During our testing, we identify the common contaminants present that affect whether the indoor air quality is acceptable or otherwise. We compare the results we get to the current occupational and workplace exposure limits and the relevant regulations. We then provide a list of recommendations when applicable and necessary.
The following parameters are measured in our standard suite of indoor air quality testing.
The number of contaminants found in indoor air should not exceed concentrations that have been found to cause discomfort or negatively impact the health of occupants. Examples of these contaminants are vapours, different gases, microorganisms, smoke, dust and other particulate matter.
Apart from making sure that the indoor air in premises is safe for occupants, our indoor air quality assessments in Maidstone also ensures compliance to regulations of the following.
The main objective of indoor air quality testing is to ensure the comfort parameters of the air and its overall hygienic quality.
We can also offer additional parameters to our suite including testing for Ozone (unstable Oxygen, O3), Nitrogen Oxide (NOx), Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s), and Total Dust Particulates.
As we have seen, the potential causes of poor indoor air quality are many and there are numerous regulatory mechanisms in place that address the issue. But there are other reasons to have Clean Air UK in to test the indoor air quality aside from the fact that it is a regulatory responsibility. Here are 4 practical benefits of indoor air quality testing and monitoring in Maidstone:
1: Fewer sick days – In some cases when staff members go home sick for the day their nasal irritation, headaches, sore throat and more are the result of poor air quality. A situation that can often be remedied by indoor air quality testing and monitoring.
2: A more comfortable work environment – Clean air reduces eye irritation, prevents headaches, and will not irritate the respiratory systems of those with allergies. The result is a more comfortable working environment for everyone. Statistics prove comfortable workers are productive workers.
3: Reduced energy bills/reduced carbon footprint – Dirty air puts more of a strain on the HVAC system than clean air. This increased strain forces the system to work harder increasing both energy consumption and your carbon footprint.
4: Reduced odours – Air quality in an office can be negatively affected by food odours from the lunch/break room, by mould and mildew in the ductwork and/or bathrooms and other sources both environmental and manmade. Having your air quality tested, and implementing remedial efforts as a result, can remove odours and further enhance the comfort of yourself and your staff.
If you want to give your staff members a gift they will truly appreciate, have Clean Air UK in to conduct indoor air quality testing and monitoring in Maidstone. Clean air is one of those things that does not require justification and that will pay handsome benefits for all concerned.
