Indoor air quality testing in Cornwall

The air we breathe is constantly changing and not always for the better.

Clean air is important for everyone to avoid respiratory problems such as allergies and asthma.

There are many potential sources of pollutants in indoor environments, including pollen, mold spores, and household chemicals.

Pollutants can also come from outside and enter through open windows or doors.

To help ensure that you and your family are breathing clean air, it’s worth having a professional test your home for common pollutants.

What is the air quality in Cornwall?

The air quality in Cornwall is an issue due to the recent climate change. The trends of temperature and precipitation are interconnected, causing extreme weather events.

Pollution levels are high due to emissions from vehicles, the burning of fossil fuels, and other sources.

Motor vehicle emissions contribute to ground-level ozone production, which can cause bronchitis and asthma attacks in people with preexisting respiratory conditions.

Places with clean and fresh air in Cornwall

There are many places with clean and fresh air in Cornwall.

  • One place with clean and fresh air in Cornwall is the seaside town of St Ives. The town is known for its stunning location on the north coast of Cornwall, with its dramatic cliffs, sheltered coves and long expanses of sand and shingle beach.
  • Additionally, there are many parks in Cornwall that have fresh air, such as Helston’s Victoria Gardens and Truro’s Victoria Gardens. These parks are often filled with people enjoying the outdoors and the fresh air.

What do we test air for?

  • Mold. Mold can be found anywhere and they thrive in moist, humid environments. Mold spores are very small and difficult to see. They can cause respiratory problems and allergic responses upon inhalation and can release toxic substances that may trigger reactions such as asthma attacks. To detect the presence of mold in the air quality, the individual needs to contact their local health department for advice on how to conduct a home or workplace test.

  • Asbestos. Asbestos is a fibrous mineral that has been used widely as insulation and for fire-resistant clothing. It can also be found as a contaminant in building materials due to its ability to withstand heat. Asbestos is a carcinogen, which means it increases the risk of developing diseases, such as lung cancer. Air quality testing for asbestos focuses on the amount of asbestos fibers in the air and whether or not there is a risk for human exposure.

  • Particulate Matter. Particle matter is the sum of all solid and liquid particles suspended in air, many of which are hazardous. This complex mixture includes both organic and inorganic particles. Examples may include mud, soot, smoke, dust, and liquid droplets.

  • Formaldehyde. Formaldehyde is a colorless, flammable, strong-smelling chemical found in building materials and in household products. It is used to produce pressed-wood products, such as particleboard, plywood, and fiberboard; glues, adhesives, and more.

  • Carbon Monoxide. Fuel-burning appliances, garages, and homes with attached garages are far more susceptible to carbon monoxide hazards. CO is commonly found in our homes as a result of fuel-burning appliances and devices in living spaces.

  • Volatile Organic Compounds. Organic compounds that are easily vaporized are known as volatile organic compounds or VOCs. Along with carbon, organic compounds include elements such as hydrogen, oxygen, fluorine, chlorine, bromine, sulfur, or nitrogen.

FAQ

How often should I get my house tested for air quality?2021-12-24T17:24:04+00:00

The air quality in the home should be tested at minimum once annually, but ideally twice or more annually. The best time to test is before major changes like painting, having the carpets professionally cleaned, or doing any other work. This will provide a baseline measurement of what the indoor air is normally like and measure any significant change from it. In doing so, one can detect abnormal changes in indoor air quality.

How does air quality testing work?2021-12-24T17:24:28+00:00

Air quality testing is a process that consists of collecting and analyzing samples from the air. The volume of particles that are collected in these samples will be quantified and categorized to determine whether the level of pollution exceeds acceptable levels. Such particles can include smoke, dust, and pollen among others. These particles can come from many sources such as vehicle exhaust or construction sites.

What is the difference between a particle and a gas?2021-12-24T17:24:53+00:00

A particle is an object which can be seen by the naked eye, for example, the tiny specks in the sky following a fireworks show. A gas is any substance that can’t be seen with the naked eye and occupies space or has molecules in it. The particles are made of atoms which are themselves made up of electrons, protons, and neutrons; while gases are made up of molecules, which are composed of atoms.

What is the difference between a smell and a bad smell?2021-12-24T17:25:23+00:00

A smell is any sensation that stimulates the olfactory epithelium, whereas a bad smell is any smell that causes nausea, dizziness, or other negative sensory responses. A good smell stimulates the olfactory epithelium with sensations such as flowers and spices.

How can I prevent a bad smell in my home?2021-12-24T17:26:14+00:00

The most common way to prevent bad smells in the home is by using containers which air can flow through. This allows for the release of odors without any potential for them to build up.
A second option is to use an exhaust fan or vent which will remove any bad air that builds up inside.
A third option would be to make sure you are regularly cleaning your home, including the trash cans and kitchen sinks.
