Soil vapor or soil gas testing is a cost effective method of volatile organic compounds (VOC's) detection.
Optimal Technology is a California state certified mobile laboratory and can conduct vapor intrusion testing for risk assessment. We can achieve detection limits with our mobile laboratories that are below the Residential Land Use CHHSL’s.
We have seen a recent increase in the need for soil vapor testing to assess the possible risk of vapor intrusion. Many risk assessments are based on the California Human Health Screening Levels (CHHSL’s) for Indoor Air and Soil Gas. The CHHSLs require detection limits that are far below the previous standard used in soil vapor testing.
Optimal Technology is a licensed Methane testing laboratory (license # 10239) for the Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety (LADBS) and can perform all the necessary testing requirements to obtain building permits in Methane Buffer Zones.
Optimal Technology is a California state certified mobile laboratory. (ELAP Certificate No. 2779). Designed for efficiency and accuracy, our mobile laboratories have state-of-the-art laboratory grade equipment for soil gas testing in the field. Each lab is self-sufficient providing their own electric power for the hydraulic probe emplacement system and analytical instrumentation.
Soil sampling adds flexibility to a project. The decision to expand the scope of work of a project into soil testing can be made on site with Optimal Technology's soil boring and extraction capabilities.
