A damp basement is a common problem in Wichita, KS, and the surrounding area. It can ruin your belongings and cause major problems in a finished basement. Mold and mildew occur frequently in a damp basement. Seeing mold and mildew in your basement or crawl space can be worrying. Not only is it a sign of water damage, in addition, but it can also be a health problem for anyone living in the home.
Unfortunately, it’s not enough to just clean up the mold & mildew. Without fixing the root of the problem, the mold will just come back over time. There are a few things that may have caused this problem. It is possible that you also have foundation cracks that may be letting in water. The slightest bit of moisture in your basement can be a problem. It is a warm, dark place where mold thrives. Even small cracks are a concern. Luckily, we can help you there!

Foundation cracks are remedied in a few different ways. One of the most permanent fixes is foundation underpinning. We will use piers from Earth Contact Products (ECP) to help lift and level your foundation, which likely caused the cracks in the first place. Underpinning utilizes piers driven into stable, load-bearing soil.
This process lifts your foundation back into the correct position, closing the cracks. As a next step, the cracks are filled.
