Description of work:

Visual mold inspection and took air samples in 3 areas of the house. Full report of air sampling was issued to us the same day the lab returned results to him. Due to water entering the crawl space because of a faulty gutter and leaking service line, mold had formed on various stored items including insulation, joists and wood studs. Larry removed everything from the crawl space including all the insulation, bagged and hauled to the curb for trash pickup. In the basement area, he removed mold damaged drywall 4 feet up and sprayed with proper solution. Damaged drywall was also hauled to curb. He completely removed all wall to wall carpeting and padding in the basement, again hauling it to the curb for pickup. Larry then applied an anti-fungal fogging (Sporicidin) to the entire area and at my request also fogged the heating ducts in case any mold was growing in there. Very professional, Larry's personal protection included full body suit, gloves, respirator, etc.

Because of a health issue, we were advised to get a mold test done. Not having any experience in this area we turned to Angie's List and found Mold Busters as being A rated and also nearby. From the initial phone call the experience couldn't have been smoother. Larry's knowledge of mold testing and remediation was shared in terms we could understand and best of all there was no high pressure to have any of the work done. A fully detailed estimate was provided. He spent a good part of the day here and worked continuously until completed. Larry also pointed out and serviced areas that were not included on his estimate. Most contractors I've dealt with look for additional work they can charge for. Would I recommend Mold Busters, LLC to my friends? I already have. With the blitz of advertising that enters the home, choosing the right company to do work that you know little about can be a stressful experience. You're pretty much at their mercy. Some are good, some not so good. How to choose? Angie's List led me to the right outfit and for that I am grateful.

Mold remediation and prevention.

Larry came out to our house after we had a mold test done by another company for a second opinion. Larry came out to our house very quickly and was very professional. He went through the problem areas where we had water damage due to a leaking roof and laid out a work plan which involved spraying the problem areas with a disinfectant and sealer to kill and prevent any future mold growth. Larry was very reasonable in price, especially after we had received a 13,000 quote from our original company. Larry is straightforward and does not try to scare the crap out of you acting like you are going to die if you don't spend tons of money to get the problem fixed. Another company wanted an absurd amount of money to remediate and in the end our post remediation mold test came out clean. Larry's air samples are much more thorough. He takes his samples and grows them in cultures to determine what actually is alive in the air vs. just dust particles. Overall, Larry was a life saver and definitely would recommend him!

Description of work:

I called Mold Busters LLC after I discovered black mold in the lower section of my rear, north-facing attic. I had had this section of the roof replaced two years before for mold, and now it was back. Larry Hobman, the owner of Mold Busters, listened carefully to my problem and advised that the old insulation be removed, and that both mold killer and mold guard be applied to the attic. We agreed on a price and he came out three days later.

Larry arrived on time on a Thursday, examined the attic, and began to remove the insulation. We discovered that the insulation was not only roll out bats that I had been adding over the years, but 55 year old rock wool, 3" deep insulation, as well. He worked non-stop (no lunch, no bathroom breaks) from 10 AM to 4 PM, removing 65 full trash bags of heavy, very filthy insulation. He returned the next day, Friday, and sprayed and then fogged "SHOCKWAVE," an EPA registered agent to kill the mold. He then sprayed, using an electric compressor, "Fosters Full Defense 40-25," to kill and encapsulate the mold. This appears like a white paint on the wooden surfaces throughout the attic. He then removed half of the 65 trash bags and returned on Sunday to remove the rest. Throughout this process, Larry answered my many questions with patience. He was careful to use tarps, cleaned up after himself, and provided an invoice for me to submit to my insurance company. I believe that moisture had been migrating from my house through the very old and packed, non-faced insulation. Hopefully, with its removal, new vapor barrier insulation with a total of R-43, adequate ventilation from a Smart Vent, and Larry's anti-microbial treatment, this problem has been solved. I would recommend Mold Busters LLC for anyone fighting a mold problem.

Larry was great. We were purchasing a home over the Thanksgiving holiday and Larry showed up a day before thanksgiving to address the mold problem. He was a true professional.

Overall Larry's service was great. Larry also gave us great ideas for keeping the mold away without spending 8k to 9k to water proof the basement. We also plan to use Larry for installation of our dehumidifier.

Description of work:

Remove ceiling drywall to access old and new mold from leak of upstairs toilet. Sprayed 2 different agents to kill mold and sealed with a paint type preventitive barrier. Also referred us to a drywall repair contractor he has known whom does nice work.

Phone call was answered immediately. Free Estimate was done the next day at the time agreed. Estimate was emailed that night. Process of remediation of mold explained. Service was done a few days later, as his schedule allowed. Mold killing agents did not have too caustic a smell. Larry is very conscientious about his workmanship and clean up. The drywall contractor whom Larry recommended and often works with came the next day and also did a great job.We would recommend Mold Busters to others. (And NO...Thankfully, he does not have a vehicle with MOLD BUSTERS displayed all over it in the driveway, for the neighbors and local Real Estate agents to see!)

Description of work:

Suspected mold in attic was tested, and an air sample in living quarters was taken and tested. Mold on attic rafters was promptly remediated (killed and encapsulated).

Our house was up for sale, and after an inspection report stated "suspected mold in attic"....we contacted Mold Busters for testing. We received a very quick response from Larry, and the testing and examination went smoothly. Before the results were back, we proactively scheduled the "remediation." Larry showed up prepared, and in about 4-5 hours had our entire attic rafters sprayed with a biocide, then sprayed again with an encapsulation product. The smell wasn't too bad, but did linger for about a week. Our house was on the market, and the smell was very tolerable, so it didn't interfere with showing the house. I would recommend Mold Busters to anyone who needs mold testing, and remediation. However, I wish that the scientific mold analysis report had been accompanied with a written explanation of what it exactly means. Larry verbally discussed the results with us, but I had nothing "reassuring" in writing to give prospective buyers. Larry did provide several scientific articles discussing mold types, etc, but these sounded too scary to show prospective buyers. I did receive a written letter stating that the mold had been professionally "remediated", with the detailsl of the products used. In summary, it was a fast conclusion to an upsetting problem, especially since our house was on the market.

I contacted Mold Busters and spoke to the owner Larry. Larry spent about a 1/2 hr. discussing with me the various options for mold testing and remediation. Larry was very thorough and professional throughout the entire interactive process.

Our mold testing was scheduled and completed within a very reasonable timeframe. The results revealed a problem, but not as extensive as first thought. Mold Busters was contracted to complete the remediation and all was resolved with complete satisfaction. I would highly recommend Mold Busters as a reliable, professional and honest company to handle your mold concerns.

Mold removal from drywall and carpet in the basement. Had to remove some drywall and carpet and treat surfaces to remove and kill the mold.

Larry answered my call for an estimate and service scheduling over the Memorial Day weekend and came by promplty on the Tuesday following the holiday to remove mold from my leaky basement. He did the work on time, thoroughly, and for a price I didn't feel was outrageous. I recommend MoldBusters and will look to them for help in the future.
