Your home or business is a haven, but it may be compromised by dangerous materials. We provide services in Arlington Heights to inspect and remove contaminants from your property.

Asbestos Testing and Removal

Asbestos is the name used to refer to a number of silicates that have been used as a form of insulation in homes and businesses for many decades. In the early 20th Century, people began to understand that breathing in asbestos fibers can cause permanent damage to the lungs. As a result, Arlington Heights residents who have homes with asbestos must take extra care when removing that insulation. You need a company that is qualified in hazardous material removal to ensure that the asbestos will no longer pose a threat.

Lead Testing and Removal

Like asbestos, lead is a former component common in the construction of many houses, from plumbing to paint. Lead can flake off and be ingested by humans. It can lead to toxic long-term health effects for people, especially for infants, young children and fetuses. Removing lead from Arlington Heights homes and businesses requires a great deal of care to ensure it is fully eliminated.

Mold Removal

Any humid environment can produce mold, and mold can be extremely difficult to eradicate. Mold is a fungus that grows wherever it is given a warm, damp place. You may not know you have mold, but suffer from the common effects, such as allergies, asthma or frequent eye irritation. Reducing the humidity in your home is crucial to inhibiting the growth of mold, but you may need mold testing and removal to eliminate a serious mold infestation. Arlington Heights homeowners should pay attention to these concerns to protect their families and their home values.

Hazardous Material Removal

Knowing how to dispose of possibly hazardous materials, such as paint, chemical pollutants or technological equipment, may be beyond the skill of the average Arlington Heights resident. There are laws restricting the kinds of things you can safely throw away. To avoid releasing contaminants in the air or water, contact us today for hazardous material removal.
