Indoor Air Quality

Did You Know...

  • Indoor air pollution is something every home in America struggles with. Since 1970 homes have been built “tighter” to conserve energy.
  • The average person spends about 90 percent of their time indoors. 

  • The quality of indoor air can be two to five times (and even up to 100 times) more polluted than the worst outside air.

  • The EPA has listed indoor air quality as one of the top five environmental risks to public health.

  • Allergies, asthma, heart and lung disease have all been linked to poor air quality.

  • Everyday, the average American breathes in nearly 3,000 gallons of air.  During Covid-19, it is likely much higher.

  • Much like clean water it is important to ensure you are breathing clean indoor air.  

If you are concerned about the indoor air quality in your home or business, call Certified Indoor Environmental today. 

We offer air testing and a three-step process for improving indoor air quality.   We recommend that homeowners and property owners concerned about mold, allergens, improper ventilation, and the health of building occupants take proactive steps to have the indoor air tested professionally.

Our Three-step Process
  1. We test the air to determine the level of mold spores and locate the source of moisture or water that contributes to mold’s ability to grow and spread.
  2. We look for areas where ventilation is inadequate, insufficient, or lacking altogether. Without proper ventilation, air remains stagnant, moisture cannot evaporate, and humidity increases – all of which lead to the growth of mold.
  3. We defog and clean the air to reduce, if not eliminate, high concentrations of mold spores and other pollutants, and we also thoroughly dry and clean the area to eliminate all dampness and humidity.

  • High and low for hidden sources of water and moisture.
  • Deep recesses in attics for water damage and leaks from rain and wind.
  • Lower levels in buildings where moisture can penetrate walls and building sheathing or basements get flooded from an overflowing sump pump, burst pipe, or faulty plumbing.
  • HVAC systems where condensation occurs and mold spores enter to develop into an infestation.
  • Crawl spaces, as water and moisture infiltrates these spaces, does not escape, and turns into a mold contamination that can leach through to the interior space above it.
We provide:
  • a detailed report that lists our findings and recommendations as well as an individualized and affordable plan for remediating the problem.
  • a 36-month guarantee for peace of mind.
