AIR QUALITY TESTING AT THE DEMERS RESIDENCE

Early on about 3 weeks into this lengthy Oil Spill cleanup, the contractors ENPRO Services Inc. [ENPRO] And AMBROSE Environmental Management Inc. [AMBROSE] - thought that the home was clean and safe to reoccupy. They told the Demers' that the strong petroleum odors in the home were residual odors that would go away once the home was cleaned. Michael Demers had told the contractors on several occasions that he thought more work needed to be done on the property and complained that he and his mother felt nauseous, dizzy and were getting headaches after visiting the home. On March 7, 2007 Michael Demers took action and contacted their Homeowners Insurance Company [MMG] and MMG adjuster Mr. Matt Bigley sent an Indoor Air Quality Expert Mr. Tom Lloyd from Air Quality Management Inc. [AQM] to the home the next day on March 8, 2007 to investigate. He did an air test of the home and discovered Elevated levels oil chemical compounds throughout the entire home. And he also discovered behind the furnace a crack in the floor that also had an elevated reading of 150ppm coming from it. This area was shown to and tested by ENPRO on two occasions prior and no readings were detected coming from this area behind the furnace?

Below is the Summary of Indoor Air Testing Results Performed by ENPRO Services Inc. beginning on 8/27/07 and ending on 4/12/08

*Air Quality Management Inc. Initiated an Indoor Air Quality Test of the Home on March 12, 2007

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE FIRST COLUMN DATED 3/12/07 IN THE AIR TABLE BELOW ARE INDEPENDENT EXPERT MR. TOM LLOYD FROM AIR QUALITY MANAGEMENT INC. HIRED BY HOMEOWNERS INSUANCE COMPANY AND HIS FINDINGS DISCOVERED THAT DAY. [Please see document section for his full report]








 

Not only was Mom displaced from her home after the oil spill, but she was allowed by the contractors' to enter this home during the course of this lengthy cleanup and told on multiple occasions that the cleanup was complete and it was safe to enter her home…It wasn't, Mrs. Demers became very sick from these harmful chemicals that were present in the Indoor Air of the Home. She went to the doctors and was prescribed medicine for headaches, dizziness, nausia, and lung infections.
