Does My Home Need Waterproofing Services?

October 27, 2015

With the pending winter season, New Jersey homeowners have many things to consider when it comes to preparing their homes and repairing existing conditions. Indoor air quality starts with air testing where the results are processed by an EPA certified laboratory. Once these test results are processed and sent to the homeowner, allergens, mold and bacteria circulating within the home and ductwork can be identified and eliminated. Blue Planet is your one stop environmental home technology company that can identify and solve any problem in your home. Whether you have an outlet that isn’t working or a foundation that is leaking water into your basement, the Blue Planet team offers complete repair, remodel, or new construction solutions. From mold remediation to that new bathroom you have been dreaming of, our in house team of experts is there for you.

It is not unusual for air quality testing to indicate the presence of mold spores growing in the home. And mold in the home means WATER! Mold must have high humidity, excessive water vapor in the air, or actual water infiltrating the structure of the building to grow and propagate. If your home has moisture issues of any kind, you are risking your family’s health and even the structural integrity of your home. If your home has moisture issues, Blue Planet provides expert complete solutions. Is your foundation leaking? Call us today at 732-201-7410 for a free inspection of problem areas in your home.

Common Warning Signs

In many cases, New Jersey homes that are in need of waterproofing services will give off clear, solid warning signs that there is a problem which needs addressing. Other times, however, issues will present themselves in a much more subtle manner. Here are a few things to look out for:

  • You currently have mold issues or have had mold in the past.
  • Standing water is in your basement or crawlspace.
  • Your foundation was built with a floating slab or open channel around the perimeter.
  • Water comes into your basement when it rains.
  • Your basement slab flooring is always damp or wet.
  • A musty or damp smell

While water leakage can occur in any room within a home, the basement is one of the most common culprits. A leaky basement can lead to a variety of problems, such as poor indoor air quality and structural issues over time. If left unaddressed, it can create the perfect breeding grounds for mold growth, which must then be remediated in order to ensure that it’s safe for you and your family to live in your home.

Blue Planet Has the Solution

Don’t panic. Call us as soon as you notice issues with excessive moisture or water leakage. While it may look like a doomsday scenario, foundation repair in New Jersey is quite often inexpensive and simple. Cracks and leaks in the foundation are normally the cause for moisture and standing water, and while there may be periods where rain is sparse and you don’t have a problem, the overall issue will never get better on its own. In fact, it will get worse as the water relentlessly attacks your foundation and slab. The most effective solution is to work with a trusted team of waterproofing professionals, and we’re here to help. And water management is what we do.

At Blue Planet, we have extensive experience with water management issues and have seen every scenario imaginable. Our team of home performance professionals will devise a plan and specific protocol that suits your home and fits your budget, putting moisture issues in the past where they belong.
