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!
There is visible mold growth on the overhead floor joists and subfloor in the crawlspace. There is no vapor barrier, allowing water vapor and odors to come off the exposed dirt and keeping the dehumidifier working hard. In the attic, the insulation was installed poorly and needs to be redone so that the insulation facing is facing the living space and that the soffit ventilation/ridge vent is operating properly.
There is an intermittent leak around the chimney that has damaged the living room ceiling (plasterboard). The insulation in the attic above the living room was wet at the time of the appointment. The grout/caulk in the master bathroom shower is failing and there is likely hidden mold damage behind the tile. At the edge of the shower, mold is visible on the subfloor underneath the linoleum floor. In the basement rec room, tester positively sampled mold growth behind the paneling near the washing machine. In the past, water had come through a penetration in the foundation wall and flooded part of the basement. There is visible mold growth on the utility closet doors (solid wood doors). There are a few visibly moldy drop ceiling tiles, from a past plumbing leak that has been repaired. Adjoining the basement rec room, the basement bathroom shower walls are visibly moldy. The vanity is also visibly water damaged.
There is standing water in the crawlspace on top of the old vapor barrier. Much of the insulation has fallen, and there is mold growth on all wooden surfaces throughout the crawlspace. The HVAC ducts and air handler in the crawlspace are significantly contaminated and should be removed entirely.
InstaScope mold test. Client showing mycotoxins in their blood so wanted the house checked. We found a few areas of concern. One was a hall bathtub that is getting water behind the tile. No outward signs of water damage or mold but the moisture meter tests 100% wet in one corner of the bathtub
Successful mold remediation of a long project wrapped up today. We remediated the basement perimeter wall but found the exterior sheathing was rotted. Client spent the next 6 months waiting for a siding company to remove siding and replace the rotted sheathing. They also found the deck and sliding glass doors had no flashing, which was the cause of the mold growth in the first place. We could’ve just painted over the rotted sheathing with a mold inhibiting paint…but that’s not the thorough way
Successful post testing of a mold remediation we just finished. We actually started this project months ago but the exterior plywood was rotted. The client had to get a foundation/drainage company to make waterproof from the outside then another company to replace the rotted plywood. It was long, with a lot of moving parts. But they chose the right path for taking care of the mold problem completely and thoroughly then preventing it from coming back.
Mold testing appointment using the InstaScope. Client reported flooding in their basement. I also found this warped hardwood flooring in a 2nd level guest bedroom. They remembered the balcony outside retained water and flooded the kitchen below. Looks like it also came into their guest bedroom. Set them up for a mold removal estimate with out estimator
InstaScope Assessment completed to assess air quality.
Mold is visible: - in the basement rec room on the laminate flooring as well as on the drywall. - in the basement storage room on the drywall adjoining the bathroom. The source of the mold is considered undetermined however I suspect it to be a leak in the shower pan.
InstaScope Assessment completed to assess air quality. No visible mold in house. They had mold in the garage ceiling from a deck leak some time ago. The particle counts in the 3rd level MBR and master bathroom were pretty high. Recommended an air purifier (already have one in the room but it's definitely not doing it's job) and a true HEPA vacuum.
In the 2nd level master bathroom shower, the grout wore out in some areas and water has leaked into the wall, going all the way to the floor below. There are water stains on the main level living room ceiling (which is underneath the master bathroom shower). In the basement, water backed up into the rec room door from a clogged floor drain outside. The wet carpet and tack strips were disposed of by the homeowner. The wall adjacent to the basement door is graded poorly. Water settles near the foundation, and it is likely that there is hidden mold.
Mold is visible on the carpet and tack strips in the main level office. Mold is likely behind the baseboard and paneling too. The source is unknown but it's likely a drainage or foundation problem. The affected office wall sticks out several feet from the adjoining townhouse. We're going to tear out the carpet and the paneling on the two exterior walls.
Home owner experience symptoms and hired mold testing company. They found high airborne levels of mold in the main level living room (11,200 Pen/Asp versus 1,480 outside). The basement rec room wasn't tested but one exterior wall tests wet (underneath a window), the shoe molding is discolored and the entire laminate floor is cupping at the edges.
On the bedroom ceiling. The source is a roof leak (which is still ongoing). Drywall tests wet with a moisture meter.
InstaScope Assessment completed to assess air quality at the property.
The basement rec room had a prior leak from the fireplace that was repaired. Several mushrooms grew along the carpet/baseboard. The wall wasn't torn out. It's likely there is mold behind the baseboard and/or between the drywall and bottom plate (aka wood framing)
There is a moldy odor coming from the corner of the basement rec room. Owner whacked a hole in the wall with a hammer and it smells moldy. Room tested 1,700 spores but hole tested 2.2 million spores. Also, basement hallway flooded and the carpet was torn out but the smell remains.
Mold is visible on: - The Foundation wall in the basement storage room in both exterior corners. The cause of this appears to be water seeping through the foundation due to either negative grading in the yard allowing water to pool near the home, or the gutter downspouts emptying to close to the home. We advise consulting with a drainage and erosion company to solve the root cause of this issue. - The wall dividing the laundry room from the hvac portion of the room. The cause of this mold is a leak from the washing machine that has since been fixed.
Mold is visible: -In the 2nd level master bedroom on the drywall next to the shower. This likely will go behind the shower as well since the builders did not use a proper shower backer board in construction. The cause of the mold is a breach in the caulking around the shower door. -In the basement HVAC room on the overhead framing in the half of the room closest to the fire place cut out. This is believed to be from air leakage at the band joist (the horizontal joist that runs around the perimeter of the foundation walls). We advise consulting with a building performance company to identify and seal any air leaks.
We remove mold the right way… and it would be an honor to hear from you.
