The presence of mold, asbestos or lead in your home or business can pose potentially serious health hazards to you and those you care about. Toxic substances are the last thing you want to deal with. However, testing for these substances is important, especially in older homes or buildings. Central Coast Casualty Restoration, Inc. is here to help. We provide testing services for mold, asbestos, and lead so you can rest assured your property is safe for you and those you care about.
Mold can cause many serious health problems, like respiratory problems, pneumonia, headaches, and asthma. Mold can also contribute to ongoing allergy problems. Young children, the elderly, and those with pre-existing health conditions are at a higher risk for negative health consequences from mold.
Mold thrives with moisture and a dark environment. It is notorious for growing behind wallpaper in bathrooms, behind cabinets, or in attics, crawlspaces, and basements. Homes or buildings with past water damage that has not been removed by a professional company are susceptible to mold growth. Microbial growth needs warmth and moisture to propagate and spread.
If you suspect there is mold in your home or business, we recommend you have an inspection done right away. CCCR has the knowledge and equipment to check for mold throughout any space. Based on the results of our inspection, our expert technicians can advise you on next steps to solve the problem.
Asbestos is often found in structures built before 1986. It is well known that exposure to asbestos causes a series of severe conditions and diseases, such as asbestosis, pleural disease, and mesothelioma.
Testing for asbestos in your home or business includes a thorough inspection and often multiple samples. Air can be monitored on-site to check for asbestos particles within the space. CCCR has the knowledge and equipment to test for asbestos, deliver results quickly and advise you on the next steps to safely removal or repair.
The presence of lead can cause serious long-term health and behavior problems for people, especially children under the age of six. Lead can also harm a pregnant woman and her developing fetus.
Lead can be found in paint, dust and/or soil. For homes built before 1978, it is especially important to test for lead if there is peeling or chipping paint or if you plan to remodel or renovate. Homes built before 1950 almost always have some lead-based paint and testing in these older homes is crucial.
When you purchase a home, federal laws require the seller to provide an informational pamphlet and to disclose any known lead hazards in the home. You then have ten days to inspect for lead.
CCCR is available to perform thorough lead inspections and testing if any of these situations apply to your location.
