"Green Building" Planning
The next step is remediation beginning with the development of a twofold goal remedial plan. The plan=s first goal is the removal or cleanup of all toxic mold contamination without spreading contaminated materials to clean non‑abatement areas. The second goal is properly repairing the building or building infrastructure (for example the HVAC) to ensure that water damage and moisture buildup does not reoccur preventing mold establishment and growth. EHI personnel would develop the plan and oversee its execution to assure the highest quality standards are employed to meet the goals.
EHI personnel would also serve as consultants and expert witnesses as required. Our highly trained and experienced personnel have the required skills and expertise to address the complex issues associated with toxic mold projects. We are also sensitive to the concerns of management and employees and can integrate these concerns to provide an understandable interpretation of highly technical information.
Our unique professional staff and our twenty‑year experience will assure our clients will be guided through this new area of concern with the same professionalism which has become the hallmark of our company.
