Indoor Air Quality (Particle) Testing
(Ex.) Particles in air BEFORE treatment (Ex.) Particles in air AFTER treatment
Below are just some of the more common culprits, discovered in homes and businesses, that could adversely affect indoor air quality:
- Carbon Monoxide
- Tobacco Smoke
(NOTE: Certified Indoor Air does NOT test for/detect any of the above items except mold. Our IAQ testing is particle testing ONLY. Read below to learn more about mold species testing vs. particle testing.)
Then, a comprehensive multi-page report is generated, complete with a chart determining a separate “pass” or “fail” air quality level for each of the reading locations tested by our technician. The chart examples below are real results from an actual job site: the first chart contains the readings (each is a “fail”) taken before we performed our treatment, and the second chart contains the readings (each is a “pass”) taken after our treatment.
Now, while our particle testing does not identify the species of mold (explained above), the test results can help our technicians determine whether or not you have a mold problem. The 5-micron sized particles are most relevant to mold; so when these particle count measurements come back elevated, then we know you have a mold problem. Our goal is to identify whether or not you have elevated counts; and if so, we can address this and bring your home back to normal with our fogging treatment. (For more on fogging, click on the “MOLD REMEDIATION” menu link at the top of your screen and then click on “The Fogging Process” towards the bottom of the new screen that appears.)
If you’ve scheduled us for an IAQ test at your property, there are some things you need to know in preparation. Read through “IAQ Customer Information” (PDF) by *CLICKING HERE.
