Thinking of Purchasing or Renting a New Home in 2015? Start with H2 EnvironmentalMoving to a new home is a great way to ring in the new year. What better way to get a fresh start for 2015 than switching up your surroundings? Whether you’re buying or renting a new home, it’s always a good idea to schedule a consultation with H2 Environmental. We’ll thoroughly evaluate any residential or commercial property to ensure that your health won’t be put at risk by living there. Especially since many of us spend the majority of our time indoors, it’s incredibly important to make sure our homes are safe and sound.

We’ll check for asbestos, which is a heat-resistant material that was often used as an insulating material before people realized that exposure to asbestos can cause asbestosis, mesothelioma, lung cancer, and other lung problems. See for more information on asbestos exposure risks.

We also check for mold and fungus, which are very commonly found in homes when there is an excess of moisture, often a result of plumbing or other leaks. Those who have allergies are especially sensitive to these harmful substances, and when they are removed, people often feel near-immediate relief. General indoor air quality is also checked to ensure no harmful substances are present in the air you breathe everyday.

Lead is found in many older homes because it used to be used in common household paint. It’s extremely dangerous when small children are present in the home because their curiosity prompts them to put anything and everything in their mouth, including lead paint, which causes lead poisoning. If there will be children in your home, even if it’s just for a visit, don’t put their health at risk—just call H2 Environmental so you can let them play without worrying.

While the environmental dangers in your home are important, the ones outside it can affect your and your loved ones’ health, too. H2 Environmental can also test your soil for volatile organics, PNAs, priority pollutants, BETX, and metals such as lead.
