Pristine Inspections & Testing of Champaign, Illinois, offers indoor air quality and formaldehyde testing for nearby businesses and residences.

Indoor Air Quality Testing

Indoor pollution sources that release gases or particles into the air are the primary cause of indoor air quality problems in homes. Inadequate ventilation can increase indoor pollutant levels by not bringing in enough outdoor air to dilute emissions from indoor sources and by not carrying indoor air pollutants out of the home. High temperature and humidity levels can also increase concentrations of some pollutants. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are gases that are given off by a number of indoor sources. Concentrations of most volatile organic compounds are higher in indoor air than outdoor air.

Pristine Inspections & Testing can check for 400+ airborne chemicals (Total Volatile Organic Compounds) and hidden mold growth (Total Mold Volatile Organic Compounds) with a single air sample, TVOC/TMVOC test. It identifies solvents possibly used in Meth labs, sulfur compounds found in contaminated Chinese drywall, pollutants that could make you sick.

Formaldehyde

Formaldehyde, a colorless, pungent-smelling gas, can cause watery eyes, burning sensations in the eyes and throat, nausea, and difficulty in breathing in some humans exposed at elevated levels (above 0.1 parts per million). High concentrations may trigger attacks in people with asthma. There is evidence that some people can develop sensitivity to formaldehyde. It has also shown to cause cancer in animals and may cause cancer in humans. The test for Formaldehyde runs for 20-30 minutes.
