More information about Dedicated Environmental
Dedicated Environmental—northeast Ohio’s mold testing specialist—provides Akron and surrounding areas with mold removal and other air quality services.
The average American spends 93 percent of their time indoors. Good air quality is imperative to good health—and lacking in many indoor spaces. Dampness, humidity, mold, pollen, and other environmental issues may impair breathing, trigger allergies, and cause immune dysfunction.
Specializing in mold inspection, testing and remediation, Dedicated Environmental helps northeast Ohio home and business owners improve their indoor environment through the careful assessment and resolution of common air quality problems. Owned and operated by Tim Shaffer—a magna cum laude graduate of Kent State University, with 15 years of experience in mold remediation and meth lab testing—Dedicated Environmental is an REO-approved and EPA-certified lead-safe firm that maintains a high standard of excellence. Clients include homeowners, realtors, renovators, property preservationists, national banks, and insurers.
Our comprehensive mold inspections begin with a visual assessment, followed by humidity testing (mold thrives in a damp environment). Air and surface testing are available upon request, or in the absence of visual evidence of mold. The insidious, far-reaching and sometimes unseen progression of mold growth often warrants air testing, which can provide evidence or allay suspicion of a problem. Samples collected by Dedicated Environmental are expertly analyzed by an AIHA- (American Industrial Hygiene Association) certified lab. The AIHA helps ensure high professional standards in the field of industrial hygiene.
Dedicated Environmental prides itself on fast turn-around times—most lab results are ready within 48 hours. Though mold spore count is our primary focus, our wide-ranging analytical service can also identify and quantify other respiratory irritants, including pollen, skin fragments, pet dander, and fibers. Following inspection and analysis, each client receives a detailed report containing findings and recommendations.
In addition to air quality assessment, mold testing, and remediation, Dedicated Environmental provides methamphetamine surface testing and abatement, identifying the presence or absence of methamphetamine residue, and decontaminating the frequently invisible remnants of meth production, storage, or use. Test results are usually available within one week.
Whether confronted with moisture, mold, meth, or other issues, Dedicated Environmental develops a detailed Scope of Work. Upon client approval, our competent remediation crew begins abatement, most commonly in attics and basements, where moisture, poor airflow, and porous substrate materials such as wood abound, promoting mold growth and harboring contaminants.
Occasionally, such as in the case of vacant properties, an entire building may be affected, necessitating a lengthier remediation process—up to one or more weeks. Dedicated Environmental strives to minimize impact on a building’s occupants, often completing single-room mold or methamphetamine remediation in as little as one day and allowing occupants to remain in their home or business.
