Your Schaumburg home is important for every aspect of your life, and you need to know that it provides adequate protection. We offer environmental testing and removal services to Schaumburg residents, so that you can rest assured that your home or business is safe from environmental contaminants.
Lead Testing and Removal
Despite the fact that lead has not been used in housing for several decades, older homes still have the possibility of lead in the plumbing or in paint. Lead exposure can lead to a number of health problems over time, especially for pregnant women, infants and children. It may be difficult to tell if lead paint was properly removed or simply covered over with a different kind of paint. As such, you may need testing before it can be removed from the building.
Mold is a common problem in any room of a building that sustains a higher degree of humidity, especially kitchens and bathrooms. Even if you cannot see mold growing, it may be thriving behind the walls or under the floor, in places beyond your sight. Mold can travel in the air and could create long-term breathing problems for people who spend a lot of time in the space. Proper ventilation helps to prevent mold from developing, but mold removal is a necessary service for Schaumburg homes with existing mold problems.
Asbestos Testing and Removal
Like lead, asbestos was a common component of construction that may still be present in older buildings. It was typically used in insulation for its flame-retardant qualities. You may have been living in a home with asbestos without significant health problems. Disturbing the asbestos fibers as it is removed is what triggers a lot of health concerns, when the fibers are inhaled. Schaumburg residents must have asbestos properly removed to negate the environmental hazard.
Long after contaminated materials have been removed from the home, traces of them may linger on the property. You may have had asbestos or lead eliminated from the structure, but many years of running water, rain and snow could mean that some of the lead is still on the property. If the toxins were not property removed from your Schaumburg home in the first place, they could contaminate the soil in your garden and affect your children as they play on the grass. When you are unsure of what may be laying underneath your lawn, you need proper soil testing to know if you are safe.
When your home or office needs environmental testing, you want to be sure that the company providing the service can achieve your goals completely and safely. To learn more about hazardous material removal for your Schaumburg property, contact Axis Response Group to schedule a consultation.
