Black mold can cause a host of health problems and allergic reactions. Most of the time, depending on the how long you were exposed, 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 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 ways that water can enter the basement, because of this we offer a variety of different repair solutions to help keep the water out of your home. The most likely place where we find basement 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.
Regardless of the issue you are having we have solutions that will 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 custom 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 problems, 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 see that the doors will not open easily. You may also see a problem where the basement walls have begun to lean inward. You may not think these problems are dangerous when you observe them, however, they are all indicators 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 issues stem from similar issues and our experts are very good at noticing these problems. Our Team can offer a foundation repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently stabilize the foundation. If the problem is a sagging foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to level the foundation. Depending on how bad it is 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 bowing, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide much neededsupport.
In the Queenstown area, there are a number 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 intended help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, these vents don’t really work that way, having these crawl space 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 mold growth. 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 be better for the overall air quality in your home.
Our Experts has been waterproofing crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the most efficient way to close them off and control 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. Water in your crawl space can also cause saggign floors. We can install a patented crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
