As a home or business owner, you want to be sure that the air in your residence or commercial building is clean, safe, and healthy for your family, friends, and customers. Hiring a team of professionals to test your indoor air quality is one of the best ways to learn about the air your breathe and determine effective solutions to any issues. But how can you know when indoor air quality testing is necessary?

The truth is, it may not be apparent that your air quality is poor. For this reason, regular testing is helpful for identifying issues before poor indoor air quality threatens the wellness of the people in your home or business. If you do notice signs of poor indoor air quality, however, you should contact a professional right away. You may also want to schedule an indoor air quality test if it has been a long time since your air was last evaluated.

Signs of Poor Indoor Air Quality

Although air quality issues are not always obvious, they can become more evident as a problem worsens. It is crucial to get your air tested as soon as possible if you have concerns.

You may have issues with your indoor air quality if you notice signs such as:

  • Weird smells: A lurking, odd odor in your home or business could point to unclean air ducts or similar air quality issues. The smell may worsen or become more noticeable when you have your air conditioning or heating on.
  • Excessive dust: Unclean air ducts will release dust into a building. If your property is especially dusty, you should probably have your indoor air quality tested.
  • Respiratory issues: Poor indoor air quality can cause health issues such as trouble breathing, sore throat, and congestion. These problems can be especially troublesome for people with asthma or other existing respiratory conditions. Please contact West Coast Air Conditioning if you are experiencing ongoing health concerns that may be caused by poor indoor air quality.
