Leading environmental health researchers have discovered that indoor air is often two to five times more polluted than outdoor air, and can be up to 1,000 times more contaminated in extreme cases. Given that many of us spend up to 90% of our time indoors, the health risks associated with indoor air quality far surpass the risks related to outdoor air contamination. Mold is also a serious concern when it comes to indoor air quality. The potential health effects associated with mold exposures include allergic reactions, asthma and other respiratory complaints. There is no practical way to eliminate all mold and mold spores in the indoor environment, but specifying moisture and mold resistant building materials greatly reduces the potential for mold problems. Our lab now provides a faster turn around time at no additional cost. Lab samples are returned in 24-48hrs depending on time of day the mold testing is scheduled. We perform a complete home inspection Air test for Mold, Asbestos, VOCs and Allergens. Mold Testing Residential homes and Commercial Buildings.
Is your workplace a healthy indoor environment? Yes we test commercial building for IAQ issues and perform all LEED air testing requirements.
With the new Washington 2009 energy code on energy conservation, our buildings are tighter than ever. The use of building materials that support massive mold growth, such as drywall, fiberglass insulation and carpet, has increased dramatically. The use of building furnishings made from synthetic chemicals has also increased. This has created a steady increase in the frequency of indoor air quality complaints in both Residential and Commercial buildings.
