Lead Based Paint Management
Building Surveys and Testing
CES helps building owners and managers determine if lead-based paint is present in their buildings prior to renovation or construction activities that disturb or suspect lead-based paint. To reduce the cost of paint testing, CES uses a RMD LPA-1 X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrum Analyzer. Following the testing, CES will provide a comprehensive report of finding(s) that includes: test results, color, substrate, and location of each paint tested.
Development of Plans and Specifications
When a construction project disturbs lead-based paint; CES will work with the building owners and manager to determine the proper procedures to be implemented in order to protect people at the site. This will ensure that the work area is properly cleaned following lead paint disturbance or removal activities. Plans and specifications prepared by CES will provide lead-based paint abatement contractors with a well-defined scope of work and procedures to ensure the project is properly performed in accordance with applicable CDPH, CAL-OSHA, HUD and EPA regulations.
Project Bidding Assistance
Our goal on every project is to obtain highly competitive bids from quality abatement contractors if requested. Once specifications are prepared, as an added value, CES will assist in the bidding process. Once bids are received, CES will review each bid and assist with contractor selection.
Here at Condol’s Environmental Services we offer testing for Asbestos-containing building materials in both residential and commercial buildings.
When properly cared for, most building materials containing asbestos do not normally release asbestos dust. Problems begin to occur when the material is disturbed, gets older, or is damaged without taking the proper precautions.
Not sure if your home or place of business has asbestos in the building materials? There is only one way to find out . . . have your building inspected by Condol’s Environmental Services. The inspection will tell you if you have asbestos, and if so, where is it located, has it been properly cared for, if there are problems how to handle them, and preventive steps you can take to make sure that there will not be any problems in the future.

Industrial Hygiene Consulting
Traditional Industrial Hygiene Consulting:
In California many occupations present hazards to their workers. These hazards often come in the form of chemicals, noise, and many others. Over time these can lead to physical injury or prolonged health problems. In California, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulates the workplace in order to make sure that employees have safe working standards, and employers are in compliance with exposure to hazardous condition.
As an employer, you owe a duty to the people who work for you to make sure their working conditions are safe. The best way to do that is to make sure you are in compliance with Cal/OSHA standards.
Condol’s Environmental Services can evaluate your work environment to make sure that it is safe for your employees. All of our industrial hygienists are certified by the American Board of Industrial Hygiene (CIH).
