Humidity And Moisture Control Solutions That Provide Long-Lasting Results For Your Falls Church, VA, Home
Keep Your Basement Mold-Free And Safe For Your Family
Do you have a humidity problem in your basement in your Falls Church, VA, home? Here at Valor Mold, we don’t just throw the first dehumidifier we find at the problem. We work to find a lasting solution to permanently bring your basement below 60% RH (relative humidity). Our humidity and moisture control solutions involve getting to the source of your problem.
We aim to make the humidity and moisture control solution as cost-effective as possible, so we start by looking for the most common culprits of basement humidity. While we can help you fix many of these issues at reasonable prices, for those we can’t, we’ll refer you to trusted professionals who will treat you right.
When fixing the underlying problem is not a viable solution due to cost, or if it won’t solve the issue, we turn to using a dehumidifier. We’ll set you up with a stand-alone dehumidifier that will work only on the air in the basement, as opposed to the whole-house system, which is what the competition will try to sell you on and it’s completely unnecessary.
The Key To Stopping Mold In Your Basement Is Prevention
If you’re concerned about mold in your basement, several steps can be taken to prevent it. The first is investing in a dehumidifier to remove any moisture that could be building up. However, those over-the-counter dehumidifiers at retail locations are often not powerful enough to handle the entire basement.
You also must ensure your gutter downspouts are properly draining rainwater away from your home’s foundation. If they’re not moving the water far enough away, the result could be that it seeps into the foundation and then into your basement. The result will, unfortunately, be mold growth.
If you still find mold despite your best efforts, the best solution is to avoid trying to handle it yourself. It can be hazardous, especially in large quantities. Without the proper personal protective equipment and training, you could put yourself at risk for serious illness. Your best solution is to call a professional mold remediation company to remove the mold.
We Won’t Use Harmful Chemicals To Solve Your Problems
While you may be under the impression from various things you’ve heard over the years that you must destroy mold with chemicals, that’s just not true. In most cases, chemicals are not needed in mold remediation, and using them can worsen the situation.
There is a practice still used today by many mold remediators called fogging. Unfortunately, this is a very dangerous practice with no regulation stopping companies from using it. There have been several cases in which the homeowner has been sent to the hospital as a direct result of this method being used in their home.
While it may take us longer to complete a remediation project than it does the competition, we’re not taking any risks with our customers’ health. We put our all into every project and successfully remove mold without using chemicals. In fact, we have a 96% success rate, which far outweighs the national average for mold remediators’ success.
