Martinsville Environmental Services and Consulting

There are few places more nostalgic downtown Martinsville on a warm summer evening. The restaurants and boutique stores serve customers with local delicacies and specialties, and families and friends gather to talk about their days. The green fields and long country roads are what make this town comfortable – a place to call home.

These qualities make Martinsville an ideal place to settle down. And while Martinsville is a wonderful setting to raise a family, you want to be mindful of potential environmental hazards that may be in your home right now. We’re talking about environmental hazards like lead, mold, asbestos, contaminated water, leaking heat oil furnaces, and radon. These unseen, hard-to-detect substances pose a danger to your health and well-being.

They don’t have to stay around for long, though! Aegis Environmental can professionally and effectively remedy these issues and make your home safe again.

Asbestos Testing & Assessment

You’ve probably heard about the dangers of asbestos. In the past, it was used to insulate homes and commercial buildings. The natural mineral, which created an indestructible material to fire, was used behind walls, under roof shingles, and more. However, after the 1980s, asbestos was banned due to the dangers it posed to our health.

Years after working with asbestos and inhaling its fibers, people were diagnosed with lung cancer and other lung diseases. While the material is no longer used, it can still be found in homes built before 1981.

If you think there is asbestos present in your home, give us a call to come and investigate. This is a matter that should be handled by professionals with the proper training and protective gear. Please do not try to find or remove asbestos on your own.

When you call us in to handle asbestos, you can expect an investigation, certified lab analysis, air quality tests, and safe asbestos removal.

Lead Testing & Assessment

Lead was used in just about everything before we knew just how dangerous it was to children. It could be found in paint, children’s toys, pipes, makeup, batteries, and even ceramics. Once referred to as the “miracle metal,” governments soon banned the material. One necessary ban was of lead-based paint in 1978.

While lead is no longer used to manufacture items, it still poses a threat to our health. Old plumbing pipes with lead soldering are now corroding and contaminating your drinking water without you even knowing it.

If you live in a home built before the 1980s, we suggest you give us a call. The detrimental effects of lead poisoning aren’t immediately noticeable. We will come and investigate whether or not there is a lead presence in your home through water testing and lead-based paint assessments. If detected, we will remedy the situation quickly and effectively.

Indoor Air Quality Testing

We don’t often consider the quality of the air we breathe, especially in our own homes. It’s something to be checked, though. You would want to know if you were inhaling harmful chemicals like radon, lead, or mold, right? We’ll conduct air quality tests quickly and create a plan to increase your air quality if chemicals are detected.

Meth Lab Remediation

The chemicals found in a meth lab are hazardous to the health of you and your family. Our expert team of professionals will successfully remediate the area with efficient methods that follow standard regulations. Once finished, we’ll issue a certificate of decontamination and even help with any insurance claims involved.

Heating Oil Tank Closure

Before homes were heated with electricity and propane, people used heating oil tanks. These furnaces were filled with heating oil and placed either below or above ground. Now, they threaten the environment by slowly leaking oil into the ground and contaminating the groundwater, soil, and local wildlife.

Mold Investigation & Testing

Mold is a fairly common substance found in homes. That doesn’t mean it’s safe to have around. While some mold may be harmless, others can be quite irritating and detrimental to your health. If you suspect you have mold in your home, give us a call, and we’ll investigate the growth, identify the type of mold, find the water source, and clear it away.

Radon Investigation & Testing

This natural radioactive gas is often found in basements because it seeps through cracks in the foundation from the ground. When released in the open air, it isn’t harmful, but it can cause lung cancer when contained and inhaled. We’ll test for radon in your home as well as before you buy or sell a house and offer mitigation oversight if needed.

Water Testing

While you may taste a difference in certain waters, you probably won’t notice if it’s contaminated with harmful chemicals. If you’re curious about what’s in your water, let us perform a test to tell you exactly what you’re drinking. We’ll detect chemicals like radon, lead, pesticides, and even toxic metals. If found, we’ll investigate and solve the issue, so you have clean water to drink.

We had a fantastic experience with Aegis all along. They were prompt answering and scheduling us for an inspection. Jonathan Hoover came to check our basement for asbestos. He was very knowledgeable and took the time to kindly answer our many questions. It was so reassuring to work with someone so professional, patient, and so accommodating! I would absolutely recommend working with Aegis and won't hesitate hiring their services again in the future.

Mya was my technician and was quick and easy to work with. Their prices are higher then the others but to me it was worth it since they kept their promise time to get results. This made things much easier for me since I was waiting for these results for my mortgage. Thanks Aegis!

Fantastic company to work with. I'm under contract to buy a home and an underground storage tank was discovered by my home inspector. After a call with Aegis, they were able to get out to the property quickly to assess the problem. Turns out, there are FOUR underground storage tanks present since the property is multi-family. They have been very thorough, professional, and communicative to work with so far. I highly recommend working with them for any/all of your environmental remediation/cleanup needs.
