If you live or work in a building that was built prior to 1990, you may be at risk. Many old buildings contain asbestos, and mold can grow anywhere where there is food and moisture to support it. The building could be a house, a commercial business, or a manufacturing plant. Empire Health & Safety provides testing and inspection services, ensuring your air is free of any asbestos fibres or mold spores, both of which can cause many adverse health effects through inhalation.
Our mold and asbestos testing services are available to the following types of clients:
At the first point of contact, we will come within a week to test your air quality. The testing itself usually takes about 2 or 3 days to produce meaningful results. Once we have those, we can refer you to a reliable removal firm. While they are taking care of the removal, we will be on site to make sure everything goes smoothly and to continuously monitor the air to ensure the health and safety of everyone in the area. This can take a few weeks. When the project is complete, we do a final air check to make sure that everything has indeed been removed. Finally, you will get the all clear to go back into your building.
