6 Issues an Indoor Air Quality Test Can Find in Your Home

Your health and the health of your family are both important. But did you know there is something right in front of your eyes that you could be overlooking? The air you breathe influences your overall health—that’s why it is important to make certain it is clean, fresh, and not silently sabotaging your health. An indoor air quality test can help find many of the more serious air quality issues. Here are just some of the things this test could help you find in your home:

1. Combustible Gasses

Carbon monoxide is one of the biggest concerns in this category, but natural gas, nitrogen, and other gasses could be in the air you breathe and adversely affecting your health. An indoor air quality test will help identify these gasses and determine from where the gas originates.

2. Radon

Colorless and odorless, radon occurs when uranium decays within the soil. Radon is extremely dangerous and can lead to problems such as lung cancer. A test can help you determine if there is enough radon in your home to pose a major concern for you and your loved ones.

3. Asbestos

Asbestos is most often found in older buildings, as it was once used as a form of insulation within homes and commercial properties. If your home is older, it is even more important to conduct an indoor air quality test to check for asbestos within the atmosphere.

4. Pesticides

Pesticides are designed to kill insects and other household pests. However, when used improperly, they can go airborne and cause a danger to you and your loved ones. Testing the air in your home regularly is especially important if you use pest control products.

5. Mold and Mildew

Mold and mildew come in many forms. Checking for some of the more common, and most dangerous, forms is a good way to ensure healthy for your family. After all, certain molds and mildews can lead to allergies, breathing problems, and other health concerns.

6. Dust and Pet Dander

Dust and pet dander is nearly unavoidable. However, for those with severe allergies and asthma, it is important to keep this under control. An indoor air quality test can help determine if there is too much of either in your air supply.
