DryShield has added a free online estimation tool to their site. This tool offers quotes for residential and commercial waterproofing projects.


Toronto, Ontario, March 05, 2018 — Wet basement is a common problem nowadays. Some of the common signs of the problem are musty odour, mould, corrosion, stains on walls, paint peeling off, and rusting. Generally, it could be caused by many reasons.

Some of the common causes of the problem are condensation, cracks in concrete basement walls, leaking or broken pipe, sump pump not working, blocked, leaking or damaged gutters, leaking window well, inappropriate surface drainage, obstruction in downspout, sewer water backup and hydrostatic pressure.

It is essential to deal with the abovementioned problem as soon as possible. In case the problem is left unaddressed for a long time, it could intensify and cause damage to the items that might be stored in the underground room. When left unaddressed, water could cause damage to the walls, drywall, hardwood flooring and support beams. When not attended timely, the abovementioned problem could affect the structural integrity of the house.

Also, stagnant water could cause pest infestation and the growth of mould and mildew. Mould generally grows on ceiling, carpet, wood, tiles and painted walls. Once air moves from wet underground room, mildew spores and mould could spread in the air throughout the structure. Furthermore, dampness in the room could cause damage to the wooden structures. Also, dampness or water in the underground room could weaken the foundation of house.

Luckily, there’re numerous solutions to the abovementioned problem. Hiring a professional waterproofing contractor, such as DryShield, is a good option as the contractor has the required experience and skill set. The company specializes in wet basement Toronto repairs, basement crack repair, interior and exterior waterproofing solutions.

DryShield’s techniques of waterproofing include covering the cellar walls with weeping tiles, protective coatings, sealers and membranes. The sealers avert the water from getting into basement, whereas the weeping tile averts flooding in the underground room. They utilize membranes like an exterior protective layer in order to avert wall damage.

Recently, the company has added a free online estimation tool to their site. This tool offers quotes for residential and commercial waterproofing projects. Also, the tool offers quotes for concrete crack injection, interior and exterior waterproofing.

Patients’ guide to Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

USA, February 13, 2018 — Intermountain Medical Imaging published an outstanding visual patients’ guide to Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). The visual asset created by Intermountain Medical Imaging comprises valuable information about the history of MRI and the future along with the recent advances in MRI. Magnetic Resonance Imaging uses a magnetic field and pulses or radio wave energy to make pictures of organs and structures inside the body.

The infographic entitled “Patients Guide to Medical Resonance Imaging” aims to help understanding Magnetic Resonance Imaging explaining the technology and the difference from a Computed Tomography (CT) scan or an X-ray. What is more, the advent of 3T MRI is described within the infographic as well as the best uses for 3T. Recently, MR machines with higher “3 Tesla” field strength have moved out of the research realm and entered into clinical settings. According to the infographic, 3T is best used for brain injuries and concussion, epilepsy and brain function, musculoskeletal and heart diseases.

In fact, doctors use MRI to examine the brain, pelvic region, spine, blood vessels, heart and abdomen. The future of MRI is also touched by the infographic. Medical researchers are working on combining MRI machines with other imaging with other imaging equipment in order to make it easier and faster to diagnose and treat patients. Combining MRI and PET into one helps reduce the stress placed on patients when it comes to these time-consuming tests.

As far as the creator of this great infographic is concerned, Intermountain Medical Imaging was established in August of 1999 in downtown Boise, the first imaging center to offer 3T MRI in Southwest Idaho. Intermountain Medical Imaging offers both a 1.5T MRI option with their Siemens 1.5T MRI scanner and a 3T MRI option with their Philips Ingenia 3T MRI. The 3T MRI has almost 2.3 feet diameter opening to provide a full foot of space over the patient’s head. This allows a new level of comfort for their patients.

Impacts, Causes and Solution to Leaky Basement Problem

Water seepage in basement is a widespread problem nowadays. In case the problem is left unaddressed for a long period of time, it causes flooding in the underground room. Besides flooding in the underground room, constant exposure to moisture causes damage to the goods stored in the room.  Also, moisture seepage in the underground room causes mould, mildew, fungus and rust.

Common Causes of Seepage and Leakage

Some of the common causes of seepage and leakage in basement are cracks on walls, hydrostatic pressure, air movement, burst pipes, inadequately installed, faulty or clogged drainage system, leaking window well, debris in gutters, sump pump not working and sewer water backup.

Leaking cracks in the walls are generally caused by the hydrostatic pressure exertion. Hydrostatic pressure generally arises when the water table of the area rises. The water table rises when the groundwater level increases.

The exerted pressure causes the formation of cracks in the foundation. Furthermore, the hydrostatic pressure pushes water into the underground room through the wall cracks. If left unrepaired for a long period of time, small crevices turn into large fissures that allow water from outside, moisture and radon gas to enter the property.

Solution to the Issue

One of the best ways to get rid of the abovementioned issues is basement waterproofing. It is a useful technique of directing the water from the exterior, thus, stopping and preventing the leaks in the underground room walls. Also, it not only raises the value of the property, but also prevents mould growth and water from getting into the underground room and causing damage to wood, walls and foundation of the house.

It’s good to hire a waterproofing contactor, such as DryShield, in order to safeguard the cellar from water seepage and damage. DryShield offers basement waterproofing services in Toronto. The company has a team of technicians.

First of all, they inspect the underground room and other areas of home that need waterproofing. During inspection, they identify the problem and its cause. After identifying the problem and its cause, they formulate a plan of action and discuss it with the homeowners. Furthermore, they advise homeowners the appropriate and cost-efficient basement waterproofing technique.

The technicians not only specialize in basement waterproofing, but also have expertise in carrying out concrete crack repair with epoxy and polyurethane injection techniques. They’ve the required experience and tools for repairing basement wall cracks.

Causes and Solution of Cracks in Basement

Basements are mostly used for entertainment, storage and recreational purposes. Unfortunately, witnessing cracks on basement wall & floor defeats the different purposes of usage and indicates the possibility of critical water & moisture seepage problems happening in a really short time.

Crevices are generally seen in older basements and are developed because of groundwater, swelling & hydrostatic pressure of soil against walls as well as expansion and contraction of soil underneath the basement. Shifting and settling of house also causes poured concrete basement foundation to develop crevices on walls.

Well, gaps on basement walls allow ground water, acidic water and dampness to leak into the basement from the outside and cause mould & mildew growth as well as mosquito infestation that spread infectious diseases like dengue fever, malaria, chikungunya, etc.

Best Solution for the Problem

Issues arising from gaps become more severe after a while and bring extensive damage to properties, in case not addressed. The most convenient and affordable way to fix structural and leaking cracks in poured foundation walls is crack injection. The main objective of the crack injection method is to permanently seal the gap by injecting liquid polyurethane foam resin into it.

The method involves the use of polyurethane resin, surface ports that allow the injecting foam to flow into and fill the crevice and grease gun that injects the resin into the ports glued into the holes drilled alongside the crack. The ports let the resin material to flow all over the gap in the foundation. Before injection, surface or steel ports glued with epoxy adhesive are fixed into the holes to make sure that the injected foam material does not drop from the front of the crack.

The injection kit uses polyurethane foam to inject it into the crack in the basement foundation wall and fill it completely. Not like other methods of crack repair, polyurethane spreads completely into the crack, fills it and glues to the cement. It stays quite flexible in due course in order that even though the foundation shifts or moves again the polyurethane foam resin will move with it and prevents the crack from happening again.

In order to completely seal the cracks and retain the structural reliability and integrity of properties, it is essential for homeowners to take specialized assistance for basement crack repair. The best way to ensure that the problem is resolved efficiently is to hire a specialized basement crack injection repair company, such as DryShield. The technicians of DryShield have the experience, knowledge, skills and tools required to repair wall and floor cracks.

Reason Why It Is Important to Waterproof Ontario Homes and Basements before winters

Winters are coming. The time is approaching when snowfall will once again hit the cities and suburbs in Ontario. Once again the Ontario homes and buildings are about to get damaged due to the dampness caused by melting snow.  As usual, homeowners are not bothered by the upcoming threat to their properties.

Melting snow on flat roof leads to a series of troubles like dampness on bedroom and basement walls and dampness promotes the growth of mould, mildew, mosquitoes, fungi and other harmful microorganisms. Besides melting snow the other factors that cause wetness in basement and damp patches on internal walls are cracks, sewer water backup, clogged drain pipes, and rain water going under house.

All such factors wreak havoc on the foundation and destruct the structural reliability & integrity of homes and buildings. Once the foundation of structure has weakened and its structural reliability has compromised, it not only becomes unsafe for the inhabitants, but also poses whole structure collapse risk in the locality.

The Myth and the Reality of Ontario Homes and Their Owners

Many homeowners believe that simple paintwork and tile work can permanently hide the damp patches on walls. However, applying paint or tiles to damp spots on walls is not a permanent solution for the reason that the wet spots come out of newly painted walls and above tiles within one or two weeks.

The only solution to get rid of dampness, permanently cover wet spots on interior walls and put a stop to mould & mildew growth is waterproofing. However, waterproofing is not something that every homeowner or construction company or contractor is aware of and interested in.

Experience and Knowledge Does Matter
