How Indoor Air Quality Testing Can Improve Your Health in 2024

Posted in Air Quality, on June 27, 2024

Many families are paying more attention to how base respiratory health is affected by social and environmental factors. One of the most significant but overlooked elements of respiratory health is your home’s environment and all the various things you do and bring into it. Indoor air quality testing with SafeAir is one way to quantify your home’s air quality and its effect on your health. Other services, like radon or mold testing in Toronto, target specific issues that affect many homes across the city. The following article shares some of the top ways air quality testing can improve your health this year. 

What is Air Quality? 

indoor air quality testingWe all know what smog is—outdoor pollution caused by cars and industry. But what is indoor pollution, and does it affect your home? Indoor air pollution can be caused by many factors, including outdoor pollution from traditional sources. But many things in our modern lives can affect indoor air quality: renovation materials, paints, cleaning supplies, mold, moisture, and airflow are some of the most common. 

Health Effects of Indoor Poor Air Quality

Just like outdoor air pollution, indoor air quality problems affect your health. The primary method is through your respiratory system, which can breathe in small particles and become irritated or inflamed. The nose, eyes, and skin are next affected — but it doesn’t stop there. Mold, for example, can produce mycotoxins that are harmful to organs and the brain, and even short-term exposure may pose serious risks. 

Benefits of Indoor Air Quality Testing

While many homeowners realize they need mold testing in Toronto after smelling its distinct musty odour, other air quality issues are invisible to the senses. For example, radon gas is colourless, odourless, and makes no mark — many people only discover they’ve been exposed years later when they develop lung cancer. 

Preventing cancer is only one of the benefits of indoor air quality testing. Other benefits include:

  • Fewer allergy symptoms
  • Better sleep
  • Clearer skin and healthier hair
  • Better indoor temperature control
  • Improved overall health
  • Fewer headaches
  • Reduced congestion

Allergy and Asthma Management

Poor air quality and mould exposure have been linked to the childhood development of asthma, a condition that can affect people for decades and reduce the quality of life. Indoor air quality testing can help reduce and eliminate common environmental triggers for attacks. At SafeAir, we do this through comprehensive testing, monitoring, and adjustment to factors like humidity, airflow, and filtration, coming up with a personalized solution to help you reach your goals.
