Build a Mancave for Father’s Day! But first, call H2 Environmental Consulting ServicesBut before you take out your hammer to start constructing the mancave of your Dad’s dreams, place a quick call to H2 Environmental Consulting Services. We’re Southern California’s decontamination experts. Many people have no idea what contaminants are lurking in their home, and it’s best to find out before beginning any construction or renovation projects in preparation for your big Father’s Day surprise.

Don’t worry, though!

We can schedule your appointment at your earliest convenient and using the latest tools, technology, and techniques, we’ll quickly analyze every molecule of your property – including its soil, air, physical structure, and water – and determine whether your property contains asbestos, lead, mold, fungus, or any other contaminant.

Why must I call H2 Environmental Consulting Services before beginning my renovations? You may be wondering.

Well, if you start hacking through the walls, pulling up carpet, or any other action that releases dust and other materials into the air, you could be unwittingly exposing yourself and any other inhabitants to harmful materials.

For instance, asbestos is still found in many homes throughout Southern California, even though it was outlawed in the late 1970s. We frequently find it in acoustic ceilings, insulation, pipe coverings, and more – it used to be used everywhere because of its fire-retardant and insulating properties. But then scientific studies concluded that exposure to asbestos was linked to the development of serious diseases such as mesothelioma and lung cancer. Materials that contain asbestos are alright to be around when they’re not disturbed, but if you begin renovating, those fibers could be disturbed and released into the air, then inhaled by anyone in the near vicinity. Protect yourself and your loved ones against asbestos exposure by calling H2 Environmental Consulting Services at (800) 524-3578 for assistance before beginning any renovations.

Another example is lead. Most if not all buildings used lead-based paint before the late 1970s and early 1980s, after which the government banned it because lead poisoning has debilitating effects, particularly on young children. Perhaps you’ve seen the news stories about Detroit’s lead poisoning problems and the disastrous results. Lead definitely isn’t something you want to mess with. Limiting exposure is key – particularly if there are curious young children in the home who might put lead-based paint chips in their mouths.

If we find any hazardous materials in your home, we’ll develop and implement a comprehensive plan to totally eradicate them from your home. As a fully licensed and insured decontamination company, you can trust your home to our capable hands.

Preclude the possibility of the release of any harmful materials in your home, and then make this a Father’s Day to really remember with the help of H2 Environmental Consulting Services. Call us at (800) 524-3578 for an appointment today.
