Testing Indoor Air Quality
Air isn't as light as people think.
It is pushing on your skin right now with up to 15 pounds of pressure per square inch, a weight so light you can not feel it. Your lungs feel it, especially when it's bogged down with toxins. And while we tend to think of air pollution as an outdoor threat, it can be even worse inside the buildings where we live and work.
The causes of indoor air pollution vary from area to area, house to house and even room to room, floor to floor. Contaminated air seeps in from the outside air, but it also comes up from several other of indoor sources like construction materials, consumer products, mold, insects and pets. Poor ventilation can let it accumulate to dangerous levels which results in serious health risks, a problem that often spikes in fall and winter as we seal up buildings to conserve heat.
If you're concerned about the air quality levels inside your home or office — these are two places where many people do the bulk of their breathing — you might want to pick it apart with an indoor air-quality test to ensure your home is safe and reduce the risk of health problems from possible indoor toxins.
Here is a list of the 7 most common reasons to get an indoor air quality test:
- Volatile organic compounds
- Mold and mildew
- Dust, dander and droppings
These items listed above can not been seen, smelled, felt nor tasted and could be a very serious health risk.
