Indoor Air Quality Testing in Fredericksburg and Surrounding Areas
The air inside a home or other building can be more polluted than the air outside – even 100 times more! Indoor air pollution can cause throat irritation, headaches and sinus problems and can trigger asthma and allergies. Have the experts with Robert B. Payne, Inc. help make your inside air fresh and healthy for everyone.
What Causes Indoor Air Pollution?
There are dozens of microscopic substances that fill the air we breathe. Many indoor air pollutants are also found outdoors, but due to natural air circulation these pollutants behave differently. The air circulation that would naturally take place is altered due to the insulating properties of doors, windows and walls. As a result, you will likely need the quality of your air filtration improved.
Once pollutants are trapped indoors their concentration can skyrocket, thus causing the problems described above. Common indoor air pollutants include:
- Animal dander
- Dead skin cells
Poor indoor air quality is frequently a combination of the polluting substances themselves and a lack of healthy air circulation. Both of these factors have to be addressed in order to improve overall air quality. We care about the health and well-being of our customers; by combating indoor air pollution, the associates at Robert B. Payne, Inc. can improve community health one building at a time.
How We Can Help You
We offer our customers a comfort assessment to determine the quality of indoor air and what sources of indoor air pollution are present. First, ask yourself the following questions:
- Is your indoor air stale or stuffy?
- Are rooms difficult to heat or cool effectively?
- Do you have high utility bills?
- Are there drafts?
- Is anyone inside the home suffering from asthma or allergies?
- Has recent remodeling or renovation taken place on the property?
- Does dust appear on surfaces soon after removal?
If you answered “yes” to at least one of these questions, then your indoor environment may have high concentrations of air pollution.
Indoor Air Quality Test
Clean indoor air is essential for a comfortable and healthy home. It’s easy to forget about the air we breathe. It’s such a simple matter, and yet so very necessary to our way of life. We cannot see air, though. As such, it’s an afterthought. Once an illness sets in, however, the air we’re breathing becomes far more critical. At Robert B. Payne, Inc. we recommend a comprehensive indoor air quality test to put your home on the right track.
How do you go about testing the quality of your home’s air? Well, there are tests available that make the task far more manageable. An initial inspection should help, too. If you notice your air ducts are dirty, or the filter has yet to be changed this month, you need to perform maintenance. Changing out your air filter will improve the quality of your breathing air significantly. If you’re still unsure or have questions, give us a call!
