Founded in 1984 Harmony Real Estate was first run from a small home office.

 For most families, their home is their single largest investment. Many structural defects contribute to water problems in the home. Water intrusion can lead to microbial growth that can cause costly damage to your most valuable possession.


Is your home safe from water intrusion and mold growth? Please consider the following issues:


Roof Leaks

Damaged, worn, or improperly installed roofing materials can lead to roof leaks and water intrusion in the structure. Moisture breeds mold.


Improper Grading

One of the best ways for water to enter the home is via improper exterior grading. When the land surrounding a structure slopes toward the outside walls, water from rain and landscape irrigation can penetrate the home and promote mold growth.


Rising Dampness from Foundation

Dampness from the foundation can be caused by a number of factors including poor crawlspace ventilation, support beams touching soil, and foundation cracks. Dampness leads to mold.


Plumbing Leaks

Many plumbing leaks are noticeable and many are not. Undetected leaks in a home, no matter how minor, can lead to massive moisture intrusion. Many times these leaks will not be noticed by the homeowner until major water damage has occurred. Hidden water intrusion will lead to a mold problem.


Misaligned Sprinklers

Are your sprinklers hitting the side of your home or causing excessive moisture? This can lead to mold problems in your home.


Poor Caulking in Shower and/or Tub

Showers and tubs must be well sealed to prevent moisture intrusion. Excessive moisture in the surrounding building materials can lead to fungal growth in your bathroom.


Suspect Odor

Molds often emit musty or other strange and unpleasant odors. If you have odors of this nature in your home, you might have a mold problem.


Plants/Trees Touching Exterior of Structure

Plants and trees that come in contact with your home can trap moisture against your home and allow for moisture intrusion into the structure. This foliage can also block out sunlight that assists in drying these exterior walls. Wet walls can breed mold.
