Consumers Guide to Indoor Air Quality and Testing

Authored by Dr. Jeff Bennert

People have just a few needs in order to survive. These basic needs include food, water and the air that we breathe. But, it’s not just the availability of air that is needed, it is also the need for healthy air to breathe. This is especially true in your home or business.

The need to be aware of the quality of your indoor air is very important. Today we need to be concerned with breathing mold, radon, carbon monoxide and other potentially hazardous materials that are in our air systems. It is very important that your heating and air conditioning units be tested and maintained in order to avoid breathing things that could be harmful.

If the quality of your indoor air continues to deteriorate and you breathe harmful elements, this could create health problems. Medical conditions such as Asthma, Allergies and other breathing conditions can be a result of breathing bad air. So, to help identify potential hidden hazards in your air, we have put together the following information. We hope this helps you keep safe at your home or place of work.
