Monitoring for Hydrogen Sulfide in Homes & Offices

ChemSee’s Hydrogen Sulfide Dosimeter and In-Lab Reading are available for purchase directly through

ChemSee has available an ideal measuring device for the average concentration of H2S in homes, very useful for a concentration range of 0.01 to 10 ppm.

It is estimated that more than 500,000 houses were renovated using sheet rock made in China. It is reported that the materials have been releasing hydrogen sulfide gas, which is inhaled by the occupants of contaminated houses. The presence of traces of hydrogen sulfide in air aggravates the breathing, increases the probability of contracting diseases due to bacteria and viruses, reduces the iron in the blood an compromises certain functions of the liver and kidneys. In addition, hydrogen sulfide tarnishes and corrodes metals as frequently seen on the surfaces of silver and copper. Babies, small children, pregnant women, elderly people and people with breathing problems are particularly sensitive to traces of hydrogen sulfide.

Fortunately, it is very easy to determine if the concentration of hydrogen sulfide in your house is excessive. ChemSee’s H2S-KT1: Hydrogen Sulfide Dosimeter and Electronic Reading allows you to easily establish if you have hydrogen sulfide in your house and to estimate its concentration when extreme exposure may occur.
