Choose the right test



Wondering which indoor air quality diagnostics and analyses are best suited to your needs?


Exposure of a pregnant woman to products carcinogenic, mutagenic, teratogenic and toendocrine disruptors exposes the fetus to developmental disorders both physiologically and mentally.

We recommend that you perform the following analyses:

Contrary to popular belief, children's bedrooms are usually the most polluted rooms in the house. New furniture and bedding, decorative work, play mats, plastic toys... expose young children to many carcinogenic chemicals, to endocrine disruptors and can induce developmental disorders both physiologically and mentally. These molecules promote the development of respiratory diseases such as asthma and allergies.

We recommend that you perform the following analyses:

Dust mites allergens are naturally present in the indoor environment and are the cause of half of all respiratory allergies. It is therefore advisable to control their level of presence in dust because it is a triggering factor for allergies or asthma attacks.

The presence of formaldehyde is an aggravating and triggering factor in asthma and allergies.

We recommend that you perform the following analyses:

Animals are often treated against fleas and ticks with insecticides that spread inside the house. These molecules are usually endocrine disruptors and exposure to these toxic substances can present health risks for the occupants as well as their pets.

We advise you to perform a INTEGRAL DOMESTIC PESTICIDES TEST.

Residual moisture in the walls and the ambient temperature create favourable conditions for mould growth. This fungal contamination pollutes the indoor air with irritating odours, producesallergens and extremely harmful mycotoxins.

We advise you to perform a MOLDS TEST.

Ideally:you should do a test before the renovation works to avoid staying in a contaminated environment during the works and another test after the works to control theabsence of health risk, indicating that the contamination has been treated effectively..

 At the very least: a test should be carried out after the work to check for absence of health risk, a sign that the contamination has been treated effectively.

The combustion of the materials produces smoke and soot containing polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), which permanently contaminate the burning room but also the adjacent rooms.

These PAHs such as benzo[a]pyrene are proven human carcinogens at low doses of exposure.

We recommend that you perform a INTEGRAL FIRE DAMAGES TEST.

Ideally: you should perform a test before the renovation works to avoid staying in a contaminated environment during the works and another test after the works to control thethe absence of health risk, a sign that the contamination has been effectively treated..

 At the very least: a test should be carried out after the work to check for absence of health risk, a sign that the contamination has been treated effectively.

Paints, varnishes and decorative materials contain many solvents that can cause health problems such as headaches, respiratory tract irritation, neurological disorders or even cancers.

We advise you to use a INTEGRAL AIR QUALITY TEST.

Building insulation produces containment conditions that are conducive to the accumulation of volatile pollutants in indoor air to levels hazardous to health.

We recommend that you use a INTEGRAL AIR QUALITY TEST.

In addition, the insulation of buildings can also create an increase in ambient humidity favourable to the development of moulds..

In this case it is therefore also advisable to use a MOLDS TEST.

These pests are treated, by professionals or individuals, with insecticides or fungicides. The treatments can contaminate the indoor environment at a high level and for a long time with pesticides.

By destination these molecules are highly toxic and can cause cancers, neurological disorders and fertility and are endocrine disruptors.

We advise you to use a INTEGRAL DOMESTIC PESTICIDE TEST.

Lead-containing paints and materials did not completely disappear from trade until 1993. Lead is a heavy metal that causes severe toxicity (lead poisoning) and health effects at low doses of exposure.

We recommend that you perform a TEST PLOMB.

Traffic generates fine particles, benzene and its derivatives, and hydrocarbons in the air. Indoor air pollution by these toxic chemicals and carcinogens is often significant in urban areas and these pollutants are added to those present in homes.

We recommend that you do a BENZENE & HYDROCARBONS TEST.

The use of pesticides for crop treatment results in significant air pollution and lasting contamination of the indoor environment of people living in the vicinity of farms.

We advise you to use a INTEGRAL AGRICULTURAL PESTICIDE TEST.

(For certain types of specific crops there are targeted versions of the pesticides used on them: vines, cereals, orchards).

The use of pesticides for the treatment of vines produces significant air pollution and lasting contamination of the indoor environment of local residents.

We recommend that you use a AGRICULTURAL PESTICIDE TEST - VINES.

The use of pesticides for the treatment of cereals results in significant air pollution and lasting contamination of the indoor environment for local residents.

We recommend that you use a AGRICULTURAL PESTICIDE TEST - CEREALS.

The use of pesticides for orchard treatment produces significant air pollution and lasting contamination of the indoor environment of local residents.

We recommend that you use a AGRICULTURAL PESTICIDE TEST - ORCHARDS.

Fossil fuels (fuel oil, gasoil...) contain benzene and hydrocarbons which are carcinogenic substances.

Starting a car in a garage produces a large amount of benzene and hydrocarbons.

A fuel oil tank emits benzene and hydrocarbon vapours which diffuse into the building and pollute the indoor air.

We recommend that you use a BENZENE & HYDROCARBONS TEST.

Burning organic materials such as firewood, pellets, granules or firelogs produces benzene and other toxic aromatic compounds.

Ces substances peuvent avoir des effets cancérigènes dès les faibles doses d’exposition.

We advise you to use a BENZENE & HYDROCARBONS TEST.

Burning candles (scented or unscented), incense or Armenian paper produces significant amounts of formaldehyde and benzene , two proven human carcinogens of particular concern in the indoor air of homes and offices.

We recommend that you use a INTEGRAL INDOOR AIR QUALITY TEST.

Non-raw wood furniture generally contains large amounts of formaldehyde.

Formaldehyde is irritating to the respiratory tract. It is a sensitizing and aggravating factor for respiratory allergies such as asthma.

Formaldehyde is classified as proven carcinogenic to humans.

We recommend that you use a FORMALDEHYDE TEST.

We advise you to use a INDOOR AIR QUALITÉ TEST because it allows the measurement of specific molecules, VOCs, present in household products and irritating to the respiratory tract.

The cathedral contained hundreds of tons of lead which were dispersed with the fumes of the fire in the direct surroundings of the monument and over tens of kilometers to the west of Paris.

Lead is a heavy metal that causes serious toxications (lead poisoning) and has health effects at low doses of exposure.

We advise you to carry out a LEAD TEST.
