Mold is typically dark green or black in color, and it can create a lot of headaches, quite literally, for you and your family. You are able to protect your home against serious damage by getting in touch with our professionals ASAP when you see water under your home.

Indications of a Foundation Problem:
- Windows and doors don't open or close like they should
- Cracks show up along window and door frames

Our Foundation Solutions
When it comes to taking care of structural problems, we have many different systems we can provide.
Excessive hydrostatic pressure in the earth can cause this common issue. When the earth absorbs moisture after a heavy rain, it will swell up. This puts a lot of pressure on your basement walls. Eventually, it will cause them to lean or bow into the home. To fix the problem, we can install wall anchors, wall braces, and wall supports to provide the extra strength needed to keep the walls in place and stable.
A crack in your foundation could be a warning sign of a larger structural problem, such as settlement. Our team of experts will be able to determine the cause of the crack and get it dealt with so it doesn't cause more problems. This crack will also need to be sealed so that moisture can't seep inside.
These cracks typically do not pose a problem for the structural integrity of a home, but they still need to be filled in and sealed to prevent moisture from seeping in through the ground and causing damage.
This is another common structural problem seen on homes all over the region. To fix the problem, we can install foundation piers next to the damaged wall(s). The piers will be installed deep within the earth in stable, load-bearing strata. The weight of your home can be shifted off of the weakened foundation and onto the piers themselves.
Mold Testing and Removal Professionals
We have many years of experience handling mold removal in Algood area homes. Sadly, there are many people who don't fully understand the dangers of having this fungus growing in their homes. However, it can cause a wide variety of serious health problems. including: headaches, fatigue, skin rashes, allergies, asthma attacks, coughing, sneezing, eye irritation, and other unwanted medical conditions. Additionally, this dark green or black fungus can make your entire home smell very musty and un-welcoming. This can really take away from the natural charm and appeal of your home.
Causes of Mold Growth
When it comes to the growth and survival of this fungus, it is going to need only three things to live, which are water, organic materials to feed off of, and excessive humidity (moisture in the air). More times than not, these three "ingredients" are found inside of a basement or crawl space environment which aren't waterproofed or sealed. To take care of the problem, we can install waterproofing and encapsulation systems that will take care of the problem once and for all. We will also be sure to clean off surfaces to get rid of the nasty mold that is already growing.
