LEAD BASED PAINT IS HAZARDOUS TO YOUR HEALTH
Lead paint is injurious to one’s health. It can cause nervous system damage, stunted growth, kidney damage, and delayed development. Children are at high risk to lead poisoning especially those residing on old, neglected and dilapidated buildings.
Even though, the United States’ (CPSC) banned lead paint in 1977 in residential properties and public buildings, along with toys and furniture containing lead paint, the threat for lead paint exposure is an ongoing worry and concern.
It is dangerous to children because it mimics a sweet taste, which is similar to the taste derived when eating candy. This sensation encourages children to put lead chips and toys with lead dust in their mouths.
Property owners have a responsibility to their tenants. Landlords need to provide documented disclosure to existing and prospective tenants detailing the locations of confirmed lead-based paint on the property. The Residential Lead-Based Hazard Reduction Act (AKA the “Lead Paint Act”) was created in order to ensure that the disclosure of any lead-based hazards in a building be discussed with potential buyers or renters of units.

HVAC SYSTEMS – THE IMPORTANCE OF REGULAR CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
It is that time of the year again and with sweltering temperatures outside, the air conditioning system is going to be heavily utilized. Air conditioners are an appliance and as is the case with any appliance, for optimal use and efficiency requires maintenance.
Airduct cleaning for any property is needed to ensure the longer lasting operation of a HVAC system. Air ducts are often exposed to contaminants. If not maintained on a regular basis, these areas are the breeding grounds for mold and bacteria. Debris, pollutants and allergens can become trapped in these areas. The performance of an HVAC system can be further compromised by possible rodent infestations. If rodents are present, they could produce fecal spores which further contaminates the quality of the air when circulated. The damage to Indoor air quality can be further exacerbated as there may be higher grid of energy needing to be used if ducts are extremely dirty, which will also result in increased energy bills.
AirTek Indoor Air Solutions, the Commercial HVAC professionals, offers a professional air duct cleaning service to ensure that the air flow is kept free clear of contaminants and the property HVAC system is working in an efficient and proper manner.
STRIVING TO ENSURE TOTAL CLIENT SATISFACTION
“Incredible service from Jeremie Mcphail and Alliance Environmental. Jeremie came out to evaluate our “mold infestation” and coordinated the project. Instead of it being a frightening experience, he made sure we understood the process, helped us navigate and understand the “what ifs” and what to expect each step along the way. His estimate was literally 2/3 of what our contractor’s “guy” wanted to charge us, and there were no hidden costs. The remediation was completed quickly and completely, and we were able to resume our remodeling process within a week of contacting Alliance. Jeremie stayed closely in touch during the project and was available to help and guide us every step of the way. I can’t recommend him or Alliance highly enough.”
