Solving poor indoor air quality mysteries can be quite a task. There are many possible sources within our indoor environments contributing to the chemical makeup of the air we breathe. When there has been recent construction or a new process implemented we can usually gain a better handle on what is causing the IAQ issue. How can you be sure that you have narrowed down the culprit?
Material off gas analysis can help determine which product is creating the concerning VOC's we find in the air. Chemical specific and full spectrum analyses are available. Prism can analyze both solid and semi-solid materials; such as flooring, carpet, insulation, clothing, furniture, bedding/mattresses, etc. This valuable data can then be cross referenced with the VOC air analysis to determine if the chemical signatures or fingerprints are the same.
Providing detailed analysis of the air and material source will allow the cleanup/containment work to begin. For assistance with planning your upcoming project or to learn more about Bulk Material Off Gassing, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 989-772-5088.
There are so many things in homes with the potential to emit chemicals. One of the largest contributors is building materials in new or recently renovated homes. These materials can include:
In addition to the building materials are the contents of the home, which can include furnishings, fabrics (clothing, linens, draperies, etc.), plastics, rubber, and many other items.
