Count on the experts at M3 Environmental Consulting to test your Monterey, California business for hazardous materials. As the name implies, these materials pose health risks for you, your employees, and your customers as your building ages.
Mold, Lead & More
Some hazardous materials are well-known concerns, like mold, lead, and asbestos, but others aren’t talked about as often, such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and noise pollution. Our inspectors have the tools and expertise to uncover all of these hidden risks.
Common Sources Of Hazardous Materials
- Cleaning Products — VOCs
- Flooring — Mold, VOCs
- Furniture And Wallpaper — VOCs
- Insulation — Asbestos
- Paint — Lead, VOCs
- Water — Bacteria, Lead, Mold
Ensure Employee Safety
Many of our services have straightforward links to keeping your employees safe and healthy. Mold testing can prevent employees from having allergic reactions. Lead testing can keep your entire workforce from getting poisoned.
If your business is located in an older building, asbestos testing is critical to reducing the chances of your workers from developing asbestos-related cancer later in life.
Air & VOC Testing For Businesses
Our VOC testing services can detect the presence of potentially hazardous chemicals. Though many VOCs aren’t harmful in themselves, all of them can reduce the indoor air quality of your office.
Poor air quality can cause you and your staff to come down with sudden headaches, fatigue, and irritation. Our air quality testing service assesses your indoor air against a broad range of possible contaminants, including dust, silica, and pollen.
Uncovering Signs Of A Bigger Problem
If you’re uncertain about where these hazardous materials have come from (i.e., your place of business hasn’t suffered a fire or water damage recently), then it could be a sign that your building needs some extra attention.
For example, VOCs easily evaporate into the air over time thanks to age and normal wear and tear. High levels can mean that it’s time to replace whatever is releasing these chemicals, be it vinyl flooring or the office furniture.
Commercial Water Testing
Hazardous materials can be found in your building’s water as well. Water quality testing is essential if your business uses well or groundwater. Contaminated water not only presents health concerns, but it can also cause problems for your plumbing.
Addressing the cause of water contamination will extend the life of your pipes, and your business will save on maintenance costs in the long run.
Hazardous Materials Are Bad For Business
Environmental hazards are harmful to your bottom line. Employees have the right to workplace safety. Neglect this for too long, and your company could land in serious legal trouble.
Environmental hazards also negatively affect your business in smaller ways. For instance, noise pollution (aka excessively loud noises) makes communication difficult, which leads to misunderstandings and a more stressful workplace.
Employees are less productive when they’re fighting mentally and physically against environmental hazards. More sick days means more lost productivity and revenue.
