How often do you think about the air you breathe, especially in your own home or office in Naples, Fort Myers, Tampa, Siesta Key, Longboat Key, Sarasota, or surrounding areas?

At Building Performance Solutions, we understand this skepticism with air quality testing, but the results that we show usually surprise people. Whether it’s pet dander, mold, pollen, and any other number of contaminants, knowing what is in the air you breathe allows you to do something about it.

Why Bother with Air Quality Testing
While you might not think it, generally the outdoor air quality is better than your indoor air quality. With the tight tolerances in residential and commercial buildings today, the air inside your home doesn’t exchange with the air outside your home like it used to in older homes. As such your indoor air quality is worse than being outside, and this can be the result of many different factors.
People can exhibit symptoms of bad indoor air quality and not realize it is due to their air quality. Itchy or watery eyes, sneezing, headaches, respiratory issues, and more can all be signs that your air quality isn’t as good as it could or should be. We can perform an air quality test to determine what sort of allergens are in your indoor air, and once you know the makeup of your air quality, you can then take steps to correct it.
Enjoy The Benefits of Healthier Indoor Air
Once you know what is in your air, you can take steps to help clean it up to make your life and health better. It might be as simple as having a few windows open to allow air exchange to happen with the outside air. In other cases, the air quality testing results may indicate other problems that need to be addressed, such as a mold issue.
Once you improve your indoor air quality, you will notice a number of improvements in your health, including things such as:
- better sleep
- a strengthened immune system to keep you from coming down with colds
- a better respiratory system
- and more.
