Black 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 variety 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.
Your basement is an important area in your home regardless of whether 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 water and excess humidity. There are a variety of areas that water can enter your basement, because of this we offer a variety of different repair solutions and products to help keep the water under control. The primary place where we find basement leaking 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.
Whatever the issue you are having we have solutions that will transport and remove water from your basement. If you have leaky wall cracks, one of the first things 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 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 dry.
Your foundation is possibly one of the most important areas of your home. It not only supports the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have got foundation problems, they can show themselves as stair stepping cracks in bricks outside of your home and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation or along the basement walls. Other times, you will notice that the doors will not open easily. You may also notice a problem where the basement walls have begun to bow inward. You may not think these problems are dangerous when you see them, however, they are all indicators 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 similar issues and our team is very good at identifying these problems. We can offer a foundation repair solution designed for your particular problem to permanently repair the foundation. If the problem is a sagging foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to bring the home back to level. Depending on how bad the damage 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 bowing, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide neededsupport.
In the Hanover area, there are many homes that were built with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many 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, the opposite is what usually happens, having these vents allows water to get in during heavy rain. 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 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 humidity. This is done 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. 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.
