Creating an Environment for Students to Thrive

“Sick building syndrome” refers to a situation where the occupants of a building experience acute health issues linked directly to the time spent in the building. When students and staff feel unwell, it can hinder their ability to concentrate and increase absenteeism. With the average student in the U.S. spending 1200+ hours per year in school, ensuring an environment that promotes the health and well-being of students and staff is essential.

Pace® provides testing services for educational institutions focused on many common threats to the health, safety, and well-being of students and staff.

Lead & Copper Testing in Daycare and Elementary Education

Lead exposure in children can lead to neurodevelopmental issues, lower IQ, and behavioral problems. Excessive copper can cause gastrointestinal distress and, over time, may contribute to liver and kidney damage.

Lead & Copper in Drinking Water

Drinking water in daycare centers and schools is one of the primary routes of exposure to lead and copper for many young children. Since children spend a significant portion of their day in educational settings, ensuring drinking water safety is vital.

Lead in Air, Soil, Paint and Dust

Pace® also provides environmental lead testing for regulations designed to limit lead exposure in environments where children reside or spend time. To learn more, contact us about our environmental testing services for lead in air, soil, paint, and dust.

Learn More About Asbestos Testing

Pace® Asbestos Testing Services

Asbestos abatement remains a primary objective for many educational institutions, especially for buildings constructed before the 1980s. Renovation and demolition activities can uncover asbestos-containing materials. Asbestos fibers impact indoor air quality and are known to cause asbestos-related health risks, such as asbestosis, lung cancer, and mesothelioma. More recently, asbestos has also been found in drinking water systems, stemming from the decay of water mains constructed of asbestos-containing cement.

Fungi, Mold, and Mycotoxins Testing

Often present in older buildings, mold can impact the health and well-being of students and staff. Using advanced techniques and the latest instrumentation, Pace® microbiologists can identify the species and measure the extent of contamination so you can take the necessary measures to ensure student and staff safety and adhere to the latest regulations.
