Attic Mold Removal - Fair Price?

Hello,

I'm hoping someone else has had mold removal done in their house and can provide some insight.

I recently purchased a townhouse and we found mold in the attic. Seemingly common due to lousy venting from the bathroom.

Anyways, I called around and one place gave me a quote for $1900 which seems high. That's for a 1700sqft townhouse. I'm struggling to find other places.

Is that a reasonable place? Does anyone have any mold removal specialists they recommend?

Thanks

It really depends on the extent of the mold. If its a small area on sheathing over washroom that might be high, if its a larger area of roof sheathing and rafters/trusses 1900 is cheap.

That doen't seem high, but depends on what they're going to do.

Didn't home inspector point that mold on his report?

not sure how large scope but seemingly not large area - all you need is fogging done. Will kill mold which is probably all you need, not to actually take it off of the sheathing. Few hundred bucks. That's it.
