Environmental Service Professionals, Inc. Forms Strategic Alliance With Laborers' International Union of North America (LIUNA) to Procure Home Inspections and Bio-Remediation Contracts and Promote Hiring of U.S. Veterans

PALM SPRINGS, CA--(Marketwire - September 21, 2009) - Environmental Service Professionals, Inc. ("ESP") (OTCBB: EVSP), known as an innovator in environmental home inspections, today announced that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Laborers' International Union of North America ("LIUNA") in which LIUNA will assist the Company with procuring full service environmental home inspection contracts that meet the goals and objectives of both LIUNA and the Company. The details of this agreement are contained in Form 8K filed with the SEC on September 15, 2009.

LIUNA is the most progressive, aggressive and fastest-growing union of construction workers, and one of the most diverse and effective unions representing public service employees. Under the agreement, LIUNA will assist the Company in promoting ESP's services and expanding its business model and participate in joint meetings to help ESP procure home inspection and bio-remediation contracts, with a specific focus on employing large numbers of veterans.

ESP, through its wholly owned subsidiary Environmental Safeguard Professionals, Inc. ("Safeguard"), has developed a standardized training, certification and inspection process to address mandated energy certification, construction defects, moisture and other environmental issues in commercial and residential buildings. Leaders in the insurance, mortgage banking and real estate industries have an innate interest in "best in class" annual environmental inspections for improved risk assessment and mitigation.

Rocco Davis, LIUNA Vice President and Pacific Southwest Regional Manager, said, "LIUNA shares ESP's commitment to establish standards for environmentally healthy homes, especially those that are on the market due to foreclosures resulting from today's economic crisis. We also share the goal of providing employment to as many of the nation's veterans as possible. We look forward to helping ESP obtain funding and create a long term mutually beneficial strategic relationship."

Ed Torres, CEO, Environmental Service Professionals, Inc., said, "We are very pleased to form this strategic alliance with LIUNA, whose commitment to quality service, a clean environment and good working conditions, benefits, and family-supporting pay for its members supports our goals at ESP -- especially our goal to be the single national company employing the largest number of U.S. veterans other than the U.S. government."
