We all need a home where we can feel safe and comfortable. But when indoor air pollutants take up residence in your living spaces, you could be at risk of serious illness and ailments from exposure to harmful substances.

That explains why it’s vitally important to test the indoor air quality of your residence. According to the Consumer Products Safety Commission, “A growing body of scientific evidence has indicated that the air within homes and other buildings can be more seriously polluted than the outdoor air in even the largest and most industrialized cities.”

Common Sense Inspections Inc. has a certified environmental consultant on staff, and we can come into your home and conduct thorough testing to check your air for mold, asbestos, lead, formaldehyde, and ultra fine particles that could have potential health consequences. Our goal is to identify any dangerous contaminants in your indoor air, and if possible, prevent illness before it becomes a problem.

To perform our IAQ testing, we use both an electronic moisture meter and a laser particle counter to measure and evaluate samples of your indoor air. The moisture meter tells us what levels of moisture are present in building materials while the particle counter reads the concentrations of different substances in the air. With this information in hand, we can then report back to you on the actual content of your indoor air and recommend corrective actions, if necessary.

The cumulative effect of indoor air pollutants is nothing to take lightly. If you’d like to breathe easier in your Los Angeles-area home, contact Common Sense Inspections Inc. as soon as possible to schedule your indoor air quality testing. You’ll never know what you’re breathing in until you test it out!
