Keep Yourself and Your Family Healthy
Every time that you open a door or a window, you give the opportunity for contaminants to come into your home. But there are other things that can come from inside the home that you may not think about that can cause issues with your breathing. Sometimes symptoms manifest such as headaches, coughing, sneezing, or other signs that indicate that you may have poor indoor air quality. Our testing will provide you details on what is in the air so you can take steps to mitigate them.
Pollen, pet dander, dust, fungus, mold, and other things can come from the outside into your home, whether through an open window, door, or even a leak in your home’s envelope. Mold can grow inside your home given the right conditions and then throw off spores that affect the indoor air quality. And not all filters will catch everything, but they can help.
When To Test Your Indoor Air Quality
There are many times when you will want to have indoor air quality testing for your home. When you have had some renovations done to your home, once things are completed, it is a good idea to check your indoor air quality to ensure that there are no lingering issues. The same can be said for a brand-new home to ensure that there are no volatile organic compounds that are being offgassed indoors from carpeting, paint, wood, or other materials. You may also want to test your indoor air after a natural disaster that affects your home, such as flooding or another event.
Once you know what is in your air, you can either rest easy knowing that your air is fairly clean, or you can take the appropriate actions to help mitigate the issues with your indoor air quality. If your home has been affected by a hurricane in Naples, Fort Myers, Tampa, Sarasota, Siesta Key, Longboat Key, and throughout the state of Florida, give our team at Building Performance Solutions a call. We’ll provide you with all of the details of these tests and help you if the results show you need to take care of certain issues.
