What Is Black Mold

Black mold is potentially the most dangerous and toxic mold 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.

What Health Hazards Does Black Mold Cause?

Toxic Mold can cause a variety of allergic reactions and health problems. In most cases, 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.

Basement Waterproofing

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 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 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.

Regardless of the issue you are having we have waterproofing systems 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 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 systems you need to keep your home dry.

Structural Foundation Repair

The foundation of your home 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 issues, normally they will show themselves as stair stepping cracks in bricks outside of your home and horizontal cracks that run the length of the basement walls. Other times, 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 bow inward. You may not think these issues are dangerous when you see 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.

Luckily, many foundation issues 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 and stabilize the foundation. If the issue is a sinking foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to bring the home back to level. 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.

Professional Crawl Space Solutions

In the Riva area, there are homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For years they 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 storms. This water tends to stay in your crawl space resulting in the humidity level staying too high causing the growth of mold and mildew. With homes that have crawl spaces, 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 increase 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 seal them and control high humidity. This is achieved using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a waterproof 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.
