Targeted Toxins

We understand that every person and every home is unique, and we develop a customized testing plan that is tailored to your specific concerns and needs.

With our Targeted Toxins Assessment, you have the ability to select specific toxins you'd like to test for, customizing your choices to suit your needs. We are equipped to detect thousands of harmful substances that could be found in your home.

Some of the common toxins that we test for in homes include:

Mold

Mold can hide behind walls for decades before it’s visible. It can spread throughout a home, causing serious physical and mental health problems, especially in people with compromised immune systems. A common misperception is that mold doesn’t grow in dry climates. Mold can grow anywhere moisture gets trapped – inside walls, underneath tile and grout, and inside insulation. Anywhere that gets wet and cannot dry completely within 24 - 48 hours, mold can grow.

Formaldehyde

Formaldehyde is a colorless, highly toxic, flammable gas and a common type of volatile organic compound (VOC). It can cause cancer among many other illnesses. Formaldehyde is often found in pressed-wood products (plywood, particle board, paneling), foam insulation, wallpaper and paint, synthetic fabrics, and cosmetics and personal products. Levels inside a new or newly remodeled home can be extremely high.

Radon

Radon is a radioactive gas that emanates naturally from the ground. When it seeps into enclosed spaces like homes, it can accumulate to dangerous levels. Prolonged exposure to high levels of radon increases the risk of developing
lung cancer. In fact, radon is the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers.

Tobacco and/or Cannabis Smoke

Smoke particles are extremely small and can easily penetrate porous surfaces, such as walls, carpet, and upholstery. Smoke particles can become trapped in these materials and continue to emit harmful chemicals over time, even if you can no longer smell the smoke. Smoke from cigarettes contains around 200 known poisons, including 60 carcinogens. Smoke from marijuana has many of the same toxins, irritants, and carcinogens as tobacco smoke.

Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2)

Nitrogen Dioxide is a toxic gas created by combustion processes like cooking on gas stoves. NO2 it's especially harmful to the lungs and has been linked to cardiovascular harm, lower birthweight in newborns, and permanent lung damage. Higher levels can cause trouble breathing, collapse, and even death.

Benzene

Benzene is a colorless, highly flammable liquid with a sweet odor. It’s found in plastics, synthetic fibers, cigarette smoke, detergents, automobile exhaust, and pesticides. It is highly toxic and can cause dizziness, headaches, nausea, and respiratory problems. Long-term exposure has been linked to leukemia, lymphoma, and multiple myeloma.

Final Report, Analysis and Mitigation Plan

As with our other assessments, we compile all the laboratory results and provide a comprehensive report, including an analysis of our findings and a mitigation plan.
