VOC and Asbestos Testing
Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) testing is recommended if there is an unidentified odor, know sources of VOCs in/around the structure, health symptoms such as dizziness and irritation.
LRC is certified to collect bulk asbestos (ASB) samples. ASB sampling is recommending in structures built before 1980 with suspect ASB containing material such as insulation, sheetrock, vinyl flooring, etc. After collecting the samples we include the interpreted results in a detailed report.
When you sense an unidentified odor in your home, it’s always important to determine the source of the odor. Volatile organic compounds can occur in numerous settings and can include a variety of chemicals originating from paints, cleaning supplies, pesticides, building materials, and more that can cause short- and long-term adverse health effects. Exposure to VOCs can result in initial health symptoms such as dizziness, irritation, etc.
Another similar dangerous health threat is exposure to items containing asbestos. Many homes built before 1979 were constructed with insulation or other materials containing asbestos that later became known to cause serious health problems, including mesothelioma, lung cancer, and other cancers.
Our experts at LRC Indoor Testing & Research are certified to collect asbestos and VOC samples that are tested for hazardous components. We can provide you with interpreted results in a detailed report following testing. If dangerous VOCs or asbestos particles are present, we highly recommend you contact a professional team for remediation.
