Toxic Mold can cause a host of health issues or allergic reactions. Most times, depending on the length of exposure, symptoms can include rashes, coughing, headaches, and fatigue.

Your basement is an important area in your home if 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. There are a number of areas that water can enter your basement, because of this we offer a number of different waterproofing products to help keep the water out of your home. The main place where we find basement leaking is where there are cracks in the foundation walls. These are usually in the mortar joints between blocks and cracks in your concrete wall. 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 waterproofing systems that will collect and remove water from your basement. If you have foundation cracks, one of the first things 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 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 products you need to keep your home dr0 and safe.
Your foundation is possibly one of the most important structural components of your home. Not only does it support the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have foundation issues, they will normally show themselves as stair stepping cracks in blocks and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation or along the basement walls. Sometimes, you will notice that the windows will not open easily. You may also notice a problem where the foundation walls have begun to press inward or bow. 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 one of our experts to determine if a repair needs to be installed.
Luckily, many foundation problems stem from similar issues and our experts are very good at identifying these issues. Our Experts can offer a repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently repair 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 the damage 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 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 Trappe area, there are a number homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For 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, the opposite is what usually happens, having these crawl space vents allows water to get in during rain and snow 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 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.
American Eagle Professional Services, Inc. has been providing crawl space encapsulation since we opened our doors, and we know the most efficient way to close them off and control mold. This is 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. Moisture 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.
