All kinds of activities contribute to polluting the indoor air we breathe. Surprisingly, mold spores & radon gases can be found in your own home, including your basement and crawlspace. In high enough concentrations, these pollutants can seriously harm you.

The average adult breathes over 3,000 gallons of air, 40%-50% of which comes from your basement or crawlspace, every day. Children breathe even more air per pound of body weight and are more susceptible to air pollution. Senior Citizens are also more sensitive to air pollution because they often have heart or lung disease. People exposed to high enough levels of certain air pollutants may experience burning in their eyes, an irritated throat, or breathing difficulties. Long-term exposure to air pollutions, such as radon gas can cause lung cancer.

Mold, fungus and other organic organisms can cause long-term damage to the human immune, neurological, reproductive, and respiratory systems.
Basement Mold & Mildew
Mold and mildew microorganisms are everywhere and will grow under certain conditions. An environment that has water (moisture) and organic material (food source) will advance the growth of mold. Mold will continue to grow if a moisture problem is undiscovered or unaddressed. Mold can emit toxic particles that will travel through the air.

Prevent mold growth in Your Basement
problems in basement The best and most cost effective strategy to managing the growth of mold and mildew is to prevent the intrusion of water and moisture into the basement and to control the humidity. basement mold
Eliminating organic material (food source) or using mold resistant material will help, but the truth of the matter is that there are too many food sources in the basement to prevent mold from growing by eliminating just one. Mold will eventually grow on all surfaces. The only effective way to control mold is to control moisture and humidity. Basement & Radon Solutions install and service a full line of self draining dehumidification products to handle all sizes of basements and crawl spaces.

What you can't see...
Basements with any degree of humidity or water are responsible for an unpleasant odor that sometimes proves to be a health hazard for anyone with allergies or a sensitive respiratory system. Undetected moisture and water, perhaps behind a basement finished wall, can create an environment for mold and mildew to grow.

Closed System Basement Waterproofing Drainage
"Healthier for your family and your foundation"
We always recommend a closed basement Waterproofing system; any open system in a foundation or slab can elevate radon levels in the home. Radon testing is highly recommended after making waterproofing repairs to the foundation, slab or sealing/encapsulating a crawl space.

The heart of a closed system is an ingenious dual chamber drainage channel that is unique in the industry and provides a way to draw water from the outside walls as well as from the center of the basement.

Placed in a shallow trench they work together with a specially designed basement wall vapor barrier system to direct all water and moisture into a drainage conduit. Access ports, strategically located along the system allow for easy inspection make certain the system continues to work efficiently for years.

An airtight Grate Sump liner encases a reliable Pro-Series pump or an optional battery backup system. Together with the sump liner, it is mounted in a manner that does not undermine the integrity of the foundation. A double pump float switch that makes sure it turns on when it's supposed to assure its dependability.

The system does not stop there, as it continues to the exterior of the home with our exterior drainage products which are crucial to our interior drainage system to properly drain water away from your foundation. See all of our water proofing products.
