Title EMSL Analytical, Inc. Laboratories Ready to Help IAQ, Mold and Environmental Professionals with Mold, Sewage, Lead and Asbestos Testing Services
Introduction EMSL Analytical offers environmental testing services for mold, sewage, lead and asbestos.

San Leandro, CA, February 27, 2017  

In recent weeks, much of California has experienced rainfall allowing water levels to rise throughout the state. California has been in a drought for five years, but the recent rain has helped nearly half of the state to no longer be in a drought warning. More severe weather is expected to arrive in the coming days.

With increased water comes the increased risk of many environmental health issues. If wet building materials are not properly dried and cleaned, mold can begin to grow in as little as 24 to 48 hours. Mold is a known allergen that can trigger asthma attacks in some individuals. Symptoms of mold allergies include headaches, sneezing, runny nose, red eyes and skin rashes. Another potential hazard of increased rainfall and flooding is sewage contamination. Often floodwater contains raw sewage that can be left behind after water has receded.

“Often times with water-damaged properties, the potential for exposure to asbestos or lead exists,” said Jason Dobranic, Ph.D., Vice President of Microbiology and Life Sciences at EMSL Analytical, Inc. “Homes and other buildings built before the 1970’s included both lead-based paints and asbestos-containing materials such as floor tiles or insulation. Knowing if these types of hazards are present is important before any type of cleanup effort begins. EMSL Analytical, Inc. has four labs within its network throughout California that are able to help professionals identify environmental issues related to asbestos, lead, mold or sewage.”
