Indoor Air Quality Testing
The air outside your home could be contaminated with several pollutants, including lead, radon, formaldehyde, dust mites, mold, pet dander and more. Some people are more sensitive to these pollutants than others, but it’s still important to take steps to make your indoor air as clean as possible.
The best way to start improving the quality of the air inside your home?
Have it tested.
Indoor air quality testing allows you to detect contaminants in your home. Kits to test for things like radon are widely available, but for the best results, you may want to consult with an expert. Indoor air pollution can have a major impact on your family’s health, so making sure your air is clean is not something you should take lightly.
Improving the Quality of the Air Inside Your Home
Keeping your windows closed and changing your clothes and shoes as soon as you get home are both good ways to keep some contaminants outside of your home, but taking preventative measures isn’t enough. We recommend investing in a high-quality air filtration system or air purifier to make sure your air is as fresh as possible. It is also a good idea to invest in having your air ducts professionally cleaned every few years to remove dust, dander, and other debris.
