EKO Building Biology provide Indoor Air Quality Testing and VOC testing and sampling to both commercial and residential properties. 

EKO Building Biology VOC or Volatile Organic Compound Testing/Sampling via 2 methods:

  1. Photo-ionisation Detector, which will provide instantaneous readings on site which can give a good indication in parts per million (ppm) or parts per billion (ppb) of the overall exposure levels of total VOCs, however it is limiting in that it cannot differentiate between the differing types of VOCs.

 

  1. Active Sampling, which is used to determine a person’s exposure, levels during their work practices. A pump is attached to the person within their breathing zone that forces air through a sorbent charcoal tube. Active Sampling is accepted by the Australian Standards as being an acceptable method of assessing VOCs and other air contaminants in order to compare them to the Time Weighted Average (TWA). These results will be provided through a NATA accredited Laboratory that uses a spectrometer to analyse the samples.

 

EKO Building Biology will then compare all results againstthe applicable Australian Exposure Standards as set out by NOHSC (National Occupational Health and Safety Commission). Thesestandards are usually in line with the US exposure standards as set out in theACGIH (American Conference of Government and Industrial Hygienists) exposurelimits.
