"We originally hired Pioneer to advise on a project done poorly by a prior contractor. The rep who visited our home was very honest and helpful and said that a masonry" expert would be better, and offered to send one afterwards for the same price we paid for our Angie's list deal. In the end, we had the dehumidifier installed to correct some other moisture problems in our basement. They were really pleasant to work with. The installation of the unit took less than an hour! They were prompt and professional.

Angie's Answers

Mold in a basement is a common problem. My company helps people with this every day. Some of the answers you received were helpful but not all the information is correct. First, you need to eliminate the two main ingrediants that mold needs to survive. The first one is water intrusion. This is a must. I am assuming you have no water intrusion as you make no mention. The second componant that needs to be eliminated is moisture. Moisture is also humidity. Basements need to be kept airtight in the summer months. Some folks have posted that you need air flow in your basement. Nothing could be furthur from the truth. When you open any windows for example, not one micron of air goes out of the basement, Warm humid air is sucked into the basement. Houses suck air into the basement and it meets the cool surfaces and skyrockets humidity. The windows must be kept closed and a dehumidification device installed to ensure humidity stays below 60% humidity. The dehumidifier should be energy star rated and purchasing a seperate humidity guage is a must to monitor the unit's progress. We like to keep our customer's basements at 50% humidity. This eliminates the smell that is active mold spore growth. Once the water and humidity is brought under control. Remove the organic materials that have mold on them. Walls, sheetrock and studs that have been affected. Follow the advice of previous posts as you must ensure that you do not affect the rest of the home. Once removed, install new walls using as much inorganic material as possible. We also install vapor barrier over the walls and seal the floors to stopwater vapor transmission into the basement. Poly plastic is not a acceptable vapor barrier. It is not "zero-perm" and will still allow moisture transmission. It will also crack and break into pieces over the years. A PVC liner rated "zero-perm" is the correct product in this application. Depending how large the basement is and if it is sectioned off will determine the dehumidifier strength. We use the Santa Fe line of dehidifiers as they are super energy efficiant and work like a dehumidifier on steriods. I hope this helps and I wish you the best in Basement Health!
?

Where is the home located, what is the exterior wall construction and type, how is the space heated?

 

It could be a whole host of different scenarios that would generate that result.  It is nearly impossible to tell but I would say that most basement moisture problems are a result of bulk moisture intrusion or condensation issues. 

 

Given the deep and hard winter this year, it could be a condensation issue that hadn't previously been shown.

was extremely professional from start to finish.
gave me a very detailed estimate of the work to be perfomed and spent a great deal of time explaining why, where and how things would be done.
He and his crew were on time both days and finished in less time than was expected. They were respectful ...More and professional. I couldn't have asked for a better contractor.

The provider came to my basement to smell my basement and said I needed Dehumidifier‎. that was it. He did not want to hear about my problems he was in a hurry after being late 15-20. He wanted to go upstair sit and tell me about the $4000.00 Dehumidifier‎ and how i was going to get 20% off and what a great deal it was. He did not car or ...More did not even look at nothing around my basement. I would not and will not recomment this company to anyone. They are into sales, nothing else. Thank god I paid only 49.00. Which was a waste of even that amount.

I asked to have my basement waterproofed due to flooding. After quoting a price of $5800.00 he asked for a deposit. I asked for his credentials, license, insurance, etc. and he never responded to my request. I would ask for more specifics about the process of waterproofing the basement and he would send me to the website. There he list 3 or 4 things ...More in very vague terms. I wrote him several times and it would take him more than a week to respond. My last email to him was in June of 2013 asking again for his credentials. It is now September 2013 and I have not heard from him. He was quick to contact me and ask me for a 20% deposit.
He was obviously only interested in selling his product. I have since then done some further research and discerned that his process would have been a waste of money. When I asked about attacking the problem from the exterior he was insistent that that approach was not necessary. The work on the exterior was indeed the correct approach and I am no longer have several inches of water flooding my basement. I have since that time found someone else to do the finishing of the interior walls and floor.

I thought the meeting went very well. After I explained the problem areas in the basement, he made a thorough inspection of the basement inside and then the perimeter of my house. He pointed out places outside that need to be landscaped to prevent the water from pooling.

Man was extremely helpful and informative over the phone and then came to take a look at my place. He spent more than an hour looking things over and ended up advising us not to move forward with any repair work. He said the repairs would be costly, and this years rains were unusually strong. To save us unnecessary repairs he ...More suggested I keep an eye on the water damage and call him if it continued to get worse. A few months later and we are dry as a bone here, but it helps to know I have such a helpful team in my rolodex if anything should happen again.

They were the most unprofessional company I have ever seen. They tore down important joists (which we had to have repaired). They made holes in the walls in which more water came in. They never finished the job according to the contract. They did an illegal tie-in to the sewer. I had to take them to court to get my money back, and I did. They are crooks ...More who keep changing their name and phone numbers. Do not use these people!

from pioneer was punctual, friendly, and knowledgeable. He shared a lot of expertise with me, and gave good objective advice--without giving me a hard sell for things I don't need. For example, one option the company offers is a sump pump and ''french drain'' system which drains the water and pumps it ...More away from the house. Mr. told me that these systems are excellent for people who have a lot of water--like an inch or more in big sections of the basement. But for my problem, which is just a little dampness in the floor, it would probably be useless. We also discussed the possibility of a commercial-grade dehumidifier which the company sells and installs for around $2000. This humidifier would have twice the drying power of my current model from home depot, it would also filter dust and mold spores. I decided for now to keep my current system and try to run it more consistently. If I do decide to buy a more powerful humidifier, I will get it from pioneer.

I first hired them in 12/03 to correct a bad water leak in my basement. After tearing apart my home 3 more times, the problem is still awful. I cannot use my basement for anything, and now they say that I do not have a warranty. I have hired an attorney, and I am going to them. This has been an overall awful experience.
