 IS YOUR HOME OR OFFICE MAKING YOU OR YOUR CHILDREN SICK ? 

It seems that we hear a lot about environmental concerns these days. Much of it is simply the result of a greater awareness than in the past. Exposure to airborne allergens (Aeroallergens) and mold are one of the many trigger factors of asthma symptoms. Asthmatic persons may also experience symptoms of allergic rhinitis due to aeroallergen exposure in both children and adults. Sensitization to aeroallergens may result in both chronic (Perennial or Continual) and accute asthma (Asthma attack).Sources of areoallergens may thrive indoors and outdoors, allergens represent a residential or occupational hazard to sensitive persons.Allergen avoidance and elimination is the front line defense against asthma and other allergic diseases. We can assist in locating the problems with an inspection and sampling of the air.See our mold and allergy inspection page for more information.

There are a number of potential  environmental issues that we should be aware of.

Water quality is probably the most common concern and the one most often tested for. Typically, a basic water quality test will check pH, water hardness, the presence of fluoride, sodium, iron and manganese, plus bacteria such as E-coli. Additionally, water may be tested for the presence of lead or arsenic.

In homes built before 1978, lead based paint may be present. Generally, if the lead based paint is in good condition, not cracking or peeling, it is not a hazard. If the condition is hazardous, the paint will either need to be removed or sealed in such a manner as to eliminate the hazard.

Another common environmental concern with the home is radon. Radon is a radioactive gas that comes from the natural decay of uranium in the soil. Pretty much all homes have some radon present, tests can determine if the level present is higher than what is considered safe. If the level is too high, a radon reduction system will need to be installed.

(No wonder it was affecting me the most! I'm the one who does the laundry and thats where you found the source of the problem.) R.W. CORTLAND

In older homes built more than 30 years ago, asbestos was used in many types of insulation and other building materials. If the asbestos is releasing fibers into the air, it needs to be removed or repaired by a professional contractor specializing in asbestos cleanup. But, if the asbestos material is in good repair, and not releasing fibers, it poses no hazard and can be left alone.See our other pages for individual items of intrest.
