depend on the cause of the mold growth in your home and on the specifics of your policy. In general, if your insurance covers the water damage that led to the growth of mold in your home, it will probably also cover the mold removal. For example, insurance usually does not pay for repairs to a leaky roof and it usually will not pay to remove mold that grows in an attic as a result of that leaky roof. If your home floods, however, and you have flood insurance, that insurance should cover the flood damage and will probably cover the cost of removing any subsequent mold, as well.
