Element carries out Indoor Air Quality Testing on a diverse range of industrial, manufacturing and commercial premises to maintain the safety, health, comfort, and wellbeing of occupants.
Pollutants and odors in the air can cause ill-health, irritation, and other adverse reactions, whether at home, in public, or in the workplace. These come in a variety of forms including gases, vapors, fumes, dusts, fine particulates, bioaerosols, and many more. Using our diverse range of sampling equipment, instruments and analyzers we develop sampling strategies to meet your needs.
Indoor air quality testing
We measure air pollutants to ensure that you are compliant with health and safety standards including Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations. Compliance to these and environmental standards such as LEED, BREEAM, and WELL will demonstrate your commitment to maintaining environmentally sustainable buildings for occupants.
If dangerous levels of air pollutants are detected, air quality assessment can also help determine a remedial solution.
Indoor air quality is critical to the health, comfort, and wellbeing of occupants. Pollutants in the air can cause ill-health, irritation, and other adverse reactions to smells or odors, whether at home, in public, or the workplace.
