It is very important to check your homes air quality frequently to make sure that you are not breathing in harmful toxins such as mold, gas, and other allergens.

It can sit in the foundation of your home and continuously build up as it releases int your homes air. Radon is difficult to detect as it is colorless and odorless. This is one reason as to why many homeowners may not notice it.
The Pesticides you use can be floating around in your home
Almost everyone has used some form of pesticide while they have been in their home. They may have used it to eliminate pests such as termites, ants, mice, etc. Although these pesticides may seem helpful as they eliminate the annoying pests, they may come back with negative affects on your health. Pesticides can cause lasting health concerns and when you do use pesticides, it is also important to think about an air quality test with it.
