Allergen Testing


Allergens are airborne substances that cause an allergic reaction in humans and pets. Creating a comfortable atmosphere and ensuring you can breathe easy in your home is our goal.  Allergens come in many different forms including dust, pet dander, pollen, mold, and smoke. Allergy Watch states that health experts estimate that 35 million Americans suffer from upper respiratory tract symptoms that are allergic reactions to airborne allergens.

 


 


HOW WE TEST

Our allergen testing services include an indoor assessment of pollutants to interpret the levels of dangerous toxins and allergens in the air. It is important to consider testing your indoor air quality when allergy-like symptoms arise such as sneezing, coughing, water eyes, itching skin, wheezing, runny nose, and more.


 

We can test for many different types of allergens including but not limited to:

  • Cat
  • Dog
  • Roach
  • Dust mites
  • Mice

 Some unexpected indoor allergens include:

  • Cockroaches
  • Fabrics
  • New furniture
  • Glue 
  • Pillows
  • Blankets
  • Plants
  • Stuffed toys
  • Floor mats
  • Latex
  • Damp materials

There are many hidden areas in your home where allergens can collect. Your carpet is one of the main culprits for collecting allergens that were once airborne. Everything from pet dander and mold is collected in the fibers of your carpet, and unless regular cleaning is performed, those allergens are susceptible to becoming airborne again with simply walking around your home. Regular carpet cleaning will extract allergens from carpet fibers if done properly. A cleaning process called “hot water extraction” also known as steam cleaning, is most efficient in ridding carpet of allergens. 


High-efficiency particulate air filters (HEPA) are very beneficial to those who are concerned with allergens. There are many different products that contain HEPA filters, but they all aide in the same ways. HEPA filters cleanse the air of all the microbial airborne particulates and, when vacuuming, ensure that dust and dander do not return into the atmosphere. HEPA filters are also available for central air conditioners which create better indoor air quality overall.


There are many affordable products that can be purchased and delivered to your home as soon as tomorrow. As mentioned above, HEPA filters help improve indoor air quality by cleaning the air and trapping particulates. There are many air purifiers, filters, and vacuums that have a HEPA filter built in. Purchasing a built in air purification system that works alongside your HVAC system can do wonders for your air quality.

 

Tea tree oil is a natural remedy that can aide in purifying the air your home. This natural fungicide does not get rid of all types of allergens, but it can reduce mold formation by destroying fungi. People who live in wet climates such as Georgia and Florida can benefit from using tea tree oil daily.
