Air Quality testing
Air Quality Testing
In order to reproduce, mould produces tiny particles called spores. Spores are carried in the air and may cause health problems if inhaled by people who are sensitive or allergic to them. These include a running or blocked nose, irritation of the eyes and skin and sometimes wheezing. Occasionally, people may have more severe reactions. Very rarely, people may develop a mould infection, usually in the lungs. It is important to note that most people will not experience any health problems from coming in contact with mould.
If you or your child has asthma, have you ever noticed symptoms get worse when the air is polluted?
Air pollution can make it harder to breathe. It can also cause other symptoms, like coughing, wheezing, chest discomfort, and a burning feeling in the lungs.
Airborne particulates come in a variety of forms ranging from animal dander, plant pollen, and airborne bacteria, to fiberglass, asbestos, and combustion particles. Motionless, human beings alone shed up to 500,000 particles(0.3µm) per minute. When active, this level can reach up to 45,000,000 particles per minute. Humidity and temperature play a significant role in the generation rate of these pollutants. To properly identify and troubleshoot IAQ problems, Mould Busters use a tool that not only reads particle concentrations, but also provides insight into the environment that causes pollutants to grow. Why Particle Counts Matter Different locations have varying levels of acceptable particulate concentrations, driven primarily by health and comfort concerns (i.e. homes, offices, paint booths) or contamination (i.e. hospitals, food and beverage plants, cleanrooms). Excessive levels can result in medical conditions such as Sick Building Syndrome, lower productivity, contaminated product, or all of the above.
