Air Mapping is "Blood Hounding" Your Odors To Find The Source And We Don't Make A Mess On Your Floors

We use professional grade air sensor tools to find the hot spot or source of the odors. Sometimes the source is obvious – things like cleaning products under your kitchen sink that aren’t sealed well. Other times, there are no visible hints. In this case we are prepared to take an air sample to be sent to a qualified, professional environmental lab. This sample is analyzed for 400+ chemicals. This is pretty useless to most of us, so we help you out by categorizing the chemicals found. Not all 400+ chemicals will be found in your air – just the chemicals found will be shown. We break it down further to show the chemicals from paints 

Air Mapping to Find the Sources

Our “Blood Hound” can find

  • CO (Carbon Monoxide)
  • CO2 (Carbon Dioxide)
  • Ozone
  • Oxygen
  • TVOCs
  • Relative Humidity
  • Temperature
  • Particles or PM .3, .5.1, 2.5, 5, 10 
  • Ammonia (by request)
  • Sulphur Dioxide (by request)
  • Hydrogen Sulphide (by request)
  • Particles in air .3µg/m³, .5.1µg/m³, 2.5µg/m³, 5µg/m³, 10µg/m³ (by request)
  • Formaldehyde (coming)
If other contaminants are suspected, we have alternative methods to confirm or deny their presence.

Sometimes we will need to perform additional testing with traditional pumps and environmental labs for more complex project to give accurate cleanup or abatement recommendations.

While onsite we can test for mold, asbestos, silica, lead (paint, water, soil), bacteria/sewage, specific chemicals as well as a more inclusive TVOC level. 

These tests are sent to appropriate labs and there is a three to ten day analysis period.

We Provide Air Mapping of your Project with recommendation

Our “blood hound” is very good at reporting what was found in your project. Our report contains the  data obtained during our onsite visit. There are also graphs and charts as well as recommendations on lowering the TVOC levels inside your living space.


HVAC Systems and Ways to Reduce COVID-19 Aerosols

This post applies to commercial HVAC systems. The tried and true methods of filtration, dilution, air mapping and monitoring, pressurization, temperature and humidity control still are a foundation in our war against COVID-19 transmissions. All of these solutions require an HVAC system that responds to changes seen in air monitors or onsite facilities engineering staff.

It’s primary that you understand what an “infectious aerosol” is and why that’s important.

Filtration with true-HEPA air purification system for intake and recirculating air is strongly recommended as there is  a lot of scientific evidence to support this.
