Why Bother with Air Quality Testing?
The air could contain hundreds of different substances, each of which could cause a variety of issues, or even no issues at all, depending on the susceptibility of each individual. Without air quality testing, you really don’t know what is in the air, and without knowing what is there you can’t take appropriate steps to deal with whatever it is.
Volatile organic compounds, various allergens, carbon monoxide, different molds, bacteria, particulates, and a host more contaminants could all be present in your air. Places such as hospitals, clinics, hotels, restaurants, theaters, universities, and other buildings can all benefit from an air quality testing session. Keeping your clients healthy and safe is important, especially when they could turn around and accuse you of not doing anything to make changes to improve the indoor air quality.
What Can Happen If Left Untested?
There are a number of different causes of poor air quality, especially indoors. In new home construction as well as commercial construction, some of the materials used could give off volatile organic compounds. Different paints and solvents can also affect the air quality, as can some different aerosol sprays, detergents and disinfectants. Radon, which is naturally occurring, can cause significant health issues if not properly vented and dealt with. Long-term exposure to the more powerful contaminants can cause serious health issues.
The benefits of cleaning up the air quality can include better sleep, a stronger immune system, and even a lowered blood pressure. We usually don’t think about the air quality until we see something obvious, like smoke, but the air could have many different contaminants that are affecting your health in Tampa, Naples, Fort Myers, Sarasota, Longboat Key, Siesta Key, and throughout the state of Florida.
