Indoor Air Quality (Particle) Testing

Our customers trust us for our thorough and affordable IAQ testing, which can yield same-day report results. Indoor air quality can have a big effect on your health. Studies show people spend 65-90% of their time indoors, and indoor air can be two to five times more polluted than outdoor air. The young, elderly, chronically ill, and those with respiratory or cardiovascular disease are often the most impacted by poor indoor air quality.

What is particle testing?

ZeroMold uses IAQ Analytics, which is a patented system designed to report on particulates in the air. This method does not determine mold species, as speciation is not valuable information because there are no standards for acceptable or unacceptable levels of mold(s). Instead, ZeroMold’s technicians will take several particle count readings within your structure, which are then referenced to an International Standards Organization (ISO) standard and in coordination with the World Health Organization (WHO) because particles in the air have actually been given limits.

Then, a comprehensive multi-page report is generated, complete with a chart determining a separate “pass” or “fail” air quality level for each of the reading locations tested by our technician.

The chart examples below are real results from an actual job site: the first chart contains the readings (each is a “fail”) taken before we performed our treatment, and the second chart contains the readings (each is a “pass”) taken after our treatment.

 

 

 

 

 

Now, while our particle testing does not identify the species of mold (explained above), the test results can help our technicians determine whether or not you have a mold problem. The 5-micron sized particles are most relevant to mold; so when these particle count measurements come back elevated, then we know you have a mold problem. Our goal is to identify whether or not you have elevated counts; and if so, we can address this and bring your home back to normal with our fogging treatment. 

Below are just some of the more common culprits, discovered in homes and businesses, that could adversely affect indoor air quality:

  • Mold
  • Asbestos
  • Carbon Monoxide
  • Fiberglass
  • Formaldehyde
  • Mercury
  • Pesticides
  • Radon
  • Tobacco Smoke

(NOTE: ZeroMold does NOT test for/detect any of the above items except mold. Our IAQ testing is particle testing ONLY. Read below to learn more about mold species testing vs. particle testing.)
