A Home Inspection with VOC Inspection Testing

Springfield Quality Services offers a home inspection to ensure you are safe in your residence.

VOC Inspections

High levels of Volatile Organic Compounds can pose a health hazard to you and your family. These chemicals can be found in building materials used in the home, cooking sources, gasoline and fuel, some air freshener, carpeting, laser printers, paints, cleaning products and many other sources.

When is a VOC inspection recommended? 

We conduct VOC inspections and testing when we have a client complaining of odors or who are experiencing headaches or feel nauseous. Customers often chose our IAQ Home Survey Inspect to determine what harmful VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) may be present in their indoor air. The IAQ Home Survey Inspect also includes Mold VOC levels to determine actively growing mold compounds in the air. We can also test for Formaldehyde levels, and VOC levels present in the home that has experienced a fire. 

How is the test conducted? 

These tests usually take between 2-4 hours to complete. We use an OSHA and NIOSH approved method for collecting VOCs through a sorbent badge. This badge may be worn for up to 8 hrs or placed in suspect areas. The badge is then sent off to an independent lab for analysis.
