You expect your business or home in Winnetka to be a haven of safety, but you may not be able to verify it on your own. We provide the kinds of environmental testing and remediation that give you that extra assurance.
Hazardous Material Removal
There are times when you suspect something is wrong, but you are not sure what it might be. Whether you have just purchased a new home or are adding a new building on your business property, you need to have the knowledge that the space will be safe for living or working. A comprehensive approach to testing and remediation may be ideal, when you do not have a great deal of information about the property. Our services in hazardous material removal range from transport and disposal of paint or other solvents, to soil testing and environmental assessment.
Asbestos Testing and Removal
Asbestos is an excellent example of a hazard that could be lurking inside an older Winnetka home. Once used in insulation for its ability to resist fire, asbestos can cause several health problems. Asbestos removal is a tricky task, since upsetting the fibers makes them so much easier to ingest. If your home had asbestos but it was not properly removed, you may require asbestos testing to determine if there are still fibers present. Asbestos removal using the right protocols can allow you to breathe safely.
You might not know that your Winnetka home has mold without comprehensive mold testing. Mold thrives in a climate that is humid or regularly damp. Without regular ventilation, mold could easily develop in areas of your home like the kitchen or bathrooms. You may suspect a mold problem if you or members of your family suffer from headaches, allergies, asthma or other health problems. Mold is complicated to remove and can be a persistent problem, since mold spores can move through the air. Mold remediation is a necessity to conquer a mold problem.
Lead Testing and Removal
You may think that your home or business is free of lead, but are you sure? Lead was a common component of plumbing and household paint for decades, until experts realized the health risks lead consumption poses for infants, children, pregnant women and other vulnerable members of the population. Even if your home had lead removed, it might still be in the soil on the property. Lead testing will help to determine if your property contains too much lead.
