Our areas of expertise include mold, asbestos, lead paint, radon and indoor air quality. Whether you are buying a home, doing remodeling or worried about your home’s effect on your family’s health, we offer a common sense approach to environmental hazards and inspections. Location of the home is not a factor; Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, Culver City, Palos Verdes and surrounding cities can have any or all of these hazards.
Home inspections and building inspections often uncover environmental hazards such as mold, poor indoor air quality, asbestos, and lead paint however they aren't equipped to advise on such matters. These are the type of issues a home buyer, contractor, or business owner needs to know about. Home inspectors are generalist, they will identify a problem or potential problem. Our environmental inspectors are specialists. We can provide a mold inspection, radon test, lead paint test, asbestos testing, and indoor air quality testing and all your environmental testing needs to determine the extent of the issue.
Moisture and mold damage needs to be evaluated. Is this a simple cleanup by a handyman, or does it require professional remediation? If it does need remediation, we can write the required remediation plan and do mold testing after completion to ensure the job has been completed. Underlying drainage, HVAC, and ventilation problems will be documented in our written report.
Home buyers often want to have lead paint testing, asbestos testing, radon testing, and EMF(Electro Magentic Fields) testing. Many home inspectors do not offer these services, but we provide Los Angeles radon testing, Santa Monica mold inspections, Beverly Hills lead paint testing, Culver City indoor air quality testing, Palos Verdes asbestos testing, these tests can be done in any city or in combination with one another.
Whether it is a major remodel or a small remodeling project, we offer asbestos and lead paint testing to comply with local city and Air Quality Management District (AQMD) regulations. Asbestos requires lab testing at an outside lab. Lead paint testing can be done on site by our envoronmental inspector with our non-invasive XRF (X-Ray Fluorescence) equipment.
Lead is sometimes discovered in a client’s blood by their physician. Our envoronmental inspector can perform a Lead Hazard Inspection to try to track down the sources of lead in the client’s home and office. After we rule out the most obvious potential sources of lead, we investigate other potential sources of lead (paint, dust, soil, water, utensils, serving dishes, jewelry, cosmetics, etc. ) in your home or work environment.
Before you buy, get the full envoronmental inspection picture. What about that junk in the crawl space or attic, is it harmful? Regular home inspectors are not trained to fully evaluate possible environmental hazards. We can help you get a clear picture of your new home’s environmental health. We quantify what it takes to fix problems we find, to help you make good decisions.
Do you want peace of mind about the air you are breathing? Did that old roof leak we fixed last year create a problem? Worried that your home may be making your family sick? Undetected moisture/ mold problems aren’t the only environmental problems to be on the lookout for. Our certified environmental inspector has a unique background as a home inspector, a licensed general contractor and an indoor air quality specialist. Our services are offered in Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, Culver City, Palos Verdes and surrounding cities.
You should have an asbestos test BEFORE you start remodeling. Maybe I shouldn’t have scraped that popcorn ceiling and repainted. You will not regret getting the proper testing done before you create a cloud of potentially harmful dust. It’s the right thing to do for your family’s health, as well as to comply with your local governmental rules.
If your doctor has found elevated lead levels in your blood, we can investigate. This is a new house, where did I get lead exposure? Our noninvasive XRF equipment can check your home as well as your household furnishings and personal products that might be the source of your lead exposure.
