Many health symptoms like allergies and asthma can be a consequence of poor indoor air quality. According to doctors, most of the things that cause problems are odorless. Plus, the indoor air quality during winter tends to be worse, as there’s no flow of fresh air from outside, allowing allergens, bacterias, and mold to develop inside.
To reduce the number of allergens and improve the indoor air quality, it’s essential to perform an indoor air quality inspection. At Air Allergen & Mold Testing, we’ve been performing Indoor Air Inspections for several years in Georgia. During the investigation, different samples of air, dust, water, and surfaces are taken to determine the existence and levels of allergens, mold, bacteria, or chemicals.
What does Indoor Air Quality Inspection Include?
Depending on the type of report you choose, some of the things we include are:
- A table of contents and information about how the report is organized for ease of reading and understanding.
- What is identified in the lab analysis for each sample and the quantity
- Guidelines and charts to interpret lab analysis for each type of sample
- The significance of the sample results
- The inspector’s observations for each sampled area
- Suggestions to improve the inspected areas when appropriate
- Guidance for maintaining future indoor air quality
- Concluding remarks and cautions
- Information about how guidelines were established
- Remediation guidance and safety precautions if remediation is considered
- Studies in support of good indoor air quality
- Each microbial lab report includes one or more microphotographs of what was found in the samples
- With the report, it’ll be easier to eliminate sources of pollution so you can make the appropriate changes.
Other strategies to improve your Indoor Air Quality are:
- Vacuum often and get rid of anything that can accumulate water and develop mold
- Change frequently your air filters for both HVAC or AC systems
- Let fresh air in when possible and if needed invest in an air purifier
