Specialty Testing

Do you have a unique environmental concern?

IndoorDoctor® addresses your concerns about specific toxin and indoor pollutant sensitivities through specialty testing.

We combine years of professional environmental engineering experience with indisputable laboratory results to help you determine the presence of environmental threats unique to your situation. Listed below are the most commonly requested specialty tests.
Ideally, initial testing will have established baseline levels before remediation; QA testing, or post-clearance testing, determines the effectiveness of these efforts to ensure the air is healthy. If the initial testing showed low and safe levels, you will want to ensure the levels are still low after removing or cleaning contaminated materials. If the initial testing showed elevated levels, you will want to see a successful reduction of the previously detected pollutant. Establishing the need for QA testing prior to beginning the remediation project will help establish a clear, mutual understanding of the work scope and define the end-state for success.
In an effort to reduce home energy costs, more and more homeowners are retrofitting their homes by installing spray foam insulation. While this material is effective at reducing heat loss, it can also emit airborne, cancer-causing agents and make the home too tight, reducing ventilation and yielding high concentrations of harmful gasses. At IndoorDoctor, we’ve seen an increased number of indoor air quality concerns from clients who have recently installed spray foam; they report prolonged foul odors throughout the home and experience adverse health symptoms.
Complex allergens, such as dust mites, cockroaches, mice and pet dander, can wreak havoc on your immune system. An effective way to quantify allergens is through dust sampling. By understanding your indoor surroundings through allergen screening, you can make effective decisions about how to reduce your exposure and validate the effectiveness of your reduction efforts. An IndoorDoctor allergen screen can also help your physicians better diagnose and treat your allergy symptoms.
Airborne fiberglass particles invade the airspace in attics, walls, loose recess lighting, duct work, and exposed insulation in a basement. The jagged microscopic glass penetrates the eyes, throat, and lungs, causing irritation and potential chronic respiratory distress. Infants and children are especially vulnerable to airborne fiberglass, often resulting in unexplained prolonged coughing. Once these particles become airborne, they tend to stay airborne much longer than a typical dust particle. If you suffer from respiratory issues or are concerned about the effects fiberglass may be having on your family, expand your IndoorDoctor air sampling to include fiberglass.
We live in a world filled with toxic fumes and chemicals. The health effects of these odors can range from mild discomfort to lasting health complications, such as headaches, loss of coordination, nausea, and damage to the liver, kidney, and central nervous system. Many VOCs are linked to cancer. IndoorDoctor can instantly measure the total VOC level that you are breathing and, if needed, quantify these toxins down to parts per billion (ppb).
MCS is a chronic, recurring disorder caused by a person's inability to tolerate environmental chemicals or a group of sensitivities to extraordinarily low levels of environmental chemicals. Symptoms often include nausea, fatigue, dizziness and headaches, but also commonly include inflammation of skin, joints, gastrointestinal tract, and airways. Some individuals develop MCS following acute or chronic exposure to a wide variety of environmental agents, such as pesticides, solvents, drugs, and air contaminants, including those found in sick homes and buildings. If you or a family member suffers from MCS, we can help with our chemical monitoring and control measures to reduce your exposure.
The technologies, appliances, and gadgets we use today emit electromagnetic radiation that can penetrate and affect us, potentially compromising our health. After an extensive review of 2,000+ such studies, the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences concluded Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs) “should be regarded as possible carcinogens.” We’re exposed to 100 million times more artificial EMF radiation than our grandparents were and that exposure grows each year. Our specialized EMF sensors will record radiation pulses from your mobile devices, wireless systems and even outdoor power lines to determine how much electromagnetic radiation you’re exposed to on a daily basis.
Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the American Lung Association agree that long-term exposure to elevated levels of radon pose a significant health risk to you and your family. These agencies recommend testing your home every two years. Because radon is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas, the only way to determine its presence in your home is by testing. IndoorDoctor makes it easy to schedule this test and then make sense of the results.
Are you the victim of a flood, fire, storm damage, or other natural disaster? Improper clean up and restoration can make a bad situation even worse. To avoid this outcome, we recommend identifying and quantifying post-disaster, environmental hazards so you can remove them safely and effectively. Failure to properly dry out, contain, and sanitize impacted building materials can lead to the spread of harmful molds and toxins. We help you put the pieces back together correctly with a solid game plan based on sound protocol to contain, remediate, and rebuild appropriately
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates nearly 19 percent of Americans drink water from systems that do not meet federal water quality standards. The Natural Resource Defense Council estimates seven million people become ill each year as a result of contaminated drinking water. One-fifth of our nation's population drinks tap water with more than the EPA-approved level of microorganisms. IndoorDoctor can test your water for harmful contaminants.
Poor ventilation and restricted airflow can lead to a build-up of pollutants, degrading overall indoor air quality. IndoorDoctor’s sensing systems can measure air speed and pressurization. Based on the results, we will inform you of appropriate control measures to maintain balanced airflow for a healthy environment.
Only experienced and licensed restoration firms should deal with sewage or black water cleanup because dangerous bacteria continues to thrive even after sanitization attempts. IndoorDoctor’s comprehensive sewage assessment clearance test identifies any presence of fecal matter and E. coli while addressing other bacterial considerations, too.

Hygiene Sanitization Monitoring System

Detects hidden moisture pockets that could lead to toxic mold. A thermal camera is used in home inspection to quickly analyze the environment for issues ranging from missing insulation which can increase energy bills. The thermal images from the camera can also detect leaks underfloor, walls or on the ceiling. It can be used inside and outside enabling the home inspector to safely and efficiently do their job.

Electromagnetic Frequency (EMF) Sensors

Instantly quantifies true moisture percentage to verify if surface will support toxic mold growth. Measure the moisture content of building materials with a moisture meter. Analog and digital models can help determine the moisture level of wood, paper, drywall, concrete and more to help ensure the quality and integrity of materials used in construction projects.​

Airflow Meter

Fully calibrated sampling pumps draw air evenly, at a controlled flow rate, for accurate testing results.

Digital Sound Level Monitor

Accurately records irritating and harmful sound decibels responsible for noise pollution that leads to hypertension, high stress levels, tinnitus, hearing loss, sleep disturbances, and other harmful effects.
