Speck air quality monitors are now available in 14 different Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh locations! Speck is an air quality monitor that detects fine particulate matter in your indoor environment and informs you about trends and changes in particle concentration.

The Speck can be used to test whether your vacuum exudes particles, whether your cleaning products are making your employees cough, whether your kitchen range hood exhausts to your child’s bedroom and more.

Check out a Speck from your local library and join our study to help us empower more people to explore and improve their indoor air quality. Find out how below. 

Participation is simple:

  1. Check out a Speck from the library
  2. Fill out a short survey BEFORE taking your Speck home
  3. Complete a brief final survey when you return the Speck

Joining the study also makes you eligible to win 1 of 5 free Specks!

Already checked out a Speck? You can still participate!

I suffer from allergies and asthma, while my husband has intense allergies requiring shots over the past 2 years. I stay home taking care of my 21 month old daughter and am concerned about the indoor air quality of our home, despite major lifestyle changes we have made over the years. I am very interested in the work you are doing to help monitor and improve our health and quality of life.
Thank you for doing the research on air quality control in home,work place. This information will help control individual on their environment and choice to make changes on cleaning products.
