Waterproofing

You will need the help of a professional basement waterproofing contractor if you have noticed any water in this area below your home. Sooner or later, moisture in this area of your home is going to cause a lot of expensive damage and some serious problems. This water will eventually cause wooden supports to deteriorate under your home. This decaying wood will cause issues for your home's stability and strength over time. The moisture can also trigger the growth of mold. Mold is a fungus that can make your home smell musty, and it can also lead to a variety of serious health problems 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.

Our Foundation Solutions

At Atlantis Waterproofing, we have many different foundation repair solutions that we can provide for you.

Bowed Walls

Bowed Walls

Excessive hydrostatic pressure in the earth can cause this common issue. The soil around your foundation swells up whenever it rains, or when there is melting snow on your lawn. This puts a lot of pressure on your basement walls. Eventually, it will cause them to lean or bow into the home. 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.

Wall Cracks

Wall Cracks

A crack in your foundation could be a warning sign of a larger structural problem, such as 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.

Floor Cracks

Floor Cracks

Typically speaking, a floor crack doesn't indicate that there is a bigger foundation issue at hand. However, it will still need to be filled in to prevent seepage up and through the floor due to a rising and falling water table around your foundation.

Sinking Foundation

Foundation Settlement

This problem is also caused from the soil around your home, and it's typically from poorly backfilled earth from the time when your home was being built. 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

Mold Testing and Removal in Hickman

Our team of professionals can provide you with experienced mold removal services for your Hickman 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

This fungus needs three things to live, which are excessive humidity, water, and organic materials to feed off of. Typically speaking, these three things are found inside of a basement or crawl space environment. To take care of the problem, we can install waterproofing and encapsulation systems that will take care of the problem once and for all. Our team will also be sure that surfaces are properly cleaned off and bleached so that no mold residue remains.
