Toxic Mold can cause a host of health issues or allergic reactions. Most of the time, depending on the how long you were exposed, symptoms can include headaches, fatigue, fever, irritation to the nose mouth and throat, and sneezing. 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 regardless of 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. There are a variety of areas that water can enter the basement, because of this we offer a variety of different waterproofing solutions and products to help keep the water under control. The most likely place where we find 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 collect and remove water from your basement. If you have foundation cracks, one of the solutions our experts will recommend is to have a wall crack repair solution 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 drainage 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 solutions you need to keep your home dry.
The foundation of your home is possibly one of the most important areas of your home. Not only does it support the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have got foundation issues, 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. Other times, you will see that the doors or windows 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 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.
Often Times, many foundation problems stem from similar issues and our experts are very good at identifying these issues. Our Team can offer a repair solution designed 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 stop the sinking. Depending on how bad the damage 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’ve noticed bowed basement walls, depending on how much the wall is bowing, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide much neededsupport.
In the Crownsville area, there are homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For years crawl spaces were created with open vents to the outside. These vents were designed help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, these vents don’t really work that way, having these open 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 the growth of mold. 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 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. 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.
