Wildwood Asbestos, Lead, and Mold Testing
Milan Choudhury and his family just relocated to the metro St. Louis area from Pennsylvania. They looked for an area with an abundance of outdoor activities for their active bunch, and an excellent school district was a must. The Choudhurys found a mid-century ranch in Wildwood, Missouri, a western suburb of St. Louis that provides a country setting feel despite its location less than 30 minutes from downtown. Wildwood extends over almost 70 square miles with 50 miles of trails, a renowned state park, and a variety of dining and entertainment options. While the family was sold on the Wildwood location, Milan was worried their new home might be hiding something behind its shag carpet and paneling. So, he hired St. John Environmental Consulting, providers of Wildwood Asbestos, Lead, and mold testing for his peace of mind.
As a homeowner, you want to make certain your home is safe for your family. An important way to alleviate any concern is hiring St. John Environmental Consulting to perform an environmental inspection for your residence. In essence, an environmental inspection is a thorough examination that assesses potential hazards in your home such as lead, asbestos, mold, and radon. Knowing what to expect during an environmental inspection will help you prepare your home and give you peace of mind knowing that your property is safe. Let’s take a look at what you should expect during an environmental inspection of your Wildwood home.
Before an expert St. John Environmental inspector arrives at your property, we will ask questions about any potential hazards in your home. These questions could include the age of your home, previous renovations, and any previous environmental tests done. Once all the necessary information has been gathered, we will schedule a time perform the environmental inspection.
The first step in an environmental inspection is a visual inspection of your home. Our professional inspectors examine every room and space in your Wildwood home to look for potential hazards. This includes inspection of areas such as pipes, insulation, and vents. Any visible signs of water leaks, mold, or other environmental hazards will be documented. During this process, it is important that our inspector has access to all areas of your home, so make sure all rooms and spaces are easily accessible.
Once the visual inspection is complete, we will take samples from different areas of your home to test for possible environmental hazards. These samples could be air, soil, dust, or water samples. This process is important in identifying any hazards that may not be visible during the visual inspection. The samples will be sent to a laboratory to be analyzed.
After the inspection and laboratory analysis are complete, St. John Environmental Consulting provides our clients a comprehensive and easy to understand report on the findings. If any environmental hazards are found, the report will include recommendations on what to do to rectify the problem. Depending on the type and severity of the hazard, we may recommend that you take immediate action or suggest ongoing monitoring.
If any environmental hazards are found during the inspection, we recommend scheduling a follow-up inspection to ensure that the hazards have been adequately addressed. This follow-up inspection will confirm if the environmental hazards have been corrected and are no longer a threat to the health and safety of your household.
For homeowners in Wildwood and all over the St. Louis region, getting an environmental inspection done for your home is an essential step in ensuring that your property is safe for everyone who lives there. By knowing what to expect during this process, you get the time to make your home accessible to our inspector and prepare questions for our knowledgeable staff.
