It’s very important, of course that your indoor air is healthy and free of potentially dangerous contaminants. However, this isn’t really a job for a do-it-yourselfer. In order to make sure you don’t have serious issues, you should have your indoor air quality checked by an expert.
How it Works
If your air is filled with dust, mold, pet dander and other contaminants, you may be susceptible to allergies. Not only will you be miserable, if you have a compromised immune system you could potentially be in danger. Also, if you or someone in your home has asthma, dirty indoor air can be extremely dangerous.
An indoor air quality check typically includes the use of monitors to check for pollutants and also track humidity and temperature. The technician will look at these and other factors that may be contributing to poor indoor air quality in your home. Once the test is complete, you’ll receive a full report explaining the results of the tests as well as recommendations regarding the different types of action you can take to address problem areas. These include issues with the following:
- Volatile organic compounds, such as odors and chemicals
- Particulates such as dust
- The presence of carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide
In many instances, the solution to poor indoor air quality is very simple. By changing or cleaning your air filters on a regular basis, you can reduce indoor pollutants considerably. However, there may also be issues with your ductwork that are allowing contaminants to circulate through your home. You should also have your ducts thoroughly checked by a professional to see if they are contributing to air quality problems.
