Indoor air quality might not be something you’ve ever given much consideration to, but you really should. The EPA estimates that the air inside the average home is usually anywhere from two to five times more polluted than the air outside it. Having your home tested is the best way to determine your air quality and also what steps you can take to improve it.
Bryn Mawr’s Best Air Quality Testing
The air quality inside your home can have a major impact on your family’s health and safety. Pollen, dust mites, mold spores, and other allergens can be especially problematic for people with breathing difficulties and respiratory ailments. However, many homes are also filled with numerous airborne pollutants that can cause issues for anyone regardless of their age and state of health. This is especially true if your home has higher levels of VOCs (volatile organic compounds), exhaust fumes, and other potentially harmful airborne substances.
During an air quality test, a technician will use specialized equipment to measure the concentration of various types of pollutants. Specifically, the testing looks at separate categories: biological pollutants, chemical pollutants, and combustion pollutants. Biological pollutants are allergens such as pollen, mold spores, pet dander, bacteria, and dust mites. Chemical pollutants include radon, lead, and formaldehyde, while combustion pollutants are things like smoke, exhaust fumes, and carbon monoxide. Some of these pollutants are naturally occurring, but many others like formaldehyde can actually be given off by your home’s building materials and even your furniture.
