Get Lasting Relief From Indoor Allergens

Studies of human exposure to air pollutants by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) indicate that indoor levels of pollutants may be 2 to 5 times – and occasionally more than 100 times – higher than outdoor pollutant levels.

We can screen your environment and develop strategies for you to implement that will provide noticeable and ongoing relief.

Allergies are not just an outside problem

In today’s society, people are spending (on average) 90% of their time inside some kind of building (e.g. home, workplace, recreational). If you count transit times between locations people are spending close to 24 hours a day inside.

Keeping those statistics in mind and factoring in current building trends, which are geared towards more air tight and earth friendly designs, we can start to see where problems can arise. Now, although air tight and earth friendly may sound great (and it can be), it does come with some baggage. The baggage we’re referring to is the maintenance required to keep your indoor air quality (IAQ) in check under these conditions. Problems with indoor allergies mostly come as a result of poor ventilation and cleanliness.

We have two screening options:

The first option includes individual testing and quantitative analysis for any or all of the following Allergens: Cat Allergens (Fel d 1), Dog Allergens (Can f 1), Cockroach Allergen ( Bla g 1), Dust Mite Allergens (Der p 1, Der f 1), Mouse Allergens (Mus m 1), Rat Allergens (Rat n 1), in household dust.

The second option (at a discounted rate) includes all of the following: QuantitativeEnzyme-Linked ImmunoSorbent Assay (ELISA) analysis for a combination of Cat, Dog, Dust Mite and Cockroach allergens. This is restricted to the following five allergens: Der p1, Der f1, Can f1, Fel d1, and Bla g1.

Indoor allergens are manageable

All of the aforementioned can be an asthma trigger to both children and adults who are asthmatic. However, The good news about indoor allergen problems is they can be effectively managed. The first step to fixing this problem is to know exactly what you’re allergic to. You can see your doctor to find out what your specific allergies are. Once you know what the specific allergens that you need to control are you can have your home tested. Our company can test your air as well as collect dust samples throughout your home. These samples will then be analyzed by a certified lab technician to identify the specific allergens present. Furthermore, based on the number of samples taken, the length of the sample time, and the location of the test, the total amount of allergens present will be quantified as well.

The sum total of this information will allow us to prescribe accurate treatments specific to your indoor environment.
