Environmental hazards such as meth, asbestos, and lead are present in many homes, and they can cause serious health-related issues. Safeguard your family’s health through pharmaceutical testing.
Asbestos is a heat-resistant mineral that is woven into insulation and fabrics. Although it’s useful, it can also be very dangerous. Airborne asbestos dust and fibers can cause serious illnesses, such as lung cancer and mesothelioma.
Many household items contain asbestos, including:
- wall and attic insulation
- siding and roofing materials
- heat-resistant fabrics
- patching compounds and textured paint
- vinyl floor tiles
We’ll take samples of materials from your home and measure the amount of asbestos present. If any concerns are found, we’ll advise you about corrective measures you can take.
Lead can be found pretty much anywhere: in soil, the air, and even water. Many products also contain lead, or compounds derived from lead, such as batteries, paint, plumbing materials, and cosmetics. Lead poisoning is a serious disease, most commonly affecting young children and expectant mothers.
Because of the many ways lead can enter your home, it’s smart to consider lead testing. At 1st Rate Inspections, we’ll thoroughly inspect your home for any presence of lead. We’ll provide you with a detailed report of our findings including the location and level of lead present.
Methamphetamine is a dangerous, highly addictive drug. If produced or smoked in a home, meth can saturate the ceiling, walls, and floor. The drug is both colorless and odorless, making it almost impossible to know if your home is contaminated.
At 1st Rate Inspections, we’ll collect samples from around your home and conduct a methamphetamine analysis. After testing, we’ll provide you with a detailed report highlighting the level of meth, if any, found.
