|Contexte de l'analyse||We spend more than 80% of our time in a closed environment (work, home, transport, etc.). It is therefore important to make sure that there are no toxic compounds in the air we breathe every day.|
|Liste des analyses réalisées||Aldehydes (including formaldehyde) and BTEX (including benzene). Aldehydes are a family of compounds, some of which have recognized toxicity (notably formaldehyde). They are used in many building and cleaning materials and products. BTEX are toxic volatile organic compounds, including Benzene, Toluene, Ethylbenzene and Xylenes.|
We spend more than 80% of our time in a closed environment (work, home, transport, etc.). It is therefore important to make sure that there are no toxic compounds in the air we breathe every day.
BTEX (Benzene, Toluene, Ethylbenzene, Xylenes) : BTEX are compounds mainly linked to a combustion process or to the evaporation of fuels.
Among the BTEX, benzene is a particularly toxic pollutant, since chronic exposure to this compound can lead to health effects, in particular the risk of cancer.
This pollutant can come from multiple internal sources (tobacco smoke, combustion process, building and furnishing materials, DIY and maintenance products, etc.) but also from outside air supplies (traffic, heating, industries, etc.). ).
Nine Aldehydes (Formaldehyde, Acetaldehyde, Propanal, Acrolein, Butyraldehyde, Benzaldehyde, Hexaldehyde, Valeraldehyde, Isovaleraldehyde): Aldehydes are chemical compounds used mainly in paints, varnishes, glues, floor coverings, furniture products (agglomerated wood) , cleaning products, etc. for construction, renovation or cleaning.
Formaldehyde, in particular, is irritating to the eyes, nose and throat. It is also a known human carcinogen.
Formaldehyde is emitted by particle board, particle board (furniture), insulating foam, adhesives, laminate floors, DIY and maintenance products.
