Title Southern California Renters Voice Concerns Over Mold, Bugs and Backed Up Sewer Lines
Introduction LA Testing provides analytical services and sampling supplies to identify microbial and chemical contaminants in California’s property rental market.

Garden Grove, CA, September 10th, 2015

There are millions of rental properties across California. While many of them are well maintained, others have fallen into disrepair due to a lack of maintenance. Just last month, San Diego’s Channel 7 broadcasted a report about dozens of tenants in San Diego, Chula Vista and Bonita demanding improvements to their rental units. According to the news story, renters have complained of water damage, mold, bugs and even sewage backing up into bath tubs.
 
“Prospective renters need to be aware of potential indoor environmental and health concerns that they may encounter before signing a lease,” said Michael Chapman, Laboratory Manager at LA Testing’s Garden Grove facility. “Common issues include everything from mold, bacteria and sewage contamination to insects, rodents, lead-based paints, asbestos, radon, vapor intrusion and a host of other issues. Prospective tenants should ask the landlord or property management team about any indoor environmental issues that have occurred or been reported in the rental unit.”
 
LA Testing provides answers for people looking to rent a home or commercial property with comprehensive indoor environmental testing services. These tests can help determine if contaminants that could cause health concerns are present in a property.
 
Through their parent company, they also offer easy-to-use test kits for everything from common allergens and mold to lead, radon, methamphetamine residues, vermiculite, bed bugs and smoke damage. For access and more information about any of these test kits, please visit www.EMSLTestKits.com.
