Many firms are available today to help find solutions to IAQ problems. However, in most parts of the country the IAQ industry is not regulated. Therefore, it is important to make sure that you utilize a qualified professional.

The Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA) recommends and endorses the certification programs of the American Council for Accredited Certifications (ACAC), an independent certification body.

Atlantic Shores Environmental Services, Ltd. (ASE) personnel are trained and certified in IAQ assessment and remediation by ACAC. ASE has a Certified Indoor Environmental Constultant (CIEC) and Certified Microbial Remediation Supervisor (CMRS) on staff.

Concerns about mold and other contaminants in occupied structures, both new and existing construction, have significantly increased over the past few years. The issue is being driven in part by health concerns, tort liability, and media coverage. ASE can provide assessment, remediation, clearance testing and general guidance on your residential, commercial or industrial IAQ issues.

The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System allows newly constructed buildings to earn credits, either by flushing the building air or performing air testing prior to occupancy. ASE can perform this sampling and implements protocols consistent with the USEPA Compendium of Methods for the Determination of Air Pollutants in Indoor Air.
