Basement Waterproofing Tips

Q: Why Do I Have A Wet Basement In My Southern New Jersey Home?

A: In New Jersey you have a wet basement because you live a coastal state that receives its fair share of weather events. Combine that with a low water table level. And you have basement waterproofing issues whenever a rain or snow event raises the water table.

Simple Wet Basement Fixes

You also may just need to make some adjustments to your home. Your basement becoming wet can also be caused by the grading of your soil that is up against your home. Try Grading the soil so that it slopes away from the house and runs away from your basement.

Other Issues that Cause Water Damage

Now lets set our sights on looking at your downspouts, gutters and other drainage systems. It is also imperative to make sure that all of these are helping move the water away from your house and not down into your basement making it wet.

Once you check these things and you still encounter a wet basement when it rains. Then Call Morgan Basement Waterproofing for a FREE Estimate to determine what is causing water damage to your basement.

The summer is upon us and the heat is already unbearable. With temperatures in the 90’s and above, it’s well beyond comfort. We’re opening windows, turning on fans and cranking up the air conditioners in order to beat the heat. Did you know heat like this is perfect for Mold Growth?

You may need Philadelphia Mold Remediation and not even know it.

Mold Growth can occur in moist hot temperatures between 60-85 degrees and when air condition is being used, conditions become favorable due to poorly maintained vents, filters and ac systems.

It’s important that if you see or smell mold you have it checked immediately. The ventilation systems in homes with central air only tend to spread mold spores into new areas that otherwise might have been mold free, including hallways, bedrooms, even your baby’s nursery.

Mold feeds on moisture and organic material, such as dead skin cells, wallpaper paste, paper, dust and food that maybe be undetectable among the flooring material.

It’s extremely important to maintain proper care and limit moisture expose to your home. Waterproofing services often find and remedy issue otherwise unknown until it’s too late. Also, if you see mold, chances are it’s only a small portion of what’s really there, as much of mold infestation hides behind walls and areas accessible to sight.

Be sure not to forget your basement during these hot days. While you have the AC cranked up, mold can still be spreading, even worse than you imaging. Be sure to contact a qualified expert for FREE Evaluation of your Mold Situation. 

We’re quickly approaching the Summer months and Summer weather. That means heat and humidity. That also means mold. This one of the peak times for mold to grow and spread.

Summer brings unique weather that differs from the other months. Humidity, which increases the dampness of the air and environment, also promotes mold growth and propagation. Mold removal becomes such a priority during the summer months.

Without even knowing it, mold can take hold where you least expect it to. Doorways, under carpets, back rooms, and especially basements and garages and the dampness finds it way, becomes a problem and mold spreads.

Mold also contributes greatly to allergies and allergy symptoms. Once you have mold, it spreads and grows, allowing dispersement of more mold spores into the surrounding areas, affecting the environment and inhabitation around. Mold spores spread through air, though infested clothing, building materials or attachment to other objects that carry them along. Humidity allows for transportation to be greater. Increase of discomfort to allergy suffers increases during the Summer months.

Sounds scary, but you can protect yourself with a few simple tips.

– Watch wet clothing, blankets, towels and other fabrics/materials that hold water and are left to dry over periods of time. They’re prime breeding for mold.

– Keep indoor humidity in check with the use of a dehumidifier or a ventilation system such as the EZ Breathe System. Keep the humidity below 50% and allow for air filtration to remove the mold spores from the environment.

– Check for window leaks, wall leaks and foundation leaks. Be sure to contact a qualified waterproofing and/or mold remediation specialist to assure you qualify each area of concern and don’t neglect an area that can become a problem in the future.

– Check plumbing in all areas possible to verify there are no leakages. Water spreading from even the smallest leak can cause much damage and a serious mold and health issue.

– Have the area around your home inspected for water retention. If your home has water that remains long after rain, then you may need a waterproofing expert to recommend water removal and foundation waterproofing options.

What seems like a time to play and enjoy, the Summer shouldn’t be a time when you allow your home maintenance to take a vacation. In little time, your home can be violated by water and the intrusion not noticed until mold issues are at their worst.

Winter is the perfect for Philadelphia Basement Waterproofing

Your Mold Remediation Philadelphia area needs are becoming more than an inconvenience; it’s becoming a health issue. Mold Removal in your Philadelphia area home is more important than ever. Once you have your mold issue addressed, the big consideration you need to address is Basement Waterproofing, and home waterproofing your home.

Philadelphia area homeowners with basement waterproofing concerns don’t comprehend that there is an issue until they have flooded basements or garages. In winter, there is still rain and moisture, including melting and refreezing snow. The problem becomes waterproofing problems that have accumulated over time, in many cases years and years. One bad storm, or storm upon storm, then a melt off and the issues become a disaster and an emergency.

Sure the wall may look fine, the ground dry now – inside your home. Take a look outside and see the potential crisis waiting to happen. Backed up drains, pools of water collecting at the foundation.  It’s the recipe for unexpected flooding in your home.

So, in Winter, most people tend to ignore or put off servicing issues because it can’t be done, right?

Most service requests come in Spring and Fall, but waiting until flooding occurs can cause additional issues. Foundation weakening and damage, interior wall, carpet or worse – your belongings.

Even though there is still wet, drenching weather patterns in Winter, along with Summer, Winter is one of the dryer seasons. Flooding is easier to service and control in dryer months so it’s actually on of the best times to schedule services. Why wait? A professional Basement Waterproofing service will have all the appropriate equipment to service the job during any time of year. There’s no need for worry if you chose the proper contractor to perform the job.

Set up a FREE onsite evaluation and estimate today and don’t wait until it’s too late. The water won’t wait to do it’s damage, let us help remove it from your home.

Mold is still a huge problem in Philadelphia area homes in the winter time. Just because it’s not hot outside, doesn’t mean mold can’t grow. Mold Inspections are equally important in the Winter months, and often it’s the most ignored time of year for Mold Remediation.

Why?

The perception is that the colder temperatures make it less likely that mold removal and mold diagnosis is needed. Whether you live in Philadelphia, or one of the suburbs, you’re not immune because of colder temperatures. In fact, homes with heating systems turned up to higher than normal temperatures and at risk as much or more during this time of the year.

Be sure to keep areas that are moisture prone as dry as possible. Mold thrives in warm, moist environments, such as vents, bathrooms and other similar areas in your residence. This includes keeping everything clean as well. Remember, mold can be killed, but mold that’s not will return, breed, spread and cause more than just structural and visual damage.

Improper mold inspection and mold removal can lead to mold returning and spreading even worse than before clean up. This is because of a fall sense of security from believing the mold has been removed and bad mold prevention practiced that often return.

Remembering that the Winter isn’t a time when mold takes it’s holiday is important in the mold removal battle. Be sure to follow mold prevention tips and don’t put off any mold inspection you might be considering.
