Understanding pollution & improving indoor air quality

We often neglect the importance of indoor air quality in Hong Kong as we all live busy lives in a tightly-packed city. However, did you know that indoor air pollution can be as much as 200-500% worse than outdoor air pollution?

Indoor air pollution is considered one of the five most important risks that can negatively harm our health and well-being, therefore more and more people and businesses are seeking professional IAQ testing services nowadays.

The human body breathes up to approximately 22,000 times a day, which means that we consistently inhale approximately 45,000-75,000 contaminated particles per breath, such as:


  • Dust mites, microorganisms, pet dander, pollen
  • Smoke, dangerous bacteria, viruses, molds, fungi.
  • Deadly chemicals, household cleaning products and pesticides,
  • Ammonia, alcohol, formaldehyde…etc.

Around us, thousands of different types of pollutants constantly fill the air that surround us, especially in poor indoor air quality environments. Although we can’t see them, they do inevitably cause a variety of serious pollution problems and effects in any indoor environment. Over a long period of inhaling these toxic substances into our bodies, various diseases will arise as a result. Is it time to seek the help of a professional IAQ testing company?

We can provide IAQ testing services in HK. Our IAQ company uses high-tech class I medical laser detector meters during IAQ test to collect samples of pollutants in the air to assess the indoor air quality immediately through our IAQ test for HK homes and workplaces.

Consider this, the number of pollutants in the air can range from 0.3 microns to 5 microns (the diameter of human hair is about 70 microns), and the finest, suspended particles with a diameter of 2.5 microns. When the indoor air pollution level index revealed by an IAQ test is high enough, we will even see haze outdoors when we breathe. These types of pollutants within poor indoor air quality will accumulate over time in the trachea and lungs, carrying heavy metals, microplastics and carcinogens inside us, then as the blood circulates throughout our bodies, it can cause cardiovascular and circulatory diseases as a result, which will undoubtedly seriously harm our health, as well as the health of the those with us.

However, the most terrifying type of air pollutants actually come from the most subtle and invisible COVID-19 killer-virus (the new coronavirus is about 0.1 micron). The finer the pollutants, the harder they can be effectively captured. Although we cannot see them with our eyes, these pollutants are proven to be able to cause fatal infections or serious diseases over time. This can be seen as the ultimate culprit of many commonly seen diseases in our tightly-packed city lives, making improving indoor air quality in Hong Kong a top priority for many homes and businesses. Start tackling the problem today with the help of our IAQ testing company.

Generally speaking, electric purifiers can only process suspended particles of 2.5 microns. Once the indoor air is assessed through IAQ testing services to be contaminated with different types of viruses and pollutants, high-efficiency medical-grade air sterilizers (which can treat pollutants of less than 0.1 microns) must be used to effectively improve the indoor air quality and to reduce the pollution.

Indoor Air Quality Monitor Services – FAQs

Our indoor air quality monitor services in Hong Kong comprise a holistic process of collecting continuous data on the gases, chemicals, and particles that are present in the air. The ultimate objective of the IAQ test HK process is to identify problem areas and make necessary adjustments. These services carried out by a professional IAQ testing company are a prerequisite for facility managers, building owners, and technicians to reduce the risk of airborne diseases and promote the wellbeing of occupants.

Some of the common causes that call for indoor air quality monitor services are as follows:

  • Lack of proper ventilation or contaminated air entering the living space.
  • Poor maintenance of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems.
  • Moisture damage due to flooding, leakage, and high humidity.
  • Remodeling or construction activities undertaken by occupants.
  • Mold growth due to high humidity.
  • Radon formation due to the presence of uranium in the soil.

Buildings today have an airtight construction in an attempt to save energy. Traditionally, storm windows, caulking, insulation, and weather stripping have been some of the ways in which homes prevent air from escaping. However, such a design can cause the air to become toxic because pollutants don’t get a chance to leave the space. Over time, these pollutants can cause serious health problems to occupants. The best bet would be to call for indoor air quality monitor services by our IAQ company to detect the cause behind indoor air pollution.

Essentially, indoor air pollutants are classified into three types: particulates, microorganisms, and toxins (gases). Particulates include pollen, dust, dust mites, carpet fibers, lint, and pet dander. Microorganisms include viruses, fungi, bacteria, mold, influenza, and germs. Lastly, toxins include hazardous gases, such as formaldehyde, benzene chemical vapors, paint, carbon monoxide, pesticides, pet odors, ozone, smoke, cleaning vapors, and carpet fumes. By conducting thorough IAQ testing services, these pollutants can be identified.

There are countless sources of indoor air pollutants, but the most obvious ones are cleaning products, pesticides, and other chemicals that are used in homes. However, there are also some sources of pollutants that are not very obvious, but they do contribute towards the degradation of indoor air quality. These include bathing, cooking, and heating. It’s crucial that you follow the necessary steps after an IAQ test to reduce the level of air pollutants in your home. Going for indoor air quality monitor services carried out by our IAQ company can truly make a huge difference by nipping the problem at the bud.

It is not always easy to determine the pollutant(s) until and unless someone is taken ill in the house, or a thorough IAQ test in HK has been conducted. Some of the indoor air pollutants are undetectable to our senses. For example, not everyone can smell the odor of gas. The symptoms also are unclear and appear much later, thereby making it even harder to zero down on a specific cause. However, some of the common symptoms that you should look out for are guttural irritation, headaches, tiredness, dizziness, an itchy nose, and nausea. In some cases, more severe symptoms like asthma and breathing disorders become more opportunistic in people who experienced protracted exposure to indoor air pollutants. Nonetheless, the sooner you call for indoor air quality monitor services in Hong Kong, the sooner you will be able to eliminate the problem.

As an IAQ test services company, we track the Air Quality Index (AQI) using sensor technology, which helps our IAQ Hong Kong company assess the overall condition of the indoor air quality and identify common pollutants that affect people’s health. Some of the pollutants that our indoor air quality monitor services can identify are volatile organic compounds (VOCs), particulate matter (PM2.5 and PM10), carbon dioxide (CO2), and many others. During an IAQ test, we also consider humidity and temperature as critical assessment parameters so that our IAQ company can get to the depths of any issue.

The basis of our IAQ Hong Kong company’s sensor technology is microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), which makes it possible to measure the particles in the air. Our sensors translate the concentration of molecules of various substances in the air along a gradient. Typically, IoT devices use 0–5-volt signals, where “0” is the lowest and “5” is the highest possible measurement.

Our IAQ company will calibrate our sensor to the finest increments of that output, meaning it can relay actual air conditions to assess indoor air quality in Hong Kong. Our sensor technology is affordable and can be placed anywhere in your establishment, meaning you can quickly and easily deploy them during an IAQ test.
