Establishments Servicing the Public IAQ Test
Analysis kit for indoor air quality monitoring in a establishments servicing the public according to regulatory requirements. Test carried out in a certified laboratory.
Indoor air quality is now a public health priority, and IAQ monitoring is now mandatory in some Establishments Servicing the Public, particularly for nurseries, kindergartens, primary and elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, universities and extracurricular activities.
At the same time as the self-assessment :
This action makes it possible to anticipate the need for measurements that will certainly be necessary as part of the follow-up of the action plan. It also makes it possible to lighten and orient the action plan.
As part of the follow-up of the action plan :
This action makes it possible to respond to the need to carry out measures as part of the action plan. It can be a step in the progress of the action plan.
The analysis kit proposed by YOOTEST allows the measurement of the 4 priority pollutants according to regulatory requirements.
Formaldehyde, benzene and perchloroethylene are sampled with passive sensors placed in the room studied for 4.5 consecutive days (from Monday morning to Friday evening). The sensors are then analyzed in the laboratory by chromatography.
Carbon dioxide is measured with an electronic sensor with an infrared detector allowing a measurement every 10 minutes. It is carried out during 4.5 days simultaneously with the sampling of formaldehyde, benzene and perchloroethylene.
The results of the sensor measurements are extracted from the sensor using software.
Two levels of analysis are proposed:
The ESSENTIAL level analysis is focused on the 4 priority pollutants of the regulation namely formaldehyde, benzene, perchloroethylene and carbon dioxide (CO2).
While regulations require testing for CO2, formaldehyde, benzene and perchloroethylene, other substances are of concern for children's health.
The INTEGRAL level analysis includes the 4 priority pollutants of the regulation as well as an extended list of other common indoor air pollutants of concern for children's health.

YOOTEST allows you to test with great accuracy the indoor air quality in an Establishments Servicing the Public.
The measurement of VOCs of concern in indoor air is carried out using passive sensors, which include the media to capture the VOCs.
CO2 measurement is performed with an electronic sensor.
These sensors must be placed in the room to be analyzed during occupancy of the premises over a period of 4.5 consecutive days (Monday morning to Friday evening).
At the end of these 4.5 days, the sensors are returned to the laboratory with the sampling form, using the prepaid envelope provided.
One ERP IAQ kit must be used per room.
Ideally all rooms in the facility (classrooms) should be IAQ tested.
It is also possible to select the rooms to be studied by groups of homogeneous rooms (same furniture, surface area, ventilation and date of renovation).
Alternatively, the study of the questionnaires allows to identify the rooms in which it is necessary to carry out a measurement of indoor air pollution.
