Asbestos was commonly used in building materials from the 1940s through the 1970s. Some asbestos products such as floor tiles carry low risks because there is little chance of these products shattering with enough force to release asbestos fibers into the air. However, other building materials containing asbestos, such as pipe and boiler insulation, may carry health risks. We are licensed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for asbestos testing and are skilled at knowing how to collect samples and which tests are the proper ones for the material.
Indoor air quality in brand new homes may be compromised by volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which are released from framing materials, flooring, carpeting, and paint. These compounds, which include formaldehyde, can irritate the respiratory tract and aggravate asthma in some cases. We can advise you on how to ventilate your home to lower levels of VOCs, and we perform indoor air quality testing to determine the level of indoor air pollution in homes throughout our coverage area.
