Various particulates which have been evaluated include fiberglass, total dust, total fibers, settled dust, crystalline silica, LEED IAQ Testing, and bioaerosols.
Carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, temperature, and relative humidity levels are measured using direct reading data loggers for up to two weeks to evaluate the ventilation system in relationship to the ASHRAE guidelines.
