School administrators and Local City Governments, Contact H2 Environmental ASAPWith the school year winding down, final essays are being written, textbooks are being stored for next year, and school administrators and local city governments are beginning to make preparations for next year’s students. Make sure your students aren’t being put at risk for a host of health problems as a result of environmental contaminants such as mold, fungus, lead, PCBs, and asbestos.

State of the Art Testing Techniques

At H2 Environmental Consulting Services, we use the most modern technology to determine if there’s any sign of mold, fungus, lead, PCBs, and asbestos in your school. We’re even able to test the air inside walls for contaminants, so you can rest assured that if there’s an issue, we will find it. Our testing methods are so fantastic that we teach other companies and organizations how to test for environmental contamination.

Don’t Put the Kids’ Health At Risk

Many schools utilize older buildings that may no longer be used for other purposes. This is great because it gives schools a classic, dependable feel that reassures kindergarteners and high schoolers alike when they walk through the doors. The only problem is that older buildings often contain hazardous materials. If there’s paint from before 1978, it likely is laced with lead, which can cause lead poisoning if ingested. Young kids are always touching everything and then putting their fingers in their mouths, so high levels of lead are pretty common. Mold and fungus could be problems in your school if you have high moisture levels and poor ventilation, which is especially common in basements, where flooding often occurs. Asbestos could become a major issue if your school is planning any renovations, as the toxic fibers enter the air when the material is disturbed. PCBs could be an issue if your light fixtures haven’t been updated in decades. If you’re not sure, it’s best to be on the safe side, so contact H2 Environmental Consulting Services at (800) 524-3578 to set up an initial consultation today.
