Other Hazards:


Of course, mold remediation commonly involves demolition of moldy and/or water damaged building materials. Removing certain building materials (especially in older buildings) without knowing if they contain other hazardous materials (such as asbestos or lead paint), is a serious risk to your workers and occupants of the building.
Let’s face it, your workers may be generally aware of possible hazards, but how is that knowledge incorporated into your everyday business practices? Completing jobs quickly and efficiently is critical to your business success. Environmental hazards can slow you down, pose a risk to your workers and customers and cost you time and money. In some cases there may be substantial legal liability when these hazards are not controlled.
The risk of asbestos exposure during mold remediation has caused many insurance companies (including Travelers and State Farm) to require asbestos sampling in older buildings prior to any demolition or disturbance of materials suspected of containing asbestos. 
GSE currently provides pre-remediation asbestos (and lead paint) surveys for many contractors - we’d like to add you to our growing family of clients!
While this smart policy can protect your interests as a contractor and protect building occupants and visitors, you need the support of an experienced, qualified and responsive industrial hygiene firm to be sure that testing is done quickly and properly. 
  • Asbestos was often used in older wallboard, plaster and joint compound to add strength and fire resistance?
  • Asbestos was commonly used in caulking and window glazing?
  • Asbestos is still used in many building products such as insulating panels, appliances, roofing and siding, adhesives, brake linings, heating system gaskets, among others?
  • Buildings constructed into the 1990’s and beyond may still contain asbestos?
  • The USEPA requires contractor training in lead safe work practices.
  • Lead Paint can cause a health hazard if disturbed even if it has been painted over with non-lead paint many times?
Our consulting team is prepared to assist you when “other hazards” such as asbestos and lead-based paint are suspected
