Molds are part of the natural environment. Outdoors, molds play an integral part in nature by breaking down dead organic matter such as fallen leaves or trees, but indoors, mold growth should be avoided. Molds reproduce by means of tiny spores, which are invisible to the naked eye and are floating through the air, both indoors and outdoors. There are many types of mold, but none of them will grow without two key elements – water and moisture. After indoor mold is remediated, however, the source of the intrusive water and/or moisture must be eliminated or the mold will continue to grow.

Lead (Pb) is a naturally occurring element found in small amounts in all parts of our environment – the air, the soil, the water, and even inside our homes. While it has some beneficial uses, lead can be toxic to humans and animals. Lead and lead compounds have been used in a wide variety of products, including paint, ceramics, pipes and plumbing materials, gasoline, batteries, ammunition, and cosmetics. Federal and state regulatory standards have helped to minimize or eliminate the amount of lead in air, drinking water, soil, consumer products, food, and occupational settings. Lead can affect almost every organ and system in your body. Children six years old and younger are most susceptible to the effects of lead.

Asbestos (many different types – chrysotile (white) Mg3(Si2O5)(OH)4 – is the most common) is a mineral fiber that occurs naturally in rock and soil. Because of its fiber strength and heat resistance, asbestos has been used in a variety of building construction materials for insulation and as a fire retardant. Asbestos has also been used in a wide range of manufactured goods such as building materials (roof & siding shingles, ceiling & floor tiles, paper products and asbestos-cement products), friction products (automobile clutch, brake, and transmission parts), heat-resistant fabrics, packaging, gaskets, and coatings. Asbestos fibers may be released into the air by the disturbance of asbestos-containing material during product use, demolition work, building or home maintenance, repair, and remodeling. If asbestos-containing material is damaged or could be disturbed, there are two types of action that can be taken by a trained and accredited asbestos professional – encapsulation or abatement.

Radon (Rn) comes from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water and gets into the air you breathe. Radon can be found all over the U.S. and it can get into any type of building – homes, offices, schools, etc. Your greatest exposure to radon is at home, where you spend most of your time (indoors). You can’t see, smell or taste radon, but it is a cancer-causing, radioactive gas. It typically moves up through the ground to the air above and into your home through cracks and other holes in the foundation. Your home traps the radon inside, where it builds up. Any home can have a radon problem – new or old homes, well-sealed or drafty homes, and homes with or without basements. Radon reduction systems work quite well, and can reduce radon levels in your home by up to 99%, at a fairly reasonable cost.

VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) are organic chemicals that are widely used in building materials and household products. Building & remodeling often involves the use of paints, varnishes, sealants, and adhesives, as well as, pressed wood products, upholstery and carpeting, which all contain organic solvents. These are in addition to many cleaning, disinfecting, cosmetic, degreasing, and hobby products used in homes. Fuels are also made up of organic compounds. All of these products can release (off-gas) organic compounds while you are using them, and, to some degree, when they are stored. Some of the more well known VOCs, which are all carcinogenic, include formaldehyde (CH2O), benzene (C6H6), methylene chloride (CH2Cl2), and perchloroethylene (C2Cl4).
