Indoor Air Quality Testing
Always use a qualified, accredited and insured Third-Party Indoor Environmental Professional (IEP) when testing for mold in your home or business. Do not use a mold removal or mold remediation contractor to test for mold.
Testing for Mold: When Should the Process Begin?
- After water damage has occurred, regardless of whether or not the water damage was properly dried - you should receive a Post-Remediation Verification (PRV) or Clearance Letter.
- Prior to selling your property.
- Occupants are experiencing Allergies and or negative health effects.
- Prior to purchasing a property.
- Allergy sufferers occupy the property.
- Homes built on a crawlspace can have moisture issues and are subject to humid ambient air. This can cause mold to grow inside the crawlspace and negatively impact the quality of the breathable air inside the property.
- The purpose of mold tests and indoor air-quality testing is to identify the areas affected by mold and to measure the degree of infestation on the surface and within the structure.

Is VOC Testing a Good Idea?Contained in many of today's consumer goods, the VOCs we’re exposed to indoors are basically a wide range of chemicals that evaporate rapidly at room temperature, releasing vapors and gases into the air we breathe. Volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, are the one of the biggest reasons property owners these days feel the need to test for indoor air pollution.
Since VOCs are found in everything from carpets and furniture to paint and cleaning products, it’s a smart idea to include VOC testing as part of your commercial or home air quality testing. We can help!
When you and your building’s residents are being exposed to high levels of VOCs, it can lead to chronic health problems like sore throats, headaches, nausea, and even cancer. Keep your air quality control in check by opting for VOC testing as part of your comprehensive indoor air quality test.
A scientific article recently published in the International Journal of Indoor Evnironment and Health further explains the dangers of VOCs. The article can be found here: Occupational Exposure and Health Risks of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) of Hotel Housekeepers.
