INDOOR AIR QUALITY TESTING SERVICES
Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) has become a major concern for many Americans, as up to 90% of their time is spent indoors, often at home or work. Many of these Americans including those living in the Greater Kansas City Metropolitan Area in both Kansas and Missouri, may be at higher risk of developing health problems from poor indoor air quality.
Fortunately, the experts at Titan Environmental Services understand the causes of sick building syndrome and building related illnesses and can provide practical and cost‐effective solutions for the prevention, identification and resolution (or mitigation) of indoor air quality (IAQ) problems in both your home and/or workplace.
In accordance with the EPA and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, the environmental professionals at Titan will identify the factors affecting indoor air quality, develop an IAQ Profile and then create an IAQ Management Plan to determine the most affective mitigation strategy to reduce and eliminate airborne pollution.
INDOOR AIR QUALITY (IAQ) TESTING SERVICES INCLUDE (BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO)
AIRBORNE PARTICULATE MATTER (OR PARTICLE POLLUTION)
Particulate matter, referred to as PM (or particle pollution), is a complex mixture of solid and/or liquid particles suspended in air and plays a major role in determining Indoor Air Quality. EPA is especially concerned about particles that are 10 micrometers in diameter or smaller because these particles are inhalable and can get deep into your lungs, and some may even get into your bloodstream. People with heart or lung diseases such as coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, and asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), children and older adults may be at greater risk from PM exposure, resulting in a variety of health problems. Indoor PM can be generated through cooking, combustion activities (e.g., burning of candles, use of fireplaces, use of unvented space heaters or kerosene heaters, cigarette smoking, and some hobbies, etc..). Indoor PM can also be of biological origin (e.g., mold, pollen, dander, dust mites, etc.). Indoor PM levels are dependent on several factors including outdoor levels, infiltration, types of ventilation and filtration systems used, indoor sources, and personal activities of occupants. In homes without smoking or other strong particle pollution sources, indoor PM would be expected to be the same as, or lower than, outdoor levels.
Water Quality Testing Services
Water Quality is a critical part of life for everyone, including those living in the Greater Metropolitan Kansas City Area in both Kansas and Missouri. Have you ever considered that the water you use to drink, cook and bathe with could be contaminated with harmful chemicals and other pollutants? Whether your water supply comes from the city you live in or from your own well, we all have some level of contamination in our water. While several factors can prevent the water you use and consume from being as fresh and clean as possible, it’s almost impossible to know exactly what’s in your water, and at what levels, without a water test. It’s bad enough to be able to see, smell, or taste a contaminant. But what if your water looks, smells, and tastes just fine — is it? Not necessarily.
