Volatile Organic Compounds (also known as VOCs) are released as gases from an assortment of solids or liquids. VOCs are comprised of a mixture of organic compounds, most of which can have chronic conditions that affect your wellbeing. Often VOCs are up to ten times the concentration indoors than they are outside. What makes it worse is that VOCs are released by many common household goods.
How can indoor air quality testing help improve your quality of life?
How Poor Indoor Air Quality Can Impact Your Health
The quality of air found in a home varies between regions, houses, and even rooms of a home. Though polluted air can seep in from outside, it's just as likely that your home's air quality is being affected by appliances and materials within your home.
Indoor air quality can be affected when pollutants crop up in your home. Particulates; gaseous compounds; and chemicals from furniture, appliances, paint, and more, can fill the air and thus affect body and health. One of the most common sources of air quality contamination is VOCs, or Volatile Organic Compounds. By and large, VOCs are caused by combustion within the home, with the leading sources being stovetops, fireplaces, furnaces, and tobacco smoke. Mold can also be another major problem, with an effect on air quality that can induce illnesses, rashes, and more.
When VOCs build up in a home, they can cause anything from headaches and nausea to more severe issues like skin rashes, breathing difficulties, cancer, or even death.
The Benefits of Having Indoor Air Quality Testing Done
With air contaminates having such a severe impact on health, it's no wonder someone would want to have air quality testing done to ensure their home is safe for them and their loved ones. Bad air quality affects the most vulnerable in a household first, causing illness in children and elderly household members because their bodies are not as hardy or suited to battle against dangerous chemicals.
When you have indoor air quality testing done, you empower yourself to protect your family by gaining a better understanding of any dangers hidden within your home. After an air quality test is complete, you will be able to treat problem areas, for example, by eliminating a hidden mold infestation or replacing a faulty furnace.
Whether you find any major air quality red flags or not, the knowledge that you and your family are safe should bring peace of mind and the knowledge that you're doing everything you can to keep them all happy and healthy.
