Indoor Air Quality Testing
Managing air quality is essential in preventing illness and injury and provides a safe environment.
PHASE Associates’ professional team of Industrial Hygienists, Certified Industrial Hygienists (CIH) or Certified Microbial Consultants (CMC) will implement air quality testing, inspections, monitoring, assessments and recommendations for corrective actions. We use the latest direct-reading instruments and accredited laboratories using government-approved laboratory test methods when collecting samples.
The scope of an IAQ survey typically involves a visual inspection, occupant interviews and sampling of the subject building’s temperature, humidity, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
Asbestos, Mold, Legionella, Radon, and Formaldehyde can be dangerous Indoor Air quality hazards and can be harmful to the workplace environment and one’s health.
Our highly trained, board accredited professionals are able to conduct assessments, surveys and recommendations for the following services below.
Our EPA certified AHERA inspectors will conduct a visual inspection and collect bulk samples for suspect Asbestos Containing Material (ACM), document, label and assess each ACM. Asbestos services include: surveys, sampling, air monitoring and consulting.
All samples collected by PHASE Associates are analyzed by an accredited laboratory, and handled under a strict quality control program to assure the safety of our clients and the integrity of our services.
An industrial hygienist will review all the water systems at the building following the OSHA Technical Manual protocols. 1) Conduct a walk-through investigation of the building. 2) Assess the results of the walkthrough investigation to evaluate the next action plan. 3) Recommend control action plans include proper system temperatures, eliminating dead legs. 4) Collect water samples to identify Legionella levels after correction actions are successfully completed.
Our indoor air quality specialist will visit, assess the potential hazardous conditions, collect airborne formaldehyde vapors as necessary, interpret and discuss the results for necessary ways to reduce exposure.
Our highly trained industrial hygienists, CIH or CMC will conduct the inspections and surveys and who will also provide recommendations and/or create a bioremediation plan.
We provide pre-remediation and post-remediation surveys and have worked with insurance companies and remediation companies as an unbiased third party contractor.
Our services extend to both commercial and home clients.
- Conduct visual inspection mold growth of the interior structures and ventilation systems.
- Collect bulk, surface or air samples for further genus or species identification and quantities.
- Prepare a bio remediation plan based on the visual inspection and sampling result.
All radon testing is done by our radon professional, a licensed New Jersey Radon Measurement Specialist (RMS). Our radon surveys extend to child care centers, homes and commercial buildings.
The process is to collect, deploy and pick up the measurement radon devices. Each radon canister will be left for four days. No windows or doors can be left open during that period of time unless for normal exit and entry.
PHASE Associates has a niche in conducting radon surveys for child care centers. Every five years, child care centers need to conduct a radon survey in order to renew their license. By law, only the building owner or a NJ Certified radon business can conduct the radon survey for child care centers.
Our experienced Industrial Hygienists will provide the necessary support to protect personnel against respirable crystalline silica inhalation hazards. We develop and implement engineering controls and work practices; provide training and conduct air measurement sampling and silica dust surveys.
