Sample Reviews


We had a dryer fire in our home in February 2013. Structural damage was not too severe, but smoke and firefighter damage required about 2/3 of the home gutted to the studs.
We talked to a couple of other contractors when selecting a company to do the work. The other contender for the job seemed content to take the initial damage estimate from the insurance company and run with it, even though it did not seem sufficient to repair all of the damage (likely the quickest path to completing the project and getting paid). Superior seemed more willing to challenge the insurance company on things they believed needed to be done, even if it meant more work on their part and that it may delay the project. That was a big plus for us!

, the owner, came out with

(the Project Manager) to inspect the home and talk about the work that needed to be done. They really seemed to know what they were talking about, and we liked that they had experience with fire restoration, as my wife is very allergic to smoke so the completed project needed to have absolutely no smoke left in the home whatsoever.
The insurance company took forever to complete the paperwork so we could start the job, which delayed the start of the project by a couple of months. Superior was very patient through this process, even though I'm sure they wanted to get to work.
Once the insurance process was complete and the project began the day-to-day management of the project was taken care of by

(our Project Coordinator). He was very responsive and kept us up to date on the progress.
Another thing I appreciated was their willingness to adapt the project to our needs and wants. They were more than willing to make changes to the project (add things here, remove things there) so we could have the completed home that we wanted - provided the changes offset and fell within the insurance payment that is. They were also very willing to make changes and corrections along the way as discrepancies were discovered. For example, as they were rebuilding the kitchen island I noticed that they had not run power to it (which we had before the fire). When I pointed this out to them their only question was if I wanted power in the new one. When I said yes, they were immediately on the phone to schedule the electrician to come out and do it.
In the end we were very happy with the results. We have been living in the house for almost a year now and we love it!

Within 24 hours, over the holiday weekend, this company was in constant communication, arrived on time and did a through job. The crew,

, arrived in neat uniforms, and drove a nice service van that had the name of the company and a logo on it. Both guys were clean-cut, well spoken, articulate and professional.
After evaluating the situation in the crawlspace,

briefed me on the treatment and offered other observations. It became very clear that

had learned more about the construction details beneath the house than one of the foundation contractors which had performed work on three prior occasions over a period of five years. Since

, the mold guy, knew more about the house than the previous foundation guy, it reinforced our decision not to use that foundation contractor anymore!

was able to get into areas beneath the house that I have never been able to access, and we only recently learned was accessible by our new foundation contractor: the same foundation contractor that recommended
Hawthorne Mold Remediators Provider Name Locked
to us. I will have to back down there myself if I want to see how he did it. While he was underneath, we could hear him under a concrete slab portion of the house that we did not believe was accessible at all, since that was a "professional option" from our previous foundation contractor. To say the least; we are impressed that this guy did such a through survey. Two companies have told us that this particular part of the underside of the house was inaccessible. Now in less than a week, two new companies have figured it out. Clearly, we have been using the wrong contractors for years.
The treatment took almost three hours. During this time, all I had to do was make some hot water available to use to dilute the multiple batches of treatment spray that they mixed. I was briefed again by
Hawthorne Mold Remediators Provider Name Locked
before he left, got the paperwork done and gave them a check. They departed quietly and unlike other contractors, they left without a
Hawthorne Mold Remediators Provider Name Locked
; no litter, cigarette butts, etc.
We have not been able to go under the house to see the results, but we are trusting that the job was done well based on the interaction with the technicians. We will know more when the guys from our new foundation contractor come back to do their project, but we sure feel like we made the right decision to work with

. They are knowledgeable and responsible.


The level of personal attention provided by Valor was above and beyond what I would expect from most companies. I was in contact with
Hawthorne Mold Remediators Provider Name Locked
from Valor over the course of two weeks. That seems like a long time given the scope of work provided, above, but this was mainly due to
Hawthorne Mold Remediators Provider Name Locked
working with me before and after he came out to do the inspection. Unlike one other company I contacted,
Hawthorne Mold Remediators Provider Name Locked
did not employ any high-pressure sales tactics. He really took the time to explain the "5 Ws" of mold growth and removal, even going so far as to send me (before I was even really a customer) a paper he'd written on mold inspections and prevention that really calmed my nerves about the threat of mold, and a company pamphlet on what to do if you do locate mold. When he came out and took a look at my basement, he spent several hours actively listening to what I had to say as far as the property's history and my own concerns, providing in-depth responses and really taking me through what would happen if mold was located. I would definitely recommend him.

, examined the entire basement thoroughly (our problem area), did a quick check of the main floor, and went up the top floor for a thorough review as well. He used a device that checks for moisture in the walls, used his knowledge of trouble spots, and asked us before pulling back molding and insulation to check dry wall. He found mold, showed us what it looked like, and educated us. It was very helpful. He offered to do air samples as well but we declined.

It went great. I called the company on a Saturday morning and received a call right back from
Hawthorne Mold Remediators Provider Name Locked
. He was very helpful and offered to come out within an hour to make an assessment of the water damage. He was very professional and friendly. He offered his services to fix the ceiling and carpet, but due to the minimal damage he recommended what things we could do ourselves since we are in the process of remodeling the basement anyway. He recommended finding a plumber to fix the broken pipe since that is not something he does. I appreciated his honest assessment and will use this company in the future if the need arises.

I was told by a home inspector that the basement had suspected mold. He said he would charge $450 to do an air sample. If the sample said it was mold I needed to have it remediated, at my cost, then he would come back for another air sample for another $450 . I didn't want to pay for all these air samples so I called
Hawthorne Mold Remediators Provider Name Locked
and we talked on the phone. He came out and visually inspected the area and could only find a small amount mold in a corner of the basement and a very small area on some cabinetry. He told me how to clean it myself and paint with anti-fungal paint and how to move the dehumidifier around the room to get the moisture out. All this and he didn't even charge a fee to look at the basement!!!! The home inspector said there was mold in the rafters.

said it was just efflorescence and dirt. Imagine that.

is terrific and I would recommend him to anyone. He's not out to make a buck, just to service his clients. Thanks so much,

and his team arrived promptly and assessed the situation. They were focused, professional, and quickly cleaned up the damage. They removed and replaced damaged drywall, removed attic insulation that was damaged, and prepared the site for restoration. There were several team members that came to my home during the 5-day process; all were very professional. I'm keeping their business card should I need this type of service ever again!

Very happy with the service we received.

After recently purchasing a home (built in 1992), I was quite distressed to one day enter my basement and find a babbling
Hawthorne Mold Remediators Provider Name Locked
shooting from one of the walls. I contacted
Hawthorne Mold Remediators Provider Name Locked
to try to determine the cause and discuss possible remedies. After doing a walk around of the house perimeter
Hawthorne Mold Remediators Provider Name Locked
determined a few areas (such as a flower bed and a sidewalk split from the house) that could be contributing to excess water gathering/leaking into the basement.
In the Basement,
Hawthorne Mold Remediators Provider Name Locked
explained that over years the probable cause was that the drainage pipes put in when the house were built were possibly crushed/caving and / or filled with silt. After walking the basement he isolated the areas that seemed to be most impacted. We discussed a few "potential" areas that he explained were impacted, but not as much, so I could, if I wanted risk not doing them. Given the efficiencies of doing such a job at one sitting, I elected to fix everything that needed fixing. He explained everything in such a way that I understood the problem/remedy. He provided me a quote that day for all the work and offered me time to make the decision. I elected to contract for the work that day.
They were able to schedule the work to begin approximately 3 weeks later (earlier than expected). It was estimated the job would take 3-4 days; it took 3. The team showed up on time (or a little early) each day and began work immediately. Everyone was kind and courteous. Most impressive (to me) was how clean they left the environment. They went to great lengths to contain the dust/particles from going throughout the house. They vacuumed each night before leaving and actually left the basement cleaner than when they came in.
The work done looks incredible. I'm now not dreading the next monsoon.

It went great. When cutting into the bedroom wall, he heard bee's in the wall. Turns out there was a hive that was getting in through the roof overhang. He had to stop his work for a couple of days while I had someone come and remove them.
He came back promptly to complete the work after the bee remediation was done.
I appreciate that they worked with me to work around the bee problem
