We always like to guard against outdoor pollutants and poor outdoor air quality, but we often overlook the quality of our indoor air. However, indoor air quality testing is even more important because we spend most of the time indoors such as in the home, office or factory. Workers in factories can easily experience the smoke, dirt and chemicals there. Therefore, they sometimes have to wear a mask and professional kit because the hazardous chemicals and different volatile organic compounds remain in the air. That’s why commercial indoor air quality testing in San Jose and other areas in California are so important. In the same way, our homes also contain many VOC's which are produced by paints, mold, dust and many cleaning products, to mention a just a few of the common sources.
All of these produce different particles which are hazardous to our health. We may suffer from continuous sneezing and nose irritation because of them. Some areas where water leaks can ooccur are very prone towards mold. Mold is also allergic and it may get even worse over time. So, you have to make use of professional mold testing and indoor air quality testing to keep your family safe.
There are several hidden and visible indoor items which can cause allergic reactions in both the home and the work place. Sometimes mold is invisible but you none the less suffer with allergic symptoms but remain unable to detect any visible mold. This may be due to drifting mold spores in the air. That’s why all pollutants including mold and VOCs should be tested while having residential or commercial indoor air quality testing in San Jose. For example, if you are working in a commercial area, then you must start with VOC testing. If you just want to improve your indoor air quality in your home, then a mold test should be your first priority.
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) Testing
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) testing includes collecting the samples of different air and surface substances from a particular area and checking in professional labs using specialized techniques to check the nature, type and intensity of the VOCs.
Mold Testing to Improve Commercial Air Quality
Mold testing is all about taking professional measures to check the possibility, type and intensity of the mold. It is the most recommended air quality testing technique for all kinds of indoor buildings because mold can grow on all types of surfaces. It’s well know that mold grows in areas that have been flooded or simply prone to heavy moisture.
There are always chances of its growth near washrooms, store rooms or any specific area where the the humidity level is higher than normal. It can be visible or invisible and, either way, it can be responsible for creating allergic reactions. So, you should not take it for granted and it’s recommended you hire a professional mold testing company who are experienced registered and licensed for quality work. This requires a professional approach: don’t go for the cheap mold testing devices as they will not give you accurate results.
You should also avoid using a general contractor who offers you a lesser rate but who does not know much about professional mold testing and would not be able to accurately interpret your results. It’s important to use independent mold testing services who will give you unbiased results as opposed to ‘mold remediation’ company who have been know to exaggerate the levels of mold in your home.
