Humans spend, on average, more than 80 % of their days indoors. In addition to flats and offices, means of transport and public buildings also count as indoor spaces.
Hence, the indoor climate significantly affects our wellbeing. In particular, burdened indoor spaces are a potential hazard for sensitive persons such as sick people, toddlers, and pregnant women.
Hence, it is the purpose of indoor space investigations to identify hazardous materials and other chemicals in order to locate the sources of contamination. Only then can they either be specifically removed or the contamination can be, at least, specifically reduced.
For example, PiCA Prüfinstitut Chemische Analytik GmbH tests
- dust for the presence of undesirable chemicals
- air samples for the presence of solvents
- wood for the presence of wood preservatives
- building materials and other materials in order to find sources of contamination
- swipe samples for the fogging parameters described in specialist literature
