- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?The following phases explain the processes we take to fully understand your indoor environmental concern. 1. Initial Survey - IndoorDoctor's process begins with your inquiry. During our initial conversation we will gather facts regarding your chief concern. Important preliminary information includes first an explanation of your concern, its adverse health effects, its onset, and the people affected and their previously diagnosed conditions; and second the layout of the property and the defined areas of concern, history of repairs or improvements to the property, and most importantly, your goal for the inspection. Next, you will schedule an assessment. An IndoorDoctor specialist will make every attempt to meet your schedule and deadlines. Our rapid response will enable you to gain solvency and peace of mind in the least amount of time possible. Before our visit, we will outline the pricing options. There are no hidden charges. 2. Assessment - On the day of the assessment, our uniformed specialist will verify your goals for the evaluation and testing. We will tour the property before using our calibrated, state-of-the-art testing equipment to take the prescribed diagnostic readings. During the inspection, the IndoorDoctor inspector will be glad to explain the function and specifications of each testing instrument. 3. Sampling- During the assessment phase, the inspector will take the appropriate type and number of samples needed to diagnose your environmental issue. During the sampling process, The IndoorDoctor specialist will continue to gather key diagnostic data. He will note the conditions that affect the sample on a chain of custody sheet that will accompany the samples to the laboratory. 4.
