Toxic Mold is commonly referred to as potentially the most dangerous and toxic mold that exists. However, by being able to identify black mold and understand how to test for and remove it, we can help to keep your home free of toxic black mold.
Black mold can cause a variety of health issues or allergic reactions. Most of the time, depending on the how long the mold has been present, symptoms can include rashes, coughing, headaches, and fatigue. In cases where you have had exposure over a long period of time symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and bleeding in the lungs and nose may occur.
Your basement is an important area in your home whether or not you are using it for storage or have it finished as a living space for your family. This means it is imperative that you keep the area free of flooding. There are a number of areas that water can enter your basement, because of this we offer a number of different repair solutions to help keep the water out of your basement. The primary place where we find basement water leaks is where there are cracks in the foundation walls. These are usually in the concrete walls or mortar joints. It can also occur with floor cracks and at the cove joint where the foundation walls and floor meet.
Whatever the issue you are having we have waterproofing systems that will remove water from your basement. If you have foundation cracks, the first thing our experts will recommend is to have a wall crack repair solution installed to control the crack growth and water leak. If water is coming in at the cove joint or other areas we can install a specialized waterproofing system to help remove the water. In some more extreme cases, we may recommend installing a sump pump system to help with the removal of water. Our experts have the basement waterproofing systems you need to keep your home safe.
Your foundation is most likely one of the most important structural components of your home. It not only supports the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have foundation issues, normally they will show themselves as stair stepping cracks in blocks and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation walls. In addition to this, you will notice that the doors will not open easily. You may also notice a problem where the basement walls have begun to press inward or bow. You may not think these issues are dangerous when you see them, however, they are all indicative of a sinking or settling foundation that should be checked out by one of our experts to determine if a repair needs to be installed.
Luckily, many foundation problems stem from common issues and our team is very good at identifying these issues. Our Experts can offer a foundation repair solution designed for your particular problem to permanently repair the foundation. If the problem is a sinking foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to bring the home back to level. Depending on how bad it is and the location of the damage we can use either helical piers or push piers. Both are very strong and can stabilize your foundation. If you’ve noticed bowed basement walls, depending on how much the wall is buckling, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide neededsupport.
In the Centreville area, there are many homes that were built with crawl space areas instead of basements. For years crawl spaces were created with vents to the outside. These vents were created to help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, this is not what really happens, having these vents allows water to get in during storms. This water tends to stay in your crawl space resulting in the humidity level staying too high causing mold growth. If you have a crawl space, up to half of the air in your home enters through the crawl space, so having the space protected from the outside and controlling excess humidity will be better for the overall air quality in your home.
American Eagle Professional Services, Inc. has been providing crawl space encapsulation since we opened our doors, and we know the most efficient way to close them off and control humidity. This is best achieved using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a heavy duty line, sometimes accompanied by other waterproofing systems to keep water out of your crawl space. Encapsulation will stop bugs and animals from getting into your crawl space as well allowing you to use it for storage. Moisture in your crawl space can also cause saggign floors. We can install a proven crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
