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.
Toxic Mold can cause a host of health problems and allergic reactions. In most cases, depending on the how long you were exposed, 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 necessary that you keep the area dry. There are a number of ways that water can enter your basement, because of this we offer a number of different repair products to help keep the water out of your basement. 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 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 collect, transport, and remove water from your basement. If you have wall cracks, one of the solutions 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 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 dry.
Your foundation is most likely one of the most important areas of your home. Not only does it support the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have foundation problems, normally they will show themselves as stair stepping cracks in block foundations and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation or along the basement walls. In addition to this, you will see that the windows will not open easily. You may also see 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 indicative 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.
Often Times, many foundation issues stem from similar issues and our team is very good at identifying these problems. Our Team can offer a repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently repair and stabilize 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 have got 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.
In the Tilghman area, there are many homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years they were created with crawl space vents to the outside. These vents were created to 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. 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 close them off 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. Water in your crawl space can also cause saggign floors. We can install a tested crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
