Your home should be a safe haven for you and your family, not a source of hazardous pollutants that cause health concerns. Getting the indoor air quality tested is crucial to ensuring your home’s air is safe to breathe. 

But how does indoor air quality testing work? What do you need to know?

How To Test Indoor Air Quality

Understanding how air quality testing works is your first step to a safer home. 

How Indoor Air Quality Affects Your Health

Indoor air pollution has unsavory and dangerous effects on your health. For example, volatile organic compounds alone can cause runny noses, asthma attacks, and headaches all on their own. 

Once again, according to the World Health Organization, millions of people fall victim to illnesses caused by low indoor air quality. 

Leading Health Conditions Caused By Poor Air Quality

Some of the most prominent health conditions are caused directly or in part due to poorer air quality in your home. 

These various conditions and symptoms can also be indicative of rampant mold growth. In that case, you must contact mold removal specialists to help eradicate mold as soon as possible.

Which device should you choose? Do you have a toxic mold problem? It can be a lot to determine on your own.
