Mold can be a huge problem especially when it is not contained and dealt with properly. Mold can make people sick, especially children and the elderly. When you find a mould problem that's too big for you to handle, you will need to call an expert to remove it.
A lot of factors go into the cost of having someone else remove mould from your house.
Determine the size and extent of the mould in your structure. The Environmental Protection Agency suggests cleaning surfaces yourself if they are 10 feet square or smaller. If mould is in a crawl space, mould remediation will cost from £1,300 to £3,900. If mould infestation is widespread, the price to remove may be £6,500 to £19,500.

Examine whether you will need a decontamination chamber, which is needed when the project is massive. This can increase the cost of project.
Take into account testing and inspection. Consider costs needs for mould testing and inspection before and after remediation.
Find the cause of the mould, which will have to be eliminated at some cost.
Add living costs if the remediation project forces you to live elsewhere, such as in a hotel or apartment.
