Indoor air quality in Nevada is something many of us take for granted. However, if you have dirty air ducts or an air conditioner whose filter has not been cleaned in quite some time, you may be surprised to learn just what is floating around in your air that you and your family members ultimately breathe in.
At Ambient Edge, we are one of the top companies in the Paradise area to perform indoor air quality inspection and testing – and with good reason. We are thorough and use top-of-the-line equipment to ensure that the air you are breathing is just as clean as the air we would want our families to breathe in. Give us a call at (888) 240-8283 to schedule your air quality inspection today.
One of the things we check during our air quality testing is whether your air ducts are clean. Duct cleaning is incredibly important because if left unkempt, dust, debris, and even mold can build up in your ducts, which your HVAC system will then shoot out at you the next time you turn it on. Breathing in mold and other biological contaminants is never a good idea – and in some cases, it can become an incredibly serious situation.
Symptoms from exposure to allergens can grow worse over time, particularly for those with a preexisting condition such as asthma. At the very least, they can make you miserable, with symptoms like dizziness, watery eyes, and shortness of breath. You can eliminate all of that by improving the quality of your indoor air.
Chemical contaminants are no joke either. Particles of cleaning products, paints, and pesticides may all remain in your home long after you’ve used them. Plus, there are the added concerns of substances like radon and lead, which can be deadly.
Having an indoor air quality test performed can be your best defense against chemical contaminants because you find out whether a problem exists and how extensive it is. From there, you can take the necessary steps to alleviate it.
Combustion is just like it sounds – particles of products that are flammable. Cigarette smoke and other products containing carbon monoxide belong to the combustion contaminants family.
You should have a carbon monoxide detector in your home because the substance is colorless, odorless, and deadly. Even a minor case of carbon monoxide in the home can lead to health issues like dizziness, nausea, and weakness. An indoor air quality test can help you determine how much carbon monoxide, if any, is present in the air, and our team at Ambient Edge can then work with you on abolishing its source.
Home Test vs. Professional Inspection
You may be thinking to yourself, why should I call a professional when I can spend much less and get a home testing kit? You absolutely can do this. However, the problem with home testing kits is that they aren’t as thorough as is a professional inspection.
For instance, most home testing kits test for only one thing. So you may have to buy one test for radon, another for asbestos, another for lead, another for mold, and so on. While with Ambient Edge, you simply pay for a one-stop inspection and learn everything you need to know in only one visit!
If you have an air quality test performed and it comes back positive for one of the pollutants mentioned above, don’t panic. We here at Ambient Edge can help you do what is necessary to get these pollutants out of your home once and for all.
First, you can schedule preventative maintenance with us so that you never have to worry about missing a scheduled air filter change. Next, we can work with you on cleaning your air ducts, or implementing new or replacement ducts in the event you need more in a particular area, or the ones you have are worn out.
From there, we can help you remove additional sources of pollution, such as radon or lead. And we can recommend an upgrade to your HVAC system that will improve your home’s humidity level to between 30% and 50%. This is important because certain bacteria thrive in moist conditions. Reducing the amount of moisture in your home should also reduce the number of bacteria present.
