Diagnosing & Treating Indoor Air Pollution with AirAdvice for Homes
Out of sight, out of mind, right? Wrong. You might not be able to see what’s polluting your air, but this doesn’t mean it’s not affecting you and your family. Polluted indoor air contributes to respiratory infections, asthma, and allergies and can even exacerbate lung disease. If you have infants or seniors living in your home or if your family suffers from respiratory conditions, it’s especially important to address indoor air pollution.
At Blanton’s, we care about the air you breathe. That’s why we use a thorough diagnostic process to eliminate guesswork and choose the right solution for your home. Before we can treat your air, we need to know what’s wrong with it. That’s the beauty of AirAdvice for Homes™.
The AirAdvice diagnostic process involves three simple steps:
- Blanton’s places a monitor in your home for a period of three to five days. Data is automatically transmitted to our data center through a cellular network or phone line.
- Data is evaluated and matched with the best possible solutions.
- Our indoor air quality consultant returns to your home with a full, detailed report from AirAdvice.
Once you have all the facts and discuss your report with a Blanton’s technician, we offer three proven methods to improve your indoor air quality, including:
The first step in addressing your indoor air quality needs is addressing the source of the problem. Sometimes, controlling the source, whether it is excess dust in your air ducts or mold somewhere in your home, is all you need to address the problem. Our team will help you do just that.
Proper ventilation lets fresh air into your home and pushes stagnant air out. While opening a window is one way to ventilate your Raleigh or Fayetteville home, you can do more. We have various ventilation solutions designed for homeowners to help them improve their indoor air quality with fresh outdoor air.
Filtration and air cleaning are the final steps in getting your Fayetteville or Raleigh home’s indoor air under control. Let a Blanton’s technician help you choose the right air purification solution to address your Fayetteville or Raleigh home’s specific indoor air quality needs.
6 Issues an Indoor Air Quality Test Can Find In Your Home
1. Combustible gases. Carbon monoxide is one of the biggest concerns in this category. Still, natural gas, nitrogen, and other gases could also be in the air you breathe and adversely affecting your health. An indoor air quality test will help identify these gases 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 your family’s health. 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.

Indoor Air Quality FAQs
Does ventilation help protect against COVID-19?
Proper ventilation helps protect indoor air quality, but it is not enough protection against COVID-19. You will also want to address the virus by investing in an air cleaning system. However, fresh air is a good first step.
What indoor air quality products help most with allergies?
To address allergies, start with high-efficiency filtration to remove allergens from the air. Then use an air cleaner or air purifier to address those allergens that make it through the filter. As part of your air cleaning protocol, UV lamps can help eliminate pollen and mold, which can make allergies worse.
Do houseplants help with indoor air quality?
As long as you are not allergic to the plants you bring inside your home, they can be a helpful addition to your indoor air quality treatment protocol. English Ivy and Spider Plants help absorb toxins out of the air and moderate humidity levels, and both of these actions help improve your indoor air quality.
What are the most common indoor air problems?
Indoor air quality is polluted by airborne hazards like mold, radon, carbon monoxide, lead, pollen, dander, and dust. The best way to find your particular home’s needs is to identify problems through indoor air quality testing and then treat them accordingly.
