Plymouth Michigan Indoor Air Quality Testing

How is the air quality in your homeBuying a new home is a huge investment and it’s important to have your potential home inspected prior to closing day. It’s also crucial that a home inspector be dependable, thorough, and experienced.

An inspection will reveal pertinent information about a home’s structural, electrical, and plumbing components – and can hint to potential issues such as mold – but to get the full picture of a home or business, indoor air quality testing is a necessary component, especially if mold has been found or is suspected. Indoor air quality is a greater health hazard than outdoor air pollution, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

In fact, pollutants are known to be 100 times higher inside of a home as opposed to outside. That, combined with the fact that people (especially children) stay inside more and more streaming movies, strolling through social media sites on their smartphones, and playing video games, means air quality should be of high importance.

Having your air quality tested before putting your house on the market is also of equal importance. Many buyers seek air quality audits along with their inspections to ensure the air is safe and free of harmful chemicals and molds. Mold growth can be present within the home and be hidden behind walls or underneath carpeting or flooring. The use of formaldehyde is prevalent in certain building materials and the concentration of this known cancer-causing agent can be many times the safe level.
