Ambient Air

The Importance of Ambient Air Testing

Ambient air should be tested to determine the presence of various chemicals and substances that may be damaging to human health. Ambient air testing can detect volatile and semivolatile organic compounds, metals, dioxins, pesticides, and particulates. The health effect that these substances can have is broad, and they could cause health problems of various kinds. These chemicals can enter the air in a number of ways and could be continuously released from soil or other environmental features. Air quality can be maintained through regular testing and addressing any problems with unwanted particulates.

New methods of ambient air quality testing are evolving all the time. Torrent Laboratory makes sure to keep up with the latest technologies and testing methods to provide the best results to clients.
