One of the biggest mistakes property owners make is to assume that the air quality in their homes or commercial property building is clean and toxin free. However, even if you are indoors all the time, there is no guarantee that the air you are breathing is clean. This is why we at Soil-Away advocate regular air quality testing for homes and commercial properties.
Mold is not the Only Threat to Clean Air
You might think that just because you don’t have a mold contamination issue, the air quality on your property is up to the mark. But that is not necessarily true. A variety of air borne toxins and contaminants can very well be present in the air you breathe already. You just don’t know about it. In addition to other organic threats, the air you breathe could easily be polluted with chemical toxins and particles such as from second hand smoke, or radon and carbon monoxide. More danger could come in the form of peeling or even new paint, your carpeting (fungus, dirt, pet dander, and dust), air purifiers, and cleaning material stored on your property. Each of these can easily be culprits in polluting the air you breathe.
Air Quality Testing with Soil-Away
Air quality testing is one among the several services that Soil-Away provides to home and commercial property owners. We are well aware of the risks that breathing in unclean air presents. We are also well versed with the various factors that lead to unclean air quality present in home and commercial properties.
Little or no mold is not the only indicator of good air quality. It could also well be the case that mold has gone unnoticed primarily because contamination is in a place that is closed or inaccessible. The only way to be 100% sure is by carrying out comprehensive air quality testing.
We check the air quality in a way that is the least intrusive to you. Several petri dishes are spread across the property to ensure that samples from different locations can be tested. This is done because toxicity levels are not always consistent across the property. You could have one room with off-the chart readings and relatively low readings from an adjacent room. The samples collected also help us understand which factor(s) is the dominant culprit in contaminating the air quality.
Once the samples are collected, they are checked in the laboratory. If we find that the level of mold spores are similar to readings from the outside air, it is a good indicator that the air you are breathing is mold free and your property is environmentally safe. Obviously, if the readings are higher than what is acceptable and permissible, then you will need the services of a professional mold remediation services company.
Soil-Away experts are trained in mold remediation and will work with you closely to first identify the source(s) and then systematically plan and execute a mold removal strategy.
