Exposing the Sources of Your Illness
Environmental contaminants are everywhere and can originate from the most inconspicuous sources. Often health issues arise from the combination of elements in a particular environment. Our complete health assessment will help pinpoint problems or potential issues and provide a comprehensive solution.
Remote Assessments for Remote Locations
Virtual Wellness Assessments
What if you need to test a space somewhere far from an AirWell location? We offer a remote inspection service that is almost as accurate and thorough as if we were there in person.
Is my house making me sick?
Quite possibly! Environmentally Acquired Illness (EAI) is both real and common. The most common environmentally related issue is mold contamination, but VOCs within the residence, as well as particulate matter, EMFs, radon, and even carbon monoxide, are possible. But rest assured, we are here to help determine if your residence is safe.
How do I know if I have asbestos in my home?
We can come out and perform an inspection, collecting samples of any suspect materials.
What testing should be requested when buying a home?
The answer to this question depends on your objectives and budget. Often the sellers of a home will do the absolute minimum mold testing to prevent the buyer from backing out of the purchase. Although this is the cheapest option, it is not in the best interest of the new residents of the home. The best option to determine if environmental conditions exist that could impact the health of a resident is to have an Indoor Air Quality expert perform an inspection of the property, with emphasis placed on mold, VOCs, and particulate matter. If renovations are to be performed, consider inspections for the presence of asbestos and lead paint.
Finally, if budget only allows for a DIY mold test, consider performing mold testing through ImmunoLytics.
What testing is required prior to renovating, remodeling, or remediating?
- If your home was built prior to 1978, a lead paint inspection should be performed in any area that is to be disturbed (e.g. – remodel, window replacement, painting preparation, etc.).
- If your home was built prior to 1980, an asbestos inspection should be performed in any area that is to be disturbed (e.g. – remodel, window replacement, painting preparation, etc.).
- If any visible mold is found during renovation, remodeling, or remediating, all activities should stop and the mold should be contained to prevent contaminating other areas of the residence. An inspection of the area may be necessary to develop the appropriate remediation plan.
How do I know if I have a mold problem and where it is located?
The best route to determining if you have elevated mold levels within your home is to have an onsite mold inspector perform a visual inspection, an InfraRed inspection for active water leaks, and collect samples to determine the current mold levels.
If budget does not allow the hiring of a Certified Mold Inspector (CMI), the next best alternative is conducting DIY mold plate testing through ImmunoLytics in as many areas of the home as possible.
