ENVIRONMENTAL SERVICES

Elite Environmental Services offers a full array of environmental services, including environmental investigations for due diligence/regulatory compliance; hazardous materials services; indoor air quality assessments and mold assessments. A description of these capabilities is provided below.

Phase I ESA

Determining environmental conditions and identification of potential contamination on a piece of land is one of the most important steps in a real estate transaction.

In today’s busy real estate market, businesses and lending institutions are often requiring a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) to be conducted prior to any transactions of land or building purchases, new development and bank loans. Conducting an ESA limits the potential for the owner or lender of the property from being named as a potentially responsible party.

Elite Environmental Services performs all Phase I ESA’s in conformance with the scope and limitations of the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standard E-1527-05. The purpose for conducting an ESA is to assess any current or historical land use practices and to identify the presence of any hazardous substances or petroleum products on or adjacent to the property of interest.

Elite Environmental Services includes the following information in all Phase I ESA reports.

  1. Historical review of property
  2. Government environmental database review
  3. Inspection of property and surrounding areas
  4. Interviews with owners and occupants
  5. Site plan of the property
  6. Digital photographs
  7. Aerial photographs
  8. Conclusions regarding potential liabilities
  9. Recommendations.

Phase II ESA

The Phase II Environmental Site Assessment evaluates potential sources that may be contaminated, such as air quality, soil and water. Samples are collected from the above-mentioned sources and are analyzed for particular constituents of concern by EPA approved laboratories.

Asbestos Surveys

Elite Environmental Services specializes in providing a comprehensive asbestos consultancy service tailored to the client’s individual requirements while following applicable OSHA and EPA regulations. Elite Environmental Services maintains a staff of EPA registered building inspectors to manage and perform asbestos surveys and abatement projects.

When you are considering renovation or demolition:

  • Elite Environmental Services will survey the building to identify existing asbestos materials followed with a detailed report of findings;
  • Develop site specific abatement design
  • Collect bids from reputable contractors and
  • Project oversight
  • Conduct exit evaluation

Molds

Elite Environmental Services routinely conduct site specific indoor air quality investigations specific to molds in both residential and commercial environments adhering to a number of government authorities including the United States EPA, California Department of Health Services and New York City Department of Health.

Our Surveys Include:

  • Detailed assessment of the facility utilizing state of the art equipment;
  • Collection of surface and air samples to aid in identifying the genus makeup and count;
  • A detailed report of our findings and recommendations;
  • Develop a detailed remediation specification to aid the remediation and
  • Contractor appointment 
  • Project oversight

INDOOR AIR QUALITY

Elite Environmental Services specializes in site specific indoor air quality investigations in both residential and commercial environments. Typical indoor air quality investigations have variable components and are usually driven by cost and client objectives and may include the following:

  • Biological / Mold Contamination
  • Ventilation (HVAC Symptoms)
  • Asbestos Inspection
  • Radon Testing
  • Noise Survey
  • Ozone Testing
  • Particulate/Chemical Monitoring
  • Occupant interviews


Our team have decades of experience in identifying and correcting air quality issues; we are the solution. Our IAQ surveys are designed to identify contaminants resulting from design or equipment failure, catastrophe (fire, flood, etc.) new construction and renovation.

Our reports are generated with conclusions drawn from data collected and recommendations are made to either reduce the impact of the stressor or mitigate it altogether.

Lead-Based Paint

Elite Environmental Services is staffed with certified Washington State Department of Commerce Certified Lead (Pb) Inspectors, Risk Assessors trained and experienced in inspections, assessment and monitoring of lead. Elite Environmental Services LBP Surveys are typically performed using a nonintrusive X-Ray Fluorescence Analyzer or the collection of paint chip samples.

Paint or other coatings with levels above the established threshold of lead concentrations equal to or greater than 1.0 milligram per square centimeter (mg/cm²) or 0.5% lead by weight, as defined by Title X of the 1992 Housing and Community Development Act are considered lead-based.

Our lead-based paint services include:

  • Building surveys and reports;
  • Development of remediation plans;
  • Project bidding assistance and
  • Remedial oversite
  • Conduct exit evaluation


Our comprehensive LBP Inspection reports identify lead-based painted surfaces with information about the location and condition of the paint. A lead paint inspection is appropriate for property owners who need to know where lead-based paint is located, such as in the following situations:

  • People considering renovation, remodeling or demolition work that would disturb painted surfaces and may generate lead dust hazards unless proper precautions are followed;
  • Rental property owners seeking exemption from the federal lead disclosure requirements by demonstrating that a specific property does not contain lead-based paint;
  • Rental property owners who might need or desire documentation about lead based paint for insurance/financing or
  • Those facing a state or local requirement to abate all lead-based paint.
