Indoor and Outdoor Air Quality Monitoring
There is often no single factor that determines the quality of indoor air in an office space. The indoor air quality of a building is a complexity of factors that influence the link to human health effects. Concentrations of indoor air pollutants are influenced by changes in activities both within and outside the buildings, cleaning, heating and renovation regimes, the degree of ventilation, and the presence of products that are hazardous (including asbestos) or emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
Typical contaminates EnviroX sample for pending on the site and what is likely to affect the site include but not limited to:
- Carbon dioxide (CO2)
- Carbon monoxide (CO)
- Nitric oxide (NO)
- Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2)
- Respirable dust (PM10, 4, 2.5)
- Mould and fungi air monitoring
- Total dust
- Metals in Dust (such as Lead)
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) including formaldehyde
- Diesel Particulate Matter (DPM)
