Dallas Green Building Clearance
City of Dallas Green Building Program – 804.2 Post Construction, Preoccupancy Baseline IAQ Testing
In Dallas, “safeguarding public health , safety and general welfare” is recognized as a fundamental link between their new green building codes and the city’s efforts to preserve safe healthy indoor environments. Construction codes now require all new buildings and first time renovations to pass a strict Green Building Clearance Which includes air quality testing for Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) compliance before a Certificate of Occupancy is issued.
FixAIRx can test and provide SAME DAY emailed results
Testing is in accordance with ASTM D5197, ASTM D5466, ASTM D6196, ASTM D 6345, or ISO 7708 standards.
PLAN AND DETAILS
|Green Building Clearance|
The use of products with high levels of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) can continue to off-gas dangerous chemicals long after the construction is complete. Make sure to choose products, paints, stains and furniture with Low to No VOC components.
We know getting your inspection and clearance report back quickly is essential so you can have your Grand Opening on time. We respond quickly and will always include suggestions for fixing any problems we find.
Here’s what we’ll do … top top bottom:
- Visually examine ventilation, air flow and filtration
- We will test each area for total VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds) and can include other contaminants including carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, combustion gases, respirable and non-respirable dust and particulates, and other bioaerosols (mold, bacteria, and allergens).
- Visually inspect facility for damage from moisture intrusion/mold, and excessive construction dust
- Fungal – Airborne or Surface samples to identify the types and quantities of fungal spores present
- Mycotoxins – Dust samples are tested for up to 15 dangerous chemical metabolites resulting from certain types of toxic mold growth.
- Full Chemical VOC Analysis – Identification and quantification of hundreds of chemicals present in a given location. Including combustion byproducts.
- Formaldehyde Test – formaldehyde can be in flooring, paint, fabric, furniture, and adhesives.
- Allergen Identification – Sample of dust is sent to the lab to identify dangerous levels of allergens such as pollen and pet dander, cockroach and dust mites.
- Additional Air sampling with unknown particle identification
- Bacterial Testing – swab samples to check for lingering bacterial problems
- Liquid Samples – can be tested for a wide array of contaminants
- Tobacco Smoke Testing
- Lead Testing
- Radon Testing
- Asbestos Testing
Additional charges may apply.
