I found out through local media (voluntary participation in test procedures from a federal office). Then we participated in a test procedure and I ordered measuring devices through the KIT in Karlsruhe. Our measured values were above the limits. Then it became difficult to find someone who could “solve the problem”; finally I came across the company ISTANA at that time and the problem was solved successfully and quickly. Previously, I had another company on site who had recommended having the floor sealed. This cost would have been higher than ISTANA’s remediation and there would have been question marks about the success.
Essentially all rooms (unused and used, more or less contaminated) in the basement, less so in the living rooms. However, since we use the basement as a study and guest room, and the children also have play utensils stored there, we had to address the problem.
Yes definitely. That’s probably why many people don’t measure it. As well as the quick availability of measuring devices. But that’s not an option for me, because that would mean having to say later, “if I had known, then….” I prefer to know the problem and then solve it. Anyway, there is also the possibility to get a good feeling by the measurement, if all measured values are ok. Maybe it’s a personal attitude… It’s like driving through a red light with your eyes closed, just because your eyes were closed, doesn’t mean everything is ok.
“1”, for sure. Mr. Wabra is a very nice person, who makes you feel being in the right hands. We are also on the same wavelength personally, which made it even easier.
Yes, it’s a very good feeling to know that we’ve got the complex problem under control, and we definitely would do it again.
