Here are some of the areas in which we work…
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 very helpful in the initial consultation and shared the good news that we don’t need their services. He provided practical steps to fix the problem on our own and offered to be of service in the future. Highly recommend!
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..
David, the owner of Valor, visited our home in May. He explained everything he was doing thoroughly and seemed very honest, had some great tips , and did not push us to do unnecessary remediation which others might have.
Valor went above and beyond on a recent mold remediation project in my basement. What initially looked to be a small mold issue turned into an extensive situation. Valor worked hard to eliminate the mold and kept me in the loop throughout the process. They were respectful, knowledgeable, hard-working and friendly.
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.
Mold is visible: - In the 2nd level hall bathroom. Mold is on the ceiling and walls. The moldy ceiling was caused by a roof leak. The moldy area on the walls appears to have been caused by a soaked towel sitting on the wall for a prolonged period. - In the main level rear foyer. There is mold on the ceiling, walls, door trim, and floor from a leak that had occurred on the exterior above the foyer. - In the basement storage room. There is mold in the two exterior corners of the room. This was caused by issues with the gutter downspouts. - In the basement guest bedroom. There is mold on the exterior walls as well as in the laundry room closet. This was caused by a water coming through the exit door in this room and flooding the room. - In the basement bathroom. There is mold growth on the baseboard from a past toilet leak.
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.
During the post-test of a unit directly above, the tester was concerned that mold has gone into the exterior wall in the master bedroom of this unit. The original cause was faulty flashing on the roof allowing water to seep into the wall cavity. Mold growth was discovered on foam insulation in a closet.
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.
Mold remediation completed. Mold is visible on the front foundation wall of the basement rec room. The front wall tested wet with the moisture meter. The source is poor grading in the front yard due to recent construction next door. There is also mold around the paneling on the right corner of the front foundation wall. The source of that is a past leak from the main water cut off valve (since repaired).
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.
Mold is visible on the lower walls in the basement hall closet. The adjoining wall is the laundry room. The source is unknown as the wall tests dry with a moisture meter and clothes were washed in the last 48 hours. The laundry room wall has no visible mold or water staining.
Mold is visible on hallway/staircase wall. This is the second time the mold has appeared. The MBR HVAC register is on the other side of the wall. Looks like the mold is caused by outside air leaking into the ceiling/wall cavity then causing dew point/condensation. Strongly recommend consulting with a building performance company to fix the air leak. Containment set up to avoid cross contamination during remediation.
