Both New and Used Homes Could Have Issues
Many people have the misconception that their new home won’t have any problems and should be free of issues. Unfortunately, many different materials give off different gasses from the manufacturing process. These volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, can have a dramatic effect on your health, including breathing, headaches, and more.
Both new and old homes could have issues with appliances such as gas stoves, furnaces, gas ovens, and more that can emit gases like carbon monoxide. You can’t see or smell it, but it’s there and if it is high enough in concentration can injure or kill people. And while mold is usually associated with older homes, even new homes can be susceptible to mold. Finding and treating mold issues early is key to minimizing the expense associated with cleaning it up.
Whenever you are looking to either purchase an existing home, or before you move in to a brand-new home, having an indoor air quality test for the home should be on your list of tasks to do. There will also be some air contamination, but it is the kind of contaminants as well as the concentration of them that may be cause for concern and action.
Test After Major Changes to The Home
Another good time to have an indoor air quality test performed at your home is after a major change in the home. This could include some remodeling projects when you have new carpets installed, or even after a major rain storm or other natural event. These can introduce new things to your indoor air, and it is important to know what they are so that you can deal with them. No matter where you live in Naples, Tampa, Fort Myers, Sarasota, Siesta Key, Longboat Key, or throughout Florida, make the call to Building Performance Solutions to have our experienced team perform an indoor air quality test for your home.
