Give Fungus the Boot: Top 5 Mold Removal Services for a Safe Home

  • Qualifications - Experience is important in mold removal, so we selected services with knowledge of comprehensive treatments and certifications from reputable institutions.
  • Proven Track Record - We picked companies with extensive offerings and those with a successful track record in removing mold to ensure a thorough service.
  • Accessibility - We chose providers with flexible hours and good communication skills for a smooth process.
  • Rates - We looked if the prices are justified based on the service and if they have competitive quotes.

I think we can all agree that at some point in our lives, we’ve seen those black spots in our home—I honestly thought they were dirt stains when I was young.

But it turns out they’re so much more dangerous than that! That’s why when I saw some black spots appearing in my attic after a leak, I immediately asked around for a professional because there was no way I was letting that thing grow in my home.

So, I called my family, friends, and neighbors for help because I was scared and panicked. Thankfully, some of them had recommendations that successfully killed these nasty things in their homes. Here are the ones we trust the most!

One of our picks is Ultimate Mold Crew because of their track record of successfully removing mold. They even received the HomeStars Best of Award in 2021, which shows their good service and happy clientele.

They’re professionals in mold removal, having over a decade of experience in the field. They are certified by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IIRC) and the International Association of Certified Indoor Air Consultants (IAC2).

Plus, we’re glad they’re also MICRO-certified for mold remediation. Basically, all these professional affiliations indicate they’re qualified to remove any kind of black mold in your home, which gives them a wealth of experience.

These guys also provide free inspections, but the catch is it’s only free if you avail of their service. You do get a good value for money because we’ve seen that they’re very thorough.

We like that these guys are all about completely removing mold because they have inspection, removal, and remediation. The best part is they’re actually really good at removing mold, which we witnessed firsthand after they serviced our buddy’s home.

They have emergency services, too, which was pretty surprising since not all do. We were honestly surprised to see their crew working on a weekend, which we later learned is because they’re available daily as well.


  • Won HomeStars Best of Award 2021
  • Certified to remove all kinds of black mold
  • Has emergency services
  • Available any day of the week


  • Consultation is only free with service

Top-notch service throughout

“Priya and her team were absolutely fantastic! From the initial consultation to the final delivery, I can’t recommend their service enough. Priya was very thorough with her consultation. She took the time to discuss and assess the problem. She also recommended alternative solutions that weren’t big enough to warrant her crew coming out. This alone demonstrates the honesty and integrity by which she and her husband operate the business. The technician who came was fantastic. Friendly, trustworthy, and he took ample time to explain everything to us, and followed safety guidelines to the t! If you’re on the fence, go with them!”

Ahad Raza, Google Review

Honest service and no upselling

“I had a mould issue in the corner of my sink area. It was pretty small. So I called these guys and they told me exactly how to fix it myself, and didn’t charge me a dime. They said they could fix it, but it wasn’t fully necessary. Old school business with old school values, awesome customer service and trustworthy owner. I recommend them!”

Prime Home Services Inc. is an all-in-one destination if your home has unfortunately been attacked by mold. They have the proper certifications that you can only earn with experience and knowledge.

They’re Certified Residential Mold Inspectors (CRMI), Certified Mold Remediators (CMR), and Certified Commercial Mold Inspectors (CCMI). These basically mean they’ve completed training, which indicates they’ve passed the necessary courses.

We were happy to witness that these guys provide detailed reports—every issue is actually noted there.

Their services are mold inspection, planning, remediation, and prevention. It’s a nice touch that they do renovations, which is handy if there’s a need to tear down walls if the mold has reached the inside.

We’re glad that they’re also super professional with their service because they were very committed to solving mold problems, which our neighbors actually mentioned.

They also provide free in-home inspections, which is awesome. Couple that with their reasonably priced services, and you get a budget-friendly provider.

But if the mold issue is too severe, we found that they have 0% financing to help with your payments. There’s no credit card required, either, which is convenient.

However, the only issue we have is they’re closed on Sundays. But we learned they’re pretty responsive, even coming the same day sometimes.


  • Makes detailed reports
  • Prices are reasonable
  • Provides 0% financing
  • Highly responsive
  • Can provide same-say service occasionally


  • Closed on Sundays

Professional service throughout

“Sina was a thorough professional! He did a great job at cleaning the mold in my attic. He was on time, reasonably priced, was very diligent, gave good advice on future maintenence. All in all highly recommended!”

“Sina was amazing! The mold removal was completed in one day and the price was reasonable. He was clear about the work that needed to be done. He also provided advice to prevent this from happening again.”

CleanFirst Restoration has been around since 1989. Their 35 years of experience are a testament to their skills and wealth of knowledge.

They actually received the Consumer Choice Award in Business Excellence in 2012. They’re also certified by the IIRC and associated with the Environmental Services Association (ESA).

These guys aren’t shy about their results, having done over 10,000 mold inspections in the GTA. Quite impressive!

Their services are pretty extensive as well, which we like because you can just hire one service instead of paying for another. They offer mold inspection, removal, and remediation, as well as asbestos removal and air quality testing.

These guys are also very professional, and we’re glad to see how they go above and beyond for their clients. We’re also happy to see how patient they are, especially when explaining and discussing the mold removal process.

It’s nice that they provide a 100% satisfaction guarantee should there be any leftover mold in your home. But from what we’ve seen, there’s no need to worry about mold once they start their service because they’re super good at it.

Overall, they’re a solid choice, especially since we received a fairly priced quotation from them. It’s just a bummer they’re not available to work on Sundays.


  • Winner of Consumer Choice Award
  • Has 100% satisfaction guarantee
  • Services are fairly priced
  • Has done over 10,000 mold inspections


  • No work on Sundays

Incredible customer support

“Michael and his crew provided the best customer services and mold remediation. He was so kind walked me through the process and answered all my questions. He was very professional and went above and beyond. I would highly recommend his Company CleanFirst.”

Rebecca Singh, Google Review

A trustworthy team with professional service

“Working with Michael from CleanFirst was a great experience. He is a knowledgeable, honest person who showed genuine care in his work. I called him worried about some issues in our home, and through his thoughtful approach and inspection, he eased all my worries. He answered all our questions and proved to have a wealth of knowledge about mold-related issues. I touched base with many mold inspection services and did not feel comfortable with their inflated prices and suggestions. Thank you, Michael for your time and care!”

We appreciate that Canada’s Restoration Services serves major cities like Toronto. But what’s even nicer is they’ve been around for over 12 years and have done over 10,000 jobs, which speaks volumes about their massive clientele.

They’re highly qualified as well, receiving the HomeStars Best of Award 2024 and being IICRC certified. It ensures these guys follow safety standards during mold remediation—and a safe job is what we go for in this house!

Their services are also pretty extensive, which comes in handy during major damage. Besides mold removal, you can also call them for asbestos removal, reconstruction, and storm and fire damage.

It’s nice they offer free inspections. They even went to our mate’s house on time and gave him a detailed and transparent quote, which is a testament to their honest service, no?

Plus, they’re available 24/7, which we really appreciate because it makes them very accessible. This is also convenient for emergencies, which makes them a reliable service.

Sure, they weren’t as quick with our first inquiry, but we think it was probably a busy day because they were responsive after that. Despite that hiccup, they remain one of our choices, especially with their commitment to using eco-friendly solutions.


  • Available for emergencies 24/7
  • Won HomeStars Best of Award 2024
  • Provides free inspections
  • Committed to using eco-friendly solutions


  • Some hiccups with communication

Top-tier customer service

“I had mold in my basement and after speaking with customer service representative Laura she booked me an inspection with Matt because we had visible on our drywall. Matt showed up on time and gave us a through and detailed quote. We booked services for mold removal the next week. Lester and his team who did the mold removal were professional. Would highly recommend this company for any mold removal jobs.”

Nonar Nartowsk, Google Review

Very detailed report

“Very pleased with the team of Canada’s Restoration Services and the report they provided. They called me immediately to explain the process and came the same week. The report was clear and professional and gave me full clarity. I would strongly recommend them.”

The Mold Guy, previously called MoldServices, a qualified mold inspector we like because of their many professional affiliations. They’re certified by the IAC2, CRMI, and CCMI, which gives them a wealth of knowledge for mold removal.

Plus, they were also a 9x winner of the HomeStars Best of Award (including in 2023) and received the HomeStars Best of the Best in 2023. These show their exceptional customer support, no?

We like the variety of their services as well because it all correlates to mold issues. There’s mold inspection, removal, and testing, as well as indoor air quality testing and asbestos testing.

Plus, they also provide pre-purchase mold inspection, which is a really handy service before buying a house. It does ensure you won’t get stuck with a toxic house.

It was also surprising that their service is very discreet. We saw there was no large “mold removal” mark on their truck and the crew didn’t come with brightly coloured uniforms that would make nosy heads turn.

There’s just a little hiccup with the communication because we felt they could’ve explained the situation a bit clearer.

Nonetheless, they were very responsive in making appointments (they’re open daily), which shows their dedication to resolving the issue quickly.


  • 9x HomeStars Best of Award winner
  • Provides a discreet service
  • Highly responsive to appointments
  • Open daily


  • Some miscommunication hiccups

Quick service

“We had a great experience with The Mold Guy! We have a basement apartment in our home and we needed to deal with the mold issue quickly for our tenant. The Mold Guy was super responsive and able to come out and assess the issue right away. They were able to come in and quickly resolve the issue and also provided recommendations for repairing the floor after they finished the job. I would 100% recommend the Mold Guy – great customer experience.”

Lesleanne Blakeley, Google Review

Helpful team and no sales pushing

“Highly recommend this company!!! Matt was excellent – very professional, experienced, knowledgeable, and reassuring. He clearly was not trying to sell us anything or push any services on us. He quickly and thoroughly assessed our home, and then made very practical recommendations to remedy the situation.  We are so grateful for his advice and expertise.”
