If you’ve discovered mold in your home or commercial space, you’re probably wondering about the typical costs of mold removal. Read on to learn about the typical process and cost of mold removal in Maryland. And, if you’re looking for the best way to remove mold, we’ll discuss why Puricleanse has an advantage over the traditional mold removal process.

Before Looking into Mold Removal Companies…

Before you hire a mold removal service, there are a couple steps that you should take. First, find the source where moisture is entering your home or building. Whether it’s a plumbing leak, roof leak, or an airflow issue, find the source of the problem and make sure it gets resolved. You should probably hire a handyman or repairperson to make sure the job is done right.

Second, make sure everything is dry. You should check your carpets, drywall, and anything else that might be holding moisture in the problem area. We suggest running fans and dehumidifiers to make sure the area is completely dried out.

Typical Process and Costs for Mold Removal

Once you’ve followed the steps above, it’s time to call a mold removal company to make sure every trace of the mold is gone. Here’s what a traditional mold removal company will do:

Air Test

One of the first things a company will do is go to your property and do an air quality test. Basically, this test will determine what kind of mold is on your property, if it’s hazardous, or if it’s related to any health issues that you might be having. This test will give you a general idea of what needs to be done.

Typical Costs: $199 – $499


If the air test comes back and they determine that mold removal is necessary, then the next step in the process will be demolition. During this phase of the process, a company will remove any drywall or carpeting that has been completely ruined by mold. While doing this, they’ll also use mold treatments in the problem areas to make sure mold doesn’t spread.

Typical Costs: $4-$6 per square foot


With mold, there is a huge possibility that it’s in your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. Tiny mold spores could be in the air you breathe. Unfortunately, this makes it harder to remove all the mold from your property. You’ll need a professional to clean your ducts and run air scrubbers throughout the house. This will ensure that the air in your home is safe to breathe.

Typical Costs: $1,500 – $3,000


Finally, the last and most expensive step: rebuilding after demo and mold treatment. Typically, the rebuild consists of carpets and walls, but if rooms such as kitchens and bathrooms are also included in this process, then the costs can be much higher. For example, if cabinets were damaged or tile was removed, the costs will really add up.

Typical Costs: $8 -$12 per square foot or more

The Total

When you add all of these typical costs up, you could be paying anywhere from $15,000 to $20,000 for mold removal on your property, depending on how extensive the mold problem is.
