IAQ Test Kits Help Keep Families and Workers Safe and Productive

Mon, 20 Feb 2012 11:07:11 EST

People need to know that their homes, schools and places of business have safe indoor air quality (IAQ). According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), 'Health effects from indoor air pollutants may be experienced soon after exposure or, possibly, years later.'
These indoor air quality pollutants may include a variety of different contaminants and gases.  Mold, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), formaldehyde and radon are some of the more frequent culprits.
Some older properties can have mold and ventilation problems. New, or recently renovated, structures can have substantial amounts of formaldehyde and other VOCs. All types of homes, schools and businesses can have dangerous levels of radon.
Knowing the facts about indoor air quality is essential to maintaining people's health.  To help people test their IAQ, IAQ Index has introduced home test kits that are based on scientific research and are easy to use. 

'IAQ Index is a health-based, easy-to-understand, air quality index that is uniquely assigned to each kit after laboratory analysis,' reported Bruce Jacobs, CIH, President of IAQ Index. 'First, a numerical index is calculated based on the results from all the individual parameters analyzed from the kit samples; and then descriptive, color-coded ratings are assigned that summarizes the kit's findings.  The kits are easy to use, laboratory results come from accredited laboratories and the results are simple to understand,' he continued.

The cut points for the color rating system that consumers receive in their laboratory report are based on currently available guidance for evaluating exposures in non-industrial environments.  These include from the EPA, ASHRAE, threshold health effects data and laboratory guidance combined with industrial hygiene practices.

About IAQ Index
IAQ Index was developed by a Certified Industrial Hygienist with decades of experience dealing with indoor air quality issues.  IAQ Index was developed as a health-based, easy-to-understand, air quality index that is calculated from data generated for various parameters commonly measured during IAQ surveys.  The approach is similar to the EPA's Air Quality Index that has been used historically to communicate the risks posed by common pollutants in the ambient air.
