Air Quality Experts
At Air Quality Solution Services, we understand the importance of clean air for our health and well-being. That’s why we provide a range of services designed to help individuals, businesses, and communities improve air quality in their respective environments.
This involves testing the air, surfaces, and/or materials for the presence of mold.
Mold can cause various health issues, including respiratory problems, allergies, and infections.
There are several different methods of sampling for mold, including air sampling, surface sampling, and bulk sampling.
Once samples have been collected, they need to be analyzed in a laboratory to determine the presence and concentration of mold spores.
Interpretation of Results
It’s important to interpret the results in the context of the specific situation and the potential health risks to occupants of the building.
Air Quality Assessment
This is a comprehensive evaluation of the air quality in a particular space. It involves analyzing the air for various pollutants such as:
VOCs (volatile organic compounds)
The sampling method used will depend on the specific pollutants being measured, as well as the size and layout of the area being assessed. Common sampling methods include grab sampling and continuous monitoring.
Analysis & Interpretation of Results
Interpretation of results will depend on a number of factors, including the type and concentration of pollutants, the exposure standards or guidelines that apply, and the potential health effects of exposure.
Identification of sources and causes of pollution
This could include factors such as outdoor air pollution sources, indoor sources like cleaning products or building materials, or ventilation or air filtration systems that are not functioning properly.
HVAC Unit & Ductwork Assessment
This assessment focuses on the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, as well as the ductwork. It involves checking the condition and efficiency of the HVAC system, identifying any leaks or other issues, and making recommendations for improvements. The assessment can help the following:
Improve energy efficiency
Reduce operating costs
Improve indoor air quality
Inspection of HVAC unit
An HVAC unit inspection involves evaluating the overall condition and performance of the heating and cooling equipment, including the furnace or boiler, air conditioning unit, and ventilation components.
Evaluation of ductwork
Ductwork evaluation involves examining the condition and performance of the network of ducts that deliver heated or cooled air throughout the building.
Analysis of energy usage
This can involve reviewing energy bills and usage data to identify opportunities for improvement, such as upgrading to more efficient equipment, repairing leaks, or improving insulation.
Infrared (Thermal Imaging) & Moisture Assessment
This assessment uses thermal imaging technology to identify areas of moisture or temperature variations in a space. Moisture can lead to mold growth and other issues, while temperature variations can indicate air leaks or insulation problems. The assessment can help identify and address these issues before they become serious problems. In addition to detecting areas of moisture, a moisture assessment can also help identify potential sources of moisture such as:
Use of thermal imaging cameras
Thermal imaging cameras use infrared technology to detect temperature differences in a building’s structure, which can help identify areas of moisture or water intrusion.
Moisture meter readings
Moisture meters are another tool used in moisture assessments, and they can provide more precise measurements of moisture levels in building materials such as drywall, insulation, and wood.
Identification of potential sources of moisture
Addressing the root cause of moisture problems is essential for preventing further damage and ensuring the long-term health of the building.
