Home Air Quality Testing in the Triangle

When you think of a home inspection, you most likely are thinking of the structural integrity of the home, the soundness of the electrical panel, and the reliability of the HVAC system. Of course, those are important, but too often, homeowners don’t have the air quality checked which can leave them vulnerable to respiratory issues, headaches, and skin problems. We can perform a home air quality test during a home inspection to ensure you’re purchasing a safe, healthy haven for you and your family. 

What Is a Home Air Quality Test?

Air Quality Testing in Triangle NCConsider the air circulating through the home you may be buying. Much of it is being continually cycled through HVAC ducts after entering the home through a crawl space and gaps around the windows. If the home has been vacant for awhile, humidity fluctuations can create a breeding ground for spores and bacteria to spread unchecked. 

With our home air quality test, you’ll receive an in-depth look at the presence of pollutants and toxins in your home, including bacteria, mold spores, and fungus.  We don’t just hand you a report, we’ll sit down with you to go over the results and address issues that need to be remedied immediately and the steps you need to take to do so.  

Who Should Have a Home Air Quality Test?

Anyone having a home inspection should include a home air quality test to make sure the property is safe and healthy. In addition to homebuyers, we recommend the following people get their air tested: 

  • Homeowners putting their property on the market;

  • Landlords or investors about to rent out a property;

  • Anyone experiencing a sudden onset or increase in respiratory symptoms, migraines, and skin rashes.

  • You notice a different odor in the home.

  • Your respiratory symptoms or headaches are present in a specific area of the home.

  • You see visible presence of moisture, such as discolored spots on the ceiling or walls, or there has been a leak in the home.

Swab Tests for Spores

In addition to testing the air quality, which will show the presence of mold spores, bacteria, or fungus, we can also provide physical swab tests when there is visible areas of mold growth in the home. This allows us to determine the type of mold in your home, including the common cladosporium which is nontoxic but can trigger allergy and respiratory distress, to stachybotrys atra (black mold) which can be much more dangerous.
