Toxic Mold can cause a number of health problems and allergic reactions.

In cases where you have had exposure over a long period of time symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and bleeding in the lungs and nose may occur.
Your basement is an important area in your home whether you are using it for storage or have it finished as a living space for your family. This means it is imperative that you keep the area dry and free from flooding. There are a number of ways that water can enter the basement, because of this we offer a number of different waterproofing solutions and products to help keep the water under control. The primary place where we find basement leaking is where there are cracks in the foundation walls. These are usually in the concrete or at mortar joints between blocks. It can also occur with floor cracks and at the cove joint where the foundation walls and floor meet.
Regardless of the issue you are having we have solutions that will collect and remove water from your basement. If you have wall cracks, the first thing our experts will recommend is to have a wall crack repair solution installed to stop the crack growth and water leak. If water is coming in at the cove joint or other areas we can install a custom waterproofing system to help remove the water. In some more extreme cases, we may recommend installing a sump pump system to help with the removal of water. Our experts have the basement waterproofing products you need to keep your home safe.
Your foundation is possibly one of the most important structural components of your home. It not only supports the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have got foundation problems, they will normally show themselves as stair stepping cracks in block foundations and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation walls. In addition to this, you will notice that the doors will not open easily. You may also notice a problem where the basement walls have begun to bow inward. You may not think these problems are dangerous when you notice them, however, they are all indicators of a sinking or settling foundation that should be checked out by one of our experts to determine if a repair needs to be installed.
Often Times, many foundation problems stem from common issues and our team is very good at identifying these problems. We can offer a repair solution designed for your particular problem to permanently repair the foundation. If the issue is a sinking foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to bring the home back to level. Depending on how bad the damage is and the location of the damage we can use either helical piers or push piers. Both are very strong and can stabilize your foundation. If you’ve noticed bowed basement walls, depending on how much the wall is leaning, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide much neededsupport.
In the Arnold area, there are many homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years they were created with vents to the outside. These vents were created to help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, the opposite is what usually happens, having these vents allows water to get in during storms. This water tends to stay in your crawl space resulting in the humidity level staying too high causing mold growth. If you have a crawl space, up to half of the air in your home enters through the crawl space, so having the space protected from the outside and controlling excess humidity will increase the overall air quality in your home.
Our Experts has been encapsulating crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the best way to close them off and control high humidity. This is achieved using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a heavy duty line, sometimes accompanied by other waterproofing systems to keep water out of your crawl space. Encapsulation will stop bugs and animals from getting into your crawl space as well allowing you to use it for storage. Water in your crawl space can also cause saggign floors. We can install a crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
