Preparing Your Home for Testing


For our Clients who have scheduled testing:


In order to capture the most representative air sample, we recommend the following steps be taken:

  1. Close outside doors and windows – preferably for one entire day before sampling
  2. Leave all interior doors (including closets) open to allow the air to flow freely
  3. Refrain from frying or cooking with oils the day before and during the test to prevent artificially high VOC results.  Also please do not cook at all during the test
  4. Do not clean or dust during the test or within 12 hours of beginning the test.


We want your tests to be as accurate as possible!  Thank you for your help!
