We Keep Your Basement Dry & Mold-Free…
At The Lowest Possible Cost.
If you even think you have mold, turn to Valor Mold Removal. We can provide test results for mold on the spot.
We’ve invested in a groundbreaking technology that eliminates the issues of the typical mold test. Namely, the waiting time, the inaccuracies, and the high costs.
We can help.
… And Stop Your Humidity Issue At Its Source.
Unlike many companies, we don’t just stick a cheap dehumidifier in your basement and call it good. Nor do we push you into buying an overpriced $4,000 dehumidifier that ties into your air conditioning.
We actually take the time to assess your situation using real, verifiable science. Based on our findings, we develop a humidity-control solution that works for your situation and budget.
Our goal? Get your basement below 60% RH at the lowest possible cost to you. Here are a few paths we take to accomplish this…
Path 1: Exploring The Cheapest, Easiest Humidity Solutions First
Typically, the cheapest way to solve a humidity problem is to determine—and fix—the underlying cause.
High humidity almost always stems from one of the following nine problems (ranked most to least common):
We can help you fix many of these issues—and do it at a reasonable price. For those we can’t, we’ll recommend the best course of action for you to take, along with a referral for a trusted professional who can assist you.
But what happens if you fix the issue… and your basement is still too humid? Or what if fixing the underlying issue is too expensive?
That’s when we turn to mechanical dehumidification…
Path 2: Determining The Right Dehumidification System
If the actions in Path 1 can’t fix your humidity issue, we turn to mechanical dehumidification.
Central VA and Washington DC have a mixed-humid climate. This means we have the worst of both worlds—freezing temperatures in the winter and high humidity in the summer. This makes controlling moisture and humidity incredibly hard.
Consumer-grade dehumidifiers won’t fix the problem. Manufacturers claim they’ll cover 1,200 sq ft… but this is only in tests under laboratory conditions. You’d actually need 3 or 4 of these to control a humid basement in our climate!
Dehumidifiers sold by HVAC companies are one alternative to consumer-grade dehumidifiers. They are installed into the ductwork and typically much more expensive. There are, however, several problems with them…
Bottom line: It’s all about keeping the humidity in your basement or crawl space under 60%. If you do that, you control the humidity in the entire house.
So, what’s the RIGHT solution?
Building science says a powerful, stand-alone whole-home dehumidifier with its own humidity controls is the best mechanical dehumidifier option for our area.
Our Santa Fe dehumidifiers pack commercial-grade power for a consumer-grade price tag.
Wimpy big-box systems are made of cheap plastic. Santa Fe dehumidifiers are made of premium double-walled, powder-coated steel—and 100% manufactured in the USA.
