Air pollution and air quality, both indoors and outdoors, are still the top priority health and public health issues today. After making a home purchase offer, some customers want to test the indoor air quality as part of a home inspection.
This could be part of a broader call for environmental studies that include water, air, soil and hazardous materials, or it could relate specifically to indoor air due to the increased sensitivity of family members with respiratory problems.

Air quality testing is usually not part of a home or pest inspection. In fact, it's usually one of those things, a long list of things that are specifically excluded from the home supervisor's contractual obligations. However, some items that are part of an inspector's checklist can provide a subjective assessment of air quality or identify conditions that affect it.
Additionally, some home inspectors offer additional services that inspect or test the atmosphere for certain pollutants and these may be suggested by alternative professionals. There are also informal techniques that individuals use themselves.
What are the sources of pollutants that affect indoor air standards and how do you study them? The worst causes are by-products of burning kerosene, coal, tobacco, oil, gas, or wood. They are brought back from unventilated or unventilated smokers and kilns. Contaminants can come from related building materials such as pressed wood or insulation.
Some cleaning products and alternative household products, especially those containing volatile organic compounds, remove substances that affect air quality. Delivery is done outdoors; Pollutants, pesticides and radon in the atmosphere are filtered inside homes.
