Pelorus provides high-quality environmental testing for home and commercial properties based in Atlanta. Our specialized, technical, and unbiased analysis will identify environmental hazards that could be harmful to your health, such as radon, mold, lead, and asbestos.
Radon is a naturally occurring gas that occurs in trace amounts in the atmosphere. Radon gas can become trapped indoors, and if exposed to it over time, it can increase your risk of lung cancer. Nationally, the EPA estimates that about 21,000 people die each year due to radon-related lung cancer. That’s why the U.S. Surgeon General recommends ALL homes be tested for harmful radon gas on a regular basis.
Our certified radon testing experts will determine your level of exposure so you can take immediate steps to keep your family safe.
For more information about indoor air quality and the health risks of radon, visit the Environmental Protection Agency website.
Indoor air quality has been identified as one of the top five most urgent environmental risks to public health according to the EPA. Our air quality testing techniques will identify and measure harmful contaminants and off-gassing your family may be breathing in your home.
Our Home Air Quality Test uses VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) testing procedures to give you a profile of your air quality. We take special care to produce accurate results and work in conjunction with multiple local environmental laboratories. Mold Testing is done to identify mold and resolve moisture problems.
Young people, elderly people, people with compromised immune systems, allergies, asthma or skin irritations will benefit from this type of testing.
Exposure to asbestos typically occurs in occupational settings and in homes, and is the primary cause of mesothelioma, a cancer of the lining of the lungs or abdomen. Our licensed Asbestos Testing service is conducted by certified experts who will safely examine materials in your home to test for asbestos without releasing harmful fibers into the air.
Examples of Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM) include:
The deterioration of lead-based paint can create elevated levels of contaminated dust particles that are harmful to children and pregnant women. Our qualified inspectors conduct a lead paint test to identify lead hazards in your home in order to prevent unsafe lead exposure. This is especially important in older homes where there are plans to remove walls or otherwise remodel, tear down, replace doors and windows.
It’s important to make sure any commercial buildings are deemed safe, otherwise the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) can demand substantial increases in cost of remodeling and construction.

Water testing is done for commercial clients to ensure your water is clean and pure. We have the capability to test your water sources for almost any compound or chemical, including harmful harmful bacteria, such as E. coli, along with other minerals and heavy metals, including lead.
