What Is Black Mold

Toxic Black 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.

What Health Hazards Does Black Mold Cause?

Toxic Mold can cause a host of allergic reactions and health problems. Most times, depending on the length of exposure, 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.

Basement Waterproofing

Your basement is an important area in your home if 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 dry. There are a variety of ways that water can enter the basement, because of this we offer a variety of different repair solutions to help keep the water out of your home. 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 solutions that will remove water from your basement. If you have wall cracks, one of the solutions our experts will recommend is to have a wall crack repair solution installed to stop the crack growth and water leak. If water is coming in at the cove joint or other areas we can install a custom 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 products you need to keep your home dr0 and safe.

Professional Foundation Repair

Your Homes foundation is most likely one of the most important structural components of your home. Not only does it support the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have got foundation problems, they will normally show themselves as stair stepping cracks in block foundations and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation walls. Sometimes, you will notice that the doors or windows 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 problems are dangerous when you observe them, however, they are all indicators of a sinking or settling foundation that should be checked out by our team at American Eagle Professional Services, Inc. to determine if a repair needs to be installed.

Thankfully, many foundation problems stem from common issues and our team is very good at noticing these problems. We can offer a repair solution designed for your particular problem to permanently stabilize the foundation. If the problem is a sagging foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to level the foundation. Depending on how bad the damage 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 have got bowed basement walls, depending on how much the wall is leaning, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide neededsupport.

Crawl Space Repair

In the Churchton area, there are a number homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For years they were created with vents to the outside. These vents were designed 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 the growth of mold and mildew. With homes that have crawl spaces, up to half of the air entering 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.

Our team has been encapsulating crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the most efficient way to seal them and control high humidity. This is achieved using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a sealing 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. Water in your crawl space can also cause saggign floors. We can install a patented crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
