RTK Saves You From Unnecessary Repairs
Because RTK’s business is limited to only testing and consulting – not remediation – our assessment will be accurate and unbiased. If we find a problem, you hire a separate remediation firm. Then, we’ll return to make sure the job was done right, and tell you how to avoid more problems in the future.
We’re based in Stamford, Connecticut, and serve all of New Haven County. RTK Environmental Group leads the field of environmental testing and consulting. Company professionals are certified, licensed, and fully insured.
New Haven County Mold Testing Services
Know the health hazards. Mold spores, when inhaled, can cause serious health issues, including asthma, chronic allergies, headaches, fatigue, skin rashes, throat and eye irritations, wheezing, and many respiratory problems. When mold is disturbed, it can release spores into the air to seed new colonies, causing cross contamination. Mold can be caused by any number of water- or moisture-related issues, including ice dams, roof leaks, basement flooding, burst pipes, poor drainage, and high humidity. Often, mold hides behind walls and ceilings, so unless you test for mold, you may not know that a problem exists.
Toxic mold is more dangerous than ordinary mold because its spores contain poisonous mycotoxins. To be safe and to protect your family, ask or hire a professional to locate and identify the mold in your home or business.
Connecticut Certified Lead Inspection
Book a lead inspection before you remodel, renovate, purchase or lease a home built prior to 1978. Lead poisoning is the #1 preventable childhood disease in the United States. Children can easily ingest household lead because it can be present all around them — in paint chips, tap water, dust, and soil.
Many offices, houses, and apartments built before 1978 (the year lead paint was banned for residential use), so many still contain lead paint on their surfaces. Lead dust can accumulate over time or be disturbed during a renovation. Before you risk exposing your family to lead, find out if a hazard exists.
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, home test kits are not always accurate. So keep you family safe – hire an expert. You should always hire contractors and professionals certified in lead-safe work practices if your home or business has tested positive for lead paint.
CT Asbestos Inspection & Testing
Asbestos is dangerous to human health. Even inhaling a few asbestos fibers can cause lung cancer. Book an asbestos inspection before renovating property built before 1980. Our asbestos inspectors, project designers and management planners are licensed by the Connecticut Department of Public Health, and certified under the federal Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act. We can expertly locate any asbestos in your home and monitor asbestos removal.
Our approach is to:
- Conduct a comprehensive site survey to identify asbestos-containing materials.
- Provide asbestos bulk, air, and soil sampling.
- Provide a detailed report identifying the location, quantity, and condition of asbestos-containing materials.
- Prepare an asbestos prioritization plan in cases when removal of all asbestos-containing materials is not possible.
- Develop an asbestos abatement plan for use by the third-party abatement company you select.
To make sure your asbestos issue has been resolved, we can conduct an asbestos clearance test to see if all asbestos fibers have been cleaned up to meet EPA standards.
