Solve Your Home’s Moisture Problems With
CrawlSpace Encapsulation
In Fairfax County, VA

Our Process Protects Against Moisture, Mold, And Rot,
Keeping Your Crawl Space Safe

Have you noticed the crawl space under your Fairfax County, VA, home is prone to moisture build-up? Does it smell damp or musty? Valor Mold has the perfect solution for you – crawl space encapsulation. Our process is waterproof and leakproof, ensuring your crawl space stays completely dry.

The problem with a moisture-laden crawl space is that it is a breeding ground for mold and bacteria growth and attracts pests like spiders and snakes. In addition, the wood inside the area can end up rotting due to exposure to all that moisture. The worst part? Half of your home’s air comes from the crawl space!

We’ll ensure every aspect of the problem is taken care of, including groundwater problems. The entire crawl space will be sealed with special plastic, guaranteeing no moisture can infiltrate it. While most of the moisture will be kept out through these steps, we’ll also install a dehumidifier to tackle the little bit that gets by.

We Avoid Using Chemicals During Mold Remediation

That’s right! Mold remediation doesn’t require chemicals. When you ask around for advice before turning to a Northern VA, Southern MD & Washington DC area professional, you’ll hear all kinds of suggestions. 

The primary one will be to “kill it with bleach.” Keep whoever it is talking, and you’ll eventually hear even more suggestions, like painting over it, using hydrogen peroxide, scouring it, etc.

The problem is that if the mold has gotten onto a porous surface, which can be your rugs, drywall, insulation, and similar materials, none of these solutions will come close to touching the problem. In this situation, the recommendation is to tear out the affected materials and discard them.

We follow the steps outlined by the Institute Of Inspection Cleaning & Restoration Certification (IICRC) in the S520:

  1. Isolate the affected area, placing it under negative pressure.
  2. Tear out all moldy objects you cannot save (these will be those porous objects we mentioned).
  3. Strip the mold from all objects that can be saved (these include semi-porous materials like wood).
  4. Remove all remaining mold spores

As you can see, there is no magic remedy for mold removal – it’s just hard work and elbow grease.
