What does Airthinx monitor?
Dust, fungi, bacteria, pollen, & diesel exhaust are common examples of Particulate Matter. The smaller these particles are, the worse they are for your health, especially because they are invisible. The smallest of the Particulates, PM 1.0 lingers in the atmosphere for weeks at a time, is freely transported by air currents, and is most likely to cause an infection by the bacteria that is released from just a single cough or sneeze.
As more people occupy a space, carbon dioxide levels spike, increasing the likelihood of sleepiness, distraction, lethargy and affecting productivity, concentration, and work performance.
TVOC’s, total volatile organic compounds, have been categorized as carcinogens by the EPA. There are up to 300 different VOC’s with emissions indoors now equal to what comes out of the tailpipe of your car. Spraying any type of cleaning agent will cause VOC’s to spike.
Formaldehyde is a naturally occurring organic compound with the formula CH2O (H-CHO). The dangerous gas is commonly emitted by wooden painted surfaces, fabrics, carpets, adhesives & glues in furniture, and building materials like pressed wood & particle board.
Optimal temperature conditions range between 68 and 74 degrees Fahrenheit. Anything over can result in mental fatigue causing diminished reaction times and delayed information processing.
Differences in barometric pressure can increase the flow of infectious particles. Certain rooms within a healthcare building or industrial space should be positively or negatively pressurized with respect to surrounding areas. Positively pressurized rooms are usually designed to protect a patient, clean supplies, or equipment within the room. Negative pressure is used to contain airborne contaminants within a room.
Exposure to hazardous conditions resulting from building decay, water damage, poor plumbing, and legacy pollutants are exacerbated by high levels of humidity. Spikes in humidity may result in mold growth on any substance which can happen within 48 hours of contact with a surface, triggering asthma, respiratory symptoms, irritation of the eyes, nose & mouth.
