V.O.C. Air Quality 2019 Full Report

Air Quality Certification

IAQ Diagnostics And SGS Galson

Indoor Air Quality Diagnostics, Inc. is an industry leader when it comes to indoor environmental assessments and infrared evaluations, and has been providing a variety of services for many years and is a proud member of the Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA). Coupled with SGS Galson, which is the world leader in industrial hygiene analysis and monitoring solutions, we knew we had the right team of experts to test and examine the indoor air quality of our infrared saunas.

Executive Summary

One (1) sample was collected within each sauna (Corner Hemlock & Red Cedar) before the sauna is operated to document VOC’s during ambient nonoperating (‘cold’) conditions. One (1) sample was then collected within each sauna while the sauna is operated at 135° Fahrenheit to document the VOC during operating conditions. One (1) sample was also collected outside of the saunas to document the general background VOC levels within the Master Spa showroom that could have an impact on the VOC levels within the saunas. The sampling was done using a Summa canister to draw air into the canister under the influence of the canister’s vacuum. This sample is a direct measure of the indoor air concentration near the sampling device during the sampling period. Each canister was fitted with a flow controller that provides grab (short-term) sample. The samples were sent overnight express to SGS Galson Labs, an American Industrial Hygiene Association (‘AIHA’) accredited laboratory, for analysis using the appropriate EPA methodology for the targeted VOC’s. The overall results were outstanding. The data collected from within the two saunas at 135 degrees Fahrenheit, showed better air quality than within the showroom and the outside air quality sample . Our saunas maintain the highest air quality standards. Results show that concerning compounds are virtually nonexistent in the air quality of our saunas. We set the standard for a virtually toxin free infrared sauna. We provide our customers with not only the best quality, but also the highest standards in air quality. Rest assured when you are relaxing and rejuvenating in your Good Health Sauna, you are detoxifying the body of unwanted impurities.

V.O.C. Test Results

The results of the air quality testing performed by IAQ Diagnostics and analyzed by SGS Galson were better than we could have imagined. A sample of the air inside our infrared saunas, a sample of the air inside our showroom, and a sample of the air outside were all collected and sent off for examination. It was concluded that the air sample for inside of Good Health Saunas infrared saunas was better than both the air quality from our showroom and outside, therefore proving that our infrared saunas maintain the highest air quality standards in the industry.

Why Is Air Quality Important?

Good air quality is comparable to clean water, meaning that it is vital in maintaining the best possible health and well-being of individuals. Preserving the integrity of high-quality air can help with avoiding common side effects that come from polluted air, including allergies, coughing, headaches, sneezing, asthma, and running nose. According to Greentumble, the average person inhales up to 14,000 liters of air every day, so if you’re looking for a place to take that “breath of fresh air”, consider stepping inside a Good Health Saunas infrared sauna instead of on your backyard patio outside.
