When you own a house, it’s more than a place to live. As a gathering place for your friends and family, your refuge at the end of a long day and the site to share your most precious moments, it’s a home — and an investment. You want your home to be as comfortable, attractive and well-maintained as possible, and that means keeping up with repairs, maintenance and routine checks.

When you need remediation and removal services to keep your home at its best, you might be hoping you can find cheap mold removal or cheap air duct cleaning services. While cheaper estimates might save you a bit on the bill, they’re not what’s best for your home. When you pay less for an essential job like air duct cleaning or mold removal, you may be paying for lower-quality work. When you want to get the most out of home maintenance services, here’s everything you need to know.

How Expensive Should Air Duct Cleaning and Mold Removal Be?

When you have your home tested for mold and require treatment, the cost of removal often depends on the scale of the job. If the mold is an issue throughout the entire house or in a large section of it, sometimes removal can cost as much as $25,000 -$50,000. Smaller jobs can be less costly, usually around $5,000 -$10,000.

In addition, in New York State Article 32  states the testing must be performed by a licensed Assessor. This is a 3rd party contractor and cannot be the same as your remediation contractor. This can cost between $600 and $1800 depending on the size of the project. Mold remediation may require demolition which may also require reconstruction depending on the affected area.   

When you receive estimates for mold removal, consider the cost of the job against its relative size. While some companies’ prices seem high, an especially low quote should be cause for concern — it can mean the job won’t be done properly or abide by NYS guidelines. Instead, choose the quote that covers you with a good warranty, that follows the assessors’ protocol, and the one you feel you can count on to cover the mold removal the right way.

For air duct cleaning, the average price is $35 per duct plus the price of the system — meaning $600 and up for the entire house, depending on its size. Prices can also vary depending on the home’s number of ducts and the way they’re configured. Cheap air duct cleaning can be just as detrimental as cheap mold removal. When the job is over, you might find that you got what you paid for — not enough. Does the contractor show you before and after photos to make sure the dirt is out of your system and not just sitting in the bottom of the duct?

Your home deserves the best treatment, so go with a company that will clean it properly, even if the bill is a bit higher.
