What Health Hazards Does Black Mold Cause?

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 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 flooding. There are a number of areas that water can enter the basement, because of this we offer a number of different waterproofing products to help keep the water under control. The most likely place where we find 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 collect, transport, and remove water from your basement. If you have leaky wall cracks, the first thing our experts will recommend is to have a wall crack repair product 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 drainage 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.

Foundation Repair

Your Homes foundation is most likely 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 got foundation issues, they can show themselves as stair stepping cracks in blocks and horizontal cracks that run the length of the basement walls. In addition to this, you will see that the doors or windows will not open easily. You may also see a problem where the foundation walls have begun to lean inward. 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 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 experts are very good at noticing these issues. Our Experts can offer a repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently repair the foundation. If the issue is a sloping foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to stop the sinking. Depending on the extent of the damage 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 notice 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 much neededsupport.

Crawl Space Repair

In the Crumpton area, there are a number homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years they were created with open vents to the outside. These vents were created to help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, the opposite is what usually happens, having these open 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. 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 benefit the overall air quality in your home.

Our team has been waterproofing crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the best way to seal them and control high humidity. This is best achieved using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a heavy duty line, sometimes accompanied by a sump pump 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 proven crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
