Indoor Air Quality Tests

Spring is in full swing here in Virginia Beach, and so are seasonal allergies. We are here to help keep you healthy and make sure the pollen stays outside. Although, your indoor air can contain more than allergens such as dander and pollen. The air you are breathing could be harming your health due to possible pollutants. So, what exactly am I breathing inside my home? The best way to determine if the air you are breathing is safe or dangerous is an indoor air quality test.

What is an Indoor Air Quality Test?

An indoor air quality test measures the air for biological and chemical pollutants. Biological pollutants are allergens such as mold and pollen. Chemical pollutants such as harmful odorless gasses like carbon monoxide and radon can be dangerous to inhale. This test can make all the difference to the air you are breathing at home.

Why Should Hybrid Air Perform A Test?

It is important to know what is in the air you are breathing, especially if it could be affecting your health. According to the EPA, we are more likely to be exposed to problematic air quality indoors rather than outdoors. Here are possible symptoms of exposure to biological and chemical pollutants:

  • Biological pollutants: sneezing, watery eyes, coughing, shortness of breath, and dizziness.
  • Chemical pollutants: eye and respiratory tract irritation, headaches, dizziness, fatigue, loss of coordination, allergic skin reactions, memory impairment, and nausea.
  • Sick Building Syndrome (SBS): SBS is used to describe situations in which building occupants experience health and comfort effects that appear to be linked to time spent in a building.

What is Included In An Indoor Air Quality Test?

We will start by running a test with our indoor air quality monitor. This monitor helps detect pollutants and allows us to assess the situation. The results from the test determine how we will proceed when servicing you, which could be anything from installing air purifiers to having your air ducts cleaned.

How can I improve my air quality?

Hybrid Air has multiple solutions to improving air quality within your home. The most effective way to filter out pollutants is to make sure you have a clean air filter with the correct MERV rating for your situation. We offer
air duct cleaning
