Vapor Intrusion

Torrent Laboratory offers regular and low-level reporting for soil vapor testing. Soil vapor intrusion testing is used to analyze and reduce the presence of volatile chemicals in soil. When there are volatile chemicals in subsurface soils, they can move into overlying buildings via vapor intrusion and could lead to indoor air contamination. These chemicals are potential health concerns, but vapor intrusion testing can determine if there is a problem that needs to be addressed. Vapor testing is the first step to monitoring vapor intrusion and can be useful in both commercial and domestic environments.

Vapor Intrusion Testing Procedures

Vapor intrusion mitigation is achieved by first testing the environment to discover if volatile chemicals have entered various areas. Soil testing can be combined with air tests to test if chemicals are being released from the soil into the air or other parts of the environment. Ground contamination testing is often the first step to determine whether an issue is present. Torrent Laboratory has certifications at the highest level from several agencies, including the Department of Defense and CA ELAP for vapor intrusion testing and more.
