Mold is present everywhere, but it only becomes a problem in moist environments where mold spores can develop and flourish. If your house in Kingwood, WV, has been flooded, damaged by a leaking roof, plumbing or HVAC system failure, or is improperly vented, poorly drained, or has foundation problems, water infiltration and/or high humidity levels may be promoting mold growth behind walls and other hidden areas. We can test the air and surfaces of your Preston County home for mold contamination so you can take action, as needed.
Not only can mold cause allergies and health problems, but it may also damage the surfaces on which it grows. While no mold spores are healthy to breathe, if a mycotoxin-producing mold is present you may be at risk of serious health risks with potentially fatal consequences. We can determine whether the mold growth has been caused by water damage and perform mold remediation service so you can enjoy a fresher, healthier living space in your Preston County, WV home.
Asbestos is commonly used in friction applications, in high-heat areas, and as a common blown insulation in many Terra Alta and Preston County, West Virginia attics. There are serious health risks of asbestos exposure, including lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis (fibrous scarring of lung tissue). Although intact asbestos poses little harm, when damaged, scraped, sanded, or otherwise disturbed, invisible asbestos fibers can become airborne. When air flows over loose-fill asbestos attic insulation, the material may spread through the entire home where particles may be breathed in and lodged within the lungs. Appalachian Environmental Testing & Consulting is a West Virginia Licensed Asbestos Inspector with expertise reliably identifying and testing for the presence of asbestos-contaminated materials known to pose these serious health risks.
