Title Indoor and Outdoor Environmental Exposure Considerations before Leasing a Property
Introduction EMSL Analytical offers environmental testing services, sampling supplies, test kits, monitoring instruments and building inspection tools to identify and mitigate exposure risks to microbial, chemical and radiological hazards.

Cinnaminson, New Jersey, April 10, 2024

Many people choose to lease or rent instead of purchasing a residential, industrial or commercial property in today’s real estate market. For some, leasing provides the flexibility to move into a property when the market is uncertain, when favorable financing options are not available, or for one of many other reasons.

Regardless of the reason, it’s important for both landlords and tenants to do their homework with regards to potential indoor and outdoor environmental concerns at a property being considered for lease. This may include talking with a previous owner or current tenant, researching the building’s prior use(s), and hiring a professional to perform an inspection and environmental testing.

“Landlords and tenants are bound to deal truthfully when negotiating a lease,” said Joe Frasca, Senior Vice President of Marketing at EMSL Analytical, Inc. “So ask about issues dealing with past flooding events, mold, sewage contamination, asbestos, lead, radon, chemicals, vapor intrusion and even pests. Depending on the situation, one might consider hiring a professional to perform something similar to a Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) and possibly a Phase 2 ESA. A Phase 1 ESA involves extensive research of the history of a location, building and neighborhood. The Phase 2 ESA involves testing the structure and grounds for any evidence of contamination. This step in the process can help to either confirm or refute the findings from the initial Phase 1 ESA. During a Phase 2 ESA, the consultant may test the soil, air and groundwater for potential contamination.”

For those concerned about indoor or outdoor environmental exposure risks, EMSL Analytical is here to help. With laboratories located across North America, they offer testing services to identify a diverse range of microbial, chemical and radiological hazards. They also provide sampling supplies, easy-to-use test kits, air monitoring instruments and building inspection tools. EMSL has even sponsored an educational video about environmental exposure considerations before leasing a property that can be seen at: https://youtu.be/wm6TTcc458M
