Regulation in the field of indoor air quality changes. From 2015, local authorities will monitor and check the quality of indoor air in some public buildings (public institutions), especially nurseries and kindergartens. The regulation covers two chemical molecules, formaldehyde and benzene, as well as containment (CO2 or carbon dioxide). The indoor air pollution is not limited to two chemical molecules, and health disorders including allergies and asthma may result from pollution by microbial agents such as mold and bacteria.
The control of the microbiological quality of indoor air is achieved with the air treatment systems when building has this type of ventilation. Microbiological pollution of indoor air can come from either the degradation of building materials, presence of mold on the walls, or by the uncommun input of fresh air, from either naturally (air vent, sashes , doors and windows…) either mechanically (blower port). The air in a room is then responsible of microbial contaminants. Microbiological control of indoor air is performed by a qualified technician who takes samples at strategic points in the understanding of indoor air pollution.
The mold is also a pollutant of the air present in the ductwork. Molds are dispersed in indoor air resulting in a degradation of the quality of indoor air in offices or production areas.
Our expertise in the field of microbiology of air and especially molds allows us to be the independent french leader in the identification and detection of molds.
Conidia’s laboratory is the French leader in mold analysis. After academia, the company has developed its expertise in the field of indoor air quality, building materials including bio-based materials, plant diseases, soils polluted.
