Indoor Air Quality: Residential
Home air quality is a growing health issue throughout the US. Most homeowners and potential home buyers are not aware there is an accurate and inexpensive way to determine the level of unwanted chemicals in home air. Additionally many states and lending institutions now recommend that a home air quality audit be performed during a property sale.
IAQ Home Survey is an accurate, simple to use and cost effective tool for use in determining airborne chemicals (VOCs) and active growing mold (MVOCs) in home air. With a single sample, IAQ Home Survey reports the air quality via the total levels of VOCs (TVOC) and MVOCs (TMVOC). Most importantly, the chemical information is translated into categories of potential sources. This allows an action plan for improving air quality to be developed. In the case of a real estate transaction, it identifies the chemical contamination contributed by the home itself.
IAQ Home Survey is a cost effective tool for indoor air quality assessments. It is particularly useful in real estate transactions. A home inspector can easily and cost- effectively perform an air audit in conjunction with the home inspection.
