PM1 PM2.5 PM10
Dust, fungi, bacteria, pollen, & diesel exhaust are common examples of Particulate Matter. The smaller these particles are, the worse they are for your health, especially because they are invisible. PM10 is ⅕ the size of a single strand of human hair. Particulate less than 2.5 microns in diameter lodge deep inside the lungs and blood stream. PM 1, the smallest of the Particulates, linger in the atmosphere for weeks at a time, are freely transported by air currents, and are most likely to cause infection by bacteria released by just a single cough or sneeze.
VOCs, volatile organic compounds, are cancer-causing chemicals released by cleaning agents. According to the World Health Organization, optimal VOC levels are lower than 300 ppm.
Optimal relative humidity is between 30% to 60%. Exposure to conditions from building decay, water damage, poor plumbing and legacy pollutants are exacerbated by high humidity. Mold, which can grow as quickly as 48 hours in in high humid conditions, triggers asthma, respiratory symptoms, irritation of the eyes, nose and mouth.
Optimal temperature is between 70 and 75 degrees fahrenheit, Anything less than 70 can result in feeling chilled and anything over 75 can result in feeling sticky
During an 8 hour day, the standard exposure rate to carbon dioxide is 5000 ppm (part per million). As more people occupy a space, carbon dioxide levels spike, increasing the likelihood of sleepiness, distraction, lethargy and affecting productivity, concentration, and work performance.
Formaldehyde is a naturally occurring organic compound with the formula CH2O (H-CHO). It is the simplest of the aldehydes (R-CHO) and is also known by its systematic name methanal. The common name of this substance comes from its similarity and relation to formic acid. It is a very dangerous gas that gets emitted by wooden painted surfaces or carpets.
Atmospheric pressure, sometimes also called barometric pressure, is the pressure within the atmosphere of Earth (or that of another planet). In most circumstances atmospheric pressure is closely approximated by the hydrostatic pressure caused by the weight of air above the measurement point.
