Greenwood Environmental Consulting Services
Over 50,000 people call Greenwood, IN home. Our community is large enough to attract business and industry but still small enough where you can get to know your neighbors. Greenwood is a community where you catch up with friends at the weekend Farmer’s Market, meet the buddies for a round of golf, and let the kids run free at the Splash Pad.
This is a great place to live, and Aegis Environmental Services is here to keep the environment around the community safe. We offer testing and remediation services that protect the land, air, and water quality around your home so you can spend more time enjoying all Greenwood has to offer.
Asbestos Testing & Assessment
Today, we know about the dangers of asbestos. While we no longer use asbestos to manufacture thermal insulation, fireproofing, ceiling and floor tiles, shingles, and other materials found throughout the home, that doesn’t mean the material is not present. Older homes could still have asbestos in any part of the structure, from the walls to the plumbing. Homeowners could be surrounded by asbestos products and not know it.
The removal of asbestos is essential to providing a safe and healthy place to live for you and your family. It begins with a home inspection and sample testing. Greenwood homeowners use the qualified contractors at Aegis Environmental Services to assess the potential danger in their homes. We also offer abatement supervision to help remove the product from the property while reducing the amount of asbestos present and clearance testing.
Lead Testing & Assessment
Ongoing and large-scale problems from lead contamination have been well documented in the media over the last few years. Just because the Federal Government banned the use of lead products doesn’t mean our homes are free from lead contamination.
Despite being removed from paint in 1978, lead paint remains the leading cause of lead poisoning in children. Lead paint can be present under layers of non-leaded paint. Any home built before 1978 could be at risk for lead in the paint and the dust particles present throughout the house.
Lead can be found in our drinking water. Deteriorating lead piping or lead solder can release particles into our water supply. Lead may also be present in the soil surrounding the home from flaked exterior paint or past leaded gas.
If your home was built before 1978, prevent any further lead contamination. Aegis Environmental Services has state-certified lead inspectors who will assess and test for the presence of lead in various areas of your home.
Indoor Air Quality Testing
Did you know the air inside your home can be more polluted than the air outside? Airborne pollutants include bacteria, molds, animal dander, pest fecal matter, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and more. If you suspect the air inside of your home is making you sick, Aegis Environmental Solutions offers air quality testing and indoor air monitoring. Find what is floating unseen through your home.
Meth Lab Remediation
Cleaning up after a home has been used in the manufacture of methamphetamine is not an easy process. It requires communication with the Indiana Department of Environmental Management, possibly your insurance agency, and more parties. Aegis Environmental Services will inspect and assist with the remediation of former meth lab properties, ensuring a safe environment for the new occupants.
Heating Oil Tank Closure
Many homeowners use oil to warm their homes during our frigid Midwestern winters. Proper heating oil tank maintenance is essential for preventing leaks that contaminate the environment. Aegis Environmental Services can assess above-ground tanks (AST) or underground storage tanks (UST) and assist in oil tank removal.
Mold Investigation & Testing
Anytime a home experiences water damage, mold becomes a concern. It can also be present in any areas that tend to stay moist, such as basements or bathrooms. Untreated mold growth can lead to a range of health problems. It’s essential to diagnose the mold and remediate the situation to maintain a safe home environment.
Radon Investigation & Testing
Radon is an odorless and colorless gas that can lead to lung cancer. It naturally occurs in the soil and makes its way into our homes through cracks in the foundation, sump pits, and water wells. Our radon testing services will reveal if radon is present in your home and if it is within the acceptable level indicated by the EPA.
When people think of water contamination, they typically think of lead. However, water can be contaminated from many different sources, such as pesticides or herbicides, heavy metals, and other organic compounds. Water contaminants are often tasteless, colorless, and odorless. If you have questions about your water quality, Aegis Environmental Services can check for a range of concerns, from water hardness to volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
