Why Indoor Air Quality Solutions for Your IAQ Assessment? 
Healthy Home or Office Assessment - Indoor Environmental Assessment

IAQ Solutions begins all our Indoor Air Quality IAQ inspections with a thorough visual inspection of the interior and exterior of your home or office to identify any and all contributors that may compromise your Indoor Air Quality.  It’s not just mold that can compromise your indoor air quality.  

Our Indoor Air Quality, IAQ Assessments and Nuisance Odor investigations also involve measuring the indoor environment of your home or office both at rest (HVAC off) as well as active (HVAC running).

We measure onsite in real time for:
    •  Temperature                                   •  Ozone
    •  Carbon Dioxide                              •  Formaldehyde
    •  Carbon Monoxide                         •  Relative Humidity
    •  Airborne Particulate Matter         •  Volatile Organic Compounds

These indoor environmental measurements help us to identify areas of your home or office that need to be further investigated as well as establishing the efficiency of your home or office ventilation system.

Indoor Air Quality Solutions IAQS focuses on identifying the contributors to poor indoor air quality by focusing on the whole home as a single system that can affect your indoor environment.

Building envelope failures such as leaks at the roof or windows, air conditioning failure which can include duct leaks, excessive condensation, and/or negative pressure of the living space can all be contributors to indoor air quality problems and the elevation of indoor allergens. 

Our ability to identify an elevation of contaminants or allergens within your home and identify the cause and origin is what sets us apart.

With our years of experience, we will provide you with an Indoor Air Quality Report with specific corrective action and/or protocol designed to help you quickly Improve and maintain your indoor environment.

Why Indoor Air Quality Solutions for Your Mold Assessment? 

Our licensed mold inspections begin with a thorough visual inspection to identify the cause and origin of the moisture that supported the mold growth in your home or office.  Identifying the cause and origin is critical and may not always be clear or evident.  It's the identification of the cause and origin and correcting the source of the moisture that will ensure that the mold will not return.

We then provide the specific area of loss and extent of water and mold damage.  This is extremely important and prevents the mold remediators from exagerating the extent of the loss.  This is the mold remediation protocol.  The scope of work that the mold remediation contractors will use to estimate the work and perform the remediation.

Orlando Mold Inspection

ASTM D7338 Standard Guide for Assessment of Fungal Growth in Buildings Section 7.1 The most important requirement of an assessment for fungal growth is an on-site inspection of the subject building. It is very important to remember that the ASTM D-7338 is the only recognized standard for mold assessment. 

Florida Mold Inspection

According to the ASTM D-7338 the parts of a mold assessment included:

  • the collection of background information, 
  • the formulation of a hypothesis or hypotheses, 
  • on-site inspection including moisture dynamics, 
  • an evaluation of the HVAC system, 
  • hypothesis testing, 
  • site documentation and written report.

Mold Remediation Protocol

We then provide you with a written protocol specific to the loss.  The mold remediation protocol establishes the extent of the water and mold damage and provides you with a floor plan defining the area of your loss including the necessary containment to prevent any possible cross contamination.  The mold remediation protocol will also specify the building material that will be removed and the proper cleaning for the contained area of your home or office. 

The mold remediation protocol will also clearly establish the remediation goals or mold clearance criteria.  The remediation goals are necessary to ensure that the remediation contractor understands what is expected of them.  

Our mold remediation protocol can be submitted to your insurance company to provide the cause and origin of the loss as well as the extent of the damage. 

The protocol can then be provided to several licensed mold remediation contractors for mold remediation estimates that would be based on the specifications outlined in the remediation protocol and not the mold remediators opinion or personal assessment.  In Florida, it is against the Florida Statute to provide both the assessment and remediation on the same job.  That’s a direct conflict of interest.

Finally IAQ Solutions will inspect your home or office when the mold remediation contractor has complete the remediation but prior to and re-build or reconstruction of the remediated areas.  This is extremely important to ensure that the remediation contractor is not leaving residual mold or mold spores that can have a substantial impact on you or your family once the containment barriers are removed.

With the mold inspection, mold remediation protocol, and the post mold remediation verification inspection you will have the documentation necessary to show that your loss was identified and completed with verification from licensed professionals.

Our Indoor Air Quality Inspections and Air Testing and Our Mold Inspections and Testing will answer all of your questions and provide you with the tools to reclaim your Indoor Environment.

Indoor Air Quality Solutions, IAQS and Indoor Air Quality

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) refers to the effect of the air inside a building on its occupants.

Good IAQ is the quality of air which has no unwanted gasses or particles in it at concentrations which will adversely affect a buildings occupants.

Poor IAQ occurs when gases or particles are present at an excessive concentration so as to affect the satisfaction or health of a buildings occupants.

IAQ problems can arise from moisture, insects, pets, appliances, materials used in household products, furnishings, building materials, smoke and other sources, all of which affect your indoor air quality and become a health concern.  
Isolating the source of IAQ Issues and any health concerns in your home or office and providing a solution is what Florida Indoor Air Quality Solutions IAQS specializes in.

The most common Florida IAQ complaint is mold.  Mold can present many health concerns such as watery, itchy eyes, a chronic cough, headaches or migraines, difficulty breathing, rashes, tiredness, sinus problems, nasal blockage and frequent sneezing.

To determine if your IAQ concern is mold related you first need a mold assessment.  A mold assessment will establish the cause and origin of the moisture that is supporting the mold growth as well as the extent of the mold contamination.

IAQ Solutions provides a complete inspection of your home or office to determine the cause and origin of your indoor air quality issues.  It’s not always mold.  IAQ Solution will inspect all areas of your home or office including the HVAC system.

The physical inspection of your home or office is the most important first step to establishing the condition of your indoor environment and IAQ.  In most cases mold testing or mold sampling isn’t necessary.  If mold testing and sampling is necessary the mold inspectors at IAQ Solutions are Licensed and trained in all aspects of mold sampling surface and air.

IAQ Solutions will provide you with the necessary recommendations to restore your indoor environment and improve your indoor air quality.  

If your IAQ issue is mold related, IAQ Solutions will provide you with a mold remediation protocol that will establish the specific steps necessary to properly remediate the mold contaminated areas of your home and repair the cause and origin of the moisture that supported the mold growth.

For all of our clients, IAQ Solutions will review all mold remediation estimates provided by licensed mold remediators submitting estimates based on our mold remediation protocol.  IAQ Solutions will also provide oversight of the actual mold remediation and conduct a post remediation verification inspection to ensure that the mold remediation was successfully completed prior to reconstruction and the removal of any containment barriers.  This is when the mold testing and mold sampling is critical to document the completion of the mold remediation.

IAQ Solutions provides all of our clients full document of the mold inspection, mold remediation protocol, and post remediation verification inspection.  These documents become a permanent record of the identification and correction of the mold within your home or office.  The post remediation verification and mold sampling results confirm the successful completion of the mold remediation.
