VOC Testing

Why VOC testing

Professional VOC testing is important for monitoring the quality of indoor air in homes and businesses. VOCs, or volatile organic compounds, are dangerous chemical compounds found in many everyday items such as paint, cleaning supplies, carpets, furniture, and building materials.

Exposure to these VOCs can result in short-term health effects such as headaches, nausea, and eye irritation. Long-term exposure can lead to more serious health issues such as cancer or respiratory problems. We help you identify which products may be hazardous and allow for corrective action to be taken to reduce the presence of these potentially harmful chemicals.
