“There is a reason Chris has all 5 star reviews. Not only is he great at what he does when it comes to inspections but he’s also a great person. Very knowledgeable, friendly, and a great communicator”

Hector C.

Mailman Environmental responded to our call right away and was out very quickly to test. Chris is very friendly, enthusiastic and got the job done. We got the test results for asbestos back quickly. We also like supporting local businesses here in Santa Clarita. We highly recommend this company.

Kent & Jennifer E.

I am a water damage consultant who routinely has to recommend testing companies for asbestos, lead and mold. People that I refer are a direct reflection on my business. Chris Chapleau is professional, thorough, clean, AND easygoing, which is a really important quality because people who need testing services are typically experiencing high stress levels due to environmental conditions. He consistently turns around test results in a short time and provides an easy to read report which documents the situation. Chris is also easy to communicate with and delivers what he promises!
