Restore provides complete environmental testing for mold, asbestos, and lead. When these environmental contaminants are present in a property, additional safety measures must be followed to protect the health of those who come into contact with contaminated materials. Additionally, there are federal and state rules that apply to the proper abatement of asbestos and lead that must be followed.
Whether your property has been damaged and is in need of repair, if you are planning to remodel the property, or if you suspect mold growth, Restore can complete environmental testing to determine if mold, asbestos, or lead contaminants are present in the property.
Mold growth can occur in any property where there is increased humidity or a moisture source such as a leaking roof or pipe, and organic material. Mold commonly grows on walls, ceilings, and floors, and can also be hidden on joists, framing materials, insulation, and other building materials. Mold spores travel easily through the air, and can be detected by air testing and confirmed by a visual inspection.
Asbestos was commonly used in a number of building materials through the 1970s including insulation and flooring and roofing materials. Asbestos fibers, when disturbed, can become airborne and enter the respiratory system, posing a significant health risk to those who are exposed. If you suspect asbestos in your property and it has been damaged, or you have plans to remove the material, it should first be tested to confirm whether asbestos is present so the proper procedures can be followed for abatement or removal.
Lead poses a significant health risk, and is most commonly a concern in homes or properties that contain lead paint. When your property has been damaged or you are planning a remodel, lead paint dust can be inhaled or ingested. At Restore, we can test your property to determine if lead is present to ensure the proper procedures are followed for cleanup, abatement, or removal of lead.
