How We Do It
It all starts with a call. We can schedule an appointment in parallel with your Walker Property Evaluation Services property inspection or a stand-a-lone visit. The sampling process is simple and non-invasive. The technology uses a state of the art Gas Mass Spectrometer, similar to what is seen on TV programs like CSItm and NCIStm.
- Once on-site, we collect the air sample using a calibrated air pump system
- Most homes up to 2,000 square feet require 1 air sample, larger homes may require more
- The air sample collection takes about 2-3 hours
- The sample tube is sent to Prism Analytical Technologies for analysis using a Gas Mass Spectrometer
- The results are analized using a proprietary analysis program and then reviewed by a technician
- The analysis report is generated and identifies probable sources for each chemical group
- Your results are emailed back, generally in 2 to 3 business days from the receipt of the sample

An Action Plan to Improve Indoor Air Quality
Walker Property Evaluation Services, a Home Air Check Certifed
Professional, provides you with the only composite home indoor air
quality assessment available today. The test measures hundreds of
chemicals in the air called Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and
actively growing mold all with a single air sample. It not only reports
on the total levels of VOCs and mold (MVOCs) present in the home, but it
also identifies the potential sources of air pollutants (e.g., paint,
adhesives, flooring, cabinets, heating fuel, dead animals and hundreds
of other products and materials that emit gases into the air).
This gives you actionable information on the steps necessary to improve
your indoor air quality.
Should your test results indicate excessive VOC levels and you want to know specifically what chemicals are present, a more detailed analysis can be requested (additional charge applies) that gives a complete breakdown of the top 10 chemical compounds in the air. All with no need to take another air sample. A trained chemist will be available to you to assist with interpretation of the analysis results.
