Frequently Asked Questions About Air Quality Testing
Will my family or I feel sick if the air quality in our home is poor?
You or others in your home may have some health effects show up shortly after a single exposure or repeated exposures to a pollutant in the air in your home. These health effects might include irritation of the eyes, nose, or throat. You may experience headaches, dizziness, and fatigue. If you currently have concerns about your health, it is in your best interest to seek answers from a medical professional. While we can test air quality in your home, we are not qualified to diagnose any medical condition. While general symptoms are associated with specific air problems, we will only administer tests for which you ask. Our team members will discuss your concerns and help you decide what tests make the most sense to administer given your circumstances; however, the decision will be yours.
Is there a way for me to know if the air inside my home is safe?
Yes, you can have indoor air quality tests conducted to confirm whether or not the air inside your home has one pollutant or another, such as radon, mold, or Formaldehyde. However, please note that you need to tell us what tests you want to have administered. There are many possible causes of poor indoor air quality, which may be hard to diagnose. We cannot guarantee that the test(s) you choose will provide an answer regarding the general quality of the air in your home.
How much does that cost?
The cost varies depending on the test(s) you want us to administer, plus the consultation/trip fee.
