Indoor Air Quality Inspections
Medallion Healthy Homes can improve your indoor air quality. Call for a FREE phone consultation.
The air inside our homes and businesses can be far more polluted than air outdoors.
According to the EPA, indoor air pollution is America’s #1 environmental concern. Most of us spend 90% or more of our time indoors, and so indoor air quality affects us every day and in many ways. Solvents, harsh cleaning agents, and other chemicals can concentrate indoors, especially when energy-efficient windows and doors keep air trapped inside. Carpets, HVAC systems, and upholstery all contribute to poor indoor air quality. When dirty, they can’t act as filters to improve the air indoors.

Mold can be a nightmare. When present in large quantities, it presents a serious health hazard, potentially causing allergic reactions, respiratory problems, and other health complications. We can test for mold, run lab analyses, and offer remediation and other solutions.
Classified as a human carcinogen, formaldehyde is found in many building and chemical materials and can cause a variety of health problems. We often recommend formaldehyde testing for homebuyers evaluating a potential purchase.
Indoor Air Quality: Home Survey
Our IAQ tests use on-site samples to check mold and VOC levels (volatile organic compounds). We provide a detailed lab report, which lets us pinpoint VOC sources in your home. As a result, we’re able to offer you a step-by-step plan with suggestions to drastically improve indoor air quality—and your health.
Tobacco smoke contains over 4,000 chemical compounds and is a known human carcinogen. Our tobacco tests are highly sensitive. We recommend them to potential homebuyers or renters as well as to such commercial clients as retirement communities and hotels to certify rooms as “smoke-free.”
Indoor Air Quality: Commercial Survey
We offer similar IAQ tests for commercial clients to ensure healthy indoor air for the workplace. We provide lab reports and clear guidance on addressing problem sources. We serve a variety of commercial clients, from property managers to retail and office complexes.
