What is it about mite feces, cockroach secretions and cat skin flakes that makes people have allergies? Allergenic proteins. This test has been developed to measure the most important indoor allergen proteins. To assess allergen exposure in the home, a dust sample is collected from the bed, carpet or sofa.
Yes, dust can be a health hazard. It’s also a serious trigger for allergies and asthma. The media is designed for the rapid collection of a wide range of particulate matter including mold spores, pollen, insect parts, skin cells, fibers, mineral dust, the biogenic and inorganic particles, and opaque particles.
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are emitted as gases from certain solids or liquids. VOCs include a variety of chemicals, some of which may have short and long-term adverse health effects. This test is designed to detect over 500 chemical compounds and active mold growth.
In low levels, molds and mold spores are generally harmless, but if their levels increase, they can affect people; especially people with allergies, asthma and respiratory conditions or suppressed immune systems. This test is designed to detect over 500 chemical compounds and active mold growth.
Formaldehyde is an important chemical widely used by industry to manufacture building materials and numerous household products. Formaldehyde can cause irritation of the skin, eyes, nose and throat. This test is designed to effectively capture this known carcinogen for analysis.
Eliminating secondhand smoke exposure is the only permanent solution. This test looks for specific chemical compounds known to be present in second-hand (environmental tobacco smoke or passive smoke) and third-hand smoke, commonly thought of as stale tobacco smoke or tobacco smoke residue.
Air testing options need to be as flexible as each space’s air testing needs are unique. So whether you’re a new home buyer trying to understand general indoor air quality, or a building or HVAC contractor looking to provide clients with exceptional air quality testing, we can guide you toward a cleaner, healthier environment. From VOCs to surface dust, making an informed decision about what to do requires the right data. Understand your air quality at more than a glance.
