French drains can protect you and your family in many ways. When water gets into your crawl space, basement, or anywhere in your home, it’s only a matter of time before you experience mold. Odors often accommodate leaks/moisture intrusion, because ‘off-gassing’ is a by-product of the reproduction process of fungi. Homeowners increase the risk of having air quality issues in the home if they do not address moisture issues. The array of Solutions team hand digs all French Drains. Although arduous, the proper slope is critical to the effectiveness of the drainage system. Please call Array of Solutions with any questions or concerns.
