How do I test the air quality in my home?
Many people think that air quality is only a major concern when they’re outdoors. After all, there’s air quality warnings, traffic smog, and more. However, numerous studies have demonstrated that indoor air quality in most homes can be just as bad, if not worse. Compounding the issue is that fact that most people spend the majority of their time breathing indoor air. In other words, you need to test the air quality in your home.
Here in Albuquerque, Wagner makes that easy. We offer indoor air quality testing throughout ABQ. Our test can reveal what’s in your home’s air and what you can do to clean or clear your air. Contact us to schedule your IAQ test today.
3 steps for keeping the air in your home safe to breathe
Step #1: Contact Wagner for an indoor air quality test
There’s a common saying: knowledge is power. A professional indoor air quality test can make a world of difference when it comes to knowing what’s in your home’s air. At that point, you can do something about it. Our IAQ test is a thorough, professional-grade examination of your indoor air. Most often, the test comes back with elevated levels of dust, pet dander, and pollen—any of these are common allergy triggers. But, in some cases, the test could come back with evidence of radon or mold spores, either of which would indicate a much more serious issue that needs to be addressed.
The point is that you don’t know until you test the air quality in your home. That’s why we recommend starting here.
Step #2: Act on the information
Now that you have a better understanding of what is in your home’s air, you can work with Wagner to mitigate the problems. In many cases, additional air filters may be needed to purify and clean air. In others, the source of the foul air—such as a mold infestation—may need to be addressed as part of the remedy. After completing your IAQ test, our technicians will meet with you and go over what you need to know and recommended remedies for each issue.
Step #3: Remain vigilant
Many respiratory ailments and allergies are caused and exacerbated by poor air quality. If you or a loved one develop worsening allergies or experience frequent bouts of sickness, it may be time for you to evaluate the air in your home and take measures to improve its quality. Besides the use of certain plants, you may benefit from using an air purifier to help remove harmful toxins out of your home’s air.
Keep in mind that air quality is an ongoing issue that requires your attention.
