What Our Home Air Quality Test Identifies
With our state-of-the-art testing equipment and experience in the industry, we can help you identify any issues with your indoor air quality and provide you with the solutions you need to breathe easily. Some areas of your home (like basements and garages) tend to accumulate harmful pollutants.
Particles are generally a cause for concern. When daily average levels are above 10 μg/m3, they can trigger asthma and allergy symptoms. At levels above 35 μg/m3, they can harm healthy adults by causing emphysema and diminished lung capacity. Children, the elderly, pregnant women, and individuals with preexisting lung conditions are more susceptible to health issues due to harmful air particles.
- PM10 particles are small enough to pass through the throat and nose and enter the lungs. Their diameters are usually 10 µm and smaller.
- PM2.5 particles reduce visibility and cause the air to appear foggy with elevated levels. Usually referred to as “haze.” Their diameter is 2.5 µm and smaller.
- PM1 particles: slip directly through the lungs into the bloodstream and are thus spread to the organs because of their ultra-fine size. (1µm or smaller)
When average levels of chemicals are above 500 μg/m3, they are known to trigger asthma and allergy symptoms. These chemicals’ stressful but otherwise manageable side effects are eye and nose irritations. Some people can even experience nausea and headaches. However, they usually affect healthy adults at very high levels by overworking the liver and kidneys. Our state-of-the-art air quality test will help identify substances like carbon monoxide and formaldehyde, but also identify excess volatile organic compounds (VCOs) such as:
- Gasoline and fuels
- Paints, stains, strippers, and finishes.
- Aerosol sprays
- Cleaners and room deodorizers
Levels above 750 ppm (parts per million) are a cause for concern. At higher levels, carbon dioxide inside your home can contribute to what the Environmental Protection Agency describes as “sick building syndrome.” This syndrome leads to fatigue, headache, breathing difficulties, nausea, strained eyes, and itchy skin. CO2 is rare, but the EPA recommends a maximum concentration of CO2 of 1000 ppm (0.1%) for continuous exposure.
Comfortable temperatures fall within the range of 68°F and 75°F. Temperatures are the most comfortable when steady, with fluctuations of less than 1.5°. Ideally, your home temperature should be constant between all areas. However, identifying uncomfortably fluctuating temperatures is essential to your home’s comfort. When uneven temperatures fluctuate around your house, you may experience a chilling sensation or goosebumps. At AirGenie, we work hard to maintain your home temperatures steady and guarantee comfort.
According to the American Lung Association, your home’s relative humidity should be near 50%. When the air is too dry, people typically feel colder. Your nose, throat, and lungs can become irritated and prone to infection—conversely, air that is too moist defeats perspiration, the body’s natural cooling mechanism. High moisture also can lead to condensation within walls and on windows, which can cause mold. Our indoor air quality test for mold and humidity can help identify the cause of respiratory problems in your home.
When average levels are 6 ppm or higher, carbon monoxide is a cause for concern. When levels are above 25 ppm, immediate action should be taken. Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless, poisonous gas produced by combustion and, therefore, hard to identify. Because Carbon Monoxide replaces the oxygen in your bloodstream, exposure to relatively low levels can cause headaches and nausea. At relatively high levels, it can cause memory problems and, ultimately, death.
