Hello, my name is Kenneth Davis and I'm excited that you've found my appliance services blog. In this blog, you'll learn about buying new appliances, common appliance repairs and new appliance trends. I know a lot about appliances and it all started when I was young and the appliance man came to our house to fix the stove. I watched the appliance man as he did his job and when he was done, our stove worked like new. The appliance man made a big impact on me and after that, I read and learned everything I could about appliances. Today, I still enjoy keeping up with the current designs and features that are available when buying new appliances. I hope that you find my appliance blog fascinating and that it helps you when buying an appliance or requesting an appliance service.
Just as a well owner needs to get the well water tested every year, any homeowner who wants safe indoor air should get their indoor air quality quality checked regularly. Your AC filters can only do so much, and sometimes your HVAC system can even secretly contaminate your air with dust, mold, or other contaminants. Here's why testing is so important.
Testing will allow you to determine what your air quality focus should be
If you don't get your air tested initially, you won't know which pollutants need to work on the most. This can vary a lot because indoor air can have problems with humidity or lack thereof, chemicals from manufactured materials, pet dander or even pet fecal matter if you or previous resident have/had a lot of pets, and even mold spores or simply a lot of dust in the air. So, instead of bringing in a full artillery to pound each one of these potential problems, it's better to test the air quality first to help you focus your efforts. Then you can decide whether you need HEPA filtration, a sanitizing air filter, humidifiers or dehumidifiers, and so on. (Besides, some of these problems simply can't be treated simultaneously; you can't both humidify and dehumidify your air at the same time and expect to get anywhere, so it's vital to know what's going on before you try to improve air quality.)
Problems can change from year to year
Some contaminants can show up suddenly in your air even if they haven't been a problem in previous years. For example, if your home has a roof leak in the past year and you didn't realize how much water damage had occurred, there could be mold growing in your attic space for some other out-of-the-way location that you didn't know about, and this could be causing high levels of mold spore contamination in your home. If this is happening you definitely want to know about it before it starts giving you symptoms and making your entire family sick.
Some air contaminants can be very serious
Some contaminants come from things that happen in your home, such as when your pets have accidents or when a mold problem develop. However, other problems can come from the environment, like radon does. If you don't get your air tested, you may not realize that your home has radon gas, for example, and needs to be treated for that problem.
