Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 13, 2011
Advanced Drying Technologies has announced their new name, Advanced Drying & Environmental Technologies, a move designed to better reflect and represent the broad offering of services they provide.
The company has long been a provider of emergency water removal, mold remediation, and fire restoration services, but has more recently expanded to include indoor environmental concerns such as asbestos and lead testing, treatment, and abatement, as well as indoor air quality testing. Chief Technical Officer Ron D. Young said the name change was designed to reflect the broadening of the company’s services due to clients demand.
Air quality testing has become more and more important in recent years, as corporations, apartment complexes, and home builders strive to make sure that the indoor environment created is a healthy one. ADET understands this problem, utilizing cutting edge technology to investigate sources of contamination, and test the air and various surfaces for signs of mold, asbestos, or lead. If found, they can also remove the harmful material, as well as clean and sanitize all affected surfaces.
Indoor environmental issues have also become legal ones, especially in the workplace. Legal settlements resulting from illness due to harmful environmental conditions have been significant. As a result, business owners are finding it preferable (and less expensive) to address the problem head on by taking steps to improve the workplace indoor environmental issues. Home and rental property owners have taken similar steps to increase the air quality in their new construction.
ADET identifies the top indoor air quality dangers as:
Mold – the most common byproduct of any type of water damage, mold can establish in as little as 48 hours, spread rapidly, and bring with it all kinds of health hazards from slight allergic reactions to severe neurological disorders. With the humidity in Atlanta and Jacksonville, mold grows more rapidly; so, prompt mold removal is suggested to avoid unnecessary costs.
House Dust – found on virtually every surface in your home, house dust is made up of, well, pretty much anything, from fabric remnants, human skin cells, pet dander… any one of which can become an allergic irritant. Dusting all too often simply moves house dust from the surfaces into the surrounding air.
Dust Mites – found in virtually any home, no matter how clean, these microscopic organisms feed on the dead organic material shed by humans and animals.
Toxic Fumes – The result of most modern building materials, including paints, particle board, and even the most common household products. Continuous exposure to these materials may cause long term health problems.
Bacteria – harmful viruses may be transported through your indoor air circulation system.
