Mold, Air, Water, Sewage testing company

I've been looking for a company who can test air quality inside and outside of my house. I have wondered foe years whether my house's inside air was polluted, because in the AM when I awake, I often feel poisoned. I've looked into oxygen deprivation (which would cause CO2 poisoning) and mold, so far. I used Real Time labs for mold and micotoxin testing. I've treated my house and cars for micotoxins with chlorine dixoide gas. I still don't think I have found the culprit, but I suspect it has to do with gut dysbiosis more than with the external environment, though both may play a part. 

In any case, the testing that these folks do might be among my next areas of inquiry. 


Why Test for Sewage Contamination?

Exposure to sewage contamination increases the risk of contracting diseases of the digestive system and other related illnesses. Potential disease causing organisms in sewage contamination include E. coli (some strains), Salmonella, and Shigella.

Sewage contamination can come from flooding events, failing septic systems, wastewater treatment plants, sewer overflows, vessel sewer discharge, runoff from surfaces, livestock, pets, wildlife, and humans. 

The following bacteria are used as indicators of sewage contamination.

  • E. coli
  • Total coliforms
  • Fecal coliforms
  • Enterococci
  • Fecal Streptococcus.

These bacteria are not a health threat themselves but their presence is used as an indication of other potentially harmful bacteria.
