Environmental Testing

A clean and safe environment is a prerequisite for health and quality of life. G2 works with market-leading laboratories and provides  Residential Environmental Testing Services.

Our cutting edge technology allows for many tests to be done non-invasively and gives our clients immediate feedback.

Lead Testing Services

G2 is one of the only environmental testing companies to use an X-RF (x-ray fluorescence device) specific for lead testing.  The X-RF allows us to test for lead without cutting a hole in your wall or ceiling, and gives you immediate feedback.  With the issue of lead paint in schools, businesses, homes and other public buildings, G2 can quickly and accurately run our x-ray fluorescence test, and partner with you in remediating any lead related problem.

Mold Testing Services

Before any type of mold appears on a wall or ceiling, it has had time to grow and thrive.  Although there are many types of mold, one of the most concerning is Stachybotrys chartarum, or “Black mold,” also referred to as “toxic mold” and is a leading catalyst in causing chronic sinus infections, breathing problems and other allergy symptoms.  It is often found within walls,  and around leaky pipes or air ducts.  Much of the time it cannot be seen on the surface. A type of Mold Testing, referred to as thermal imaging, can show our clients where water has gathered throughout their building or home, so that mold samples can be extracted from accurate locations, often before evidence of mold has surfaced.

Radon Testing Services

Radon, a naturally occurring chemical gas, that when ingested or inhaled over time, leads to cancer and other health conditions. Radon Act 51, passed by Congress, set the natural outdoor level of radon gas (0.4 pCi/L) as the target radon level for indoor radon levels. Unfortunately two-thirds of all homes exceed this level.  Radon Testing is the only way to know if you have radon levels that exceed the recommended exposure limit.  We offer professional radon testing and laboratory services and provide objective documentation of the current radon levels in your home. This professional documentation is useful for radon mitigation and home sales.

Asbestos Testing Services

Asbestos is a mineral found in many building materials used before 1990.  Since then, the EPA has had strict regulations on the use of asbestos when concerning building materials and appliances.  Long-term exposure to asbestos has been linked to many negative health effects, respiratory infections and cancer. Due to it’s presence in buildings built prior to 1990, or materials used to build newer buildings with recycled building materials, it is important to test your home for asbestos if you suspect it could be present in your.  Asbestos Testing is the only way to know if you have an asbestos problem.

Water Testing Services

Water is the most crucial element for all life.  Having clean, safe water is essential to keeping your home, business or school in good health. With the risk of radon contamination or other chemical build up in water, it is vitally important to test for water purity.  The only way to know what chemicals are in your water is to test for them. G2Ci offers a range of water testing services to meet our clients unique needs.  Whether it be drinking water testing, groundwater, surface water or wastewater we are here for you.

Soil Testing Services

Soil testing is important for both agricultural clients and our clients who are looking to build on new property, or remodel an existing building.  We test in two different ways depending on our clients needs.  For agricultural clients, we test for soil contaminants, such as radon and lead, as well as the soil’s nutrient content.  Ph is important for determining what crops will most likely succeed in certain soils.

For our industrial clients or those wishing to build a home or building, we perform testing to determine the buildability, flood potential and quality of the soil on a buildable property site.  When remodeling it is important to determine flood potential and soil quality as well.

Chemical Testing

G2’s quick and accurate chemical testing services ensure our clients are educated about the chemicals in and around their home.

Indoor Environmental Testing/Indoor Air Quality Testing

Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) is a broad term that describes occupant comfort in a built environment. Where the term Indoor Air Quality characterizes the condition of the air inside a building, IEQ goes further and includes sound, vibration, lighting and other variables that can impact the comfort of those living in a home.

Some health complaints can be attributed to the Indoor Environmental Quality or the Indoor Air Quality.  Health symptoms such as headaches, severe fatigue, sinusitis, rhinitis and asthma can occur if there is an IEQ/IAQ issue.
