We are certified to conduct two indoor air quality tests that anyone purchasing a home should consider. For general air quality analysis, we can do a Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) and Mold Volatile Organic Compound (MVOC) air quality test. The collection period is approximately two hours, so this test should be done within the context of a full home inspection. (Or if done as a standalone service, additional costs will be incurred).
The second indoor air quality test we can conduct is specific for formaldehyde. Formaldehyde in high concentrations creates many health problems and is a known carcinogen. In the wake of the news of laminate flooring from China having dangerously high formaldehyde levels, we recommend this test for anyone purchasing a home with laminate flooring and for those selling a home with laminate flooring who want to eliminate the concern for future buyers. This test takes 20-30 minutes and can be conducted during a home inspection or as a standalone service.
