Soil Vapor and Indoor Air Testing

At properties where soil or groundwater contamination has been found, vapors may migrate through the soils and threaten the air quality in overlying buildings.  This movement of chemical vapors through soils and into the breathing atmosphere of buildings is known as vapor migration and vapor intrusion.  In recent years, environmental regulators have widened their focus beyond soil and groundwater impact to include indoor air assessment.

EnviroSouth personnel have the capability and experience to evaluate properties for soil vapors and indoor air to meet the current demands of environmental regulators.  Pre-planning with regulators regarding the sampling approach is critical to completing soil vapor and indoor air testing in an efficient and cost-effective manner.  This strategic planning not only prevents the costs and delays associated with multiple mobilizations, but also reduces the chances of our clients being held responsible for air contaminants that are not associated with subsurface conditions.
