Residential PCBs

Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) were banned in the United Sates in the late 1970s but they are still found in indoor and outdoor environments. Even if your home was built after the seventies, it is possible that contaminants may be part of the indoor or outdoor environment. The source can be something as innocuous as caulking, […]

PCB at School

Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) found inside schools may be putting your children at risk, and can be found in everything from tape and paint to floor sealant and caulking. PCBs can contribute to thyroid cancer, thyroid disease, rashes, migraines, hair loss, lower IQ and autism. PCBs are recognized as carcinogens. Have your school tested. We do […]

Workplace PCBs

Because Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs) are toxic and persistent and appear in electrical equipment, it is advised to maintain caution. If PCBS are in your office or workplace, they may be in the insulating fluids in electrical equipment like transformers in power plants, industrial plants, telecommunications and utility lines. PCBs have a heavy liquid, oil-like consistency […]

We Test for PCB’s.

We do PCB inspections and assessments. We collect samples for laboratory analysis. We provide reports  prepared by the laboratory and by our Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH), a certified professional who has both the required education and first-hand experience to identify, assess and control hazards like PCBs in the workplace, school or home.
