Avon, Indiana Environmental Services and Consulting
Avon, Indiana is a town that emanates the heart and soul of midwestern life. Incorporated in 1995, Avon is located just 5 miles west of downtown Indianapolis and is only a 10 minute drive to Indianapolis International Airport. Avon is home to many four star schools and was the first “Tree City USA Community” in Hendricks county. While Avon is a beautiful town perfect for raising a family, it does come with the possibility of hidden risks. Many older homes could have lead paint, may have antiquated heating oil tanks, and asbestos. And radon is always a concern regardless of the age of a structure.
If you have a concern about lead, radon, mold, or asbestos call Aegis Environmental so that we can come out, test your home or building, and address any issues that we may find. We’re professionally recognized experts and take great pride in our work. Call today for more information!
Asbestos Testing & Assessment
Asbestos was a widely used construction material in homes and buildings built before 1981. It was used in flooring, roofing, insulation, drywall and a host of other residential building materials. While the main benefit to asbestos was its superior fire resistance, it was also and efficient insulator.
Asbestos usually becomes a threat after it’s “disturbed”. Whether you’re demoing an old home or rehabing, once disturbed, asbestos fibers can be inhaled and cause a host of illnesses and disease that can be debilitating and sometimes fatal.
If you feel like you may have asbestos in your home, call Aegis for a full evaluation. We’ll inspect your home, take samples, test those samples and provide a full report of our findings. If we do find asbestos, we’ll also provide a plan and options for removing it. We are certified professionals and ready to help – call today!
Lead Testing & Assessment
It’s important to remember that just because the US government banned the use of lead in many products and uses, it doesn’t mean that it doesn’t exist. The fact is it does still exist in many homes and building built prior to 1978. It exists in the form of paint, plumbing fixtures and materials, leaded gas, and even appliances.
Like asbestos, lead doesn’t pose much of a danger until it’s consumed. Consumption can be in the form of inhalation or drinking tainted water or food supplies. The biggest threat is lead paint. The those at the highest risk of being negatively affected by lead are young children.
If you suspect that your home may have lead paint or other lead contaminants, give yourself the piece of mind you deserve and have professionals like Aegis Environmental come out and test your home or building. Your family deserves to be protected and we’d love to be part of that process. Testing is simple, non-invasive, and affordable. Why wait? Call Aegis today!

Mold, radon, VOC’s, bacteria, and viruses are just a few of the pollutants hanging out in your home. Have your air tested today and get the piece of mind your family deserves.
Meth Lab Remediation
If you smell a musty ammonia scent, vinegar, and/or burnt plastic in your home or rental then you may be living in a home used to manufacture Methamphetamines. The residual chemicals can be incredibly dangerous and harmful. The only way to know for sure is to have a wipe test done. And if the test is positive, the only way to have your house remediated (cleaned) is by a certified Meth Lab Remediation professional like Aegis Environemental.
Heating Oil Tank Closure
Heating your home with oil was a popular option 60 years ago. As heating options improved, oil heat took a back seat to natural gas and electric furnaces. The end result is many older homes with legacy heating oil tanks that are slowly eroding away. If you have such a tank in your basement or yard, give Aegis a call. We’d be happy to remove your heating oil tank affordably and professionaly.
Mold Investigation & Testing
Exposure to mold in your home can be irritating and dangerous – especially to sensitive individuals. If you notice a musty, earthy smell in the house or have recently experienced water damage we can help. Our team of mold experts can identify whether or not you have mold and provide options to fix the problem. Call Aegis Environmental today!
Radon Investigation & Testing
Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the USA. There’s also no way to know if you have a radon problem without actually testing for it. That’s were Aegis Environmental can help – our radon testing and mitigation experts can test for radon and then guide you down the best approach for fixing the problem. Call us for more information about radon testing and mitigation.
