Title How Indoor Air Quality Can Impact the Well-Being of Building Occupants
Introduction EMSL Analytical provides testing services, sampling supplies and easy-to-use test kits to identify indoor pollutants from all types of buildings.

Cinnaminson,  NJ, January 26th, 2018

A few months ago, USA Today published an article that asked if people’s homes or offices were affecting their health. The importance of indoor air quality (IAQ) and minimizing indoor pollution were two key points of the column.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that Americans spend approximately 90% of their time indoors and that air quality has a major impact on people’s health and well-being. Accordingly, the article identifies the importance of minimizing indoor pollutants in home and work environments to increase better health. It also notes from a business standpoint that maintaining unpolluted indoor air can increase productivity and decrease sick days in the workplace. 

“Under normal conditions, the EPA reports that concentrations of some indoor pollutants are often 2 to 5 times higher than outdoor concentrations,” said Joe Frasca, Senior Vice President of Marketing at EMSL Analytical, Inc. “There are so many different chemical and microbial pollutants that people can be exposed to at elevated concentrations and not even realize they could be causing short or long-term concerns.”

Helping to identify IAQ pollutants are the trained laboratory experts at EMSL Analytical, Inc. EMSL offers air testing for volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and other chemical compounds, mold, bacteria, airborne allergens and irritants, asbestos, lead, radon, vapor intrusion and other services. They also provide all of the sampling supplies necessary, have easy-to-use test kits, and offer a wide range of real-time air monitoring and data logging instruments. They have even sponsored an educational video about air quality in homes and its potential impact on a family’s health. The video can be seen at: https://youtu.be/5eC31hjQAz4.
