We Prevent Moisture Buildup
Rot And Mold Growth

Crawl space encapsulation in Washington, D.C., is an essential service that helps homeowners around the region avoid problems.
The crawl space of a home is a hollow space beneath the floor, between the ground and the first floor. Encapsulation is a process by which the crawl space is sealed off from outside air. To do this, contractors apply a polyethylene barrier like that found in below-ground swimming pools.

It promotes cleaner indoor air and prevents moisture buildup in the crawl space. This inhibits wood rot and mold growth, and it results in less humidity in the home. This also saves you money and energy use for HVAC. To learn more about crawl space accumulation in the Northern VA, Southern MD, and Washington, DC area, read on.

Back To Table Of Contents

The purpose of crawl space encapsulation is to keep moisture from the ground and soil from entering the crawl space of a building. It keeps humidity down, protects the flooring and support structure, and prevents dirt and debris from entering household air. It also reduces the chance of mold formation, which is expensive and difficult to remove.

This type of service is often required in warm, humid areas like that of the Northern VA, Southern MD, and Washington, DC area. Signs you may need it include the following:

Frequent moisture buildup on windows and mirrors

  • High energy bills
  • Pest Infestations
  • Mold Growth
  • Standing water in the home
  • Indoor air quality problems
  • Many of these issues arise because of moisture problems. The primary reason to encapsulate your crawl space is to eliminate moisture and control indoor humidity.

    Valor Mold’s Incredible Client Reviews

    What Our Clients Say About Us

    Back To Table Of Contents

    “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!.”

    “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.”

    “Valor mold eradicated the mold issue in our house. We bought a house only to discover that it was riddled with black mold due to a leak in the attic and an elevation problem, which caused water to run through the crawl space. We interviewed a few different companies, and Valor provided the best value. They sent a pro out to assess the site instead of sending a salesperson. He worked diligently to resolve our issues by removing all of the contaminated materials, encapsulating the crawl space, and installing a dehumidifier and sump pump. He sent me pictures throughout the process to keep me informed of the progress. It was a great experience. To top it off, I called them almost a year later when the sump pump failed, and they came straight out with no questions to correct the problem. It wound up that the pump had slipped and was not able to suction in its position. Valor fixed the problem, cleaned up all the water, dried out the crawl space, and fixed holes in the plastic (that I had not seen), which some intruding mice had caused. I recommend Valor to everyone who asks me for help with a mold problem. They are professional, responsive, timely, and reasonably priced. You can’t go wrong!”

    Q: Do You Offer Financing?

    A: Yes, we understand that crawl space encapsulation is not an expense that many homeowners budget for. Because of that, the need for it might arise when you can least afford it. That’s why we offer financing for customers who qualify for it. We offer various plans, where you can pay as little as $46 per month based on your credit history.

    Q: Are You Certified?

    A: A: Yes, we possess as many—or more—available certifications as any mold removal and air quality service in the Washington, DC, area.
    For instance, we have been accredited with CMRS accreditation from the American Council for Accredited Certification, which means we are a Certified Mold Remediation Supervisor. We also boast certification as Mold Removal Specialists by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, And Restoration (IICRC).

    Q: Why Is Indoor Moisture A Problem?

    A: We encapsulate crawl spaces to eliminate moisture. Moisture weakens the home’s support structure, makes the home uncomfortably humid, increases the need for air conditioning, raises utility bills, and leads to mold growth. Mold is a health hazard because it causes sneezing, coughing, itchy eyes, skin rash, and breathing problems.
