Black mold can cause a variety of health problems and 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.

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 imperative that you keep the area dry and free from flooding. There are a variety of ways 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 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.
Regardless of the issue you are having we have waterproofing systems that will collect and expel water from your basement. If you have foundation 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 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 systems you need to keep your home dry.
The foundation of your home is possibly one of the most important areas of your home. It not only supports the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have got foundation issues, they will normally show themselves as stair stepping cracks in blocks and horizontal cracks that run the length of the basement walls. In addition to this, you will notice that the windows will not open easily. You may also notice a problem where the foundation walls have begun to lean inward. You may not think these issues are dangerous when you see 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 common issues and our experts are very good at noticing 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 the extent of the damage 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 bowing, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide neededsupport.
In the Odenton area, there are a number homes that were built with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many 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 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. If you have a crawl space, 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 waterproofing crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the best way to close them off and control high humidity. This is achieved 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. Moisture 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.
