Mold Growth in Charleston
When a basement in the Charleston area cannot prevent exterior seepage of groundwater, damage to the building materials, water heater, softener, and the concrete blocks can be the result. SERVPRO has WRT and ASD applied structural drying technicians that understand the situation and can take the appropriate action. The water seepage can be remedied with a waterproofing material on the interior walls after the mold has been removed and an antifungal agent applied. The exterior foundation needs a careful inspection and service to ensure that the groundwater does not penetrate the cinder blocks. Hydraulic cement, adjusting the grade away from the structure, and a drainage system may be needed. SERVPRO can help and direct the homeowner to achieve a permanent solution to the dampness in the basement. We offer comprehensive services to our customers, both residential and commercial.
