Tampa, FL – In recent years, defilement of the air has significantly impacted the health and hygiene of the population at large. In order to address this issue properly, information is needed on the particulates responsible for affecting the quality moldchart07of air both outdoor as well as indoors. Pollutants vary greatly in their composition, as well as from place to place. Data is required to interpret a correlation between particulates with that of health and hygiene. This information may signify an overall idea about the air that composes an environment and its quality.
Therefore it is essential to have data available to properly manage the local air quality. It is in this context that EDLab has decided to provide Pollen, Mold and Particulate (PMP) count in the ambient air on a daily basis, available for the general public and professionals interested in this endeavor.
Pure Air Control Services through its laboratory will publish the Allergen & Asthma Alert www.pureaircontrols.com on a daily basis Monday through Friday. A team of aerobiologists, under the supervision of Dr. Rajiv Sahay, FIAS, CIAQP (Laboratory Director of EDLab at Pure Air Control Services), will collect and analyze samples with cutting age technology from an air sampling station located at Clearwater, Florida (Tampa Bay Area 27.97° N and 82.76°W)
Each day the Pollen, Mold & Particulate (PMP) counts will be compared to the normal indoor environmental quality (IEQ) guideline. The groupings of PMP are rated on a scale ranging from high, medium or low. High counts of these outdoor air quality pollutants correlate to an elevated rating, while low counts suggest reduced exposure to such allergens.
These same counts can be measured indoors by consumers through Pure Air Control Services, who professionally diagnose indoor environments. Subsequently, viewers, doctors, patients and allergy sufferers can determine the level of air quality and the corresponding effects upon their individual allergy symptoms.
“The EDLab staff is pleased to make this valuable and important aero-allergen information available to the public in the Tampa Bay area. It is important to raise our awareness to outdoor and indoor air quality issues, which affect our health and well-being, and the AAA is contributing to that awareness,” states Dr. Sahay.Particulates 1
