Radon is an invisible, odorless gas that is emitted by geological formations and can enter buildings through cracks and crevices. It can cause lung cancer after 20 years or more of exposure. Many residential and commercial building owners want to find out if the levels exceed the action level of 4 pico-Curies per liter (pCi/l) established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). ESC has Florida Certified Radon Measurement Technicians who complete the testing professionally under the direction of a Florida Certified Radon Measurement Specialist in compliance with the regulatory requirements. Concise reports are prepared for you, the client, to easily understand. You will have peace of mind when we complete your radon testing.
Chinese drywall was installed in thousands of buildings during the building boom after Hurricane Katrina, when there was a shortage of drywall. The reduced sulfur compounds produced a disgusting “fireworks” odor and corroded copper piping and wiring in the buildings. Many occupants reported health problems from the exposure and could not sell the buildings. Lawsuits resulted and settlements funded cleanups. Clients have come to depend on ESC to:
- Sample drywall & complete laboratory analysis
- Inspect on site to determine indicator criteria
- Test on-site for Strontium with an X-Ray Fluorescent (XRF) Meter
- Test Air for the Sulfur Compounds
- Test New Drywall before it is Installed
