Frequently Asked Questions
About Remediation & Abatement

New Life Service Co

Question list

How long will it take you to respond if I call about a mold or asbestos problem?

Very fast. We typically can schedule someone to visit your home within 24 to 48 hours – and it never takes longer than a week.

How worried should I be if I have a mold or asbestos problem?

Be concerned, take action… but don’t panic!

Mold can cause family members to feel sick, so it is important to take care of it as quickly as possible. Asbestos is less of an immediate danger, but definitely should not be ignored. The bottom line is you should not delay calling us, but you do not need to become overly anxious or alarmed either. Let abatement professionals for Eureka, Arcata, and Fortuna rid you of the problem safely.

How can I know you are qualified for remediation and abatement work?

The first thing to know is we were founded in 1982 and we are Humboldt County’s only full-service restoration & reconstruction company. That is more than three decades with a proven track record for home renovations for Eureka, Arcata, Fortuna, and surrounding areas.

We are fully licensed and certified for both mold remediation and asbestos removal. And our crews are our employees – this work is too specialized and important to use sub-contractors.

Also, our expertise in restoration means we can help you with the entire project, and give you one complete quote for all the work.

Does homeowners insurance cover remediation or abatement costs?

It depends on your policy – often it is not. But if a claim is involved, we are true experts who know what insurance companies require to fully pay a claim.

Can I clean up a mold problem myself?

We strongly recommend that you don’t. Even if it appears like you “cleaned it up,” you have probably sent the mold airborne, spreading it throughout your home. Trying to clean up a mold problem yourself makes the problem worse – often significantly so.

How do I know if my home has a mold problem?

There are several different signs that you have a mold problem – you may notice one or all of them.

  • Feeling sick, with cold-like symptoms, sometimes including headaches.
  • Musty smells.
  • Black appearing on surfaces – common areas include bathrooms, basements, window sills, baseboards, and closets.

To know for sure if you have a problem, call to have a professional test completed.

How do I know if my home has asbestos problem?

Often homeowners find out through a professional home inspection. If you suspect that you might, give us a call. We are a full-service home restoration company serving Eureka, Fortuna, Arcata, and surrounding areas.

Some of the most common places we find asbestos: popcorn ceilings, old flooring, siding, and drywall.

How much will it cost?

For asbestos, lead and mold remediation in Humboldt County, the size and scope of the jobs vary enough that we can’t provide general estimates. What we can tell you is this: you will be given a comprehensive quote up front, so you understand the process and the costs clearly.

Our quotes and project plans are very detailed by design. This ensures nothing gets missed and there are no hidden costs. Call us today for your comprehensive evaluation.
