Why do I want indoor air quality testing?

There are a wide range of issues some homeowners or property managers are facing when it comes to air quality testing. When needed, we can also perform deodorization and odor control services. Here are some common reasons why people ask for air quality testing:

  • Water Damage – After dealing with water damage, it’s not uncommon for odors to become present. As moisture sits for long periods of time, it starts binding to your structure and it creates the perfect conditions for mold to grow.
  • Mold Damage – Mold is one of the top reasons that people call for indoor air quality testing. Because mold can be hard to see, it can reach substantial amounts of growth before people notice it’s present. Those who have acute reactions to mold will notice right away. If you suspect mold could be a reason for poor air quality or allergy-like symptoms (such as itching or watering eyes, runny nose, itchy skin) then an air quality test would be highly recommended to learn more about the source of potential mold.
  • Wildfire Smoke – Wildfires are becoming more common in arid states like Colorado. A small spark with high winds on a dry day is enough to cause issues for an entire neighborhood. If your home or property was near a large wildfire and the odor is overwhelming, Pure Restore can help perform air quality testing.
  • Residential Fire and Smoke – Fires from residential sources are very different from wildfire smoke. Residential fires burn through buildings, which contain electronics, batteries, appliances, and building materials which burn off toxic and carcinogenic fumes into the air.

What are you looking for during an indoor air quality test?

Our primary goal during testing is to understand the source and how saturated your home is with water, mold, or smoke damage. Once we find out the severity and where the damage is concentrated, we can start planning action items. This can involve inspecting areas that are hard to reach, such as attics, crawlspaces, and HVAC systems.

What is InstaScope?

Restoration companies like Pure Restore use traditional methods in addition to cutting-edge technology, such as the InstaScope. InstaScope takes live air samples and receives real-time information about every room so you can know if mold is present in a structure. Unfortunately, cheap at-home mold testing kits found at retail stores are not always effective, and they sometimes show false-positives. After a traditional mold sample is taken, it will take days or over a week for the lab results to come back. That’s why we use InstaScope to evaluate an environment instantly and generate reports on-site.

Professional tools help reduce project costs because they minimize the processing time that labs typically need to complete testing. You can now get results on the same day. This is a particularly great tool for medical and healthcare facilities.

How do you improve air quality?

Improving air quality is focused around understanding the source (water, fire, mold, etc.) and then creating action items based on where damage or odor is emanating from.

Why should I hire Pure Restore to test my indoor air quality?

The process may involve professional grade equipment depending on the required applications, such as ozone machines and air scrubbers. While it’s possible to rent certain equipment, using them improperly can be costly compared to hiring professionals.

Professionals have a full suite of tools which provide timely and accurate indoor air quality testing. They also have the experience to quickly assess the scope of damage and how to approach the next task, which is air quality improvement. As an IICRC certified company with years of experience, Pure Restore is passionate about the science behind air quality. It is our duty to restore your air quality to healthy conditions.

AIR QUALITY TESTING FAQ

Answers to frequently asked questions about air quality testing.

How do you perform an air quality test?

Air quality testing is important in order to ensure that the air inside your home is safe to breathe. There are a few different ways to test the air quality in your home. One way is to purchase an indoor air quality monitor. These monitors can test for a variety of different pollutants, including carbon monoxide and radon. Another way to test the air quality in your home is to keep track of your health indicators. If you start to experience more headaches or respiratory problems, it could be a sign that the air quality in your home is poor. Finally, you can consult with an expert in the field of air quality. They will be able to advise you on the best course of action to take in order to improve the air quality in your home.

What is tested for air quality?

A hand-held device that measures the amount of carbon dioxide in an indoor space is one of the most basic devices used for assessing air quality. High levels of CO2 are signs of poor ventilation, and high-efficiency air-cleaning plants are required. CO2 is not the only pollutant of concern in indoor air; other chemicals and particulates can also pose risks to human health.

What are the three basic steps in an air quality assessment?

Step one is an analysis of each pollutant. Step two is a more in-depth analysis using previously collected data to determine the pollution levels within the city. Step three is to have annual air quality status reports.

How do you test indoor air quality?

The best way to test indoor air quality is to purchase a monitor. These devices measure the levels of various pollutants in the air, including volatile organic compounds (VOCs), dust, and carbon dioxide (CO2). If the levels of any of these pollutants are high, it may be necessary to take steps to improve the air quality.

Are home air quality tests accurate?

There are many different types of home air quality test kits available on the market, and they can vary widely in terms of accuracy. If you are concerned about the air quality in your home, it is important to get a kit that offers high-accuracy readings for the pollutants that affect you most. The most common pollutants that test kits measure are carbon monoxide, dust, mold, and VOCs (volatile organic compounds). Some kits also measure other pollutants, such as radon and asbestos. When choosing a kit, keep in mind that more expensive does not necessarily mean more accurate. Be sure to read reviews from other customers to find a kit that will meet your needs.

How do you check the air quality in your home?

There are several ways to check the air quality in your house. One way is to get a home air quality monitor. These devices can measure various pollutants in the air, including dust, pollen, and smoke. Another way to assess air quality is to examine your health symptoms. If you notice that you’re experiencing more respiratory problems or headaches than usual, it may be a sign that the air in your home is polluted. Additionally, you can check for carbon monoxide and radon emissions. Both of these pollutants are invisible and odorless, but they can be dangerous to your health. Finally, you can consult an expert in the field of air quality. They will be able to provide you with more information about what might be causing poor air quality in your home and how you can improve it.

What is involved in an air quality test?

An inspector begins the air quality test with a visual inspection, looking for any red flags that could indicate the presence of pollutants. The inspector then takes humidity readings to get an idea of the relative moisture levels in the air. For VOCs, or volatile organic compounds, collect air samples and surface and air samples in problem zones. These samples are then sent to a lab for analysis. The results of the air quality test can help identify areas where improvements need to be made to ensure better indoor air quality.

How long does it take to test air quality?

It typically takes a few hours to test the air quality in a home. This time frame can be shortened or lengthened depending on the size or complexity of the home and the number of areas that need to be tested. The most common areas that need to be tested are attics, basements, crawl spaces, and HVAC systems.

How can I test my home for mold?

The best way to test for mold in your house is by doing a swab test. To do this, you will need diluted bleach (1 part bleach, 16 parts water) and a cotton swab. Dip the cotton swab in the solution and then dab it on the area of your house that you think may have mold. If the area turns white, then it is most likely mold.

How do you know if the air in your house is clean?

Itchy eyes, runny nose, sneezing, coughing, dizziness, and tiredness are some of the symptoms of poor air quality. They’re usually brief and readily treatable. However, if you experience these symptoms on a regular basis, it could be a sign of a more serious problem. Inhalation of pollutants can irritate the lungs and cause difficulty breathing. Prolonged exposure to poor air quality can also lead to chronic respiratory problems, such as bronchitis and asthma. If you’re concerned about the air quality in your home or workplace, consider investing in an air purifier.

How do I know if air quality is bad?

If you’re sneezing more than usual and you can’t figure out why, it’s possible you’re allergic to something in your house. Keep an eye out for new or unusual symptoms, and be cautious of your lungs. Take note of the people, places, and things around you. Check for recent renovations or repairs.

What are the symptoms of poor air quality?

Cough and congestion are two of the most prominent symptoms that indicate bad air quality. Headache, nausea, allergies, and mucous membrane irritation are also typical complaints. People with asthma or other respiratory illnesses are especially susceptible to the effects of poor air quality.

What do air pollution specialists do?

The responsibilities of an air pollution expert are to develop and evaluate air monitoring, investigation, and control programs. They also validate air quality simulations. They collect, analyze, and interpret data on the impact of air pollutants on health and may also develop policy recommendations to reduce or eliminate air pollution.

What are the main issues with air quality?

Air pollution is a major global problem that affects not only the environment but also public health. These include faster aging of the lungs, reduced lung capacity and function, asthma, emphysema, and possibly cancer development. In addition to these health concerns, air pollution also contributes to climate change and has a negative impact on the environment. It is therefore essential that we take steps to reduce air pollution in order to protect both our health and the planet.

What does an air quality test determine?

Air quality tests can reveal the presence of hazardous gasses like carbon monoxide and radon. They can also detect airborne particles and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Some advanced air quality monitors also measure indoor humidity and temperature. By testing the air quality, you can ensure that your home is safe and healthy for you and your family.

How do you measure VOCs in a home?

A PID is a photoionization detector that is used to measure VOCs, or volatile organic compounds, in a home. These instruments are portable and can be used to measure the overall quantity of VOCs in the air. PIDs work by ionizing the molecules of VOCs in the air and then measuring the electrical charge that is generated. This information can then be used to calculate the concentration of VOCs in the air. PIDs are sensitive devices and can be used to detect very low levels of VOCs. However, they are not specific to any one type of VOC and will not indicate what types of VOCs are present in the air.

What parameters are tested for indoor air quality?

Most indoor air quality (IAQ) sensors measure carbon dioxide (CO2), temperature, and relative humidity. Indoor CO2 concentrations are usually higher than outdoor levels because of the presence of people, who exhale CO2. However, excessively high CO2 levels can indicate poor ventilation. Temperature and relative humidity affect how comfortable occupants feel and can also influence IAQ. For example, high temperatures can encourage the growth of mold and dust mites, while low relative humidity levels can cause dry eyes, noses, and throats.

How do you improve the air quality in a room?

Maintaining good air quality is important for both your health and the longevity of your air conditioner. One of the simplest and most effective ways to improve air quality is to regularly replace your air conditioner’s filter. A dirty filter can significantly reduce airflow and cause your system to work harder, leading to higher energy bills and a shorter lifespan for your AC unit. In addition, be sure to check other types of filters in your home, such as those in your furnace or ventilation (HVAC) system. Regularly changing these filters will also help to improve air quality and keep your heating and cooling costs under control.

How is indoor air quality tested?

Indoor air quality can be tested in a number of ways, but the most common method is indoor air sampling. This involves taking a sample of the air inside a building and testing it for various contaminants. Soil gas sampling around the outside of a structure can also be used to identify possible sources of VOCs. This technique involves taking a sample of the gas released from the ground and testing it for various contaminants. Finally, subsurface vapor sampling can be used to determine if vapor intrusion is occurring from a subterranean source. This technique involves taking a sample of the vapor coming from the ground and testing it for various contaminants. All three of these methods are effective at identifying possible sources of VOCs and other contaminants.

What are the two valid indicators of indoor air quality?

Radon and serum cotinine are the two most reliable indicators of indoor air quality. Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that is produced by the decay of uranium in soil, rock, and water. It can enter homes through cracks in the foundation or other openings. Serum cotinine is a measure of tobacco smoke exposure. It is found in the blood and urine of people who have been exposed to tobacco smoke. Tobacco smoke contains more than 4,000 chemicals, including over 50 known to cause cancer.
