5/5
Our experience with the Mold Team was extremely positive. Not only did they remediate the mold in the basement but also got rid of the mold spores in the air & that musty odor. They were very methodical in their remediation & did exactly what was proposed & all at a lower price than other contractors.

4.5/5
Working with the team was splendid. We had previously sought quotes from other companies but the quote we got from the team was still over $1000 LESS than our previous one! Once we decided to go with the team the work was scheduled quickly and handled professionally.
Regina Duffy
4.5/5
The team came and gave me an estimate which was less than most of the competitors. They were responsive and timely. They sent me a very detailed work plan description which I so appreciate because most contractors only give you a general description of what they are going to do and you're never really sure about the specifics.

Frequently asked questions about Des Moines mold remediation

Here are some of the most frequent questions we get asked about mold remediation and removal in our years serving Des Moines and across Iowa.

WHICH MOLD IS THE MOST DANGEROUS?

All mold types can trigger allergic reactions in individuals. Newborns, the Elderly, Pregnant women and those with weakened immune systems are the most at risk. But other mold types can create long-lasting illnesses like aspergillosis: a disease caused by exposure to aspergillus/penicillium, which is fungus growing in the lungs. 

WHAT ARE BLACK MOLDS?

Black mold is the popular name given to the Stachybotrys chartarum mold species. It can grow in houses and it’s very toxic to humans. Molds release mycotoxins, as a defense mechanism, and this can trigger many symptoms in humans ranging from mental to neurological and respiratory illnesses. Presence of black mold in your home/building calls for immediate removal.

Can I treat Mold myself?

You can use some home ingredients like bleach and vinegar to contain mold. However, it is never advised to treat mold by yourself. Mold can be dangerous and requires specialist hands to identify and treat it to prevent it from spreading and causing you and your family any harm.

Vinegar is said to be better at mold containment and partial removal than bleach. Some background levels of mold spores will remain after the use of bleach.
