HAZMAT
REMEDIATION

Toxic Mould is defined as a large concentration of mould within a structure. Serious microbial growth can occur when moisture makes contact with susceptible building materials

THE HEALTH RISKS OF LEAD

Lead poisoning can cause serious illness, especially in children. Children can be exposed to lead by breathing lead dust or eating chips of old paint that contain lead. Exposure can also occur through dermal contact (touching) surfaces that contain lead.

The long term effects of lead on a child can be severe. They include learning disabilities, decreased growth, hyperactivity, impaired hearing, and even brain damage. If caught early, these effects can be limited by reducing exposure to lead or by medical treatment.

If you are pregnant avoid exposing yourself to lead. Lead can pass through your body to your baby.

WHAT IS MOULD?

The term “mould” refers to a broad group of over 100,000 known microorganisms. Mould, also known in biology as “fungi”, occur naturally in the environment and play a vital role in the global ecosystem. Background levels of mould spores are nearly always present both outside and within buildings and do not pose a health hazard.

Toxic mould is defined as large concentrations of mould within a home or building, far in excess of background levels. Certain species of mould are more toxic than others.

Serious mould growth will not usually occur unless an environment develops within a home that is conducive to growth.

Specifically, mould reproduces when there is an appropriate surface on which to colonize combined with sufficient moisture and heat. Water damage or humidity issues inside a home, often lead to mould growth.

HAZMAT REMEDIATION SERVICES

Lead Remediation

Despite its known toxicity, lead was used extensively in old paints and coatings due to its superior mechanical and chemical properties which made for long-lasting, high-quality paint coatings.

Toxic Metals, Cadmium

Heavy metals including mercury and cadmium are often present in manufacturing and industrial environments.

Bird Poop, Animal Poop, Bat Guano, Rat Droppings, Animal Waste

Animal excrement, guano, and bird poop can pose significant hazards to human health despite their “natural” origin. In some cases, animal excrement may amass into large piles which are immediately dangerous to human health.

Fluorescent Tubes, PCBs, Tube Light, Electronic Ballasts, fluorescent light ballasts

Your average fluorescent lighting tube contains a significant amount of hazardous material, multiply that by hundreds or thousands of fixtures and you have a hazard that needs to be carefully disposed of.

Lead Dust Removal, Lead Dust Containment

Lead dust can be found in many manufacturing environments and as a by-product of failed lead paint in many facilities and homes. Lead dust poses a significant hazard to building occupants and tradespeople.

PCBs

Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are a group of manmade chemicals. They are oily liquids or solids, clear to yellow in color, with no smell or taste. PCBs are very stable mixtures that are resistant to extreme temperature and pressure. PCBs were used widely in electrical equipment like capacitors and transformers. Paint and coatings were also formulated to contain PCBs.

Combustible Dust, Silica Dust

Silica dust is a common by-product of general construction and is frequently present. Combustible dust presents an immediate risk to life and health.

Lab Hoods, Fume Hoods, Fume Exhaust, Fume Extractor

Laboratory fume hoods and other fume extractors help keep operators and building occupants safe, yet they may accumulate dangerous concentrations of various hazardous chemicals or biological agents.
