One of the best ways to deal with mold in the home is to prevent it from happening in the first place. Comprehensive Mold Management has helped many area homeowners and businesses avoid mold problems by taking a proactive approach. Utilizing our experience and technology, we can detect and treat areas that are susceptible to mold growth, thus preventing the more costly expense of removing the threat after it happens. We can identify and correct structural or environmental problems before they become the cause of mold. People purchasing a new home are encouraged to mold-proof their property. Home inspectors sometimes miss detecting mold and the buyer is left to deal with the expense of removal and repair. Mold prevention services we offer include:
- French Drains
- Drain Tile & Sump Pump Installation
- Gutters and Downspouts
- Drill Weep Holes
Weep Holes For Cinder Block Walls
Why do we suggest and drill weep holes in your basement cinder block walls? Ground water from outside sources penetrates the block. Sometimes this fills up the cavities of the blocks. Weep holes on the inside of the basement at the floor line allow the drainage of the blocks below the floating slab down to the drain tile. This keeps the walls dry when there is a ground water or a high water table.
