How Do You Measure Indoor Air Quality?
Posted on June 20th, 2014
Indoor air quality
can be measured using a special tool called a VOC sensor. These machines detect volatile organic compounds, or harmful substances
, in the air. VOC sensors can detect formaldehyde, carbon monoxide, radon and even the ketones that people emit, among other harmful pollutants.
We use reliable VOC sensors for every inspection we do. We also keep our equipment in top shape to ensure that our clients only receive accurate information. One of the greatest benefits of having a trained professional perform your inspection is that the inspector has experience reading and interpreting the VOC sensor readout. After a measurement is taken, you and your inspector can work together to create a plan of action to ensure that your home achieves the best possible air quality. We carry some of the best air filters and air purification systems on the market.
