Toxic Mold is commonly referred to as potentially one of the most toxic molds 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.
Toxic Mold can cause a host of health problems and allergic reactions. Most of the time, depending on the how long the mold has been present, symptoms can include headaches, fatigue, fever, irritation to the nose mouth and throat, and sneezing. 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 necessary that you keep the area free of water and excess humidity. There are several areas that water can enter your basement, because of this we offer several different waterproofing systems 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 or at mortar joints between blocks. It can also occur with floor cracks and at the cove joint where the foundation walls and floor meet.
Regardless of the issue you are having we have products that will remove water from your basement. If you have foundation cracks, one of the solutions our experts will recommend is to have a wall crack repair solution installed to control the crack growth and water leak. If water is entering 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 solutions you need to keep your home safe.
Your Homes foundation is possibly one of the most important support structures of your home. Not only does it support the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have foundation issues, 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 bow inward. You may not think these issues are dangerous when you notice them, however, they are all indicative 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.
Luckily, many foundation issues stem from similar issues and our team is very good at identifying these issues. Our Experts can offer a repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently stabilize the foundation. If the problem is a sloping foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to stop the sinking. Depending on how bad it is and where it is 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 much neededsupport.
In the Claiborne area, there are a number homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years they 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 rain and snow storms. This water tends to stay in your crawl space resulting in the humidity level staying too high causing the growth of mold. If you have a crawl space, 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 increase the overall air quality in your home.
American Eagle Professional Services, Inc. has been encapsulating crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the best way to seal them and control high humidity. This is 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 crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
