Home Air Check {Review & Giveaway}

Did you know that indoor air quality is a much greater health hazard than outdoor air pollution? According to the EPA, indoor pollutants can be up to 100 times higher than outdoors making it significantly important to take certain measures to protect your air quality. Some simple ways to reduce indoor toxins are by using natural cleaning products, vacuuming (with a HEPA filter) regularly, taking shoes off at the door, and using exhaust fans/opening windows to ventilate whenever possible. Regardless of taking measures to maintain a healthy home environment, it is still a recommended to test the air quality so you can be certain of what you are breathing each day while also having a baseline assessment.

Home Air Check offers advanced and accurate professional-grade testing that identifies the presence of most major VOC’s, formaldehyde, and growing mold that may be lurking in your home’s air. With skilled chemists and the leading consultative air testing lab in the US (Prism Analytical Technologies, Inc), you can be confident in the accuracy of your analysis. The three tests currently available are the following:

Volatile Organic Compound Test: Measures and reports total levels of VOCs and actively growing mold in your home.

Formaldehyde Test: Measures and reports level of the toxic chemical formaldehyde in your home. New or newly remodeled homes should be tested for formaldehyde.

Tobacco Smoke Test: Detects presence of specific chemical compounds known to be present in secondhand smoke (or environmental tobacco smoke) and third-hand smoke and reports the level found in your home.

So how does it work? First, order your test kit. Test kits are very affordable for the convenience and quality of the results you are receiving. When your kit arrives it will include the sample tubes, pump, test form, and instructions. To set up the test you simply attach the sample tubes to the rental pump for a short period of time (detailed how-to is included in the instructions). Once you are finished testing, send everything back within 14 days in the same box with the prepaid shipping label. A full report including results, potential sources, and actions you should take will then be emailed to you within 5 days.

I completed a Formaldehyde and VOC/Mold VOC test in my home and was very pleased with how easy the set-up was and the comprehensive results I received once complete. I set the tests up in an area between my family room and dining room (which are the areas used most frequently). The tests each have a specific amount of time they are to be connected to the pump which can range from 20 minutes to 2 hours for optimal results. I sent my samples back via the prepaid UPS shipping label and received my results a few days later. The results were easy to read and comprehend and I particularly liked the included list of possible sources of contaminants as well as targeted remedies. After completing the testing, I highly recommend Home Air Check to anyone looking for a convenient, affordable, and accurate indoor air analysis. (below is portion of my results)

    In order to try and keep the air in our house “clean” we try not to spray any harsh chemicals too often, we also try to make sure we’re letting it air out.

  2. YVONNE WOODSTOCK says

    We open our sliding glass doors and windows for fresh air cross breezes.
    We don’t use Teflon cookware at all.
    We try to minimize chemicals used in cleaning too.
    We stopped buying and using scented wax melts that we have always LOVED
    I keep house clean and have good vaccuum.
    This winter we bought a high rated tower HEPA air purifier with UV light that we run 24/7 on high anytime that the windows are not open.

    We try to air the house out but something’s not right, we all are having some issues be it cough, hives, not feeling well!!

    We only use homemade (toxin free) products in our home for cleaning and care. We don’t use the air conditioning and try to cool our home naturally in the summer-time, no candles unless they are beeswax! no cookware that isn’t safe, loads of plants inside to improve air quality…I could go on forever : ) The one thing I haven’t done is test our air, and I’d be so so curious to see the results!

    I’ve been gradually switching over to all-natural cleaning products. I really like Method, Mrs. Meyers, Grove Collaboration, and ECOS. We change our air filters often and use ones specially formulated to reduce allergens. I know there is so much more we could be doing, though!
