Toxic 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 host of health problems and allergic reactions. Most of the time, depending on the how long you were exposed, symptoms can include rashes, coughing, headaches, and fatigue. 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.
The foundation of your home 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 issues, they can 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 notice that the doors will not open easily. You may also notice a problem where the basement walls have begun to press inward or bow. You may not think these issues 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.
Luckily, many foundation problems stem from similar issues and our team is very good at identifying these issues. Our Team can offer a repair solution designed for your particular problem to permanently repair and stabilize the foundation. If the issue is a sagging foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to level the foundation. 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’ve noticed 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 neededsupport.
In the Wye Mills area, there are a number homes that were built with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many 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, the opposite is what usually 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. If you have a crawl space, 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.
American Eagle Professional Services, Inc. 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 done using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a heavy duty 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 crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
