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 is visible: - main level pool room ceiling and walls. The source is high humidity overall and dew point where the HVAC ducts run across the ceiling. The permanent fix is to have a building performance company assess the situation and fix all air leaks, inadequate insulation and keep humidity under 55%. - main level office ceiling. The source is a leak from the 2nd level bathroom above (leak repaired) - basement gym ceiling. The source is the clothes dryer was exhausting into the gym ceiling cavity. Someone knocked a hole into the paneling on an exterior wall and it looks like mold on the backside of the paneling.

Mold is visible on the tack strips and walls of the basement guest bedroom. The carpet and padding also have a moldy odor. The mold is found on both: - the walls of the bedroom closet. The cause is an issue with negative grading outside. - the bedroom walls that adjoin the bathroom. The cause was a flood that had occurred in the bathroom but the bathroom appears to be free of mold.

Mold is visible on the furr down for the hvac ducting in the laundry room ceiling (furr down is like a boxed out section of ceiling that's framed with wood and wrapped in drywall). The cause of this seems to be moist air condensing on the hvac ducting and dripping onto the dry wall.

Mold is visible on the backside of a small section of drywall in the basement storage room. The mold is roughly 2' from the end of the wall (which adjoins the space under the stairs) and about 2' tall. The reason the mold grew is because of high humidity (when humidity rises above 60%). However other sections of visible drywall, contents and overhead framing/subfloor aren't visibly moldy so it's strange that only this section of drywall is moldy.

Mold testing appointment with InstaScope. Client had an odor in the basement they’re trying to track down. Most likely it’s an enclosed space under the stairs that has been drywalled over.

Mold is visible in the basement family room on the ceiling near the corners of the fireplace. There is also visible water damage on the walls to either side of the fireplace. The drywall is reading dry on a moisture meter currently. The cause of the mold was likely a previous leak in the flashing for the fireplace that was fixed a few years ago, water stains were previously present.

Mold testing appointment. Client has a toddler who has stated coughing in the evening, in the last couple months. Did InstaScope and found very elevated levels of mold spores and PM2.5 particle counts. I suspect it’s the plug-in essential oil diffuser but it could be another source too. Gave them recommendations to try first then I’ll re-test and see if plan B is needed. Also found visible white mold in the basement from high humidity. Setup mold remediation/mold removal estimate appointment.

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.
