A home allergy step is one of the first steps you can take towards increasing the overall health of you and your family members. Many people are unaware of all of the possible allergens in and around their homes.
While many people view their homes as a safe haven from the outdoors, they may be surprised to find that the air indoors is even more polluted than the air outside. With all the time we spend indoors, the air we breathe should be as clean as possible.
Testing the air in your home can go a long way to eliminating allergic reactions that may seem to have no known cause.
Should I Test The Air in my Home?

Others simply go about their day feeling fine. While you may not be aware of it, certain allergens and pollutants in your air can cause health risks over time. Once you become aware of the pollutants and allergens in your air, you can take action to remove them.
What is a Home Allergen Test?

A home allergen test using equipment to measure the amount of unseen particles in the air that can be a possible danger to your lungs.
These tests help homeowners determine if their air is healthy to breathe and what contaminants are present. You will become aware of what can be done to improve the air quality in your home as well.
Possible Sources of Poor Air Quality
Poor air quality in the home can come from a variety of sources. The most common and well-known sources are pet dander and pollen, but there are many more subtle sources. When looking into air pollutants, many homeowners forget to look at mold or pollutants that result from household cleaning supplies.
Another possible source that may be causing poor air quality is a lack of maintenance on the ventilation systems in your home. Forgetting to replace air filters can contribute or introduce pollutants and allergens into your home and lungs.
