You should react quickly to the first signs of iron ochre by calling upon a specialist to prevent more significant damage.

Current research maintains that the most effective way to combat water infiltration caused by iron ochre is to install weeping tile.
Weeping tile is and elastomeric membrane installed at the base of a home’s foundation, used to evacuate water as far away as possible from the building.
Depending on the size of the home, you should anticipate about 2-5 days of work to have weeping tile installed around it.
Don’t wait until the problem gets worse and iron ochre invades your pipes, as you would be required to have your home completely decontaminated and this would prove to be very expensive. In more advanced cases of iron ochre, when it has already attacked the home’s foundation, it even becomes necessary to raise the home off the foundation to examine the building’s structure. Can you imagine how much that would cost? If you have any doubt, call a specialist like Monsieur Fissure immediately to perform a diagnostic and quickly implement a solution.
