Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air quality, or IAQ, refers to the air quality within and around buildings and structures, with a focus on how it relates to the health and comfort of building occupants. Whether you live in an apartment, townhouse or single-family home, an old home or newly built home, understanding and controlling common pollutants indoors can help reduce your risk of indoor health concerns that may be experienced soon after exposure or, possibly, years later.

There are 3 main types of air pollutants: biological, chemical and radiological. These pollutants can be the result of contraction materials, home furnishing/finishes and products such as air fresheners, smoking, cleaning and renovations. Our team is an official member of the Indoor Air Quality Association so you can trust us to properly assess and address the IAQ in your home. Contact one of our professionals today to discuss your concerns and arrange for an indoor air quality consultation.

Indoor Air Quality Testing

Frequently Asked Questions

Indoor Air Quality Testing uses specialized equipment to test the content of your air. Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) tests use this specialized equipment to detect 3 types of air pollutants:

  • Biological pollutants
  • Chemical pollutants
  • Radiological pollutants

If the levels of pollutants are determined to be too high, we will determine the best possible treatment for our air quality.

Because of advances in technology, indoor air quality testing (IAQ testing) has become very accurate. IAQ testing can accurately determine the levels of the pollutants in your house. On its own, IAQ testing can not determine the source of the pollutants, that is where our experienced staff come in – we know how to identify where the pollutants come from so we can efficiently treat your air quality.
First Response Cleaning offers Indoor Air Quality Testing for all kinds of environments, from residential to business properties. If you would like to test your building’s indoor air quality, simply contact us today.
Indoor Air Quality testing detects all kinds of biological, chemical, or radiological pollutants. These pollutants can be dust from normal living, mold from humidity, emissions from household cleaners or building materials. IAQ can be affected by gasses such as carbon monoxide, radon, or other volatile organic compounds as well as microbial contaminants such as mold or bacteria or any other mass or energy stressor that can have a negative impact on our health.
While some home test kits are available on the market to test for specific indoor air pollutants, the best way to get the most accurate indoor air quality reading is to hire experts such as First Response Cleaning to test the quality of the air for you. We use only the most technologically advanced and sensitive equipment to give you the most accurate readings.
