Most indoor air pollution comes from sources that release either gases or particles into the air decreasing the indoor air quality. These problems are often exacerbated by poor ventilation, high temperatures, and high humidity levels. Some common causes of poor air quality are:
Old building materials such as lead and asbestos
Central heating and cooling systems
Lack of visible mold doesn’t mean that mold and other contaminants are not present. Air sampling can determine the quantity of contaminants in the air including mold spores, dust mites, allergens, dander, chemical pollutants, and humidity. It is also a necessary step in the mold remediation process. Indoor air quality testing is an integral step in identifying and remediating sources of poor indoor air quality.
Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) refers to the condition of the air inside a building, with particular emphasis on the way it relates to the health and comfort of the indoor environment. Poor air quality within a home or business can lead to dry skin, allergies, asthma, respiratory issues, and other health concerns. Air sampling may be necessary to check the level of contaminants in the air. Air quality testing will give you the knowledge and power to establish a healthier environment for your home or business.
