Diagnostics & Design


Every vapor intrusion occurrence presents a unique set of variables to diagnose, which requires an advanced understanding of contaminant mapping strategies, concentration levels, the building structure, air pressure dynamics, and vacuum field extensions of sub-slab ground conditions.

Clean Vapor’s mitigation team is experienced in analyzing all of these components and how they interact with each other over the lifetime of a vapor mitigation system. In addition, with over 100 years of combined experience Clean Vapor’s team of experts has assisted in creating regulatory standards for air quality and building codes to ensure occupant safety. All this experience and knowledge goes into every Vapor Intrusion Mitigation System (VIMS) we design.


The long-term success of a vapor mitigation system starts with the proper interpretation of field data. Although designing a mitigation system requires adherence to basic mechanical principles, a “standard mitigation solution” does not exist. In addition to the unique variables of each occurrence, regulatory standards differ between states, so a complete custom design is necessary to ensure regulatory compliance and effective mitigation.

The soil contaminants, concentration levels, the physical structure, the building’s air pressure dynamics, vacuum fields, and aesthetic requirements all go into the planning of every Clean Vapor mitigation system design. The final diagnosis, design report, and scope of work provide all the details you need to make an informed decision. Clean Vapor works hand-in-hand with you to ensure stakeholder buy-in, manage the regulatory environment, and put your project on a path to success as we get ready to build.
