Indoor Air Quality Testing

Are you suffering from allergies, asthma, eye, nose, throat or skin irritations, headaches, reoccurring bronchitis or nausea. Have you just moved into a new home or one that has been recently renovated? Chemicals such as formaldehyde that leach from building materials, insulation, glues and engineered wood products, pesticides and other common indoor pollutants such as dust, dustmites, mould and cleaning products can all affect the quality of the air we breathe. Contaminants such as Volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) which then offgas from paint, cabinetry and new furniture can lead to health problems listed above. Indoor air quality testing can be completed with the use of appropriate equipment and solutions and alternatives recommended.

 

We offer practical solutions and healthy alternatives. Small changes can make an incredible difference! For more information contact your Healthy Home Environment Consultant Narelle at Healthy Living Spaces today to organise a consultation.

  • Incredibly toddlers can put things in their mouth up to 76 times per hour and may ingest up to 10 grams of dust per day
  • Every day around 17,000 litres of air pass through our lungs
  • The CSIRO estimates that the cost of poor indoor air quality in Australia may be as high as $12 billon per year (SOK, 2001).
  • More than 80,000 chemicals have been developed and released into the global environment since the 1950’s. Today the World Health Organisation (WHO) attributes 36% of all childhood deaths to environmental causes.
  • Most European countries don’t chlorinate their water supply and about 97 percent of countries don’t fluoridate their water supply because of health concerns.
  • Use indoor plants to reduce VOC’s from your indoor air.
  • Perfumes may contain many chemicals, one being phthalates which mimic the hormone oestrogen which has been linked to breast cancer.
  • Choose safer plastics such as polypropylene (PP), high density polyethylene (HDPE) and low density polyethylene (LDPE). Never reuse plastic drink bottles and definitely don’t leave them in cars in the hot sun.
  • Waiting for high levels of scientific proof before taking action on electromagnetic fields can lead to a very high health and economic costs, as was the case with asbestos, leaded petrol and tobacco (Council of Europe, 2011)
