Home Air Check
Unhealthy indoor air is often undetectable by smell. It is usually caused by normal everyday consumer items. The good news is that it can often be easily remedied, once you know what’s in your air.
We’ve compiled a checklist below that works as a general guide to the main causes of poor indoor air quality that can help determine whether you should check the air in your home. If more than one apply, the probability that your indoor air quality could adversely affect your health increase substantially. Finding out what’s in your air is the first step in making it healthy, and it’s no longer a prohibitively expensive thing to do.
