The MEC staff has over 50 years of combined experience of supplying support to different types of clients such as residential, commercial, industrial, healthcare, real estate, educational, and governmental agencies. Comprehensive services provided by MEC are as follows:
Prior to any demolition or renovation in a commercial or public building, government regulations state that an asbestos survey must be completed. MEC can offer either comprehensive or limited asbestos building inspections.
Our inspections have been developed with the client in mind. Whether commercial, industrial, or residential, our licensed inspectors perform the sampling and create a user-friendly report to identify whether the materials tested positive or negative for asbestos containing materials (ACM).
All samples are analyzed by a licensed analyst from an independent third party laboratory which is accredited by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) and takes part in the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP).
All non-destructive, lead-based paint building inspections are completed by X-Ray Fluorescent (XRF) technology or paint chip sampling. All inspections are performed by our state-licensed lead inspectors/rish assessors. Inspections can be performing on a limited or comprehensive basis. Final Reports identify the specific areas tested and document the measurement readings of any identified lead-based paint.
Midwest Environmental Consulting Services can conduct a Site Evaluation/ Assessment and perform either viable or non-viable Mold Sampling if there is a concern that a mold issue exists. All mold samples are delivered to an independent American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) Accredited laboratory for analysis. A formal report is then generated to specify the testing areas to define the results and offer solutions for resolving Indoor Air Quality that may have been discovered.
Prior to purchasing or selling property or building, many involved parties and financial institutions require environmental assessments be performed to identify issues that could significantly affect property value. Through onsite evaluations and researching regulatory and historical information, our highly-trained staff will identify recognized environmental conditions (REC), and offer recommendations to assist your real estate ventures.

MEC offers a cost-effective approach to educating employees regarding the dangers or asbestos. Out onsite training meets Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) rules and regulations and Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) requirements and is tailored to fit your needs. After the training is given by our staff, a brief test is given to the attendees and a certificate is provided upon completion of the training.
