Protect Your Family: Indoor Air Quality Testing
USA- Abingdon, MD | Jan 9 2013 | (22:56:25 - EST)
As people celebrate the New Year, many choose to make New Year’s resolutions that involve improving their health. These range from personal goals, such as quitting cigarettes and exercising more, to resolutions such as preparing healthier meals which impact the whole family.
Americans spend up to 90 percent of their time indoors, where some air pollutants can have concentrations several times higher than outdoor concentrations. Due to this fact, it’s important for people looking to improve their health in 2013 to consider the air in their homes, schools and work environments. One company that has made it simple to test for many of the most common indoor air quality (IAQ) contaminants is IAQ Index.
IAQ Index has developed a series of test kits that allow anyone to measure the quality of their air against health-based standards. The entire process is quick and easy. Once a test kit has been ordered from the company’s Website, simple instructions provide concise details on how to take the samples. The samples are then returned in a pre-paid shipping container that is mailed to a certified laboratory. Shortly after, an easy-to-understand report, based on scientifically sound health-based standards will arrive.
“Just like many of us take for granted the fact that there is water when we turn on the faucet, few people consider the quality of the air they breathe,” reported Bruce Jacobs, CIH, President of IAQ Index. “IAQ Index makes it easy to test the indoor air quality which is a major component to our health.”
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.
