Crawl Space Waterproofing
Every home is different, and when it comes to exploring options for crawl space waterproofing services, solutions will certainly differ home-to-home.
It’s important to try to identify some important warning signs that may be able to point you in the right direction, such as:
- Must odor in rooms near crawl space entrance
- Bowing, warping hardwood floors or tiles
- Dark staining on crawl space walls and floor
- Dry rot of joists and sill plate
Time to Take Action
If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms in your home, it may be time to take some action. The first thing you’ll likely notice with a leaky crawl space is that signature musty odor. As moisture accumulates, minerals and bacteria, build up and pollute the increasingly stale air trapped inside of your crawl space.
As these symptoms continue to progress and water is allowed to repeatedly enter your home, toxic black mold can begin to colonize. It’s important to recognize that black mold requires as little as 60% relative humidity and can begin to grow in as little as 24 hours.
If for no other reason, it’s important to at least have your home inspected for mold if you suspect a seepage issue, because over the long term black mold can seriously degrade the indoor air quality within your home, exposing you and your family to serious potential health risks.
John Fahmy, President of Everdry of North Georgia / Atlanta region started at Everdry’s corporate headquarters (Ohio State Waterproofing) in 1991 as a part time customer service rep.
While working part time, John pursued his Bachelors degree in Marketing and Business Management at Cleveland State University. It was John’s mission to become the best in this industry after seeing his grandparents get scammed by a fly by night waterproofing contractor, and lose lots of money, that was not there anymore when they needed service. After only one year, John was promoted to Customer Service Manager.
After a total of 8 years in the Customer Service Department, John branched out, holding his Customer Service Manager position, while taking on new responsibilities as Assistant Marketing Director and becoming an EZ Breathe Sales rep.
In 2003, John was named Director of Shows, a job that gave him the opportunity to work directly with all of the national Everdry franchise locations nationwide, providing each office with support for their marketing efforts at trade shows.
In 2004, after 13 years with the company, John and his wife Connie took on a new challenge and took over the North Georgia / Atlanta Everdry franchise. Our goal is to provide a healthy and safe living environment in homes for the families in the North Georgia / Atlanta region.
