    Mold and Mildew
    in the Basement

    We can’t get rid of the mold and mildew because it’s always so damp and wet in our basement. We can’t get fresh air, and it’s a safety hazard.

A few things to keep in mind about water:

  • A) Water pressure against your foundation- hydrostatic pressure, increases the stress pushing against your foundation, exhibiting an increase in the strain on your foundation. Cracks are common as the stress continues to push against the foundation. As this stress increases, walls may begin to push inward and eventually collapse.
  • B) Our soils in the region are acidic in nature, which lead to acidic groundwater. This acid slowly eats away at the concrete and mortar, dissolving the lime, leaving behind the sand. This dissolving of the cement and mortar severely compromises the structural integrity of the foundation, allowing the walls to push in even easily.
  • C) The only way to inhibit this dual action against the foundation is to remove the hydrostatic pressure along the walls. By removing majority of the water within the back-filled area surrounding the house, the hydrostatic pressure is decreased significantly and the chemical reactions, which can ruin the foundation, are diminished.

Sump Pump

A good sump pump is your final line of defense against indoor flooding.

Basement flooding is most often caused by water build up in the soil that makes its way into your basement. A sump pump is used to pump out water from the lowest section of the basement before the water level reaches the basement floor.

Effective sump pumps need to be operational round the clock to avoid flooding and overflowing the sump pit. Many pumps come with a battery backup power supply that will pump water out of the house for an extended period of time in case the primary power system fails.

While installing sump pumps, it might be useful to also include perimeter drainage in your crawl space or basement. Otherwise you must be prepared to push excess water into the sump pump well when necessary. You also need to stow your drainage system and all items – especially the electrical ones – up off the flower, at such times.

Why is a Sump Pump So Important to Solving Your Web Basement Problems?

A sump pump is an electrical pump installed in a home’s basement to pump water either outside or into the home’s drainage pipe system. It usually works in combination with a sump well or sealed sump crock pit. The sump pit collects the water before discharging it to a chosen location.

Our Professionals Evaluate the Following

  • The amount of water you generally get in the basement when it rains.
  • Overall length and height of the discharge line.
  • Optimum discharge location(s), so water will not run back against the foundation.

Research Indicates That Mold Can Be Extremely Harmful

Mold consists of naturally occurring microscopic organisms, which reproduce by spores. They break down and feeds on organic matter in the environment. Mold spores spread through the air, and the combination of excessive moisture and organic matter allows for their growth.

Not all, but certain types and amounts of mold can lead to adverse health effects, and/or visible residue growth ranging in color from orange to green, brown, and/or black. Often there is a musty odor present. Reducing moisture in your home and keeping it properly clean significantly reduces the chance of mold growth.

Mold Spreads Quickly in Your Home, and It Can Also Spread Through Your Body

Mold spores float through the air and we inhale them into our lungs. They spread in the warm, moist internal environment. Spores grow in the bathroom, behind walls, under floors, through the ceiling, vents, under carpets, and wherever they can find sufficient place to spread. They creep through your walls, your floorboards, and flourishes in plain sight, and even in the remotest, darkest corners.
