Just one day of exposure to moisture can cause irreparable damage and do more harm than you may notice right away. It's essential to take action to protect your investment as soon as possible.

This system works by drawing water trapped in the ground up through an opening in a drywall or concrete floor, which [...]

When examining the outside base of your home, be sure that the dirt slopes downward so that any water will flow away from your home. In the event that water settles around the base of your home, it could seep through and cause issues with mold, while also threatening the foundation. That is why [...]
When hot air meets cold air, condensation is created. Inside a crawlspace, that produces humidity which can cause an array of problems. However, it is not as if homeowners can take a simple look inside and immediately figure out the humidity level in all parts of their crawlspace. What they can do is identify any signs of condensation. Condensation is an indication that the humidity level has reached 100%. That means the air cannot hold any more moisture, which is why water starts to form condensation. Once that condensation appears, it is often followed by the growth of mold and [...]

If you are peeking in your crawlspace and notice anything similar to what Jeff is pointing out in this video then you may have a mold problem. It is important [...]
