Individuals who are sensitive to mold will experience skin irritation and nasal stuffiness, among others. Many types of molds can trigger an asthma flare-up as well. That is why it's important to conduct mold inspection for your property. Asbestosis (a chronic, non-cancerous respiratory disease) occurs when individuals inhale asbestos fibers. Although the disease is not serious, it may cause cardiac failure in its advanced stages. At Iris Environmental Laboratories, we provide professional asbestos and mold inspection services in Bergen County and the surrounding areas.
Located in New Jersey, Bergen County is the most populous county in the state with a population of over 905,000 residents. The county is bordered by Passaic County, Essex County, Hudson County; and within New York, by the Hudson River, Westchester County, The Bronx, Manhattan, and Rockland County. Key icons that define Bergen County include the malls of Paramus, The Palisades, George Washington Bridge, deep-fried hotdogs, the Bergen County Courthouse, the Blue Laws, and the Meadowlands Sports Complex.
Before 1980, asbestos-containing materials were used because of their tensile strength, as well as resistance to fire, electricity and heat. As a result, asbestos materials are found in small businesses, retirement communities, nursing homes, daycare facilities, apartment buildings, commercial properties, and other residential properties. Floor tiles, ceilings, electrical conduit, and insulation are common areas where said fibers are present as well. It is important to note that long-term exposure to asbestos may increase one's risk of developing asbestosis, mesothelioma, and lung cancer. That is why residential and commercial asbestos tests need to be conducted before any demolition, remodeling, or renovation projects are carried out.
