Indoor Air Quality Evaluations
Chemicals, Mold, Volatile Organic Compounds
Our company has extensive experience with investigations related to general and specific indoor air quality in industrial, manufacturing, and non-industrial environments such as business offices, hospitals and schools. Air sampling and analysis of non-industrial environments make up the majority of our efforts in determining if an air quality problem does exist.
Our approach is to listen to the concerns of building occupants (through a contact point), and then interview facilities and maintenance personnel prior to assessing the physical environment to gain the most complete understanding of the possible and most probable sources of air contaminants causing the concerns of the occupants.
With our best understanding of the work environment we will try to identify the environmental conditions causing the symptoms of the occupants by documenting of the levels of air contaminants within the environment and based on the analytical results and observations develop a plan address the air quality within the environment. The information presented within the plan will be presented in a factual, understandable format, with clear recommendations of actions for the building managers or owners.
Common types of air sampling may include:
- Aldehyde vapor scans (formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, acrolein, and propionaldehyde)
- Volatile organic compound (VOC) scans
- Acidic gas scans
- Sulfur dioxide (SO2)
- Oxides of nitrogen (NOX)
- Carbon monoxide (CO)
- Carbon dioxide (CO2)
- Bioaerosols including mold, fungi and bacteria in air
