What you should know about mold.


  • Mold Is Mold: While some strains of mold are more toxic than others, none are healthy, and all mold is remediated the same way.
  • Moisture Is the Problem: If your house is moldy, the real problem is water infiltration and/or prolonged humidity levels over 60%. Unless you correct the water and humidity problems, you’re never going to get rid of the mold.
  • Do More Than Kill Mold: Mold should be removed by scrubbing away the mold growth, replacing wet materials, and fixing moisture problems.
  • Repairs Can Be Expensive: Mold growth can point to larger problems such as leaks, poor drainage, or foundation problems. Have Home Defense conduct a mold test and analyze air samples in your home today.

Reasons.

  • Tree roots growing into sewer lines is a common problem in the Belleville Area.
  • A sagging sewer line. Sagging sewer lines happen over time—especially if your home and pipes are old.  When a sewer line begins to sag, waste cannot easily exit the home and clogs can occur.
  • Debris.  Mud, clay, grass, and leaves can get into your sewer line and cause a stoppage or even a break.
