Indoor Air Quality – Home Test Kits – Hydrogen Sulphide(H2S) & VOC’s

H2S home test kit.

A very simple to use test kit, for you to use in the home. The equipment is deployed in your home and is allowed to sit and take in gases for diffusion, for between 2 and 4 weeks.

After which time it is sent to the laboratory where it is analysed for hydrogen sulphide. The lod ( limit of detection is of the order of the low parts per billion)

H2S Has an unpleasant “rotten egg” smell, usually when the concentration is at or above the 5 micrograms/m3. The WHO (World Health Organisation) Sets a limit of 7micrograms /m3 as a 30min average. Above this level authorities would expect to receive significant complaints

H2S

Can cause :

  • eye irritation
  • headaches
  • Nausea

The lowest adverse effect of H2S as reported by the WHO, tends to occur in concentrations above 15mg/m3 ( around) 10 ppm)
