Air quality testing is the process of checking and analyzing the air quality in a school, office, home, etc. You may not realize it, but air quality directly affects you in your daily life. It’s no secret that American’s spend the majority of their time indoors. Unfortunately, studies have shown that the level of VOC’s in the air is a lot higher indoors than outdoors. VOC’s (volatile organic compounds) are emitted as gases from certain liquids or solids and can have both short and long-term adverse health effects.
Poor quality air indoors can significantly affect our health. Air pollutants can cause health problems such as headaches, fatigue, sore eyes, burning of the nose or throat, or even respiratory illnesses. These pollutants can include, but are not limited to, mold, asbestos, dust, cleaning products, solvents, gas, fumes & other chemicals. As more and more becomes known about the side effects of poor air quality, the more people are taking action to test their air quality.
Good indoor air quality is crucial to a healthy office environment. It is extremely important to test the air quality in offices, as it has shown negative effects towards employees productivity. Bad air quality can cause employees to get sick a lot easier, meaning they have to leave the office or call out of work.
