Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How much of a health hazard is mold?
A. At a minimum, most people have an allergic reaction to mold and mold spores. The seriousness of the reaction depends on the nature of the mold and whether it has been ingested into the lungs, sinuses or other cavities. In some cases, mold exposure has been documented to cause death.

Q. How can I tell if the mold in my basement is dangerous?
A. Chances are you can’t. To be completely sure, you need a sample analyzed by an independent lab to specifically identify the type of mold that exists in your basement. Only then can you understand what type of risk you face and how urgent it is to remove it.

Q. Are your services guaranteed?
A. All of our work is guaranteed and we have an independent lab certify that we have returned the property to a normal environment. However, if the source of the problem (e.g. moisture) is not resolved the mold will return.

Q. How much does mold removal cost?
A. This depends on the area being remediated and the severity of the infestation. Generally, mold removal starts at $499. Kleen Condition always provides a detailed free quotation before any work is performed.

Q. How long does mold remediation take?
A. The time it takes to remove mold depends on the size of the area and the degree of infestation. Our objective is to restore the area to a level of typical flora like you might find anywhere. This corresponds to a “normal fungal ecology” as defined by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC).

Q. Once removed, will mold come back?
A. Mold occurs because conditions on your property allow it to thrive. Generally, this is about temperature and moisture. If the conditions are not eliminated, mold will eventually return.

About Mold

Mold is a type of fungi. These eukaryotic micro-organisms decompose dead organic material such as leaves, wood and plants—or your attic, basement and walls. The spores and hair-like bodies of individual mold colonies are often too small to see without a microscope.
