5 REASONS FOR INDOOR AIR QUALITY TESTING
You may consistently notice foul smells in your home or in one area of your home. There is a wide range of possible types of smells – some people report that the odors are like smelly socks, or urine, musty, or decaying wood. The key is that the odor is everpresent and affects the well-being of those living in the space.
In an effort to save energy, we can sacrifice air quality if a home becomes too airtight. Healthy homes need to breathe, and this means adequate air circulation. This becomes very important for those that spend a lot of time at home do not have fans, and keep windows closed.
You may consider testing the air quality in your home because someone will be in the home may suffer from poor air quality. Some examples would be premature infants, the elderly, someone with asthma, someone chronically ill, and coming home from the hospital.
There may have been a fire in the home or a house next door. There may have been a chemical spill in the neighborhood or even in your garage. There may have been a flood or water intrusion in the roof or basement or crawl space. You may have learned that there is asbestos in your home. Any of these unfortunate scenarios may lead to poor air quality.
OTHER HEALTH CONCERNS
You – or a loved one – may start experiencing health problems in the home. Examples of symptoms of poor air quality are allergic reactions, headaches, mood swings, difficulty breathing, or itchy skins or eyes. If the symptoms can be related to time spent in the home, then testing should be considered.
