Testing Your Indoor Air Quality
Your home’s indoor environment may not be as healthy as you think. There are many factors that can affect your indoor air quality (IAQ) including:
- Your home can generate approximately 40 pounds of dust each year per 1500 square feet
- One ounce of dust contains about 40,000 dust mites which can adversely affect allergies
- Indoor air quality can be lowered by carpet, furniture and damp basements
- Tree pollen, an allergenic irritant, can enter your home from outside
- Perfume, paint, air fresheners and hairspray can also cause indoor air pollution
Reducing indoor air pollutants is simple enough, however, you must determine where and what is causing the build up of poor indoor quality.

How to Determine if Your Home Needs Testing
Pollutants aren’t the only contributors to poor IAQ. Today’s tightly sealed and energy-efficient homes can actually have negative effects on your home’s air quality because they might not be properly equipped to filter and purify the constantly re-circulated air. Without adequate indoor air circulation, pollutants can build up over time, leading to poor indoor air quality. Temperature and humidity need to be balanced to create a comfortable and healthy home environment.
Factors for Testing
- You're always adjusting the thermostat because you're too warm or cold
- Bedrooms not comfortable enough for sleeping
- Your home is humid in the summer or dry in the winter
- Your home generally feels cool and damp
- If your family has Allergies, headaches or asthma
