Testing Homes & Workplaces for Chemical Compounds
Many chemical compounds can contribute to unhealthy or dangerous indoor air quality, and it can be unclear where or what the direct source may be. American Environmental Group has the capability to perform testing for more than 65 compounds commonly found in homes and workplaces. Our Environmental Technicians utilize one instrument and sampling device to test for an array of chemicals and provide you with our findings immediately, as well as deliver lab-confirmed results quickly, often within 24-48 hours.
Common Chemicals Affecting Air Quality
American Environmental Group routinely works with architects, property owners and managers, healthcare facility managers, engineers, and others to determine the safety of indoor air quality.
Our Chemical Surveys can test for dozens of compounds, such as:
- Formaldehyde – Found in many new building materials, such as carpeting, press wood products like particle board and plywood paneling, paints, adhesives, floor finishes, and varnishes, this chemical can have toxic effects on the nasal cavities, throat, and gastrointestinal tract when inhaled or ingested.
- Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) – When released by paints, cleaners, adhesives, copy machines, printers, or other sources, these compounds can lead to headaches, dizziness, and eye, nose and throat irritation.
- Particulate Matter – Allergic reactions such as red, itchy eyes and runny nose can result from exposure to this compound found in ventilation systems or from nearby construction.
- Carbon Monoxide – This inhibits oxygen intake in the body and can lead to illness and even death if not remedied.
- Carbon Dioxide – Inadequate fresh air or poor ventilation design can lead to an overabundance of carbon dioxide, which can cause headaches, fatigue, and stuffiness.
Our Environmental Technicians will test for an extensive list of chemicals and help you to understand the results and what can be done. Contact us to learn more about our environmental consulting services and indoor air quality solutions.
