Black/Sewer Water Testing

The health hazards of black/sewer water Contamination

Don't risk the health of you and your loved ones to potentially deadly diseases

Water intrusion from severe flooding, sewage backup and leaking sewer pipes or septic tanks can lead to the contamination of your home or business. Exposure to raw sewage (known as black water) greatly increases the risk of exposure to dangerous digestive system diseases and other related illnesses. Some of the possible diseases that you could be exposed to include Salmonella, Escherichia coli, and Shigella.

After sewage contamination

Testing For Pathogens

To help determine the possible health risks from the sewage contamination, testing for pathogens (disease causing microorganisms) and bacteria such as total coliforms, fecal coliforms and Enterococcus is usually needed, and highly recommended, to determine the presence and extent of the bacteria. We will also retest for these after the sewage cleanup has been performed to ensure the affected area is safe to be reoccupied.

Luce Air Quality will take a combination of on-site samples – bacteria air, wipe and bulk samples – and will offer complete data analysis and interpretation of the cultured samples (results usually take 24-48 hours) taken from all areas affected by the black/sewer water. Next we will develop recommendations for remediation following the standards set by the IICRC / S500 Standard for Water Damaged Restoration and will do a post water damage restoration assessment to confirm that the sewage damage restoration was successful so that containment barriers can be taken down and reconstruction can begin.

From Our Clients

Excellent! After coming home to find water damage, Luce Air Quality was the first company I called. Not only did they go out of their way to come inspect at later hours of the night, they explained everything to me and educated me on exactly what was going on and how to handle it. I would recommend this company to anyone in need!

Had an amazing experience with Luce Environmental Testing Services. Dave Luce came from over an hour away and ended up telling me he wasn’t going to waste my money and that my area was visibly not ready for testing. That’s ethics at its best. If anyone has to do any industrial hygiene testing or environmental testing, I highly recommend his services!!

We highly recommend Dave Luce and his company Luce Air Quality for your home inspection and air quality testing needs. Dave is extremely professional, goes above and beyond for his clients, and has a genuine passion for his trade. We know this because we recommend him for air quality testing to clients of our company, MicroTech Solutions, which specializes in water damage clean up and mold remediation. Additionally, we hire him directly for the same type of services when they are needed. He is trustworthy and is considered the best in the business in our opinion. Look no further for air quality testing or mold assessment.

Excellent company to work with! They were very professional throughout the entire process, ready to pick up our phone calls at any time, they were very patient by answering many repetitive and annoying questions from multiple parties involved on the matter. The quality of their reports are excellent! Easy to understand from a customer standpoint/perspective and full of detail unlike other companies I have dealt with that provide 2 short & brief pages on findings and remediation recommendations. We had the results the very next day after the inspection and a remediation plan recommended that successfully resolved our air quality concerns after completion. I will recommend them to anyone who has concerns with their air quality or needs a professional opinion on any microbial growth concern in general. Thank you LAQ!

The guys from Luce air quality were extremely professional and informative! They were very patient in addressing all of my concerns/questions and even provided next day test results. I was also provided a top notch vendor to perform my mold remediation. I can’t thank Dave and his team enough for giving my family the best of service, and most importantly “peace of mind”!!! They are truly the way to a breath of fresh air in a congested industry of inferior companies...I know, because I dealt with a few prior! Highly recommended

Dave & Company at Luce Air Quality are a pleasure to do business with for multiple reasons, including their professionalism, punctuality, attention to detail in all they do, and much more. I'm a State Certified Mold Remediator that works very close with several parties in Dave's field. I can say with confidence that Dave and his team are operating at an elite level when compared to others who offer the same service in the same demographic. Additionally, I know Dave on a personal level. He is a man of integrity and is someone I trust without reservation. Dave has both my personal and professional endorsement.
Brian S.
Luce Air Quality is the kind of company a customer NEEDS. In the air quality industry, there are many professionals that do a "good" job. But today's customers expect and DESERVE more than average. David and his team at Luce make it a firm commitment to deliver a memorable experience. That starts with the first call for consultation, to setting the expectation to the site visit. They show a fine touch on education and explanation. Indoor air quality can be a vague and sometimes confusing topic. Taking the time to specifically identify needs and customize results is an outstanding deliverable. If you or someone you know are experiencing a disruptive event in your home or business, you would would be far better comforted by knowing an industry leader is on your side. Unsanitary water, mold, hazardous materials, lead, VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds). Luce and their team of professionals deal with these daily and can expertly assist in developing a plan to return your treasure back to its previously safe condition.
Klark B.

Mason M.
Dave, owner of Luce Air Quality, inspected a home that my husband and I were putting an offer on and were concerned about parts of it. Dave was a total professional and also saved us THOUSANDS of dollars by finding a serious problem with the home. He wasn't using scare tactics, as he also found some areas that he told us was super easy for us to treat ourselves. Luce Air Quality isn't all about scaring you and making money, you can tell they are total professionals and want to make sure families are safe and knowledgeable. Thank you, Dave & Team! You have a customer for life.
Kim B.

Todd C.
Excellent company that provided excellent service. The owners are pleasant, extremely professional and knowledgeable. I was able to get an appointment quickly and that was helpful due to the urgent nature of a mold issue in our home. They took the time to provide a detailed explanation of the process and what we could expect going forward. It's hard to find good people that still want to provide a quality job but Luce Air Quality was exceptional. They communicated promptly regarding our air quality test results and answered all of our questions. I rarely leave reviews, but I felt like this company deserved to be recognized for a job well done! Thanks Dave L. and Dave M. for all your help! I will certainly recommend you in the future to anyone needing your services.
