Improving air quality can bring numerous benefits, including:
- Minimize allergy and asthma symptoms
- Reduce the need to dust your home
- Extend the life of your HVAC systems
- Prevent illness and disease
Indoor air quality testing can reveal the overall quality of the air you are breathing and let you know which specific contaminants are most prominent. This way, you’ll know which types of mitigation efforts will be most effective for your particular situation. For example, if there is a large presence of bacteria, an air sanitizer may be best for your needs. On the other hand, if your air is filled with dust and dead skin cells, air filtration may be a smarter option.
Of course, the best IAQ improvement efforts combine several remedies to compound the results. However, your IAQ test results will allow you to target the most pressing issues first, then tackle other concerns as your budget allows. Your home air quality test technician can help you prioritize your efforts to suit your situation. Additional testing in the future can show how your efforts are paying off in terms of improved indoor air quality.
