Should I have an Indoor Air Quality Test?
If you are experiencing unexplained health issues such as sinus infections, allergic reactions, headaches, abnormal fatigue etc., and you are effected less when you are outdoors the answer is definitely yes and the sooner the better. If you are not experiencing any noticeable health issues but are concerned about the potential long term effects of radon or asbestos the answer is likely yes as well, but it would be advisable to consult a professional before getting too concerned.
Other potential causes of poor indoor air quality:
- High humidity levels
- Poorly maintained ducts leading to airborne dust issues
- Chemical off-gassing from building materials or furniture
- Inadequate ventilation
- Carbon Monoxide
- Sewer gas
Finally, if you have experienced any type of unexpected water event such as overland flooding, water line breakage, ice damming etc, there is a strong likelihood that conditions were created that allowed mold spores to flourish and create unhealthy indoor air or even structural damage. Again, a discussion with a certified professional will help provide you peace of mind and a plan of attack.
