Residential Air Quality Testing: Why It’s So Important

Residential air quality testing

Did you know that pollutants such as pollen, smoke, dust, dander and even pathogens such as mold, viruses and bacteria can be present in the air that we breathe inside our homes and businesses? We may not be able to see them, but these pollutants and pathogens can be present in the inside air and the results can be very damaging to your health.

Poor Indoor Air Quality

Inside air may contain a dangerous number of pollutants and pathogens that can impact your health. The Environmental Protection Agency has estimated that indoor air may be five times more polluted that the air outside. Poor indoor air quality has been tied to symptoms such as headaches, fatigue, trouble concentrating, irritation of the eyes, nose, throat and lungs. Some long-term effects of exposure to poor indoor air quality can include severe allergies and asthma, heart disease, respiratory issues and even cancer.

Evaluate Health Symptoms

Monitor the health symptoms of everyone in your home. This can help isolate problem IAQ. For example, if someone suffers headaches and wheezing while only at work, the IAQ problem could be at work and not in the home.

The types of symptoms are also important. For example, confusion and nausea may be associated with dangerous carbon monoxide levels. (Please note that every home with at least one fuel burning appliance, heater, attached garage, or fireplace should have a CO Monitor.)

Sneezing and runny nose tracks more closely to allergens, such as mold, pollen, and dander.

How to improve indoor air quality:

In addition to the above suggestions, the newest technology available in air purification uses patented needlepoint bipolar ionization (NPBI) technology to create equal amounts of positive and negative ions. When these ions are injected into the air stream, they break down passing pollutants and gases into harmless compounds like oxygen, carbon dioxide, nitrogen and water vapor.

When the ions come in contact with viruses, bacteria or mold, they remove the hydrogen molecules – without them, the pathogens have no source of energy and will die. The ions also attach to allergens like pollen and other particles, causing them to band together until they are large enough to be caught by your ventilation system’s air filter. This process is proven by independent laboratory testing to be a safe and effective step to protect your IAQ. This process has proven to reduce both COVID-19 and the Human Coronavirus.
