Studies conducted by the C.D.C., University of Florida, and the National Board of Health and Human Sciences have all concluded by testing in just about every environment that humans habitate.
The findings were over whelming and the outcome has stalled. Armed with direct knowledge of household pollutants, noxious gases, and household cleaning products that all cause elevated levels of very dangerous particulate matter and microbial irritants that cause more damage to lungs than outdoor air. It is very important to check with your doctor when you or someone in your home has ongoing respitory infections, and breathing connected ailments.
Doctors continue to through antibiotics at illness that can be controlled by the air quality in your home. Get your home tested by a licensed, experienced, and insured air quality technician today.
The discovery will make you a true believer.

I had never heard of airPLUS before. This is great. Most people are not aware of the level of particulate that is aerosolized in their homes.

In our industry, it’s all about filtration. Regardless of what the pollutant is, filtration will remove it…it’s indiscriminate. And you can do it yourself with industrial grade results for less than you’d think.

I also like the testing component as long as you keep in mind that testing, especially a single air test, can have limitations.

Cool concept though…

Thanks!

I think a mold air sample test in the middle of the home should also be included – not just radon. Mold is a serious issue in most fixer-uppers and is repsonsible for a lot of asthma issues in the young and elderly. For more information on mold please do some research – it’s amazing how many people do-it-themselves when mold is involved and just bleach the walls which is the wrong way to go…

It is a great program and I wish more builders would get involved. It’s great to keep educating people about these programs.

There are some other programs that homeowners can utilize to control their environment before it controls them. They can hire Indoor Air & Surface Quality professionals who would come in a do a free 10 Point Healthy Verification for them.

The services that they offer are often very affordable. They utilize nanotechnology to eliminate harmful germs (mold, mildew, bacteria, algae..etc) from indoor air and surfaces.

Indoor air quality is really an important determinant of population health and wellbeing. Exposure to the hazardous airborne agents present in many indoor spaces causes adverse effects such as respiratory disease, allergy and irritation of the respiratory tract. To a large extent, the inadequate quality of indoor air arises from a poor articulation, appreciation and understanding of the basic principles underlying the policies and actions related to indoor air quality.

It is without a doubt that the air quality inside of your home is loaded with all kinds of toxins, microbial particules, Molds, Radon gas, Lead poison, Asbestos particules, and on and on. What to do?
Have your home tested by a qualified, insured, and certified air quality inspector. This way, he or she can provide you with the a report that will reccommend a specific type of air scrubbing system needed to clean the air in your home or office.

I leave my window open whenever possible and sleep just under it. That way my body can repair itself using as much oxygen as it needs — except nowadays the growing population is producing more pollution that puts out more carbon dioxide and methane, so fresh air is becoming an endangered species. Soon they’ll be selling oxygen in supermarkets along with distilled water.
