Depending on the type of problem, EEI consultants can quickly
conduct an inspection with minimal disruption, utilizing the
most effective analytical or sampling techniques. We then
share those results with you, clearly outlining the potential
risk to occupants and making recommendations for further action.
Indoor Air Quality Inspection. Because the causes of
indoor air quality are among the most difficult to identify,
EEI's Indoor Air Quality Team draws upon its integrated expertise
in environmental science, biology, chemistry, and laboratory work
to identify trouble spots and known irritants. Applying a full
range of test methods using state of the art computerized monitoring
equipment, our IAQ Team gathers data at various times of the day
under different conditions. Armed with our analyses and recommendations,
you can then make informed choices.
Biological Organisms Inspection. Extended exposure to biological
organisms can result in the development of chronic health and
respiratory problems. Microbial problems are one of the most
hazardous but also easily remediated categories of indoor
pollutants. Determining the solution calls for rigorous analytical
techniques. EEI's inspection includes identification of fungal
spores, bacteria, animal dander, dust mites, and less common
organisms. Assessing the potential risk to occupants, we can
then offer the best options for further action.
HVAC Systems Inspection. To find the cause of potential
contamination in air delivery systems, EEI inspectors utilize
boroscopic, visual, or swipe sampling techniques. One of the most
sophisticated devices of its type, EEl's boroscope permits viewing
deeply within your air delivery system, walls, and other recesses.
With the boroscope we can document with still photography or video
tape. These techniques can be used to visually identify sources of
contamination, or provide post-abatement documentation. If requested,
we will also inspect for possible cross-contamination sources, such
as lead, asbestos, and other potentially hazardous materials. Following
inspection and sampling, our stringently selected laboratories analyze
samples for contaminants such as molds, mildews, and volatile organic
Asbestos and Lead Inspection. If there is suspicion of the
presence of asbestos or lead containing materials, EEI performs,
surveys, collects bulk samples, and submits them for detailed analysis.
Using both X-ray fluorescent and sodium technology, our trained
inspectors can ensure accurate analysis. If asbestos or lead is
present, inspection will determine the dangers and the need for
either removal, enclosure, repair or encapsulation. Reports are
thorough, detailing both results and inspection conditions.
Following inspection, EEI is fully qualified to handle abatement
