Home Air Check
Sometimes it's what you don't know that can hurt you.Whether you are looking to buy a home or sell one, you will want to make sure the air in the home is safe to breathe. A Home Air Check Professional test measures and reports on the air in the home for chemicals and hidden mold that could be detrimental to your health or that could cost you thousands of dolllars to remediate if left undetected.
Poor indoor air quality (IAQ) is a serious health issue, and public health experts advise prospective home buyers to take the initiative and test for indoor air pollutants. Home Air Check Professional is a low-cost indoor air quality assessment that can find potential hidden issues with a home and protect your future investment. Performing a comprehensive home IAQ audit just makes good, healthy sense.
An Action Plan to Improve Indoor Air Quality
Performed by Seacliff Inspections prior to a property sale, a Home Air Check Professional test is the only composite home air quality assessment available today. It monitors for hundreds of chemicals in the air (called VOCs or Volatile Organic Compounds) and active mold growth with a single air sample. It not only reports on the total levels of VOCs and mold present in the home, but it also identifies the potential sources of air pollutants (e.g., paint, adhesives, flooring, cabinets, heating fuel, dead animals and hundreds of other products and materials that emit gases into the air) giving you actionable information on the steps necessary to improve the air quality before the sale.
Should your Home Air Check Professional test results indicate excessive VOC levels and you want to know specifically what chemicals are present, a more detailed analysis can be requested for an additional charge that will give a complete breakdown of the top 10 chemical compounds in the air. There is no need to take another air sample. If needed, a trained chemist will be available to you to help with interpretation of the analysis results.
Buying a home with existing IAQ issues can subject you and your family to serious health hazards, and might require you to incur large clean-up costs, reduce your property value, and make your home hard to sell in the future. With a Home Air Check Professional IAQ assessment, you can make your home purchasing decision allowing you to breathe a little more easily.
