I. Background Assessment

  • Building Construction
  • Fabric Type
  • Ventilation System
  • Previous Problems
  • Previous Studies
  • Renovations

 We have completed over 500 individual indoor air quality studies at various types of facilities including schools, office buildings, factories, apartment buildings, homes, etc.

II.   Initial Site Visit

  • Walk-through evaluations
  • Personal Interview
  • Environmental Monitoring
    • Detector tubes
    • Psychometers for Temperature and Humidity
    • Carbon Monoxide and Carbon Dioxide Measurements
    • Smoke Tubes

Our Studies begin with general questionnaire for the building occupants.

III. Follow-up Site Visit

  • More Specific Sampling and Analysis
  • Chemical
  • Microbiological
  • Ventilation Inspection and Measurements

    Indoor Air Quality problems can often be remediated with simple, inexpensive measures.

Mold can be a problem in almost any structure in the world.   Mold is not a plant or an animal but has its own kingdom of fungi to describe this persistent and prolific pest.


The industrial hygienists at EEC performing mold spore sampling include biologists, CIHs and specialists trained in the identification and sampling of mold.   Interpretation of mold data can be misleading and requires the expertise of CIH to evaluate conditions inside environment.


The staff at EEC has helped hundreds of clients deal with environmental issues in a fast, safe and economical fashion.   When you choose EEC you can be assured that your project will be done on time, within budget and to your satisfaction.   


Mold spores exist everywhere.   In perfect environment, the spores are dormant but may become active when the high humidity and cellulose material are available for it to grow.   Just like food and water.   EEC can test the air in your building for airborne mold spore concentrations and perform indoor measurements for temperature and humidity.


If you are planning on purchasing a remodeling a building, you will find our Mold Screen to be an exceptional value.   If you think you are experiencing adverse health effects from mold, the mold screen is a cost effective testing protocol to help define the source of the problem.



We all live with mold spores around us everyday, at homes or at work places. Generally there are more mold spores in the outside environment. As long as the humidity is controlled in the inside environment and there is no water intrusion that has been accumulated for a long period of time, growth of mold spores can be minimized. Mold spores in the basements and crawlspaces of the buildings are common. A vapor barrier in the crawlspace is a good common solution.   However, there are two key factors that will determine if mold is a problem for any building or not:

BIOLOGICAL: Some people have an amplified sensitivity to mold, regardless of the quantity of mold they are exposed to or its toxicity.   On the other hand, we have also seen people living in environments with extraordinarily high concentrations of mold spores without exhibiting any adverse effects.    If one experiences symptoms similar to an allergic reaction, it could be mold spores.   Do not panic, we can help.

MOLD TOXICITY: There are only a few toxic molds commonly found in buildings. We can test the mold in question and send it to one of our third party analytical laboratories and have the species of mold identified.   Knowing the type of mold in the building, we can than assess other factors (such as the location of the mold, the HVAC system for the building, the source of moisture, etc.) and make a determination on the risk to the mold exposure and solution for remediation.
