Do you have an unfinished basement and notice puddles on the floor from time to time?

Basement Cracks and Waterproofing
There are many homes and properties in Toronto and surrounding areas, which have small, unfinished basements. If these properties are not properly maintained, a foundation problem will be inevitable. With age, the home starts to deteriorate and cracks will form. If the exterior has not been properly waterproofed, water will drain into the basement causing water to pool and in many cases, cause mold to grow. If you live or own one of these homes, and suffer from water damage, give us a call and we will arrange for a foundation expert to come and assess. They will let you know if waterproofing is necessary or if your basement contains any cracks.
Running along with the fact that there are older homes in Toronto and GTA, window leaking is very common. If new, up to code windows have not been installed, there is a good chance that there could be leaking going on. Building code even 10 years ago is not the same as it is today. Insulation & sealing was not done properly which has caused many issues as far as water damage. If you suspect that your window is leaking, we work with the GTA’s most reputable Window and Door companies. We can ensure that with the help of their expertise, the outside weather will not enter your home.

Secondary Water Damages
Secondary damages will occur if there is a major flood or if a water damage has not been cleaned up properly or in time. Theses damages can incur major additional costs, so it is best to prevent as much secondary damage as possible.
Types of Secondary Damage:
- Mold Growth
- Wood Rot
- Electrical Hazards
- Corrosion of metal materials; plumbing
- Damaged flooring; warped or lifting
- Drywall and Ceiling damage
In order to prevent secondary damage, you must act fast. Call us in as soon as you are aware of the damage and we will start the dry out process. If there is a lot of sitting water and carpet is involved, pull back the carpet and take out the under pad. The water gets trapped in the under pad and will just sit there. If it is there for more than 24 hours than mold growth can start.
