The presence of volatile compounds in soil and groundwater, such as petroleum hydrocarbons and chlorinated solvents, offers the potential for chemical vapors to migrate upward through unprotected building floor slabs. Over time, these vapors can adversely affect the indoor air quality of a building, potentially causing a risk to human health. A vapor intrusion investigation can assess if you have an indoor air problem or the potential for one. If needed, a variety of vapor mitigation systems are available that can be designed to meet your needs; whether the mitigation system is integrated with new construction or retrofitted into an existing building.

BrightFields can assist by evaluating potential vapor intrusion pathways and providing mitigation services in both residential and commercial properties.
