The HVAC system should filter the air, heat or cool as necessary, and control relative humidity during the cooling season. Inadequate systems can also allow high moisture levels that foster the growth of mold and mildew. It is recommended that an air quality test for mold be conducted if you suspect an issue.
We perform a thorough visual mold inspection and/or air quality tests of your home. The test results will show 26 of the most common molds found, spore counts and percentages in your air. The test results could make a huge difference in your families health.
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are a large group of carbon-based chemicals that easily evaporate at room temperature. While most people can smell high levels of some VOCs, other VOCs have no odor. Odor does not indicate the level of risk from inhalation of this group of chemicals.
Lead and lead compounds have been used in a wide variety of products found in and around our homes, including paint, ceramics, pipes and plumbing materials, solders, gasoline, batteries, ammunition, and cosmetics.
Lead may enter the environment from these past and current uses.
Asbestos is a component of some building materials, and is known to be a hazardous carcinogen. Home owners, landlords, and contractors must perform testing or site surveys prior to disturbing or demolishing any building materials that may contain asbestos.
Chinese drywall refers to drywall imported from China (from approximately 2001 to 2007) which contains extraneous metals and minerals, such as sulfur, strontium and iron. Under certain environmental conditions (typically warm, humid climates), the drywall will emit sulfur gasses.
ASD Environmental has a method of detecting the presence of smoke and soot through chemical testing and analysis for compounds known as polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH). Polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons are compounds that are generated in a fire and are released as vapors into the smoke.
