Moisture, or wetness, in your home or business can come from many sources. First, and often most obviously, water can enter your home by leaking in or by seeping through basement walls. Weak foundations or basements can allow water to seep in, especially after rains. Moisture can also come through the air. Showers or even cooking can add moisture to the air in a home or office. The amount of moisture that the air can hold depends on the temperature of the air. As the temperature goes down, the air is able to hold less moisture. This is why, in cold weather, moisture condenses on cold surfaces (for example, drops of water form on the inside of a window).
Moisture is never good for a house or office space. It can cause stains, warp wood, and lead to mold growth.

If you have found moisture issues or want to ensure they don’t happen in the future, follow these tips to control moisture in your home or office:
Moisture problems and their solutions differ from one climate to another. The Northeast is cold and wet; Southeast is hot and dry; the South is hot and wet; and the Western Mountain states are cold and dry. All of these regions can have moisture issues and different ways to treat them. The type of construction and weatherization for different climates can lead to different problems and can have different solutions. So what works for a waterproofing company in Phoenix likely won’t work in Spartanburg.

We had extensive water intrusion that our inspector did not see. Thompson Brothers had to engage in grading, extensive digging, reinstallation of French drains, and install a new drainage field. The work was excellent. All personnel is polite, on time, and very professional. Highly recommend.
