Hosting a New Year’s Eve Party? Make Sure Your Home is Safe from Common Contaminants First

Many people don’t realize it, but there are plenty of contaminants that can be found in many homes throughout the US. If you’re planning on hosting a New Year’s Eve party, you may unwittingly expose your guests to harmful materials that could be lurking in your home. Make sure your home is safe for all your guests (especially the littlest ones!) by scheduling an environmental evaluation with H2 Environmental Consulting Services before the clock strikes 12 on New Year’s Eve.

Why you should be concerned about lead

Lead is a very common contaminant still found in millions of homes across the US. The US federal government banned the use of lead-based paint in 1978, but plenty of homes constructed before that date still contain it. The problem is that over time, lead based paint chips and dust fall onto the floor, where little ones play. Most kids put their hands in their mouth at some point, so the lead is ingested into the blood stream. Lead poisoning is a widespread problem throughout the US and you can do your part to prevent lead exposure by having your home tested for lead. We are your local lead testing and remediation experts – call us at (800) 524-3578 today.

Why you should be concerned about asbestos

Asbestos is a known carcinogen that has been found to be a contributing factor to the development of serious diseases like lung cancer and asbestosis. Asbestos fibers in your home aren’t a big deal as long as they aren’t disturbed, but if you’re planning a renovation project, it’s essential that you have your home checked for asbestos before beginning any work. If asbestos fibers are disturbed, they will be released into the air, where they can be inhaled and cause harm. Call H2 Environmental Consulting Services at (800) 524-3578 to have your home thoroughly checked for asbestos so you won’t have to worry about exposure going into 2018. We can also provide complete asbestos remediation services for your peace of mind.

Mold and fungus

These materials are a natural part of our world, but some varieties cause harm to human health, especially those who suffer from allergies. Make sure all your party guests will be comfortable and safe in your home by having it checked for mold and fungus particles. Using specialized equipment, we’ll analyze every molecule of your property to determine exactly where mold and fungus are present. If it is found, we’ll also develop a full remediation plan so you, your family, and your guests will always be able to breathe easy when H2 Environmental Consulting Services is finished.
