Symptoms of Poor Indoor Air Quality
While we don’t usually think about it, there are some signs that may indicate that your indoor air quality is suffering compared to outdoor air quality. Symptoms such as a stuffy nose, sneezing, headaches, coughing, and other reactions may be an indication that you could benefit from an indoor air quality testing session.
But what constitutes poor indoor air quality? What can you expect to find when you have an indoor air quality testing session? In many testing sessions, we have found things like carbon dioxide, pollens, mold, pet dander, dust mites, ground-level ozone, and many more. Of course, different people react differently to various airborne contaminants, but everyone will appreciate cleaner air to breathe.
In commercial and industrial buildings, there are many people that utilize the same space. The last thing you want is to get a reputation that being inside your building has caused people’s allergies to flare up. Indoor air quality testing will reveal what items are most prevalent in your indoor air and then you can develop a plan to deal with them.
What Causes Poor Indoor Air Quality?
There are a large number of potential causes of indoor air quality not being as good as it should be. Often, there are several different causes that can be addressed once a testing session has been completed and analyzed. If you have recently had a remodeling or construction project at your property, or if you haven’t had an HVAC cleaning or even the visitors to your building could be bringing contaminants into your building.
