Black mold can cause a variety of health problems and allergic reactions. Most of the time, depending on the length of exposure, symptoms can include headaches, fatigue, fever, irritation to the nose mouth and throat, and sneezing.

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 necessary that you keep the area dry and that any excess humidity and flooding are controlled. There are a variety of areas that water can enter your basement, because of this we offer a variety of different waterproofing systems to help keep the water out of your basement. The most likely place where we find basement water leaks 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 products that will transport and remove water from your basement. If you have wall cracks, one of the first things our experts will recommend is to have a wall crack repair solution installed to control 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 dry.
Your foundation is most likely 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 issues, normally they will 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 doors will not open easily. You may also see a problem where the foundation walls have begun to lean inward. You may not think these issues are dangerous when you notice them, however, they are all indicative 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 similar issues and our experts are very good at noticing these issues. Our Experts can offer a foundation repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently repair and stabilize the foundation. If the problem is a sloping foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to stop the sinking. Depending on how bad it is and where it is 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 leaning, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide much neededsupport.
In the Crofton area, there are a number homes that were built with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years crawl spaces were created with open vents to the outside. These vents were created to help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, this is not what really happens, having these open vents allows water to get in during rain and snow storms. This water tends to stay in your crawl space resulting in the humidity level staying too high causing the growth of mold and mildew. With homes that have crawl spaces, 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 team has been encapsulating crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the best way to seal them and control humidity. This is done using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a heavy duty line, sometimes accompanied by a sump pump 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 patented crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
