Soil Gas Intrusion Testing

Soil Gas Intrusion Testing

Vapor intrusion is the process whereby VOC gasses from chemical spills that have contaminated soil or groundwater make their way into a building. Contamination from these spills will sometimes spread in a plume to locations underneath nearby buildings. Vapors can intrude into buildings from the ground underneath them.

 

Testing for these contaminates is targeted for VOCs known to be components of the spill.

 

Because the levels are usually quite low, a very sensitive test procedure is required to detect them. The test procedure, called mass spectrometry/gas chromatograph analysis, requires samples be collected and sent to a certified laboratory for analysis.

What We Do

The first part of the investigation is to determine what the target compound or compounds are...

Once that has been established, designing a testing protocol is necessary to ensure the desired information from the testing will be achieved. These protocols may involve more than one kind of test.

Once the tests have been conducted, interpreting the results will allow for a clearer picture of what’s going on. This in turn helps determine a proper course of action.

What Does It Cost?

The cost for this kind of testing requires a customized quote.
