AIR QUALITY SOLUTIONS
We provide guidance to manage the indoor environment to include on-site inspections, evaluations, sampling and testing services, building science services. We also provide PRV (Post Remediation Verification) to verify the successful completion of any remediation services. We were previously a remediation contractor with a heavy science background and the currently have the ability to explain complex issues to our clients.
We have been in business in Lancaster for 30 years, serving folks in Pennsylvania and surrounding states and beyond. We have even helped a client in Greece.
Its all about the folks. I enjoy being Analogue, that is, being face-to-face with people. People need people. I have been gifted with the ability to analytically solve complex building science problems. Together with my understanding of human physiology, anatomy, biology, chemistry and physics, I have been able to develop an understanding which lead to solutions for helping people to live comfortably in their 'built environment'.
Give me a call at (717) 569-6211 for a free no-obligation, no-pressure conversation.

How did you get started in this business?
I got started after I tired of corporate life. I began the first modern air duct cleaning company in Lancaster, PA in 1989. From there, I began to see indoor air quality concerns that were not being addressed. Folks were not being served and I incorporated my knowledge of science with construction and became a building scientist.
Having taken many classes, courses and been on hundreds, even thousands of investigations, I have become well versed and competent in my field. I am also the Membership Chair for the New Jersey IAQ chapter. This chapter includes the states of New Jersey, New York, PA, DE, MD and parts of Virginia.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Residential, Commercial, Industrial. Homeowners, Renters, landlords, tenants, multi-story buildings, single homes.
Metal-working factories, Printing operations, Food Manufacturing, Dental supply distribution, Warehousing of foodstuffs, paper products, automotive and motorcycle distribution; milling operations, grinding, cutting, finishing, woodworking, steel mills, foundries.
Commercial offices, multi-story, single story, multi-tenant, daycare, manufacturing offices inside factories.
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
Traveling with my family; my wife, daughters and husbands. We took a road trip to Tennessee spending time in a BNB for about 10 days. We have taken several trips together, including Florida.
It is always a good time to be together for a week to 10 or more days as adults. We have a wonderful time. I had thought that after our daughters were graduated from High School that we would not be able to be together for family trips. I am so glad that I was wrong.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?
Find a person with whom you can communicate. The 3 C's are the most important;
Competence: why discuss a project with someone who has no competence to help?
Caring: Make certain that the person cares about every project they undertake, especially including your project.
Communicate: Be certain that the person with whom you will work communicates well and understands your concerns. Communication is key. If you are unable to communicate, then the other 2 C's are irrelevant.
What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?
Understand why you want to spend money in regards to this issue. Are you willing to COMMIT to a Plan of Action after you spend your hard earned money?
Am I teachable? What are the most important issues at hand? Am I open to being told that I made a mistake in managing my building? Am I willing to accept some responsibility for the problem at hand? And am I willing to make the changes required to solve the issue?
If you can successfully and honestly anwer these questions properly, you should have a successful endeavor.
