David is exactly what we needed. A smart, thoughtful, experienced, and unbiased opinion to help us deal with an issue we are having. Thank you,David.
Representative is courteous, on time, and willing to share information about mold problems to an uninformed customer. It has been a very pleasant experience, well worth the price paid.
Teddy was professional, thorough, and very helpful. We trusted his assessment. Highly recommend him
Second time using Valor. Consistently maintain the highest professional standards. Appreciate their focus on transparency and communicating with the client. Highly recommend.
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.
Explained process thououghly..
Valor has provided exceptional customer service, and David was amazing! He listened to my concerns, provided a wealth of knowledge, and guided me through the entire process. Having the equipment to quantify mold spores is a game changer!
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.
InstaScope assessment completed to assess the air quality in the property. Previously, a couch and desk chair had visible mold growth.
InstaScope assessment completed to assess the air quality of the property. Musty smell in the foyer and known water issues with the porch roof. 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.
The back corner of the basement rec room had visible mold. The source is a foundation leak that's most likely been repaired by extending the gutter downspouts away from the house.
InstaScope Assessment completed at this property. Mold is visible on all HVAC registers on the 2nd level. Mold is also visible on the surrounding drywall around many registers and inside a lot of the flex HVAC duct feeding those registers. InstaScope testing found all rooms on the 2nd level were green (except one bedroom was yellow).
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 to check air quality in property. No visible mold but strong smell of mold in addition (built 9 years ago). Smell started last year when property experienced heavy rains and high humidity. Areas came back in the green and recommended more in depth mold testing.
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.
InstaScope mold testing appointment for a routine check of the indoor mold and particle counts. Found a few problems like a waterproofing problem in the master bathroom shower. Some small amounts of mold in the basement. Plus this problem in the corner of the basement where the gutter downspout is emptying too close to the house
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 on the walls of the basement rec room closets. The source is likely the neighbor's gutter emptying next to the foundation and leaking through. It's also likely the mold extends across into the front foundation wall in the basement rec room.
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. The cause is believed to be water coming through the brick for the front steps. We advise checking the seal around the front door and having the brick re-pointed.
We remove mold the right way… and it would be an honor to hear from you.
