Once potential sources of contaminants are identified, Kyron’s IAQ professionals utilize the latest sampling and analytical equipment to determine whether they are related to the IAQ complaints. Common elements Kyron tests for include; carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, temperature, humidity, moisture, volatile organic compounds (VOC’s), formaldehyde, fungal spores, bacteria, and particulates.
Some IAQ problems are associated with mold.
- Mold needs two things to survive, a food source (i.e. dirt, building materials) and moisture.
- As a result, the key to controlling mold is preventing moisture from impacting building materials.
- Kyron’s Mold Investigations typically range in cost from $500 – $1200, depending on conditions/scope of work.
During our IAQ inspection, Kyron personnel use a Thermal Imager alongside a moisture meter to identify sources of leaks and water intrusion areas.
