When you have indoor air quality testing for your home in Fort Myers, Naples, Tampa, Siesta Key, Longboat Key, Sarasota, and the surrounding areas, there are really three categories of contaminants that our team at Building Performance Solutions will be looking for.
- Biological contaminants
- Chemical or VOC contaminants
- And combustible contaminants
These will be tested for, and all can provide a variety of health issues. Many of these potential contaminants are ones that homeowners wouldn’t guess would be a problem. Contact our office today to schedule your indoor air quality testing home session to ensure that your air is as good as it could be.
Both New and Used Homes Could Have Issues
It doesn’t matter if your home was built yesterday or 100 years ago, any home could potentially have contaminants that will affect the indoor air quality. Biological pollutants can include things like pollen from plants, pet dander, mold, dust, and more. And just because you don’t have plants or pets inside the home doesn’t mean that there aren’t these contaminants in your home. They could have been brought in on your clothing, shoes, or other ways.
Non-living substances, often collected under the Volatile Organic Compounds or chemicals label, can be found in many different items. Radon is a naturally occurring gas that can penetrate to the inside of your home’s basement or lower level. This is a very dangerous substance that needs to be taken care of. Construction materials can off-gas certain chemicals, and even paints can give off chemical compounds that need to be dealt with.
Test After Major Changes to The Home
In many cases, people start to notice changes in their health when they are indoors after their home has undergone a major change. When home renovations or remodeling happens, a lot of different things get stirred up, new building materials are introduced into the home, and more. After everything is buttoned up is a great time to have an indoor air quality testing home session to see if there is anything that should be addressed to ensure that you enjoy the changes to your home without any health side effects.
Another good time to have an indoor air quality testing home session is before you close on a home you are looking to purchase. The last thing you want is to buy a home with problems, so make sure that there aren’t hidden issues with the property in Florida, including Fort Myers, Naples, Tampa, Siesta Key, Longboat Key, Sarasota, and the surrounding areas.
