Joel-Anthony Gray  – Mold Assessment Consultant (MAC) Texas Dept. of Safety & Health Services License # MAC1387

We have been testing formaldehyde in the Dallas – Fort Worth area for years and DO NOT require cutting into your laminate floor or charge $525 – $600 per sample and then make you wait for results like some laboratories.

BASIC INDOOR AIR QUALITY (IAQ) INSPECTION

  • Formaldehyde (HCHO) – non-destructive testing – immediate results
  • VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) including benzene, toluene
  • Carbon Dioxide (CO2) – general measure of ventilation quality
  • Carbon Monoxide (CO) – deadly gas
  • Respirable Dust Particles in PM2.5 (fine) and PM10 (coarse) size regimes
  • Oxygen Levels (where applicable)
  • HEPA Filtration, MERV rating and other air purifier efficiency metrics
  • Relative ventilation levels – critical to know in newer homes that are built “tight” for energy efficiency

SPECIAL / OPTIONAL AIR QUALITY SERVICES

  • Mold Assessment Consulting (MAC licensed by the State of Texas)
  • Radon Rn-222 Levels (known alpha emitter lung carcinogen)
  • Forensic laboratory field testing (air grab, bulk, tape lift, swab / wipe, etc.) where required for bacterial, viral issues
  • Particulate counts by size channel: 0.3 um, 0.5 um, 1.0 um, 2.5 um, 5 um, 10 um
  • Ozone gas levels and hydrogen sulfide (associated with sewer gas leaks)
  • Positive / negative air pressure checks to confirm tendency for contamination

along with atmospheric factors such as:

  • Temperature
  • Relative Humidity
  • Barometric Pressure (to judge whether the structure is under positive or negative pressure with respect to the outside air)

and for commercial applications such as HVAC metrics, we can also measure:

  • Absolute Humidity
  • Dew Point
  • Mixing Ratio
  • Vapor Pressure
  • Heat Stress (WBGT) & Heat Index Factors

    Mr. Gonzalez,

    I do test for formaldehyde as well as other VOCs, mold and indoor air quality, but due to demand for my services, my rates and clientele are now all commercial.
