Do you know what you are breathing? Most of us don’t often think about the air that we are breathing at home or in our place of work in Tampa, Naples, Fort Myers, Siesta Key, Longboat Key, Sarasota, or the surrounding areas, but it is possible that there is something in the air that is affecting your health.
Your indoor air could contain pet dander, volatile organic compounds, dust, lead, and numerous other particulates, and you can’t do anything about them unless you know they are there. This is why homeowners and business owners consult Building Performance Solutions to perform air quality testing. Call us today to learn more.
Why Perform Air Quality Testing?
What often happens is that you will notice that when you are outside, you breathe just fine, but when you get inside you will begin to have nasal irritation, sneezing, and sometimes it progresses to include headaches and nausea. These are indications that you should have an indoor air quality test performed in your building.
Once you have this testing done, you will have a better idea of what may be making you have these symptoms. You can then move on to figuring out the best way to handle improving the indoor air quality. Many times, this will include a cleaning of the building’s air ducts as well as swapping out air filters on a more frequent basis.
For businesses getting the air quality tested can help to ensure that they are providing the best working environment possible for their team. When employees do not have to worry about the indoor air that they are working in, they can be more productive. You also end up with less of your team becoming sick and missing work, leading to productivity improvements as well.
Don’t Think Indoor Air is Healthier Than Outdoor Air
This is a surprising fact for many people, that outdoor air is often cleaner and has fewer irritants than indoor air. The buildings that we now put up, from homes to large multi-floor buildings, are very well sealed and insulated, and this means that fresh air circulation doesn’t happen unless it is built in to the design. This also means that air quality testing is important to ensure that the indoor air is kept to minimal contamination. When you are ready to have air quality testing done at your Tampa, Naples, Fort Myers, Siesta Key, Longboat Key, Sarasota, or other Florida area home or business, give us a call at Building Performance Solutions to schedule your appointment.
