Our services ensure a safe environment for all your home’s residents and visitors.
Asbestos Testing & Assessment
Asbestos once was used for manufacturing a variety of products used in home construction. Fireproofing, thermal insulation, ceiling tiles, flooring tiles, shingles, and other materials incorporated asbestos. Today, the dangers of asbestos are well-documented, and we no longer include the material in our construction products. That doesn’t mean asbestos construction materials were removed from existing structures. If you live in an older home, you could be surrounded by asbestos.
Aegis Environmental Services offers home inspections, clearance sampling, and laboratory testing. We can detect if asbestos air particles are a potential danger in your home through monitoring and analysis. We offer abatement supervision that will ensure your home is safe for you and your loved ones.
Lead Testing & Assessment
Lead contamination remains a concern for many homeowners and residents across the Midwest. We find lead present in the soil, drinking water, and paint of homes. The ground can have traces of lead from past leaded car gas or flaked exterior paint. It’s present in drinking water from deteriorating lead piping or solder. Lead paint can be found under existing layers of non-leaded paint throughout the home.
Any project that could disturb lead-based paint in a home built before 1978 must follow specific practices to prevent lead contamination. Aegis Environmental Services has state-certified lead inspectors who do lead-in-paint assessments, soil and dust sampling, water testing, and clearance testing. Our contractors offer abatement supervision so that you can live in your home with peace of mind.
Indoor Air Quality Testing
Did you know indoor airborne pollutants can lead to severe health impacts? These pollutants can include but are not limited to: bacteria, molds, viruses, animal dander, carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Aegis Environmental Services offers in-depth assessments and indoor air monitoring to find what could be circulating throughout your home without your knowledge.
Meth Lab Remediation
The manufacturing of meth leaves more than a musty smell behind. It contaminates the living area and creates an unsafe environment. Aegis Environmental Services is experienced in the inspection and remediation of former illegal drug manufacturing properties. We will work with you, the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM), and your insurance company to address the environmental concerns left behind.
Heating Oil Tank Closure
Heating oil tanks are prone to leaks, leading to an expensive clean-up bill for the homeowner. Aegis Environmental Services is a certified tank closure and removal specialist. We have experience with above-ground (AST) and underground storage tank (UST) removal and closure. Rely on our remediation services to protect your home and oil supply.
Mold Investigation & Testing
All homes are susceptible to mold, especially after water damage or in persistently moist areas. When left untreated, mold leads to a host of health problems for a home’s occupants. Our team of professionals will test for mold, investigate the source, and offer remediation services to rid your home of mold contamination.
Radon Investigation & Testing
Radon is a silent danger present in homes across the United States. This colorless, odorless gas creeps into our homes through cracks in the foundation, water wells, sump pits, and environmental pressures. The EPA recommends radon levels remain below four pCi/L. Only radon testing will reveal if your home has the gas present and to what degree.
Is your drinking water truly safe? Even homes supplied by public water systems could have water contamination, usually from the water supply lines running directly to your house. Many contaminants are tasteless, odorless, and colorless. Aegis Environmental Services water testing looks at a range of water quality concerns, from the pH to the presence of heavy metals.
