Christmas Trees Can Harbor Mold Ah, the scent of a piney Christmas tree, filling your home with love, light, good cheer – and mold spores! Yes, trees decay and release mold spores into the air. And right about now, when the tree has been in your home at least a week, is when the sneezing and wheezing begins.
Not all pediatricians test their patients for lead poisoning. In some states it’s mandatory, but in others it’s left to the doctors to determine if it’s necessary. RTK Environmental knows that lead paint poses a danger for everyone, children and adults alike, so be sure to request that your pediatrician performs a simple blood test to check for lead contamination.
