The cost of a residential mould remediation work depends on a range of factors, including: what type of material is affected, the size of the area and how much time it will take to remove and repair the area. Typically the range could be anywhere from $300 for a bathroom and more for a whole home which has visible mould though out the ceiling area.
When the mould removal is completed it should be set under negative air and contained with containment barriers and commercial grade antimicrobial to prevent the mould from reoccurring.

Mould can spread very quickly when it is disrupted by rubbing it or by air spraying against it.
