Find Irritants and Other Issues With Indoor Air Quality Testing

Posted by Paul Wadsworth on Wed, Mar 23, 2011 @ 03:05 PM

Indoor air quality is not something that people think about much.  But just because you aren’t thinking about it doesn’t mean that it isn’t affecting you and your family on a daily basis.  According to a 2007 study by AirAdvice– a leading air quality technology organization– allergens, biological contaminants and/or toxins are present in about 90 percent of all homes.

So, the odds are good that your home is suffering from poor indoor air quality.  Identifying the source of the problem is the first step to reducing contaminants in your indoor environment so that you and your family can breathe easier.  Where to start?  Have an IAQ test performed.  We are an authorized AirAdvice contractor and we do a lot of indoor air quality testing for Cleveland-area homes.

Indoor air quality testing involves the use of a monitor, placed in your home for a few days to measure a number of factors that affect air quality, such as:

  • Temperature
  • Carbon monoxide
  • Humidity
  • Carbon dioxide
  • Airborne particles

The monitor measures levels of contaminants and records other data about your indoor air.  The test then generates a report with easy-to-read graphs illustrating which contaminants affect your home at what times of day.  For us, the information provides a starting point for finding a solution.

Poor indoor air quality can cause a number of health issues.  It can aggravate allergies and asthma, and cause cold, flu and other respiratory problems.  Don’t let poor indoor air affect the quality of your life at home.  Indoor air quality testing can help you get a handle on your air quality issues.  Call us here at PK Wadsworth to schedule your IAQ test today.
