Ten Key Services
The on-site inspection includes measuring moisture levels of the walls, ceilings, wood structural members, and floors to determine if elevated conditions exist that will support mold and bacterial growth. An inspection for fungal appearing growth is performed in all accessible areas including crawlspaces and attics. Mold testing is done to identify any pathogenic molds present. From this a report is written that will identify areas of contamination, interpret the mold testing results, and provide a thorough scope of work to remove the mold and prevent a regrowth. Post testing and a Certificate of Completion is provided.
To ensure the safety of individuals in affected buildings, AIAQS offers testing and identification of the fungal load inside water damaged buildings as part of a broad IAQ assessment where there is a concern about identified negative health symptoms. By identifying the presence of the opportunistic fungi and mycotoxins, the results can be shared with qualified allergists or physicians for further testing through blood serum or urine analysis. This testing can assist in proper diagnosis and treatment of the toxic effects. During post mold remediation testing to ensure a successful mold reversal has been performed, this step, combined with other air or surface mold testing, is the only way in determining if a building is safe to continue to be inhabited.
Identifying any contaminants and conditions that do not support the best health and safety for occupants such as VOC/s, allergens, respirable dust/chemical levels, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, oxygen, relative humidity, bioaerosols, bacteria, endotoxins, mycotoxins, viruses, molds, formaldehyde, etc. This requires multiple testing and air monitoring protocols. From these results an IAQ profile is developed that will identify areas that need correction. A certified plan to achieve this result is provided.
The objective of a Commercial or Residential HVAC Inspection is to physically assess the cleanliness of the HVAC System, which is defined by the presence of dirt, obstructions, excess moisture, and microbial contamination that might affect the system operation and overall Indoor Air quality (IAQ) of the building. This service also includes the measurement of airborne dust and submicron size particle discharge of the conditioned air supply to determine the effectiveness of the inline filter. Other airborne contaminants being passed through the system into the occupied spaces are also measured and compared to the indoor levels to determine the likely impact on the overall IAQ.
The real-world testing of the true effectiveness of any air or surface purification or sanitation device is performed on site. This is a very comprehensive and thorough process that will identify the efficacy of your chosen devices. A report will be written and an IAQ Profile will be developed that shows deficiencies and identifies where improvements are needed and what needs to be corrected. A step-by-step plan is provided to achieve those results.
Providing a cost-effective plan to safely reoccupy any building utilizing the latest COVID research, Pandemic Preparedness Plans from ASHRAE, the CDC, and other current infectious disease studies. Utilizing the existing HVAC and providing improved ventilation and air filtering is done before any other supplemental steps or devices are recommended.
Keith Roe, PA. Asbestos Inspector #042077 will provide a low-cost inspection of a Residence, Commercial Building, or Healthcare facility for the presence of ACM (Asbestos Containing Materials). From these results an interpretation of the Lab report will be provided as well as an outline for proper abatement/removal of the asbestos materials.
Abatement Project Management Services are also available.
Upon completion of the project a post abatement inspection and air test will be performed and a final Certificate of Completion will be provided for your records.
By providing a qualitative (individual identification of the contaminants) and quantitative (a total airborne concentration) analysis of the primary airborne contaminants, this service will utilize innovative but industry recognized testing protocols to define accurate results. A comprehensive evaluation of the results will be provided as pertains to existing IAQ Standards and Guidelines, potential health impact issues and emerging State regulations. The composite results will be analyzed, and a site-specific mitigation plan will be developed as it pertains to modifications to the existing environment for improved and more acceptable IAQ throughout the building.
SBS and BRI can result in a sudden headache, nausea, dry cough, itchy skin, eye, nose or throat irritations, dizziness, fatigue, body aches, or difficulty in concentration. Additionally, an unpleasant odor or taste can appear when time is spent inside a particular building or space. They disappear relatively soon after a person leaves the enclosed space or building. AIAQS offers testing to combat this issue and will develop a comprehensive plan to restore the building indoor environment will be provided and discussed with the building’s ownership or management.
Advanced IAQ Solutions Inc performs Inspections and testing to discover the presence of and airborne concentration and exposure level to some of the most commonly found hazardous, misused, or disease-causing substances inside a functioning Residential, Commercial or Healthcare facility.
This requires a comprehensive inspection and understanding of the environment that exists and the use and function of the building both past and present. The process starts with a site visit and interview with a key person(s) who are familiar with the use and function of the building as well as the record of occupant health issues or concerns being expressed.
