I just ran that same line item in RB and it said .57 per SF??? Don't forget to add the extras if your using a cost estimator - PPE, containment zones, negative air, HEPA vacuuming, etc.

Either way, I'm not a fan of using a CE for mold.

Everyone has their own rates and it depends on how good are they. In my own experience, it is better to pay more and have the job completed than paying less, but have it done more times. I had to get rid of a lot of mold in my old village house. It was in a bad shape and at one point I even wanted to demolish it at one point. I decided to give the mold remediation company a chance and it saved me a lot of money. They got rid of it quickly.

You would think that you can easily do mold removal then it is just your belief but the truth is different it is very important to be a professional along with proper tools and chemicals. For full mold remediation services mold professionals use expensive, professional equipment such as HEPA air scrubbers, HEPA vacuums, commercial-strength dehumidifiers, and more. Regular handymen won't have that stuff.

I have all that equipment, and I have friends in the PP industry that do as well. We may not have as much as a full time mold remediation company would, but certainly enough of it to professionally complete 1 job at a time. All of the required equipment and chemicals are easily available to anyone who wants to purchase them (new or used).

The real truth is this: Mold remediation is not a difficult task. But it does require some knowledge, and the proper tools to complete it properly.
