Air Quality Testing is Easier with Torrent Laboratory: Know the Approach

Recent changes to our climate and environment, scares about chemicals, household molds, radon and carbon monoxide, as well as the COVID-19 pandemic have all of us thinking about the quality of the air we breathe. What substances, particulates and even chemicals are we inhaling from an environment that is under rapid transformation? We want to know is, “How do we know if the air we breathe at home is safe?”

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), more than 7 million people die each year because of exposure to indoor and outdoor air pollution. And of those 7 million premature deaths 3.8 million of them are caused by exposure to indoor air pollution. Torrent Laboratory is a leader in home Air Quality Testing services.

Torrent Laboratory’s home air quality tests use the most advanced technologies and testing methods such as, NIOSH, OSHA, ASTM and EPA Air Compendium Methods (TO, CO, IO), to provide superior results for our clients. Our highly qualified and experienced scientists use the most up-to-date methods to identify particulates, volatile and semivolatile organic compounds, metals, pesticides or dioxins in your environment and provide swift analytical results.

Torrent Laboratory experts will assist you in ensuring that your home air quality meets or exceeds all necessary standards. We will also tailor our services and reports to meet your specific needs. Best of all Torrent Laboratory home air quality testing is certified, fast and accurate.

So what is the Torrent Laboratory Approach to solving home air quality problems?

First, we introduce you to a Home Air Quality Test. We provide options:


Torrent Lab provides 6L and 1L sampling canisters for soil vapor and ambient air analysis. If you are employing SIM (low-level analysis), we recommend 6L sampling canisters so that we can offer you the lowest possible reporting limits. Torrent Lab can provide SIM analysis with 1L sampling canisters, as well. If you are required SIM (lowest possible RLs), we strongly recommend using self-certified canisters for your sampling equipment. Torrent Lab provides self- and batch-certified canisters.

Tedlar® and other bags

When you need air sampling bags for convenience or non-regulatory testing, we provide Tedlar® Air Sampling Bags in a variety of sizes. If you are sampling for sulfur compounds, we recommend using inert canisters or regular Teflon-based bags or inert foil-based bags.
By following simple sampling instructions and returning the test samples to our lab, we will quickly and accurately provide you with an analysis of your home air quality problems. We will provide you with advice on how to improve your air quality and if needed can provide you with a home air quality monitor for ongoing testing and your own peace of mind.

Tips for the Homeowner:

Let Torrent Laboratory help you clear the air in your home with quality air testing so you can safely identify necessary needs and quickly make improvements. When you engage an industry leader like Torrent you will get the expertise you need to create a healthier environment through higher home air quality.

Another tip regards monitoring the humidity in your home environment. Our tests will alert you if you have humidity problems that could exacerbate home air quality problems. Controlling home moisture can be a simple fix with long lasting health effects.

Finally, if questions or home air quality problems persist, contact us about a home air quality monitor that can be installed in your home and give you regular feedback regarding your home air quality concerns.
