Black 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 variety of health problems and allergic reactions. Most of the time, depending on the how long the mold has been present, symptoms can include rashes, coughing, headaches, and fatigue. 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 and that any excess humidity and flooding are controlled. There are several ways that water can enter your basement, because of this we offer several different waterproofing solutions to help keep the water under control. The most likely 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.
Whatever the issue you are having we have products that will collect and expel 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 product 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 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 products you need to keep your home safe.
The foundation of your home is possibly 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 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 walls. In addition to this, you will see that the 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 notice 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 problems stem from common issues and our experts are very good at identifying these issues. Our Team can offer a foundation repair solution designed 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 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 bowing, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide much neededsupport.
In the Friendship area, there are homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For years crawl spaces 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. 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 benefit the overall air quality in your home.
Our team has been providing crawl space encapsulation since we opened our doors, and we know the best way to close them off and control high humidity. This is best achieved using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a sealing 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.
