Radon Mitigation Services
Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that is a byproduct of radium. It is made by the earth naturally and comes up from deep below the part of the planet that we live on. Because radon is radioactive, it can cause numerous health issues. Because radon is also colorless and odorless, you might not even realize you’re living with it until your health begins to decline, which usually happens over time rather than suddenly. Some of the most common symptoms of radon gas exposure include:
✷ Persistent, painful coughing
✷ Coughing up blood
✷ Shortness of breath
✷ Chest pain
✷ Frequent cardiovascular infections like bronchitis or pneumonia
✷ And more
If you feel like you might have been exposed to radon gas, be sure to see a doctor of licensed medical professional as quickly as possible. Also be sure to contact your local radon mitigation company at Seitz Environmental. Our trained professionals will be able to safely remove the harmful gas from your home, building, or office.

Asbestos Removal Services
Asbestos is actually a naturally occurring substance. There are six silicate minerals that can be used to make asbestos, which is a heat-resistant fibrous material that was used in many homes and buildings as insulation. The substance’s natural fire-resistant properties made it an extremely popular building material when it was first introduced. Asbestos could also be woven into fabrics and used in other applications other than insulation. The problem with asbestos insulation and materials is that the substance keeps breaking down into smaller and smaller particles, which can eventually be small enough to be inhaled by animals and humans. These particles can enter the lungs and eventually cause irreparable damage and numerous health problems such as:
✷ Lung cancer
✷ Chest pain
✷ Finger clubbing (enlarged fingertips)
✷ Nail deformities
✷ And more
The longer you breath in asbestos particles the more likely it is that a major health issue will occur. If you suspect that you or a loved one has been exposed to asbestos, be sure to see a doctor as quickly as possible. If you believe that your home, building, or office might contain asbestos in some form, then be sure to schedule your asbestos inspection from the best asbestos removal company at Seitz Environmental today.

Mold Remediation Services
Mold is an important part of our world. It’s an important decomposer that breaks down unwanted food and plant material. Mold is necessary to help keep the natural world in balance. While we may need mold in other places, it can become problematic when we find mold in our homes or offices. Mold reproduces by sending out spores, which are about the same size as pollen particles. These spores are carried by the wind and can go just about anywhere. They pose a big problem when they’re inhaled by humans and pets as they can cause certain health problems when they’re inhaled for too long.
While household cleaners can remove the mold that you see, that isn’t always the root of the problem. If you have a problem with mold in your home or business, then it’s time to get a mold inspection from the best mold removal company at Seitz Environmental. Contact us to schedule your inspection today, or learn more about our mold remediation services.
