Define Indoor Air Quality


Mahwah NJ Certified Indoor Air Quality Services When we talk about Indoor Air Quality we mean the caliber of the air surrounding you and your family in your home. Often the air we breathe can be polluted. The result of living with polluted air can be allergies or respiratory issues. These can lead to long term health conditions. Mold Testing NJ-NY offers NJ homeowners testing for Volatile Organic Compounds, Mold-based Volatile Organic Compounds, Formaldehyde and Particulates. Our inspections result in a report that determines if you need remediation, or confirms that your indoor air is safe to beathe. Testing for Indoor Air Quality is something we are certified to deal with.


Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Definitions



Volatile Organic Compounds are gases tht arise from certain solids or liquids. VOC can include chemicals. Some of these chemicals present short term adverse health effects, others present long term health issues. Concentration of these compounds are higher indoors than outside. We routinely test for VOCs.


MVOCs or Volatile Organic gases emitted by mold. These gas levels need to be measured to determine the level of active mold growth in your house. This is accomplished by an air survey. Again, Mold Testing NJ-NY routinely tests for MVOCs.


Formaldehyde is an organic air pollutant made of carbon, oxygen and hudrogen. It is normally present outside, but if found inside the concentration is generally higher. We test for formaldehyde routinely.


Particulates are a mixture of solid and liquid droplets floating in the air. You’ve probably heard talk of particulates in relation to the Covid-19 pandemic. Some particulates are released into the air directly from a specific source. Others are formed by chemical reactions. This is another thing we routinely test for.
