Efficiently Undertaking Environmental Searches

 Environmental searches are essential for a multitude of reasons. One reason includes your health being affected if your property sits on contaminated land. Here at ISA Yorkshire Ltd, we carry out both commercial and residential environmental searches. For additional information on why these searches are important, please get in touch.

Why Are Environmental Searches Important?

As many of these old industries no longer exist or have been relocated, there may be little evidence to show where they once were. But their by-products may still be a health hazard for property owners from contamination of the ground which a home sits on. For example, toxic chemicals such as lead, arsenic, mercury, and other heavy metals will remain in the ground and be a potential danger to occupiers, especially children. Another potential danger to a property is the existence of an old landfill site. As the climate is changing, there is also the risk of flooding and other environmental issues. Even when a home has not been built directly on an old industrial site, contamination from the nearby land and pollution from rivers and watercourses can spread into the nearby ground, affecting properties. Contaminated water flowing from abandoned mine workings is a continuing problem.
