Has anyone has their house waterproofed from the outside and then some kind of mold remediation inside. Our house is leaky and we really need to do something to protect everyone's airways and don't even know where to start.

There is some good information available at Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation.

This article that we ran in Allergic Living mag also has some useful advice. Though mostly preventative, it's helpful on things like sub floors, window wells, etc.
