Title Are Contaminants Lurking in the Air in Your Home?
Introduction EMSL Analytical provides air quality testing services, sampling supplies, kits and monitoring equipment to identify airborne pollutants.

Cinnaminson, NJ, December 11th, 2015

A couple weeks ago, millions of families gathered across the United States to enjoy Thanksgiving. During the celebrations, people cooked, cleaned and many appreciated the ambience provided by wood fires and candles. Some people may have even noticed that a crowded home made for stuffy conditions and more than a few stepped outside during the holiday for some fresh air.  

This all brings up the question of just how healthy is the indoor air quality (IAQ) in your home? While a crowded family gathering can exacerbate IAQ conditions that become clearly evident to many people, even normal situations in some homes could be exposing families to potentially unhealthy air quality.  

Common indoor air quality contaminants and pollutants include mold from water damage or elevated humidity levels; carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide; radon; allergens from pets, dust mites, rodents and cockroaches; cigarette smoke and fireplace residues; volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from furnishings and cleaning products; particulates and gases from combustion devices and appliances; and even lead dust and asbestos in older homes.  

“During the cooler months when windows are closed and limited fresh air enters a home, airborne pollutants can increase in concentration,” said Joe Frasca, Senior Vice President of Marketing at EMSL Analytical, Inc.  “While every home is unique and may face its own distinctive air quality challenges, it’s important for the health and wellbeing of people who live in the home to breathe air that is free of elevated levels of potentially harmful pollutants.”  

Helping people to identify indoor air quality contaminants and pollutants is EMSL Analytical, Inc. EMSL has laboratories located from coast to coast in the United States and Canada that provide testing services and sampling supplies. They have even created a line of easy-to-use consumer test kits for many of the most common indoor environmental concerns. These kits can be accessed at www.EMSLTestKits.com.
