How to Tell If an Environmental Consulting Company Knows What it’s doingMany, perhaps even most, people haven’t ever dealt with an environmental consulting company before. So naturally, people don’t really know what to expect and how to know if they’re receiving good service. When you call in a consulting company to evaluate your property, you want to be sure that you’re not only getting your money’s worth, but make sure your health won’t be put in jeopardy in the future because of shoddy service.

Follow All Regulations

The #1 most important priority for environmental consulting company is to be sure they follow all state and federal regulations when properly identifying hazardous substances in residential and commercial properties, as well as during the removal of these substances. Regulations have been put into place to prevent further environmental contamination and keep people protected from toxic materials, so it’s essential that they’re meticulously followed. At H2 Environmental, we not only follow all environmental regulations, we teach other entities how to properly follow them. A well-known piece of wisdom says that the best way to learn something is to start teaching it to others, and at H2 Environmental we do that every day.

Communicate Effectively

A primary indicator of an organized, responsible company is found simply in the way the employees, contractors, and management communicate with each other and with clients. If you’re always greeted with a smile and a firm handshake, and you’re always kept abreast of what’s going on on your property, that’s a very good sign that the company is top-notch. Communication is the key to success during any professional interaction—especially one that involves hazardous waste removal on your property. You can count on everyone at H2 Environmental to treat you and everyone else they interact with to be respectful, friendly, and courteous at all times. We’re not robots performing tasks—we’re people! It’s so nice to be able to work with such a friendly, professional team every day.

Educate without Belittling

Another facet of proper communication is being able to impart information to clients in a way that elucidates meaning without making the listener feel dumb or less educated. It can be a challenge to explain something complicated in a way that the person doesn’t feel like they’re being talked down to. That’s one advantage of H2 Environmental—we’ve talked to and taught clients from all walks of life, so we have the experience and expertise to impart information to you in a way that makes you feel appreciated and respected.
