Indoor Air Quality and Microbial Contamination

Environmental Health and Safety can conduct indoor air quality (IAQ) investigations as requested. The investigations may include industrial hygiene monitoring:

  • Taking measurements of carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide.
  • Dry bulb temperature.
  • Relative humidity.
  • Illumination (lighting).
  • Airborne dust.
  • Observing mechanical ventilation.

There is no cost to the requesting department for the basic IAQ investigation.

Air, bulk and water samples for microbial make-up (i.e., fungi and bacteria) can also be collected and analyzed at an additional cost to the requesting department. A summary report can be prepared. Contact our department for further assistance.
