If there are moisture problems beneath your home, you need to be sure that they are taken care of quickly before they get any worse and lead to additional damage. Water here is never a good thing, and it always finds the path of least resistance. This means that moisture could make its way into your home over the top of the foundation (yard drainage problems), through a leaking window with a clogged well, through wall or floor cracks, in by way of the cove joint (where the wall and floor meet), up through a clogged floor drain, or the moisture could be there because of a plumbing issue.
Regardless of WHY the water is there, we can get to the bottom of the problem and recommend the best course of action for getting the issue resolved once and for all. This means that you will never again need to worry about your basement leaking after a heavy downpour, or when there is melting snow on your lawn.

If there is moisture and humidity beneath your home, it is only a matter of time until mold starts growing. This is a dark green or black fungus, and it can grow on walls, floors, ceilings, or boxes. The fungus can result in very poor indoor air quality for your family, and can also trigger a number of serious health problems. To take care of the problem, we will need to take care of both the moisture and humidity problems. This can be accomplished through waterproofing products and dehumidifiers.
Excessive humidity, which is moisture in the air, is able to get into your home through cracks in the basement walls or floors, or it can even get inside through a floor drain or cove joint. To take care of the problem, we can install a dehumidifier which runs automatically. We have many different sizes and capacities available, and our team will help you to choose the best unit for your home's needs.
