It’s very important to do your research to ensure that the mold testing company you hire is certified and fully licensed,” stresses Valley.
Toronto, ON (PRWEB) March 17, 2012
Toronto’s premier mold testing company and inspection service experts, Environmental Services Group, have succeeded in building their reputation as the leading experts in Toronto and the GTA. The cutting-edge professionals work closely with clients to assess and remediate environmental hazards commonly found in both commercial and residential properties such as mold, asbestos and lead that can lead to health and safety hazards. Their accuracy and professionalism has made them the trusted source and resource for certified environmental assessment in Toronto, the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and Southwest Ontario.
In a recent episode called “Home making you sick?” on CP24’s Wylde On Health, Tara Valley, Senior Environmental Consultant and Indoor Air Quality Specialist for the Environmental Services Group shared some common issues that affect residential properties. Some of the bigger concerns were identified as attics, basements, inside walls and bathrooms. A few surprising culprits made it on to the list as well such as car-mats and ceilings. These areas turned up toxins and molds in ESG’s professional mold inspection services of several residential and commercial properties. “Mold and toxins can cause very serious health issues,” says Valley. “This is especially predominant among the young, elderly and individuals with respiratory problems,” Valley adds.
Companies like Environmental Services Group in particular execute mold testing. “It’s important to contact a professional when you find mold in your home,” explains Valley. “It’s not just important to have the hazard removed and cleaned up, it is critical to have a final mold test to verify that the source of the mold has been properly removed to ensure it doesn’t return to harmful levels,” Valley says. One of the major issues affecting families and companies who are trying to eradicate the deadly substance is the increasing number of unlicensed and unqualified people looking to take advantage of homeowners. “It’s very important to do your research to ensure that the mold testing company you hire is certified and fully licensed,” stresses Valley.
Further demonstration of the expertise of ESG was seen a few months ago on an episode of one of HGTV’s popular property renovation programs, “Income Properties”. The team at ESG was called in to assess the mold removal job performed on an old home that was being modernized for an episode.
ESG is not limited to doing inspections for mold, but has expertise in detecting asbestos containing materials, asbestos air sampling, and indoor air quality assessments.
