"Bad air quality can make people sick. Indoor air quality problems can be caused by inadequate ventilation, indoor contamination, outdoor contamination, microbial contamination, contamination from building fabric and soil and/or groundwater contamination beneath the building. Some common reasons for air problems are carbon monoxide, mold and fabrics." [EPA]
SCHUTZE & Associates, Inc. uses various methods to assess indoor air quality. One method of indoor air sample collection is to use time-weighted SUMMA canisters. Other methods include the use of Gore-Sorber modules, sampling fabric or using Tedlar bags. For the testing of airborne particles, we use air pumps and collect time-weighted samples. In addition, SCHUTZE & Associates, Inc. investigates the potential for the intrusion of contaminated vapors into the building from the subsurface by collecting subslab soil vapor samples. SCHUTZE & Associates, Inc. collects radon samples using Track-Etch sampling devices.
SCHUTZE & Associates, Inc. also specializes in mercury testing of indoor air, using an Ambient Air Sampling System with a carbon vane pump/critical orifice.
