What Is an Air Quality Test?

An air quality test is a comprehensive evaluation of the air inside your home or business. This process involves identifying pollutants, including mold, dust, chemicals, and fine particles that could be harmful to your health. Our team uses cutting-edge technology to accurately detect these substances, providing you with a clear understanding of your indoor air quality.

What Does an Air Quality Test Detect?

Air quality testing detects a wide range of airborne pollutants and particulate matter in the air you breathe.

Airborne pollutants encompass a wide range of substances from common allergens to dangerous chemicals and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Some of the substances that can be detected in our testing include:

  • Pollen
  • Dust mites
  • Dander
  • Pet hair
  • Secondhand smoke
  • Carbon monoxide
  • Fluorocarbons
  • Radon

These indoor air pollutants can cause a variety of health problems, ranging from mild annoyances like sneezing to serious conditions like asthma and long-term respiratory problems. Recognizing and addressing these pollutants is key to maintaining a healthy indoor environment.

Keep in mind, air quality isn’t just about pollution; it’s also about the overall composition of your indoor air. Factors like humidity levels, temperature variations, and airflow patterns play significant roles in creating a comfortable and healthy living environment.

Testing Your Property’s Air Quality

How to Test Air Quality at Home

Home air quality testing with CH Inspections involves a detailed inspection of your living space. Our experts employ specialized equipment to detect a wide array of pollutants. We pay special attention to damp, low airflow areas, which are common hotspots for mold and allergens. Our thorough approach ensures we identify any and all air quality issues in your home.

How to Test Air Quality in the Work Place

Maintaining good air quality in the workplace is crucial for employee health and productivity. Our commercial air quality test evaluates your ventilation systems, potential exposure to harmful chemicals, and air quality in common areas. We strive to create a healthy workplace environment for you and your team.

How Often to Test Home Air Quality

We recommend conducting a home air quality test annually as part of your regular home maintenance routine. However, if you notice changes in your environment, such as new construction work, the introduction of new furniture, or the onset of unexplained allergies or respiratory issues, more frequent testing might be necessary.

Indoor air quality is not just about the absence of pollutants; it’s also about the overall composition of your indoor air. Factors like humidity levels, temperature variations, and airflow patterns play significant roles in creating a comfortable and healthy living environment.
