American Air Testing is a family-owned and operated small business, providing quality environmental inspection services since 2001. Specializing in indoor air quality testing for contaminants including to asbestos, bacteria, lead-based paint, and mold.
We are professionals, qualified by knowledge, skill, education, training, certifications, and experience. Our qualifications allow all members of our company to perform inspections of structures, systems, and contents at every job site. Since each client’s needs differ we create an individualized sampling strategy for each project.
We are consultants. We are hired to perform testing as an initial assessment and/or to perform validation/clearance testing after abatement/remediation work has been completed. We do not perform remediation/abatement (cleaning/repair) work. This is to ensure we have no financial interest to find a problem. Additionally, we have no financial ties to any remediation/abatement companies. We are an independent, third party, testing company.
Air Quality Testing and Inspections
All air quality testing and inspections include; samples of the indoor environment, which are submitted to an appropriate laboratory for analysis and a copy of our report which interprets both the site evaluation and the laboratory data. Considering all available data, an appropriate strategy can be developed to return your indoor air space to a healthy condition, if mold remediation is required we can refer you to one of our highly trusted environmental contractors.
Our business began only testing for mold. We soon realized that asbestos and lead-based paint are both often additional contaminants that must also be addressed when dealing with mold contamination issues in older buildings. In order to provide the most thorough testing, we acquired additional certifications to be able to assess for these contaminants.
The average age of properties constructed in the Bay Area influenced our decision to expand our sampling ability and certifications. Only by considering multiple contaminants can proper repair and cleaning protocols be established. Companies providing asbestos and lead-based paint testing are required to have state and federal licenses. You can view our current certification licenses. Additionally, bacterial testing is available to analyze for the presence/absence of E. Coli and Coliforms as a result of a sewage spill or overflow.
By remaining a small business, we are able to provide the attention to detail to each project which is necessary to thoroughly communicate repair and cleaning instructions to resolve the contaminant(s) found. In addition, we include preventative maintenance measure recommendations to improve your chances of preventing the problem(s) from returning or developing.
