What is tested?

The IAQ testing will test your indoor air for the following most common contaminants that cause illnesses according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and OSHA.  Many of the following will be grouped together on the final report.

  1. Mold Spores Elevation.  Air testing to see if elevated mold spore levels could be causing health symptoms.
  2. PM10Coarse dust particles. Particles between 2.5 and 10 micrometers in diameter are referred to as “coarse.” Sources of coarse particles include mold spores, pollen, dust mites, insect parts,crushing or grinding operations, and dust stirred up by vehicles traveling on roads.
  3. PM2.5Fine particles (PM2.5). Particles less than 2.5 micrometers in diameter are called “fine” particles. These particles are so small they can be detected only with an electron microscope. Sources of fine particles include all types of combustion, including motor vehicles, power plants, residential wood burning, forest fires, agricultural burning, and some industrial processes.
  4. Ozone

Do inspectors need to be licensed?

Yes.  Indoor air quality inspector's need to be a licensed mold inspector, licensed lead inspector and a licensed asbestos inspector.

What happens during the testing?

Before testing, you should not air out the house or cleanup.  We need the home to be in a normal condition. 

We get instant results.  Some inspectors give results 24 hours later.  This simply doesn't work.  You need real time results so that you can find sources of contamination.

Once we've tested the air, we will give you preliminary verbal report.  However, we have to take the information back to the office and download the information.  A final report will be emailed to you, usually within 48 hours.

I'm the only one that seems to have problems.  Am I going crazy?

No.  The vast majority of time, only one individual feels signs of illness.  The reason is, that one person is more sensitive to a particular contaminant, where others are sensitive to other contaminants.  It just so happens that the contaminant you're sensitive too is the same one that is in your building.

I've been to the doctor, but they don't know what the problem is.  Can you still help?

Many general physicians don't specialize in environmental causes, but once they understand what the contaminant is, they can be better equipped to help out.  There also are doctors that do have this specialization of environmental medicine that you may want to see.
