What Are VOCs?
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) – Compounds that evaporate from housekeeping, maintenance, and building products made with organic chemicals. These compounds are released from product that are being used and are in storage. In sufficient quantities, VOCs can cause eye, nose, and throat irritations, headaches, dizziness, visual disorders, memory impairment; some are known to cause cancer in animals; some are suspected of causing, or are known to cause, cancer in humans. At present, not much is know about what health effects occur at the levels of VOCs typically found in public and commercial buildings.
How can we help?
We will begin with an initial investigation of Indoor Air Quality, specifically TVOC count, this will determine the overall quantity of VOCs present with a building. If the TVOC level is unusually high we will proceed with further analysis to establish the source of the contaminants and how to properly restore your office or residence to a safe habitable level.
Do You Do Your Own Laboratory Analysis?
We do not. In order to offer an ethical service our clients can trust, we work with a third-party, local A2LA accredited Laboratory. This allows the results to be defensible in court. It is strongly suggested that you work with a environmental consulting company who does not perform in- house lab work.
