At Aegis Environmental, we treat every residential living space with the same care and concern of our own home. Our team of highly trained and qualified experts pays close attention to each part of your home or building to ensure it’s safe and protected from pollutants such as lead, radon, asbestos, mold, and other environmental hazards.
Our branch office in Michigan City, IN offers practical solutions to curb the negative impact
of toxic materials and pollutants with efficiency and effectiveness.
Asbestos Testing & Assessment
Asbestos was commonly used in construction before 1981. Soon after 1981, however, the use of asbestos was banned as it was found that asbestos residue and particles can severely harm human health. Asbestos becomes deadly especially when it cracks and turns into minute dust particles. These dust particles penetrate your lungs and cause respiratory diseases, cancer, and other health disorders.
If you’re wondering whether your home is contaminated with asbestos, avoid tackling the issue by yourself and call us instead. Our team of professionals will conduct a thorough inspection by testing your building to identify asbestos-ridden materials, fixtures, and areas.
We offer: home inspections, air monitoring and analysis, clearance sampling, laboratory testing, and abatement supervision.
Lead Testing & Assessment
Lead can be detected in every natural element of our surroundings like the soil, air, and water. Lead can also be found in our homes.
Older plumbing materials like pipe fittings, tap fittings, and fixtures use lead solder. When these materials corrode, lead can easily disintegrate from the pipes and enter your drinking water. Like older plumbing fixtures, older homes may have lead paint that must be removed by a qualified profession. It is not a DIY project. The presence of lead in your home can cause several health issues and can be particularly harmful to children.
If you suspect you have a lead problem, give us a call! Our team of professionals are experts in the following areas: lead-in-paint assessments, soil/dust sampling, abatement, clearance testing supervision, and water testing.
Indoor Air Quality Testing
It’s important for the air you breath in your home to be clean and healthy. From conducting a thorough initial survey to performing an extensive chemical exposure evaluation, we test and monitor indoor air for pollutants such as mold, lead, asbestos, carbons, radon, particulates, insecticides, and more.
Meth Lab Remediation
Meth lab clean up services include inspections, consulting, and remediation services. In addition we also provide a certificate of decontamination, regulatory compliance, and assist with insurance claims as needed. Don’t leave your health to chance, call us today!
Heating Oil Tank Closure
Many older homes had furnaces fueled by heating oil stored in either above-ground storage tanks (AST) or underground storage tank (UST). Often times as these tanks age, leaks occur create environmental issues for home owners. Our certified team at Aegis Environmental can help you with heating oil tank closure or removal in a cost-effective manner.
Mold Investigation & Testing
Aegis Environmental will assess and determine the source of mold contamination in your home. First, we locate the potential sources of water intrusion, then we identify and test for molds, and finally, we devise a plan to remove or remediate mold contamination.
Radon Investigation & Testing
Our team of professionals tests for elevated levels of radon in your homes. We conduct services such as pre-purchase home inspections, pre-listing home inspections, mitigation oversight, and clearance testing.
Aegis Environmental professionals run initial surveys followed by in-depth investigations to determine the source of the problem. We test your water for various factors including drinkability or potability, pH levels, hardness, volatile organic compounds, radon, toxic metals, pesticides or herbicides, and lead.
