is your air clean enough?
Request an air quality assessment
Fill out the form below and request a measurement of your air quality. We will visit you, map the air quality and demonstrate the effect of our air purification. With AerSMASH air purification you will get a healthy living and working environment and products that stay fresh longer.
This is what we will measure
Clean air is healthy air. Below we explain which factors influence the health of the people in your building.
Particulate matter and aerosols
Particulate matter or particle pollution is made up of a mixture of microscopic solids and liquid droplets suspended in air. Almost all human activities produce particulate matter. The smaller the particle, the deeper it enters the body. Ultrafine particles (PM1 and smaller), such as aerosols, end up in the lungs and are especially harmful to people with lung diseases. Even low concentrations of particulate matter are harmful.
Carbon dioxide is a gas that is naturally present in the atmosphere. An excess of CO2 blocks the oxygen uptake in our body. The result is that the body switches to low energy consumption, which leads to fatigue, headaches and loss of concentration. The ideal concentration of CO2 in the air is between 400 and 800 ppm. The limit is set at 1200 ppm.
TVOC is a collective name for a group of hydrocarbons that evaporate easily. These chemicals are found in building materials, cleaning agents and paint, among other things. Short-term exposure causes irritation of eyes and mucous membranes. At high concentrations, health effects on organs cannot be ruled out. Ideal is a value below 500 ppb (parts per billion). Values above 1000 ppb should be avoided
This is the percentage of the maximum amount of water vapor that the air contains at the given temperature and air pressure. A percentage between 40% and 60% is ideal for comfort, but also for virus deactivation. Too much humidity can cause mold to form. Too little humidity (dry air) is unfavourable for the condition of mucous membranes, eyes, nose and throat. It can also lead to a reduced resistance to infections.
The ideal indoor temperature is between 18 and 24˚C. Research shows that workers are most productive at 22˚C. Above 24˚C, productivity decreases and above 26˚C, people lose energy.
