Air Quality Sampling

When you enter a confinement building, you need to be protecting your lungs. Air quality sampling can help you better determine the right personal protective equipment for your situation. You could be encountering ammonia, hydrogen sulfide, carbon dioxide, methane, as well as other biologicals like bacteria, fungal spores, or fecal particals. Once you know what you're dealing with, you can choose the right respirator for the job (see the respirator selection guide for help).
