indoor air quality test

Air Masters specializes in providing a complete indoor air quality test service, we not only test for IAQ problems but we also provide free recommendations.

We provide services for a wide variety of settings including residents, office buildings, factories, warehouses, hospitals and pharmaceutical complexes. If employees or building occupants are complaining of poor air quality or increased illnesses as colds, flu, asthma, weakness, burning eyes, itching skin, rashes, sore throats, allergies, lethargy, or headaches, there is a possibility this could be related to the IAQ.

Dust Analysis

Dust is ubiquitous in our environment but generally falls into one of three categories: household dust, workplace dust and industrial dust. Parameters that are commonly examined include: • Particular Matter 2.5 (PM2.5). • Particular Matter 10 (PM10).

Gas Analysis

Combustion analysis involves the measurement of gas concentrations. Parameters that are commonly examined include: • Formaldehyde (HCHO). • Total Volatile Organic Compound (TVOC). • Carbon Monoxide (CO). • Carbon Dioxide (CO2). • Radon (Rn).

Method of Testing

Ambient air sampling will be conducted by using several specialty instruments. These meters will sample the air quality every few sections giving a complete and accurate reading within just a few minutes. The Air Masters inspector will use anywhere between one to six air samplers depending on the environment and chosen package.

Procedure of Testing

Before the inspector can begin the air quality test, they will need to complete a calibration process on all devices. This will be completed by resetting all testers to baseline outside air quality.

Once that has been completed, they will begin registering air samples in different locations of the building. The meter will determine the amount of airborne particles, gases, spores present in the suspect area at that point in time.

All methods of collection are tracked using identification documents and will be returned to the office for review and finalize with a user friendly report.

IAQ Fun Fact

Particles are generally a cause for concern when daily average levels are above 12 ug/m3. Particles are known to trigger asthma and allergy symptoms. At levels above 35 ug/m3, they can harm normally healthy adults by causing emphysema and diminished lung capacity. Children and elderly are more susceptible.

“Clean and neat.. Would recommend them. Took their time and did what they promised to do. They removed their shoes and are very courteous. They took the time to explain and answer all my questions and were not there to just hurry up and get out of there. Did it properly and promptly. Thank you for a fine job.”
