Avoid the Dangers of Mold and Improve IAQ
The humidity of the Hudson Valley, especially in the summer, makes mold growth a common issue for homeowners, landlords and property owners, businesses, and even schools. Energy Conservation Services use our extensive building science experience and training to help improve the health of buildings through Indoor Air Quality Testing and NYS Mold Assessments.
The average person breathes 35 lbs of air per day, much of it indoors. The quality of this indoor air can significantly impact the health and well-being of those breathing it, with signs of poor air quality including fatigue, foggy thinking, headaches, nausea, and sinus & respiratory allergies. To address these issues, the first step is air quality testing, focusing on identifying the presence of potential pollutants like VOCs, Formaldehyde, and mold. We can provide recommendations based on these findings.
What To Expect During an IAQ Testing or Mold Assessment
Using our experience and professional equipment we can identify and test for mold and other contaminants. We also look in common and uncommon areas, to locate possible sources of health issues throughout the property.
Sampling if Necessary
In some cases where mold is suspected but not observed, we take samples of the air using a vacuum pump mold sampling meter. In some cases, we test surfaces or even samples of building materials like wood or drywall. This can then be tested for the type of mold, helping us target any forthcoming recommendations. We provide a detailed report and laboratory analysis and may offer protocols for professional mitigation.
To help prevent future mold growth, we can also test the humidity and overall moisture levels of the air or surfaces of the home or building in question to determine if any immediate action is needed. Moisture-laden wood can rot and promote mold growth, insect damage, and other issues.
Report and Recommendations
Once we have completed your IAQ Testing or mold assessment, you will receive a report outlining our findings, complete with recommendations on how to resolve any confirmed air quality or mold issues.
