The Need for Wellness Testing

The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) states that indoor air pollution may be 2-5 times higher than outdoor air pollution. Indoor air pollutants have been ranked among the top 5 Environmental risks to public health. People spend up to 90% of their time indoors, which creates continued exposure to indoor contaminants.

According to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) “Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) refers to the air quality within and around buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of building occupants. Understanding and controlling common pollutants indoors can help reduce your risk of indoor health concerns. Health effects from indoor air pollutants may be experienced soon after exposure or, possibly, years later”. As people spend most of their time in their homes, it is important to make sure exposures to indoor contaminants are minimized. Indoor contaminants and pollutants include volatile organic compounds, formaldehyde, allergens, mold, bacteria, carbon monoxide and small airborne particles. Sources indoors originate from common household items and activities including cleaning products, furniture, upholstery, food preparation areas, bathrooms and garages.

Significant research shows the negative impact of poor indoor air and environmental quality on peoples work productivity, illness rates, school and work absenteeism, reduction in school and work performance and impacts on respiratory and sensory health. Frequently people in their homes are exposed to harmful conditions and don’t realize it until symptoms occur which may be years after exposure. Recent documented examples of this include issues with Chinese drywall and exposures to formaldehyde from wood floors. In both cases large nationwide companies installed defective materials into people’s homes without the owner’s knowledge. Exposures occurred from gases emitted from the products, causing respiratory and sensory issues.
