Biological Contaminants Inspection and Sampling

Course Cost:  $85.00

Course Value

Looking for a simple, yet effective service to add to your business? Many clients do not know they have the potential for the number one cause of asthma triggers, wouldn't you like to help them identify it?

This course is designed for you to identify potential areas of concern for your clients. Biological contaminants such as mold, dustmites, cockroaches and pet dander can cause anything from flu-like symptoms to major allergic responses to your client.

If you have a vacuum, or access to a vacuum, you now have half of the equipment needed to perform most of the sampling.
