Indoor Air Quality Testing

Let us give you peace of mind in knowing that you, your family or your business is safe from unhealthy living and working conditions.  Here are some more facts about indoor air quality you should know:

 

1. Schools have some of the worst air quality

Schools have more occupants than an office building and have the same floor space. In a closed space where children breathe more air in relation to their body weight, there can be many allergens that float around.

 

2. Asthma is on the rise

Asthma occurrences has been on the rise. Your indoor air quality may be contributing to your allergies and asthma. Which in turn may lead to a poor quality of life.

 

3. Candles are more dangerous than you think

Unknown to many, most candles contain unhealthy chemicals. Two known types are benzene and toluene. These chemicals are also found in exhausts and are present when you burn candles. In effect you are releasing these toxins into your home.

 

 

4. Odorless natural gas

Aside from having carbon dioxide detectors installed, think about installing a radon detector.  

Radon is a radioactive natural gas. It is also odorless and colorless and can enter your home through the cracks.

 

5. Kitchen pollution

Did you know that the kitchen is one of the causes of indoor air pollution? Cooking and the appliances that you use produce nitrogen dioxide, carbon monoxide, particulate matter, formaldehyde, acrolein, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. There are acceptable levels for these chemicals but it’s important to ensure that your kitchen has adequate ventilation.

 

6. Household dust

Are you aware that household dust is a contributor to indoor air pollution?

However, much you clean your house in a day, household dust is still present. The dust is comprised of everything from human skin to food particles.

 

7. Air fresheners only freshen the air

These fresheners can contain phthalates. According to noharm-uscanada.org, phthalates, a family of industrial chemicals used to soften PVC plastic and as solvents in cosmetics and other consumer products can be very damaging for your health.
