What are contaminants?


The EPA (United States Environmental Protection Agency) states that: “Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) refers to the air quality within and around buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of building occupants. Understanding and controlling common pollutants indoors can help reduce your risk of indoor health concerns.” Contaminants or pollutants cause the air you breathe to become unhealthy. They can cause both immediate and long-term effects on you and your family’s health and come from a range of sources. Ventilation, inhabitants, use of space and household items all contribute to Indoor Air Quality.

Monitor Indoor Air Quality

Airthings believes everyone should care about the air they breathe. We create easy to use Indoor Air Quality monitors for homes, schools, offices, and all other indoor spaces to help people take control of the air they breathe. Selected products measure radon, a radioactive gas that accumulates in homes and buildings, and is the number one cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. The Airthings Wave Plus measures CO2, TVOCs, humidity and more, giving you full control of your Indoor Air Quality.


Decrease exposure to this radioactive gas that accumulates in buildings and homes. It is the number one cause of lung cancer among non-smokers but can be managed with continuous monitoring.
