Black mold is commonly referred to as 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.
Toxic Mold can cause a number of health issues or allergic reactions. Most times, depending on the how long the mold has been present, 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 flooding. There are several areas that water can enter your home, because of this we offer several different waterproofing systems to help keep the water under control. The main 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.
Regardless of the issue you are having we have waterproofing systems that will 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 control 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 products you need to keep your home dry.
Your foundation is most likely one of the most important structural components of your home. It not only supports 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. Other times, you will see that the doors will not open easily. You may also see a problem where the foundation walls have begun to lean inward. You may not think these problems are dangerous when you notice 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 problems stem from similar issues and our team is very good at noticing these problems. Our Team can offer a foundation repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently fix the foundation. If the problem is a sinking foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to level the foundation. 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 buckling, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide much neededsupport.
In the Tracys Landing area, there are many homes that were built with crawl space areas instead of basements. For years they 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, 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. 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 increase 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 seal them and control humidity. This is best 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. Moisture 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.
