If you need help determining whether or not your project faces the risk of asbestos, call us today. Shield works with teams around the Southeast to efficiently evaluate any job site, from whole apartment complexes to single-business facilities. Our accredited asbestos inspectors work quickly to provide you with a comprehensive report with minimal invasiveness and we’ll work with you on budgeting, timing, and locating an abatement contractor if your property is found to contain asbestos.
Knowing whether or not your site contains contaminants like lead prior to demolition can save you time, money, and alleviate your liability exposure and will help you make informed choices on construction materials. If your structure was painted prior to 1978, you have cause for concern; call Shield Engineering’s Environmental Due Diligence Team today to lessen your risk.
Persistent moisture is a critical factor in indoor mold growth. Shield’s mold experts have years of experience identifying potential risks, containing the source of the problem, and eliminating mold at its source in both commercial and residential properties. The longer mold is allowed to grow the more property damage and potential health effects you’re likely to face, so call now to get started with a moisture intrusion evaluation.
Vapor Intrusion is a relatively new field and its implications can be quite complex. Buildings that are situated on contaminated land are at risk of harmful vapors from sources like soil and groundwater. Even if your environmental incident was “closed” under a Brownfield agreement, you may still be at risk from a financial and a liability standpoint concerning tenants and residents. Shield has extensive experience and industry-leading expertise in evaluating, correcting, and mitigating real and perceived risks from Vapor Intrusion.
