Toxic Mold is potentially one of the most toxic molds that exists. However, by being able to identify black mold and understand how to test for and remove it, we can help to keep your home free of toxic black mold.
Black mold can cause a host of allergic reactions and health problems. Most of the time, depending on the length of exposure, symptoms can include chronic fatigue or headaches, fever, irritation to the eyes, mucous membranes of the mouth, nose, and throat, sneezing, rashes, and chronic coughing. 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 or not 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. There are several areas that water can enter the basement, because of this we offer several different waterproofing solutions and products to help keep the water out of your home. The primary place where we find basement leaking is where there are cracks in the foundation walls. These are usually in the mortar joints between blocks and cracks in your concrete wall. It can also occur with floor cracks and at the cove joint where the foundation walls and floor meet.
Whatever the issue you are having we have products that will collect and remove water from your basement. If you have leaky wall cracks, one of the solutions our experts will recommend is to have a wall crack repair product installed to stop the crack growth and water leak. If water is entering 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.
The foundation of your home is most likely one of the most important support structures of your home. It not only supports the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have got foundation problems, they can show themselves as stair stepping cracks in bricks outside of your home and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation or along the basement walls. In addition to this, you will see that the windows will not open easily. You may also see a problem where the basement walls have begun to press inward or bow. You may not think these problems are dangerous when you observe them, however, they are all indicative of a sinking or settling foundation that should be checked out by a professional to determine if a repair needs to be installed.
Luckily, many foundation issues stem from similar issues and our experts are very good at identifying these problems. Our Team can offer a repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently fix the foundation. If the problem is a sagging foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to bring the home back to level. Depending on how bad it 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 have got bowed basement walls, depending on how much the wall is buckling, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide neededsupport.
In the Chester area, there are a number homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For 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 heavy rain. 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 entering your home enters through the crawl space, so having the space protected from the outside and controlling excess humidity will benefit the overall air quality in your home.
Our Experts has been waterproofing crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the most efficient way to close them off and control mold. This is done 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. Moisture 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.
