We can undertake a number of environmental tests. Here are a few of the services we provide.
Mold, which grows in damp places, can progressively damage materials and furnishings in your home. It can also lead to health problems such as allergies, asthma, hypersensitivity, pneumonitis, and others. Our inspectors will collect air samples from inside and outside your home or commercial building together with swab samples to identify mold. These samples will be analyzed to give you a final report.
Radon is one of the most dangerous indoor air pollutants. Since radon is an invisible, odorless gas, it is often neglected. But it is radioactive and this makes it a serious health hazard. Many cases of lung cancer can be attributed to breathing in radon. We can conduct short-term and long-term tests to measure radon levels in your home or at your place of business.
Asbestos is a fibrous silicate mineral. Though it is quite useful, airborne asbestos dust and fibers can cause serious illnesses such as cancer, asbestosis, and more over a long period of time. We can do an asbestos inspection, analyzing the air quality in your home or at your business, collecting swab samples from suspected areas, and testing your home for asbestos contamination.
If you are buying a new house or commercial building, we recommend that you get a meth inspection. Methamphetamine is one of the most dangerous drugs and it is highly addictive. Your home or business can be contaminated by methamphetamine if someone produced it inside or even used it. Contamination can lead to allergies, nose bleeds, skin irritation, and other problems. We can collect swab samples from your home or business, which will later be analyzed in a laboratory to find out if your home or business is contaminated with methamphetamine.
According to the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, more than 1 million children each year suffer from lead poisoning. If your home or commercial building was built prior to 1978, there is a high chance that the paint that was used to coat your building contained lead. Lead poisoning can cause a number of health issues. We use state-of-the-art equipment to inspect our clients’ homes for lead. If you own a private school, daycare, medical facility serving children or another business children frequent, you should also get lead testing. Lead testing not only protects children’s health, it helps safeguard you against lawsuits.
