With school districts finishing classes for summer, Allied Environmental Services, Inc. (Allied), one of the Midwest’s leading environmental firms, readies itself for the busy summer maintenance season.

Summer break is a busy time for school maintenance and facilities crews. Many districts take advantage of the empty halls and classrooms by completing a wide range of environmentally sensitive projects including asbestos removal/repair, AHERA 3-year inspections, laboratory chemical management/disposal, neutralization tank cleaning and underground storage tank upgrades or removal. With offices in Toledo and Lima, Allied assists many school districts and universities throughout Ohio with such projects.

According to Chad Reynolds, Allied Sales Manager, summer break can be a hectic time for environmental professionals. “It is much easier and safer for schools to complete certain projects when class is out of session and there are fewer building occupants”, stated Reynolds. “When dealing with hazardous materials such as asbestos, mercury or lab chemicals, it is sometimes necessary to temporarily isolate a section of the building, which is not easy to do during the school year”, he added.

Most of the projects are scheduled in advance as part of routine maintenance, but some arise as unforeseen or emergency issues. “Allied completes many projects for numerous school districts each summer and we always ask the schools to contact us early on to schedule work. Fortunately, Allied is a 24-hr emergency response provider, so we can respond to any situation at a moment’s notice”, Reynolds said.
