Course Cost: $85.00
Ever been in an office or at a clients' home where your eyes start to get a burning sensation? Have you performed a mold inspection and the results come back with no mold, but your client still has symptoms? Did you know that high humidity levels can cause presswood products to emanate VOC's and formaldehyde?
VOC's play a major part in sick building syndrome. VOC's also have Threshold Limit Values so you can explain to your client if there is a potential problem.
When sampling for VOC contamination, if you are using a lab for the analysis of the sample, typically the lab will send you the pump and media at no cost. The average charge for an inspection and sampling starts at $300 per sample and goes up from there.
