Indoor air quality improvement begins with professional indoor air quality testing and is maintained through regular indoor air quality monitoring. After testing, our team will work with you to determine the best steps towards IAQ remediation. From asthma irritants to exposure to dangerous fumes like VOCs or radon, it’s important to test, remediate and retest to ensure the safety of the air you breathe at or home or in your business.
Under the Clean Air Act (CAA) the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets limits on air pollution and emissions of air pollutants throughout the United States. However, it’s important to note that the EPA does not regulate indoor air quality. They do, however, make recommendations and set standards for what level of exposure is acceptable for certain common indoor air pollutants; specifically radon and serum cotinine,
And testing your indoor air is the only way to find out if your air quality is acceptable or not.
The EPAs indoor air quality recommendations focus on some of the biggest threats to the quality of the air we breathe like tobacco smoke. Unfortunately, many of these contaminants are released naturally or are off-gassed from household products and construction materials and supplies.
Simply put, yes. Indoor air quality is very important to the health of you and the other occupants of your space. Testing the air in your home, business, or commercial building is the only way to know if the air you’re breathing is contaminated, and at what level.

When you hire Aire Serv to complete indoor air quality testing at your home or business, our technicians complete thorough testing and provide actionable next steps to meet recommended EPA indoor air quality standards.
After testing the air in your home or business, your local Aire Serv technician will work with you to determine the steps that need to be taken to improve the indoor air quality in your space. These steps can include anything from changing air filters to air duct cleaning, regulating humidity levels, and installing air purifiers or cleaners. After cleaning or installation of air-improvement technologies, your local Aire Serv technician will come back to retest the air in your home.
Based on the results of your air quality test, Aire Serv technicians will recommend retesting or indoor air quality monitoring for 90 days to three years after the initial test.
We recommend regular, professional indoor air quality monitoring at your home or business to ensure that the recommended air quality remediation steps are working. Your local Aire Serv technician will provide an indoor air quality monitoring schedule based on your specific needs.

If at-home tests are positive for contaminants, further testing by an Aire Serv professional can help you narrow down the causes of the indoor air pollution and recommend a course of action to make improvements.
