Asbestos containing materials were commonly used in buildings prior to 1980. Asbestos can be found in acoustical ceiling texture, drywall, joint compound, flooring adhesives, vinyl flooring, vinyl asbestos tiles, insulation, heating duct insulation, and other materials. Building components that contain asbestos and are damaged represent a health concern for the occupants. Asbestos containing materials that are to be disturbed during renovation and repair will create hazardous conditions for the occupants and workers unless they are identified prior to the start of work and handled according to federal and state regulations. Envirovue’s services can identify asbestos containing materials and report on their condition allowing your work safely and remain in compliance with all state and federal regulations.

Lead based paint is common in resdidential buildings that were constructed prior to 1978. The rule of thumb is that for every decade older the building the more lead based paint will be present. Lead based paint can be hazardous especially for smaller children who have an increased ability to absorb the metal. Lead paint in buildings which is disturbed and not contained using proper engineering controls can create lead paint hazards. Envirovue’s consulting service can detect lead based paint hazards using a thorough inspection protocol and testing service. Our service can be scaled to offer a full building survey or a single room evaluation whichever will meet your specific requirements for testing.
