IAQ – Indoor Air Quality


IAQ stands for Indoor Air Quality. The air you breathe in your NJ home can be polluted by various factors that cause allergies and respiratory issues, sometimes serious. Your air may be affected by VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds), MVOCs (Mold Volatile Organic Compounds), Formaldehyde and Particulates. Mold Testing NJ-NY is a certified IAQ inspection and testing service that routinely inspects for these contaminants. Our professional IAQ Inspection and Testing Services are offered to homeowners in Bergen County NJ as well as a wide surrounding area. We offer advice regarding what you should know about IAQ.


What Is An IAQ Inspection And Why Is It Important?


Mold Testing NJ-NY will test your air to determine whether there are pollutants present and at what level. We are inspectors only, we do not remediate. This type of inspection is important because certain pollutants in the air can cause allergic reactions and illness, at times serious long-term respiratory health conditions.





Volatile Organic Compounds are gases produced by certain solids or liquids. VOCs may include a number of different chemicals, some presenting short-term and others long-term illnesses. The concentration of VOCs can be as much as ten times higher indoors than outdoors. We all spend a lot of time indoors and can be adversely affected by VOCs.


MVOCs are volatile organic gases produced by actively growing mold. The level of these gases should be measured to determine whether it is high enough to require remediation.


Formaldehyde is an organic air pollutant made up of carbon, oxygen and hydrogen. Although Formaldehyde is present outdoors, indoor concentration is usually higher because of the sources that produce it.


Particulates are matter made up of a mixture of solid and liquid droplets floating in the air. Some are released from specific sources, while others form from chemical reactions in the atmosphere. Particulates in the air are a specific cause of the spread of Covid 19.


Routine IAQ Testing Is Recommended


Regular IAQ Inspection and Testing makes you aware of an unhealthy atmosphere in your home. Although it sometimes seems as if certain allergies or respiratory issues appear mysteriously, they are probably being caused by pollutants in the air.
