Black mold is 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 health problems and allergic reactions. Most of the time, depending on the how long the mold has been present, symptoms can include chronic fatigue or headaches, fever, irritation to the eyes, mucous membranes of the mouth, nose, and throat, sneezing, rashes, and chronic coughing. 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 important that you keep the area dry and free from flooding. There are several ways that water can enter your home, because of this we offer several different waterproofing 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 collect and expel water from your basement. If you have wall cracks, the first thing our experts will recommend is to have a wall crack repair solution installed to stop 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 solutions you need to keep your home dr0 and safe.
The foundation of your home 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, normally they will 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 foundation walls have begun to lean 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.
Luckily, many foundation issues stem from common issues and our team is very good at identifying these issues. Our Experts can offer a foundation repair solution designed for your particular problem to permanently repair and stabilize the foundation. If the issue is a sagging foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to bring the home back to level. 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 neededsupport.
In the Mcdaniel area, there are many homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years crawl spaces were created with open vents to the outside. These vents were intended help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, this is not what really 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. With homes that have crawl spaces, 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 Experts has been encapsulating crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the best way to close them off and control high humidity. This is best achieved using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a waterproof 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 proven crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
