Farmer Environmental Group recently conducted a Phase I ESA, Lead-Based Paint Inspection, Asbestos Inspection for an apartment community in Boulder, CO for ongoing maintenance of the building and for future renovation projects. The purpose for the Phase I ESA was to identify recognized environmental conditions on upwards of 13 acres. Farmer inspected 27 individual residence for Asbestos Containing Building Materials and Lead-Based Paint.
Farmer Environmental Group, LLC (Farmer) inspected a residence scheduled for demolition located in Cibolo, Texas for asbestos-containing building materials & Lead-Based Paint.
The purpose of the inspection was determine locations and quantities of asbestos-containing products on site, determine the impact these materials will have on scheduled demolition activities, and so that the client obtains the necessary building permit with the City of Cibolo.
In order to ensure a safe and healthy work environment, federal, state and local regulations require that lead-based paint be identified and controlled. This inspection was used to determine only if exposed painted surfaces currently contain lead-based paint. Paint samples suspected to contain lead were analyzed from interior and exterior surfaces of the subject Site.
Farmer conducted mold air sampling and a visual inspection for suspect microbial growth within the residence.
Air samples were collected to determine mold spore concentrations. The air samples were collected on spore trap air filters. These air filters are considered to be a slit impaction sampling method, which collects both viable and non-viable mold spores, as well as biological and non-biological particles. Slit impaction sampling is capable of simultaneously determining the presence and concentration of the most common bioaerosols, and providing the simultaneous analysis of other potential contaminants including fibers, particulates, pollen, insect parts (allergen) and skin cells (allergen). The samples were collected for a five (5) minute period at a flow rate of fifteen (15) liters per minute (lpm).
