This naturally mineral fiber had been used in construction for many years before scientific studies proved it could case harm to people. Prolonged asbestos exposure can cause asbestosis, mesothelioma, and lung cancer. It can be found in insulation in homes built between 1930–1950, textured paint used on ceilings and walls, roofing shingles and sealants, vinyl flooring and adhesives, pipe coatings and tape, gaskets in coal and oil furnaces, sprayed-on ceiling materials used for acoustics, wire insulation or stovetop pads, and exhaust flues and older HVAC ducting in older properties. Any home made during in 1975 and later likely doesn’t have asbestos issues, but it’s always a good idea to be 100% sure. If you’re planning on doing any construction that could disturb the asbestos fibers, it’s especially important to call in the expert hazardous material removal experts to take care of it—H2 Environmental Consulting Services at (800) 524-3578.

Mold and Fungus

Improve indoor air quality for all residents with a thorough check for mold and fungus. It’s a very common problem is any building that has excess moisture, but it can be very bothersome for those who live there, especially those who have mold allergies, as well as children and elderly people. Some studies suggest that those who live in places where fungus is present are at an increased risk for developing respiratory problems like asthma. Our top-notch indoor air quality detection devices can even test the air in your wall cavities, so you can rest assured that if there are hazardous materials present, we will find and eliminate them.


All buildings constructed before 1978, some 64 million of them in the US, likely have lead in them. The most common source of lead is paint chips, soil, and dust. Now there are various federal and state laws that protect children from lead exposure, and H2 Environmental Consulting Services follows every safety precaution when removing lead from residences. Your health is important to us, and especially if there are young children living in the multi-family building, it’s important to get lead removed.

Soil Contaminants

If you have a community garden on your multi-family property, it’s important to have your soil tested for possible contamination by volatile organics, PNAs, priority pollutants, BETX, and metals such as lead. Especially if your building sits next to a factory or former-factory, having your soil tested will give you peace of mind so you can enjoy the fruits of your garden worry-free.
