Common Air Quality & Respiratory Problems
Testing is accomplished using up-to-date industry sampling equipment and nationally accredited laboratories. The laboratories must be approved by the American Industrial Hygiene Association & the Environmental Microbiology Laboratory Accreditation Program in order to be used with our services.
The purpose of air testing is to assess the extent of contamination throughout the building.
The spore trap sampler is a particulate sampling cassette designed for the rapid analysis:
- All types of mold spores, pollen, dust, skin cells and insect fragments in a single test.
- Laboratory results within 24 hours to identify toxic mold.
A petri-dish sampler is used as additional evidence of airborne contaminants.
- Genus identification & viable growth of mold or bacteria in your breathing air.
Topical samples are taken with a sterile swab or tape lift.
- Assist in comparing the same type of mold on surfaces that may be found in the airborne test.
- Topical tests also are taken from salvageable materials to verify the cleaning effectiveness.
Carpet Sweeps & Wall Checks:
- Identify mold growth imbedded in the carpet or inside a wall cavity.
- Test for bacteria levels such as Coliform or E. coli in your drinking water.
Floor or Water Borne Disease Testing:
- Sewage contaminants, fecal streptococcus & Legionella detection.
- The most common allergen is feces debris from dust mites. Other allergens tested include cat, dog, cockroaches & rodents.
Remediation performed in accordance with standards of:
- Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA)
- Institute of Inspection & Cleaning & Restoration Certification. (IICRC)
Regardless of the location of the contamination, precautions are taken to protect the property, occupants and remediation workers. Containment is provided for contaminated environments with appropriate High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filtration to prevent propagation of mold spores or cross contamination of clean areas of the building.
Treatment and removal of mold-damaged materials includes using HEPA vacuuming, aggressive cleaning and non-toxic disinfectant cleaning solutions.
The surrounding environment is cleaned & dried using commercial dehumidifiers & HEPA air scrubbers.
Preventative measures are applied or installed to protect the property from future mold growth:
- Sealed vapor barriers in crawl spaces and cellars.
- Exhaust ventilation systems for basements and crawl spaces.
- Anti-microbial coatings on exposed wood framing.
- Air sealing of interior walls and foundations to exclude outside sources.
- Installation of energy efficient, low noise exhaust fans for bathrooms and kitchens.
