You would have to get estimates from Auto Body or Auto Detailing shops (your Search the List categories to find vendors of that type).


If light surficial mold on a hard surface like a dash, or on a removeable and replaceable item like floormats, probably no big thing and a detailing shop could handle it for maybe 100 or two $, assuming it has not gone in under the dash.


If the problem is mold within the seat padding, generally that has to be removed and replaced - cleaning mold out of cushions and padding is pretty much a lost cause because the spores stay in there, and if you attack it sufficiently to totally kill the spores the treatment destroys the item being treated - not to mention electrical in the seating like seat heating or electric seat position adjustment motors. I would expect minimum charge to be about $500 range for anything more than floor mat replacement, and can very rapidly go up if electrical in involved. Reupholstering a seat including replacing the foam core can run $400-750 - total seat replacement can run $1000-2000 range per seat.


If this was from flooding of the car, again body shop is the place to go - but bear in mind that not only do you have the mold to deal with but also floor and door panel rust, and likely failure of electrical wiring and components voer time if not immediately. That (in addition to the high cost of incremental component repair/replacement) is why cars which have been immersed deeper than about the door sill are generally junked, not repaired.
