While most drycleaning professionals and commercial business owners are eager to move forward with improved practices and correct any damage caused in the past, the process of environmental cleanups and remediation can be overwhelming and costly.
Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) April 16, 2015
Every two years, the dry cleaning and textile industries gather at the world’s largest exhibition, The Clean Show, to learn about innovations in the industry, including their role as environmental stewards. EnviroForensics, the country’s leading environmental engineering and consulting firm addressing the needs of drycleaners, will greet the anticipated 10,000+ attendees, while providing valuable information on proactive measures and strategies for environmental cleanups.
Stephen R. Henshaw, PG, EnviroForensic’s CEO and President, will be in attendance to help drycleaning professionals navigate risk exposure, environmental remediation processes, and ways to keep a business running while cleanups are taking place, both financially and operationally.
Henshaw comments, “The Clean Show presents an amazing opportunity for the drycleaning industry to connect with environmental leaders and vice versa. There is a great need for these relationships to develop as we move into more stringent regulations imposed on the drycleaning industry. We have the resources to help and we certainly appreciate the exposure during this event.”
Dry cleaners face an immense amount of scrutiny in the public eye based on a history of utilizing chlorinated solvents including perchloroethylene (PERC) and trichloroethylene (TCE). Within the last few years, the federal and state governments have mandated more intensive regulations that require the drycleaning industry to remediate perc contamination or face large penalties. While most drycleaning professionals and commercial business owners are eager to move forward with improved practices and correct any damage caused in the past, the process of environmental cleanups and remediation can be overwhelming and costly. Many are caught between navigating the expensive fines for neglecting to cleanup versus the costs involved in environmental remediation. These can cost upwards of $500,000 depending on the perc contamination.
EnviroForensics presents a variety of solutions for smart, thorough remediation and will ensure that this information meets the masses at the event. The firm will introduce a number of options for drycleaners to consider as they implement any necessary vapor intrusion and soil contamination remediation. In addition, EnviroForesics’ field experts will address funds available through the government and old insurance policies.
Henshaw adds, “We’re here to ease the pain. We understand the complex challenges facing the drycleaning industry; between reputation management, best practices for the future, and the costs of cleanup, they are certainly in need of the support we have to offer. We’re committed to serving business owners and the Clean show presents a wonderful opportunity to introduce ourselves.”
