Basement Waterproofing Professionals
You will need the help of a professional basement waterproofing contractor if you have noticed any water in this area below your home. When you have water in your basement, it's going to lead to a lot of problems. This water will eventually cause wooden supports to deteriorate under your home. When these materials start to fall apart, so will your home. The moisture can also trigger the growth of mold. Mold is typically dark green or black in color, and it can create a lot of headaches, quite literally, for you and your family. Avoid these problems entirely by getting your leaks taken care of immediately by professionals in the business who have the experience and supplies needed to get the job done right, and done right the first time.

Indications of a Structural Problem:

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. All of this moisture will put a lot of force on your foundation walls. Ultimately, it will cause them to bend or bow into the basement environment. To take care of this issue, our team will be able to install special wall anchors, braces, and support systems to strengthen the wall and keep it properly supported.
Sometimes, a cracked foundation could be an indication that something more serious is going on with the structure, including settlement. We will need to figure out the cause of the problem and address it at the source. 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 take care of the issue, we will install foundation piers. Installation can be done quickly, and in practically any kind of weather. The weight of your home can be shifted off of the weakened foundation and onto the piers themselves.
Mold Removal Professionals
Atlantis Waterproofing can provide you with professional mold removal services for your Corryton area home. Unfortunately, there are many homeowners who don't understand how dangerous this fungus can be in their homes. This is something you need to get rid of immediately because it can cause a variety of serious medical problems, including: asthma attacks, skin rashes, eye irritation, allergies, headaches, and more. What's more is that this fungus can make your entire home smell very musty, similar to dirty gym socks.
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.
