    Asbestos in building materials has been a major concern among schools, insurance carriers, residential property owners, building owners, property managers, tenants and employees for the last two decades. Exposure to this seemingly harmless yet often invisible airborne material can pose serious health issues and liability risks without warning.

    Solving The Asbestos Problem

    Certified has a very qualified staff of certified technicians whose task is to perform excellent field work from start to finish. Every phase of an asbestos job that we do is handled meticulously without overlooking fine details that may cause problems in the future. We begin a job by evaluating all the details required to accomplish the job in the most cost efficient and timely manner. Our certified technicians conduct a comprehensive inspection of the building or area of concern prior to sampling suspect asbestos materials.

    After samples have been collected, they are delivered to the laboratory for testing. Reports are generated based on analytical results, reviewed by the field services manager and given to the customer. The reports include: recommendations in proper handling of any asbestos containing materials and project design and specifications for required abatement, demolition and renovation plans. Certified’s involvement in the abatement phase includes air monitoring and clearance testing.

  • Lead Issues

    Elemental lead came to the national forefront of health hazards in the 1960s as a result of an increasing number of incidents of coma, convulsions, and severe poisonings reported in hospitals throughout the country. Further study by the EPA and the US Department of Housing and Urban Development revealed that the major source of these symptoms was ingestion of lead-based paint, which was used in more than 75 percent of the homes built prior to 1980. Over four decades later, lead exposure has been deemed to be a suspected carcinogen, also causing damage to the brain, liver, kidneys, reproductive and nervous systems, premature birth, and low birth weight. Although high-risk employees are of a concern, according to the EPA, children are the highest risk group due to their size suffering symptoms such as learning disabilities, impaired motor skills, hyperactivity and slowed growth. Lead in homes, schools, or workplace environments can cause fatal consequences.

    The Lead Solution

    Certified has the capability and skilled staff of California lead-based paint certified personnel to address your immediate needs when lead exposure is a critical issue of concern ensuring that we are in compliance with OSHA worker protection guidelines. Our staff works as a team in conducting a lead based paint survey and provides comprehensive abatement project design & specifications needed to address the problem. Whether the recommended solution is abatement or encapsulation, our staff will monitor work performed by the contractor.

  • Mold and its Dangers

    Fungus and mold are commonly found in homes or buildings that have sustained water intrusion due to flooding, broken pipes, roof leaks, sewage backups, condensation, humidity, etc. High moisture levels trapped in certain building materials promote ideal conditions for mold growth. Mold spores are found everywhere: in soil, plants and airborne dust and are introduced by common air space along with flood waters. They thrive on moist paper products, drywall, wall paper, ceiling tiles, carpets, coverings on insulated pipes, insulation material on wood, and on organic debris.

    Untreated water-damaged material allows mold to proliferate. Exposure to mold by building occupants can potentially cause a myriad of health problems due to mycotoxins released by the spores as well as by other fungal fragments. The following are some symptoms that may be caused by mold exposure: chronic coughing, fatigue, chest congestion and allergies. Some people experience hypersensitivity pneumonitis, a condition similar to viral infection with symptoms such as chills, fever, weakness, muscle pains, cough, and shortness of breath.

    Mold Solutions & Answers

    Certified Environmental provides effective and appropriate solutions to mold problems that may arise in your homes or buildings. We have the expertise to conduct thorough and comprehensive mold investigations using state-of-the art techniques and industry accepted procedures. Preliminary investigations begin by conducting an interview with the client to gather background information on the areas of concern. A thorough visual inspection is then made to determine the extent of mold growth and diagnostics are performed to determine the temperature and relative humidity or moisture in the air.

    Air samples are collected from outside and inside the building when mold is visible and wall checks samples are taken when mold is not visible but moisture levels are high. Samples are analyzed in the laboratory and a report is generated based on analytical results and visual inspection results. The report may include recommendation for thorough cleaning or remediation.Certified also conducts post remediation sampling to ensure that the remediation scope of work has been accomplished.
