What Is The Indoor Air Quality In Your House?
When we use the acronym IAQ we are referring to Indoor Air Quality. The air you breathe may be polluted by various factors such as VOCs, MVOCs, Formaldehyde and Particulates. This contaminated air can cause allergies or respiratory issues, sometimes serious ones. Mold Testing NJ-NY is a certified IAQ testing service that will test the air and determine the level, if any, of pollutants in the environment of your home. We offer comprehensive IAQ Inspection and Testing in Bergen County NJ and nearby area homes.
Some of the pollutants tested for by Mold Testing NJ-NY in determining the IAQ of your home are:
VOC means Volatile Organic Compounds. These are gases which are derived from certain solids, liquids or chemicals. The concentration of these compounds is generally higher indoors than outdoors. Some of these compounds can cause short-term health problems, while others produce more long-term issues. Mold Testing NJ-NY routinely tests for VOCs.
MVOC means Mold Volatile Organic Compounds. MVOCs need to be measured to determine the level of mold growth in your house. This is done by an air survey. We also routinely test for MVOCs.
Formaldehyde is an organic air pollutant consisting of carbon, oxygen and hydrogen. This compound is usually found in higher concentrations indoors than outdoors. We routinely test for Formaldehyde.
Particulates are a mixture of solid and liquid droplets floating in the air. You may recall particulates being mentioned in relation to Covid-19. At times Particulates are released into the air by a specific source, while others can be formed by chemical reactions. Mold Testing NJ-NY also routinely tests for Particulates.
Regular IAQ Testing Is Recommended
Testing regularly for IAQ issues keeps you aware of an unhealthy atmosphere in your home. While you may think certain allergies or respiratory problems appear mysteriously, they are probably caused by pollutants in the air.
