Major reasons for Air Quality Monitoring and Air Testing in India

In line to be the next superpower, India has grown in both Infrastructure and Industrial sector. This growth has compromised the health of the people by increasing the Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in the air, as well as other dangerous free radicals suspending in the air.
Outdoor atmosphere affects the internal air quality, making the employees in the workplace and people at home suffer from many diseases and disorders coming to light. This makes the air testing utmost important for a regular Ambient Air Quality Testing and Indoor Air Testing Quality in India as well as around the globe.

Air Quality Tests that should be conducted


Air Quality Analysis/Air testing forms an integral part of the Environmental Testing and Monitoring services. Under Air Quality Testing we have –

air conditionerIndoor Air Quality (IAQ) Analysis

To test and improve the air quality inside the office premises and / or the residence areas. This helps in identifying the source of the pollution, its levels and measures to reduce the same.

Ambient air testing

Ambient Air Quality Testing

To estimate the levels of outdoor air pollution, specifically the atmosphere immediately around the workplace or residency in question. Air testing helps in developing precautionary measures and indirectly helps to improve the IAQ.

Carbon Dioxide, Carbon Monoxide, Nitrogen Dioxide, Sulphur Dioxide, Total Volatile Organic Compounds, Relative Humidity, Hydrogen Sulphide Temperature, Oxygen, Ozone, Ammonia, Formaldehyde and PM10 and PM2.5.
