What Does Indoor Air Quality Inspection Look for?

Here are just a few reasons why the people of Helena should have an air quality test performed.

Gas Leaks and combustion

Household gas stoves, furnaces and space heaters, if not properly maintained can cause indoor air pollution that not only makes you sick but also turns your home into a safety hazard. If the property does not have proper ventilation, then the gases remain in the air waiting to be inhaled. There is also an added danger, what with the combustibility of some of these gases. Meaning: lack of detection or maintenance could result in a fire or worse, an explosion.

Radon

This colorless and odorless gas, comes mostly from low level decaying uranium, found in soil. When it is exposed to the open air radon is harmless because it dissipates. However, a crack in a foundation can lead to a radon buildup in a home or building. This is extremely dangerous, since radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the USA.

Tobacco Smoke

Tobacco smoke is one of the leading indoor air pollutants. Environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) can contribute significantly to acute and chronic health issues, including coughing, asthma, heart disease, and lung cancer. Not only can humans suffer—buildings can, too. Smoke lingers indoors and can leave behind unpleasant odors. The particles in smoke can also cause yellowish-brown stains on walls, ceilings, and floors, which can be expensive to repair.

Asbestos

You have probably all heard of the dangers of asbestos and how exposure can lead to various health problems, even death. Although newly constructed buildings do not use asbestos as material, there still is a significant amount of asbestos in older homes and businesses throughout Helena.
