zNose® efficiently tested an urban dwelling and its result displayed the presence of organic compounds associated with urine odors inside and around the dwelling. Ambient air throughout the dwelling was evaluated by testing in multiple locations within each room as well as within air ducts. Over 150 ambient air measurements were performed within the house (on-site) and grab-samples were also tested at an off-site laboratory. In bathrooms where toilets had been removed, emissions from sewer pipes were tested as potential emission sources. This technical paper talks about the following topics:
