Indoor air is the environment within a building or structure that is enclosed and contains people. The quality of this “fresh” or “used” air has an impact on the health of occupants. An indoor air problem can be caused by pollutants and contaminants in the air, such as gases, chemicals, and particulates.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Are The Symptoms Of Poor Indoor Air Quality?
The most common symptoms of poor air quality are headache, dry skin and eyes, chronic cough or sore throat. Unfortunately, these can also be caused by other factors like allergies or smoking so it is important to be sure that poor air quality is the culprit before you take any action.
How do I read air quality test results?
There are a number of different ways to read air quality test results.
-The most common is the Air Quality Index (AQI). This index rates air quality on a scale from 0 to 500. Above 0, the air quality is considered good; below 100 it is poor.
-The American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) has a standard for indoor air quality. This standard rates air-quality on a scale from 1 to 100, with 50 considered normal and below 15 unhealthy.
What ways are there to test air quality?
The most common ways to test are with a smoke machine or a particle counter. Smoke machines work by blowing out particles of known size and composition into an air stream. The smoke particles can interfere with the airflow and tell you how good your insulation is at blocking those particles from entering. Particle counters work by detecting individual particle size, giving a more accurate reading of what’s being breathed in.
What is a VOC?
A VOC is a volatile organic compound. VOCs can be produced from many different sources such as paint, carpets and furniture materials like formaldehyde or benzene. VOCs are often present in the air when you are inside your home, office or other building.
How do you test for toxic mold in the air?
If you suspect that mold in your residence, find a company with certified professionals to test the air. This can be accomplished through an environmental assessment or by using a mold detection kit.
A certified laboratory will use a microscope to identify the type of toxic mold in your residence and take samples for analysis. This is important because some types may not be harmful, while others can lead to health complications.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends that residents test their homes for mold annually.
Will an air quality test detect mold?
Yes. An air quality test will not only determine the presence of mold spores, but it will also measure carbon monoxide and other toxic chemicals such as formaldehyde or volatile organic compounds.
What does an air quality test detect?
