Black mold is commonly referred to as potentially the most dangerous and toxic mold 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 variety of health issues or allergic reactions. In most cases, 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 necessary that you keep the area free of flooding. There are several areas that water can enter the basement, because of this we offer several different repair solutions 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 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.
Regardless of the issue you are having we have waterproofing systems that will collect and expel water from your basement. If you have wall 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 coming in at the cove joint or other areas we can install a specialized 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 solutions you need to keep your home safe.
Your foundation is possibly one of the most important structural components of your home. Not only does it support the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have got foundation issues, they will normally show themselves as stair stepping cracks in block foundations and horizontal cracks that run the length of the basement walls. Other times, you will notice that the windows will not open easily. You may also notice a problem where the basement walls have begun to press inward or bow. 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.
Thankfully, many foundation problems stem from similar issues and our experts are very good at identifying these issues. Our Experts can offer a foundation repair solution designed for your particular problem to permanently repair the foundation. If the problem is a sagging foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to level the foundation. 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 notice 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 neededsupport.
In the Fort George area, there are homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For years they were created with crawl space vents to the outside. These vents were intended help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, these vents don’t really work that way, having these crawl space 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 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 team has been encapsulating crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the most efficient way to seal them and control high humidity. This is done using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a waterproof 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 tested crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
