Often going undetected by most, the first effects are itchy eyes, running nose, and weakened immune systems. The cause could be the growth of mould within the home or office. It is a common problem that can also cause allergies. Both dormant and active spores should not be disturbed and must be removed, following specific protocols by a certified technician.
If this situation sounds similar to what you’re experiencing, call us to have it safely remediated.
Buildings constructed prior to 1991 may have been constructed using lead paint products. Even if you have had your panelling or plaster replaced with drywall, your home’s or office’s window sills and door frames may still contain traces of the lead product. This also holds true for any exterior wood siding, decks, railings, or fascia. These products should not be sanded or disturbed in any way until they have been properly tested.
