Two individual homes will almost never have identical issues. There are far too many variables involved in indoor air quality management for two different homes to have the same issues. Some of these variables include habits of the family or occupants, pets, construction issues and traffic patterns on the roads around the home. Every individual home has its own set of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) entry points and factors. This is why home air quality testing is important.
Miscellaneous allergens can develop and grow throughout your home without your knowledge. There is a standard set of preventative methods that may be followed to stop this. The fact is, testing is only a starting point in the battle against indoor air pollution.
Testing your homes air quality gives you the knowledge you need to create a plan of attack against the indoor air pollution you may be experiencing. It also gives you a way to prove your home is clean, which is better than just guessing or believing without facts to support it.
The ability to prove the air quality of your home is clean is more important than the simple knowledge of the fact. The only way to prove that your homes air is clean is to have home air quality testing done. With the printed results from the testing, you have the opportunity to view and even show-off each individual result.
With the wide range of pollutants that are harmful taken into account home air testing is very important. There are pollutants such as, mold and mildew, bacteria, airborne pollutants and harmful gases from stored chemicals.
The air in tightly sealed homes that have allowed pollutants to build up inside of them can be ten times and higher more hazardous than the outdoor air surrounding them.
With the correct tools and knowledge or directions, anyone can accurately perform and test air quality. With the knowledge gained from the home testing you can begin to create a plan and put the plan into action to improve your homes air quality.
Let us review what we have discussed here. First, because of the wide range of variables, two individual homes will almost never have identical concerns and testing will only give you an idea for the starting point of your homes air quality improvements. After you have identified the starting point you can then begin to create a plan for the improvements. Proof of your homes air quality is more important than the knowledge alone. The air quality inside can be 10 times and more hazardous than the outside air but with the correct tools and direction you can successfully perform home air quality testing yourself.
