Title National Healthy Homes Month Focuses Attention on Indoor Air Quality
Introduction EMSL Analytical, Inc. offers indoor air quality testing services and sampling supplies to identify pollutants to protect families from exposure concerns.

Cinnaminson, NJ, June 14, 2017

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and other government institutions recognize the month of June as National Healthy Homes Month. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) theme for this month of recognition is Everyone Deserves a Safe and Healthy Home.

With the understanding that the vast majority of the population spends the majority of their time indoors, National Healthy Homes Month introduces the public to concepts and important tips for keeping their homes healthy and safe. A major component of a healthy home depends on the state of its indoor air quality.

The EPA states, “…National Healthy Homes Month — the perfect time to remember that a healthy home begins with healthy air. Why air? Because the air inside your home can contain harmful pollutants that put you and your family at risk. Keep in mind that health effects resulting from poor indoor air quality (IAQ) can be experienced soon after exposure and sometimes not until years later. Improving your home’s indoor air quality is important to your health and the health of your loved ones.”

Helping families to determine the air quality in their homes are the IAQ laboratory specialists at EMSL Analytical, Inc. With 40 laboratories across the United States and Canada, EMSL offers a wide range of air quality testing services for everything from mold, bacteria, allergens and particulate matter to lead, asbestos, radon and more.
