SERVICE OVERVIEW

Keep your family or staff safe and healthy with an annual inspection of the air quality of your residential or commercial property.

Subject to safe and reasonable access, the inspection will report on the condition of each of the following areas on the date and time of inspection:

Carbon Dioxide (CO2) CO2 is a greenhouse gas that is natural and harmless in small quantities but as levels rise it can be dangerous to your health. Most commonly produced by the air we exhale, CO2 levels concentrate indoors with less ventilation. Exposure to high carbon dioxide (CO2) levels can cause: suffocation by displacement of air, incapacitation and unconsciousness, headaches, vertigo and double vision, inability to concentrate, tinnitus, seizures.
PM2.5 PM2.5 are very small particles usually found in smoke. They have a diameter of 2.5 micrometres (0.0025 mm) or smaller. PM2.5 particles are a common air pollutant. Breathing in PM2.5 particles can affect your health. PM2.5 particles are small enough for you to breath them deeply into your lungs. Sometimes particles can enter your bloodstream. People who are sensitive to air pollution might experience symptoms when PM2.5 levels are high. This includes people with heart or lung conditions. Symptoms can include wheezing, coughing, chest tightness and/or difficulty breathing. Common sources of PM2.5 particles include:
  • smoke from fires
  • smoke from wood heaters
  • car and truck exhausts
  • industry
PM10 PM10 are very small particles found in dust and smoke. They have a diameter of 10 micrometres (0.01 mm) or smaller. PM10 particles are a common air pollutant. PM10 particles are small enough to get into your throat and lungs. High levels of PM10 can make you cough, your nose run and eyes sting. People with heart or lung conditions might have more symptoms when PM10 levels are high. Symptoms can include wheezing, chest tightness or difficulty breathing. Some common examples of PM10 are:
  • Mold spores
  • Bacteria
  • Dust
  • Smoke
  • Airborne viral particles
Humidity Humidity is a measure of the amount of water vapor (moisture) in the air. Indoor humidity would ideally be between 30 to 50 percent. Low levels of indoor humidity lead to very dry air, which increases the prospect of catching airborne viruses like the flu, etc. This is due to their ability to survive longer in dry cool conditions and irritated nasal passages making it easier to catch them. Eczema can be exacerbated and dry skin can also be uncomfortable. Higher indoor humidity creates an environment for two of the most common and undesirable triggers for asthma and allergy – dust mites and mould.

Please Note: Room test results will be provided for 5 rooms (up to 20sqm per room) in the property. Additional rooms may be requested for an additional fee.

What You Should Know About Air Quality Home Inspection From Building Inspections Hub

There are many signs that can indicate the air quality in your home or office may be lacking. These include symptoms like burning eyes, scratchy throat or coughing, blocked nose, headaches, and even difficulty breathing. If you, your family, or staff are suffering from any of the above symptoms, it may be worth your while to contact a professional inspections company to determine the source of the problem.

  • One of the most common air quality issues that many homes and offices throughout Australia experience is the overabundance of carbon dioxide. This problem especially occurs in homes and offices with poor circulation. In small quantities, carbon dioxide is harmless, but when it builds up in a home or room, it may cause numerous health effects on your family.
  • PM2.5 and PM10 are small particles present in dust and smoke that can make your eyes and nose burn and sting and can cause a blocked nose, throat irritation, and coughing. It can be caused by various factors, including smoke from fires or wood heaters, dust, mould spores, and other pollutants.
  • High or low humidity can cause a number of health issues. High humidity may create the perfect breeding ground for mould and dust mites, while low humidity can cause dryness of the throat, mouth, and eyes. It also increases your chances of catching a cold or flu, as these viruses thrive in cool, dry conditions.
