Review of Valor Mold Removal

Working with David Myrick and his professional staff was a pleasure. From estimates to scheduling to execution and follow-up, they were knowledgeable, courteous, cooperative, flexible, thorough, and a delight to work with. Their work was high quality, inclusive, precise, and complete. They showed up when promised, did the work and cleaned up completely, and then tested the results. I was thoroughly satisfied with their work and would without hesitation recommend them to anyone. Did they cost a little more? Yes, but when interviewing several highly-rated companies, I found a great range of competence and care. Valor Mold Removal was top of the line, noticeably better and more competent and thorough than the others. It paid off in the final result of a superb job well done.

Mold testing appointment. Found an area on the ceiling of the basement bathroom that tests 100% wet. Measures up perfectly with the master bathroom toilet upstairs. However the master bathroom shower tiles test wet so it might not be a toilet leak. Could be the shower tiles leaking water then the water running along a pipe, wire or duct and dripping a few feet away. Setting up a mold remediation/mold removal appointment for our estimator to give a mold remediation estimate

Mold testing appointment. I found several areas of concern and visible mold in the basement. However what brought me here in the first place? Client saw white mold all over the attic. I looked at it and seriously doubt it’s mold. Looks like mud, tree sap and some kind of chemical residue. They had me take 2 tape samples just to be sure. I’m glad when I can give folks good news

Mold is visible on the exterior walls near this one particular corner in the basement bedroom and closet. The mold looks like it's caused by high humidity/dew point but it could be a foundation leak too. There is also visible mold on the ceiling of the adjoining bathroom (high humidity) and walls in the rec room (direct water damage).

Mold is visible on the walls inside the HVAC closet (which is located in the garage) and also one section of the garage wall. The source is condensation/dew point. The ducts leak air. In the summer, leaking air conditioned air makes the drywall cold. When warm, humid air touches a cold surface, then mold forms. I recommend a building performance company assess the situation. Either the ducts need to be air sealed and insulated, or the walls need to be better insulated from the unconditioned garage air.

Also, visible mold growth on most of the HVAC vents on the 2nd and 3rd level. Owner mentioned the fan set to "on" instead of "auto." This will cause the humidity to rise because the moisture never drips out of the coil.

InstaScope complete. No visible mold found in house. Mold levels in the green. Only recommendation is placing an air purifier in the basement room. Particle counts are a little high and they spend all their time in that room so it’s good to knock those levels down.

One of the blinds in the bay window of the main level living room was adhered to the bay window's ceiling. Owner detached some paint and discovered visible mold on the drywall. The HVAC register is directly below this so there is a chance cross-contamination happened. The source is an intermittent roof leak.

Mold testing appointment. Complaining of moldy smells, especially in one particular closet. The exposed concrete slab in the closet tests 100% wet so the slab is retaining water from past water damages. The worst part is the flooring contractor installed plywood subfloor under their living room hardwood floor. So, judging from the concrete moisture readings, this plywood is likely growing mold too

InstaScope assessment completed in this property to assess the air quality. Owner suspected mold after water damage during siding installation. All the areas tested came back in the green - which means these rooms had airborne mold concentrations that we would expect to find in a structure under normal conditions. The airborne mold in your home was not significantly higher in concentration or different in ecology than the mold outside on the day and time the inspection was completed.

Mold is visible on the wood paneling on the exterior walls of the basement rec room and storage room. It's also around the drywall where the ceiling vents are. We believe the source is condensation/dew point caused by air leakage and/or inadequate insulation. We strongly recommend you have a building performance company do an inspection right after remediation/PRV is complete.

Mold is visible in the garage alcove (the area beneath the front steps and foyer) on the bottom of the drywall. There is also visible water damage on the ceiling.

A Mold Tester’s Opinion Of Valor Mold Removal

More Client Reviews

“It was great to have [Valor Mold Removal] here. The team was careful and diligent. They really put in a tremendous effort to get the hardwood off of the slab.”

- John in Reston, VA

“Simply put, Joey and Kristyn were outstanding. They worked so hard and were nothing short of meticulous, conscientious, considerate, friendly, professional, and probably a dozen more positive adjectives that escape me at the moment! Plus, they had to do their work in what ended up being a very small space, with all that had to be moved, pulled up, and done.

As you know, I put many, many hours of research into services and best practices for mold remediation — and it’s obvious you all do things right. While I had every confidence in the two of you in this regard, it’s quite a different thing for your dedication to pass on to the front-line workers. I don’t need to tell you, experiencing other service companies, that this often does not happen. Kristyn and Joey approached and fulfilled every aspect of this job as if they were the owners of the company, which is the highest compliment that can be given. (Not even counting that the job went way beyond what was expected!)

My wife (who was here far more of the time) truly appreciated the care with which both of them treated her, the reassurance they were putting all their best into the job, and their overall ‘bedside’ manner throughout the process. You are incredibly fortunate to have them on your team, as I’m sure you already know! There is just no way we could imagine them being better at their jobs.

I’m working on an Angie’s List review (which will include a lot of what’s above), attempting to reconstruct every aspect of the work in writing and what makes it so outstanding and recommended. The minute that’s posted, I’ll let you know.

In the meantime, THANK YOU so much for doing what you do, and with such dedication and professionalism. God only knows why anyone would choose to do mold remediation — but we’re immensely grateful you did!

🙂

And lastly, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for getting our work completed before Christmas week. We can’t convey what a relief this is. It was also tremendously helpful for Joey and you all to accommodate the final day of work being Thursday despite your other commitments. For reasons he can explain (or you might guess), we had to have our heat turned off for the containment — which would’ve been no fun today! With our best Christmas wishes to you all!



-Andrew in Herndon, VA

“David – I cannot begin to say what a great team you had working on our house. Joey and Mikey were simply amazing. As I type this evening, Joey is working diligently to finish up the last little bit despite the fact he has been working for more than 12 hours straight. I know this has been a frustrating job for him but he has taken it in stride and always has a smile on his face. He has kept us regularly updated on the progress, helped explain the bumps in the road and showed up every time he said he would…on time! He completely put us at ease.

We 100% trusted having your crew in our home even when we weren’t there and really got used to having them in our house…like little church mice in the basement just a little louder. We are so pleased with the results and are well on our way toward imagining a newer and better basement for us.

I will most certainly recommend Valor to as many people who will listen and would be very happy to serve as a reference to any potential customers you may have. Please feel free to give them my phone number or email address if they would like to ask about your company.

From start to finish, this has been a fantastic experience…well as far as having a moldy basement goes!

Thank you so very much for what your team has done and specifically Joey. He is truly one of the hardest workers I have ever seen. You are lucky to have him a part of your crew.”

-Lexie in Falls Church, VA

Short Version: PROPER mold remediation, easy scheduling, courteous crew that goes the extra mile, expert mold science nerds, expensive but worth it.

Long Version: Valor Mold is the best in the business. We had many companies provide quotes but it was clear that several of them were drainage companies masquerading as mold remediation companies without proper remediation controls in place. Valor Mold was the highest bidder but also the ONLY company that truly understood how mold remediation should be done.

Valor Mold covered every square inch of my fully finished basement with plastic, complete with barrier walls, zippered doors, and decontaminant areas, using negative air pressure. Removal of contaminated drywall and insulation was very methodical and disposed of in duct taped heavy duty trash bags. Foundation walls and framing that could be salvaged were sand-blasted instead of chemically treated, fully removing the mold. Once all the contaminated materials were removed, air scrubbers were used to clean the air prior to removing the containment areas.

Post-remediation real-time on-site testing was state of the art and I did not bother to rehire the industrial hygienist I had started this project with. We had three rooms remediated and even though they were all reading in the normal range for mold spores, one room was elevated compared to the others. David and his team, at no additional cost, recleaned the room. Still not satisfied, they recommended removal of the carpet (mold spore haven) and more drywall just to make sure there wasn’t a hidden source of mold. We agreed and they did this, and recleaned, at NO additional cost.

The scheduling process was seamless and the crew showed up on time each day. One day, the lead technician was sick and personally called me, letting me know who would be in charge that day. The crew was always courteous, friendly, and genuinely did a thorough job. They gave me feedback throughout the process and asked for approval when they thought they would have to remove more material than originally anticipated. They showed me pictures daily of the work performed and where water was coming in.

Our primary issue was water pooling around the house and seeping into the foundation walls due to a botched gutter downspout installation into the ground. One of the crew members was so disturbed by this that he went out and purchased downspout extensions for all of my downspouts and installed them at no additional charge, staying late at night because of expected rain. We saw an immediate resolution to the root issue and it has been a great short-term solution while we work on hiring a company to properly install underground drainage.

I rarely write reviews but I was so impressed with this company from start to finish and appreciate all the precautions they took to not expose my family to the harmful mold they were removing.
