Environmental Service Professionals, Inc. Creates National Home Environmental Inspection Company: ''Healthy Home Assurance'' Program Aims to Prevent Mold-Related Health Problems

Share Article

Commenting on the upcoming October, 2007 American Journal of Public Health article "Dampness and Mold in the Home and Depression: An Examination of Mold-Related Illness and Perceived Control of One's Home as Possible Depression Pathways" by Edmond D. Shenassa, ScD, et. al., Edward L. Torres, Chairman and CEO of Environmental Service Professionals, Inc. (OTCBB:EVSP) notes: "As the paper relates, 'Residence in a damp and moldy dwelling is linked with poor physical health outcomes, including respiratory problems, asthma, diarrhea, nausea, and headaches.'

    "The Environmental Service Professionals national programs and protocols are designed to assure homeowners that they can monitor and control mold and moisture in their dwellings. The recurring conditions mentioned above, according to Shenassa et. al., 'may be associated with anxiety and depression, thus mediating the potential association between exposure to dampness or mold and depression.' Further, the researchers stated that 'Our study underscores the importance of housing conditions as determinants of mental health and the importance of housing as a medium for universal health promotion efforts.' At ESP, we want to prevent the American Dream from becoming a nightmare.

"Through our Certified Environmental Home Inspector (CEHI) program, the consequences to both individual health and loss of property value associated with mold can be avoided. Homeowners can call on trained and certified professionals, who all use our Certified Moisture Inspection (CMI) protocol and offer the Mold and Moisture Management (MMM) annual inspection program. For the first time in the home inspection industry, our company offers a national gold standard in mold and moisture protocols. We priced these programs so that the average homeowner can afford them. Our goal is to offer peace of mind for your family, your home and your health."

Founded in April, 2006, ESP is the first publicly-traded company formed to consolidate the highly-fragmented home inspection industry and to specialize in environmental inspections. The company's first two acquisitions were National Professional Services, Inc. (NPS) and Allstate Home Inspection and Household Environmental Testing, Ltd. (AHI). NPS trains and educates industry stakeholders and consumers through certification programs; AHI offers a high-level home inspection and household environmental testing training curriculum along with the professionally-designated CEHI Program. The CEHI Program consists of a suite of environmental services: allergen screening, energy inspections, neighborhood environment reports, radon testing, moisture management program, mold testing, and new builder program. In March, 2007, ESP received the endorsement of the National Association for Moisture Management (NAMM) and Edward Torres became a Board Member of that organization. NAMM holds an exclusive license from ESP to use its Certified Moisture Professional protocol for educational purposes.
