Breathe Easy With A Thorough Environmental/Air Quality Inspection

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) figures that we spend up to 90% of our time indoors. While most of us spend a large majority of that time at work where we may not have control over the air quality, when we’re in our homes, we want to be confident we’re breathing in clean, healthy air. But that’s not always the case.

Many residential air ducts are filled with many of the following:

  • dust
  • dirt
  • chemical irritants
  • odors
  • bacteria
  • viruses
  • mold & microbial growth
  • allergens (pollen, for example!)
  • tobacco smoke
  • pet dander
  • dust mites
  • VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) from paints, varnishes, air fresheners, and other home products
  • and other contaminants

Homes can even be filled with radon (a radioactive gas, which is the second leading cause of lung cancer), or carbon monoxide (a colorless, odorless, sometimes fatal gas) from appliances like dryers, fireplaces, or stoves.

That’s the bad news. The good news is, with Call Us First Home INspection, you don’t have to wonder what the air quality is like in your home — we’ll let you know in a detailed report so you can make decisions about what needs to be done! We provide thorough residential environment/air quality inspections and will check for things that could negatively impact your health and the health of your family.

Poor air quality and environmental contaminants can contribute to things like headaches, respiratory irritation, infection, and skin rashes, and can trigger or exacerbate asthma. Those year-round allergies you think you have? They could just be due to allergens that are continuously being pushed through your air vents.
