Black mold is potentially one of the most dangerous 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.
Black mold can cause a variety of allergic reactions and health problems. Most of the time, depending on the how long you were exposed, 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 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 and free from flooding. 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 most likely place where we find basement leaking 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 transport and remove water from your basement. If you have wall cracks, one of the first things our experts will recommend is to have a wall crack repair product 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 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 dr0 and safe.
The foundation of your home 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 foundation issues, they will normally show themselves as stair stepping cracks in blocks and horizontal cracks that run the length of the basement walls. Other times, you will notice that the doors will not open easily. You may also notice a problem where the foundation walls have begun to bow inward. You may not think these issues are dangerous when you observe 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.
Thankfully, many foundation problems stem from similar issues and our team is very good at identifying these issues. Our Team 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 stop the sinking. 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 notice 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 Harmans area, there are many homes that were built with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years crawl spaces were created with crawl space 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 crawl space 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 and mildew. 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 waterproofing crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the most efficient way to seal them and control high humidity. This is done using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a sealing 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 crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
