Covington Indoor Environmental Inspection & Remediation Services
Covington is among the fastest growing areas in Washington and it’s surrounded by lakes, parks, and other natural sights. The weather in this region is similar to Seattle, so all residents of this city need to keep the quality of their indoor air under observation.
Mold thrives in damp areas like the Pacific Northwest. Not only this, but national statistics suggest that lead paint is present in more than 1.2 million homes in Washington, so having your house inspected is the only way to create a safe environment in your home.
Lead Testing & Inspections
Although ancient civilizations used lead thousands of years ago. The use of this metal in consumer products was banned in the late 1970s. That said, lead paint and lead-contaminated soil can still be found in millions of home across the PNW.
The main problem with most Covington lead testing companies is that they are only qualified to collect specimens. This means that even if the results are positive, you won’t get advice on how to remove the contaminated materials safely.
This is why all of our team members carry the Lead Risk Assessor certification. This allows our contractors to go over possible solutions that help remove any dangerous materials without putting yourself or others at risk.
And, while lead-based paint testing is important, you also need to examine the soil around your house to make sure all areas of your home are safe.
Mold Inspection & Testing Services in Covington
The majority of Covington mold testing companies take a similar approach to mold testing. In most cases, inspectors will simply take a sample from the affected area and send it to a lab for examination. Sure, you’ll get the test results telling you the type of mold and the extent of the problem, but you won’t know what caused the unwanted growth.
A reliable home mold inspection company should do more than give you technical details about your problem. Aside from tests results, you should also get information about the source of the problem and tips on how to prevent it from happening again.

Instead of only relying on a lab test, we also carry out a full examination of your property in order to determine what’s causing the problem.
