Our Air Quality Assessment is a measure of particulates, carbon dioxide, and volatile organic compounds in the air. Using a calibrated sensor, outdoor measures are taken then compared with indoor measurements in multiple areas of the home. I also take into account the floor plan, HVAC system(s), conditions in and around the home, the weather and other factors in order to provide you with the best assessment possible.
This service a very fast, cost effective way to screen for the potential for mold. We also recommend it to narrow down the area(s) of the home where any mold growth is most probable.
Particulates: Active mold growth releases massive quantities of airborne mold spores which affect particulate counts of a certain size range. If the indoor particulate counts of a certain size range count is higher. We can narrow the suspected area(s) down to the room(s) and, sometimes, within a few yards. If the particulate counts of a certain size range, a full air mold test should be considered.
Carbon Dioxide: The “tightness” of houses being built today is causing indoor carbon dioxide, separate from carbon monoxide, can also increase. High levels of carbon dioxide can also be found in homes where a garage isn’t properly ventilated. Elevated levels of CO2 can cause dizziness, nausea, loss of consciousness, and even death.
