Actually, I happen to like moldy houses now. They tend to sell really low and banks want no part of them. Now, I am no mold expert by any means but I just happened to have a situation where this applied.
A couple came to me wanting to short sale their house with tons of mold in it. Black mold in every room, it was insane. I had no idea what to do so I went to a mold remediation expert and he said that it would cost around 20-30k to get rid of.
I then went through the process with him step by step and come to find out the majority of the cost is labor associated with the removal of debris, drywall, etc. Come to find out that the bleach compound is really the only thing that actually kills the mold.
After that, I looked up other companies that do mold remediation and found some that use ozone and are much less expensive (less than half). They actually create a vacuum in the house and pump in ozone to kill all the mold. What's left is an inert dust (dead mold not harmful) that can be swept up and cleaned.
The couple has decided to try and get a loan to fix the house but if they can't I will be doing this short sale.
Now this is a very simplified version but I just wanted to throw that out there. Always be careful when dealing with mold and do your due diligence.
