Frequently Asked Questions
What Are Hazardous Waste Examples?
Hazardous waste products are deeply embedded into our daily lives. For example, a burnt-out light bulb is a hazardous waste risk, as are batteries. If the battery is for a car, the risk of hazardous waste is considerably higher. Paint contains hazardous waste, as does antifreeze and drain cleaning fluid. Simply throwing hazardous waste into the trash or down the drain carries risks for the entire community. Attempts to burn hazardous waste can have a bad outcome. A professional will be trained in how to dispose of your hazardous waste safely and in compliance with federal, state, and local regulations.
How Much Mold Exposure Is Harmful?
The less exposure you have, the healthier you’ll be. Mold releases spores into the air, and those spores can easily spread through the house. Even mold that’s in the basement can get into an HVAC system, where it gains access to every room with a vent. The harm that comes from mold starts with coughing, sneezing, and nasal congestion. In a worst-case scenario, it can cause severe respiratory problems. Young children, elderly people, and those with pre-existing conditions are particularly vulnerable. The sooner mold removal is professionally completed, the safer everyone will be.
How Bad Is Water Damage to a House?
Water damage can be very serious, not only to the house, but to those that live there. A flooded area that has not been properly restored can have the long-term effect of damaging the structural quality of the home. Water damage not thoroughly cleaned up can lead to mold and mildew buildups, which harm both the house and the quality of the air. Water damage can leave bacteria behind that further damages the air. It’s important that any areas that have been flooded be dealt with immediately and professionally.
