West Lafayette, IN (PRWEB) March 14, 2014
In January, a mold problem was discovered at West Lafayette City Hall. And according to a report from jconline.com, it already caused a spending of $40,000 just for the remediation survey of the building. In connection with it, Florida mold inspection company AGC Environmental advised the implementation of early air quality testing to all property managers and owners to prevent such a huge mold expense.
The report, which was published on March 13, 2014, related that the growth of the fungus in the building was caused by the rupture of pipes twice in January. And because of it, it stated that employees were evacuated in February.
It was in the basement of the city hall where the mold problem was discovered, relayed the report. However, in order to determine the extent of it and a better course of action could be made for the building, it was decided that an environmental remediation survey would be implemented, it shared.
The survey, said the report, would also assess the asbestos in the building. And the money for it, it added, would be taken from Sagamore Tax Increment Finance funds as approved by the Redevelopment Commission.
Below is a part of the said news.
"The mold problem at West Lafayette City Hall is now digging into taxpayers’ pockets."
"The Redevelopment Commission approved spending up to $40,000 from Sagamore Tax Increment Finance funds to pay for an environmental remediation survey. The findings will point officials in the most practical direction about what to do with the building. Either way — restore it or raze it — taxpayers will be on the hook."
Like any problem, mold effects could worsen over time. Considering that, AGC Environmental said that any mold case must be detected early. That way, the remediation could also be implemented early, it stated.
However, the company said that the detection of mold must be done not just by anyone. To ensure that the process is safe, it asserted that the person doing it must be a professional in the field. And with its people being certified experts, it assured everyone that its Florida air quality testing, Florida mold inspection and even Florida asbestos testing are all effective and safe.
AGC Environmental cited that its services follow the federal guidelines. Moreover, it stated that its consultants provide detailed reports of the problem. Those reports, it said, could be used in various court purposes such as insurance claims.
Given those advantages, the company believes that its environmental health services are truly the best. But to know more about them, it invites the public to pay its website a visit at agcenvironmental.com.
