Indoor Air Quality Testing Fees
Based in West Palm Beach A Accredited Mold Inspection Service, Inc. provides mold and indoor air quality testing in South Florida.
When considering indoor air quality testing fees the costs must cover lab fees, inspection fees, and shipping fees, and may also include additional specialty equipment rental fees. Most inspections are 3 and a half hours for residential and small commercial inspections and 5 hours for medium sized commercial facilities but of course these are rough estimates on time and cost as each investigation is different and cost vary.
Our typical fees for indoor air quality testing and investigations on homes and small commercial buildings of around 2000 square foot are not set in stone but
in general are:
HOME AIR CHECK INDOOR AIR QUALITY TESTING FEES
Two thermal desorption tubes are used to screen for the presence or absence of elevated VOC’s released by man made items, and microbial VOC’s released by mold and bacterial.
This test will tell you your total volatile organic compounds and total microbial volatile organic compounds.
This also includes a detailed inspection and a computer generated report.
The goal of this investigation is not to give a detailed breakdown of every chemical in your air.
This test is designed to let you know if you have a problem with your air in regard to volatile organic compounds.
This is more affordable than a complete breakdown that we offer below, and is prefect for homeowners who want to know if their is a problem in their air in regard to some of the most common indoor chemical pollutants in the homes air.
This is a great test if you are not sure if you have a problem or not. This is a detailed indoor air quality testing procedure with recommendations and a computer generated report. We recommend one additional sample for each 2000 sf of area to be tested and inspected.
Inspection Fee – $350.00
Lab Fee – $250.00
Home Air Check Total Fee – $600.00
INDOOR AIR QUALITY TESTING FEES WITH ONE THERMAL DISORPTION TUBE
This method uses one thermal desorption tube and can pick up and identify many organic compounds from List A and from the semi quantitative list below.
This is a one thermal desorption tube test that gives total volatile organic compound levels like the test above, in addition it does more than tell the total levels, it also identifies by name hundreds of different individual VOCs and MVOC’S that make up your total levels. In other words, unlike the above test that gives total levels of chemicals in your air, this test will breaks down the actual names and identify of hundreds of specific volatile chemicals in your home of workplace air. The significance of knowing the names of the pollutants in your air is that now your air quality consultant in conjunction with the lab will have a much better chance of identifying the source of indoor pollutants in your home or work place. Obviously this test is more expensive. This test does not include aldehydes such as formaldehyde. This is a detailed indoor air quality testing procedure with recommendations and a computer generated report. We recommend one additional sample for each 2000 sf of area to be tested and inspected.
Inspection fee – $350.00
Lab fee – $385.00
Total fee – $735.00
INDOOR AIR QUALITY TESTING FEES WITH TWO THERMAL DISORPTION TUBES
This is our most common and most revealing test method, it is an advanced two thermal desorption tube test that gives total volatile organic compound levels like the test above, also like the test above it also identifies by name hundreds of different individual VOCs and MVOC’S that make up your total levels.
In other words, this test gives total levels or chemicals in your air and this test will breaks down the actual names and identifies hundreds of specific volatile chemicals in your home of workplace air. The significance of knowing the names of the pollutants in your air is that now your air quality consultant in conjunction with the lab will have a much better chance of identifying the source of indoor pollutants in your home or work place.
Obviously this test is more expensive.
So how is this test different that the test above? Not only does this test measure and identify common VOC’s, but it also includes some very important ones that are often missed by other test methods, these often missed chemicals include aldehydes such as formaldehyde and other aldehydes, it is very important to not miss these compounds.
With this method items from list A and list B below, and items from the semiquantitative list below are included in the analysis. Using thermal desorption tubes can accurately analyze more compounds than the more commonly used TO-15 testing method, in fact roughly 1/3 of the compounds in the semiquantitative list are not picked up by methods such as the TO – 15 method often used by other indoor air quality testing companies.
This is a detailed indoor air quality testing procedure with recommendations and a computer generated report.
We recommend one additional sample for each 2000 sf of area to be tested and inspected.
Inspection fee – $350.00
Lab fee – $600.00
Total fee – $950.00
INDOOR AIR QUALITY TESTING FEES WITH TEDLAR BAG
Prism Analytical Lab method TB 002-IR
Tedlar bags are filled with about a liter of air or 1/2 full using a low flow pump.
This test is for detecting inorganic compounds (compounds not containing carbon in the chemical structure) We use a one liter bag galled a Tedlar bags to grab a sample of your air, the air is analyzed at an accredited laboratory. Inorganic compounds that can be identified and measured using Prism Analytical Lab method TB 002-IR include items from list C below, it will also detect some higher levels of compounds from list B below.
Inspection fee -$350.00
Lab fee – $195.00
Total fee – $545.00
INDOOR AIR QUALITY TESTING FEES CHINESE DRYWALL
Elemental sulfur testing for Chineses drywall includes visual inspection and
analysis of an actual drywall sample for conformation. (5 inch sample double bagged.)
Inspection Fee – $350.00
Lab Fee – $235.00
Total Fee $585.00
Prices and number of samples is not set in stone, are prices are a general rule. Also we can work with you on the number of samples and the price you want.
I KNOW THIS IS CONFUSING AND COMPLEX.
Just call for a written quote to save yourself a headache. Sounds like a lot but it is not much when you consider the fact that the labs gas chromatography mass spectrometry equipment is around two hundred thousand dollars and your health is priceless once it is gone.
