Environmental Inspections and Sampling

Asbestos
Lead

Radon

Today's prospective property owner faces an enormous challenge in meeting state and federal guidelines for indoor air quality and minimizing their investor's and insurance carrier's liability. Inspections and sampling are required to fully determine what environmental contamination may exist and what the costs would be to remediate potential problems. AccuPro Inspection Services can help through Environmental Inspections and Sampling.

Asbestos - asbestos is a naturally occurring substance used in various building materials to give the material strength and/or body. Unfortunately, asbestos can release microscopic fibers into the air that then get into our lungs where the fiber becomes trapped, and may lead to Mesothilioma, a type of cancer. While a significant effort was undertaken in the late 1970s to eliminate the use of asbestos in building materials, there is still much of it in use today. AccuPro can provide sampling of suspect building materials as a part of your inspection and provide the resulting Certified Lab Report. Top of Page
Lead - Lead is a toxic metal that was used for many years in products found in and around our building structures. Additionally, it may be found in the water distribution system (pipes) of older buildings as lead was typically used in plumbing materials prior to the mid 1970s. Lead may cause a range of health effects; from behavioral problems and learning disabilities, to seizures and death. Children six-years-old and under are most at risk. AccuPro can provide sampling for lead as a part of your inspection and provide you with the resulting Certified Lab Report. Top of Page
Mold - Should you have a concern with a current property or are considering purchasing a new property, we can help. If current tenants or employees are concerned about indoor air quality issues, or there have been prior moisture intrusion problems, we can help. By identifying the source of the problem and taking air samples or surface testing, we document acceptable levels of mold spores or confirm that areas in question have been remediated to acceptable levels (see Environmental Overview).

Other - There are many other indoor contaminates, such as dog and cat dander; cockroach particulates; dust mites; Formaldehyde and various gases, such as natural gas, propane and carbon monoxide. AccuPro does most indoor environmental testing, so if it has not been discussed here, please give us a call at (480) 456-8809 to see if we can help with any of your environmental concerns!

Radon - Arizona is considered to be in Zone II (EPA Radon Guidelines for Arizona), and has a "Moderate Potential" for the presence of excessive levels of indoor radon. The EPA recommends that appropriate action be taken when indoor radon levels are 4 pCi/L or more. AccuPro utilizes the E-Perm Radon Canister rather than the less reliable inexpensive charcoal canisters, which are not documentable. We then provide a formal report from a Certified Laboratory, which is typically required for commercial property transactions.
