Home Maintenance and Indoor Air Quality



We spend a lot of time in our homes, offices and even cars but it seems that our vehicles get all the attention.

On average we spend $500-$1500 dollars per year on maintaining our vehicles, but what do we spend on our homes or places of business?  With more and more health issues arising from poor indoor air quality due to mold, asbestos and other hazards it would only make sense to have your air tested once or twice a year to ensure there are no issues or catch small ones before they become large.

Sick office  employees will cost the business owner money. Just like your home it may also have poor indoor air quality which can cause huge costs to business’s due to sick days, sick leaves, and lost productivity not to mention affecting the health and well being of your hires.

Mold issues can pop up from simple things such as high humidity and small moisture leaks, if caught early enough they can most likely be dealt with at minimal cost, but if the issue festers and left unattended then the costs can escalate.

Many times I have seen and re-mediated mold issues that where caused by something as simple as a leaking shutoff valve under a sink which went unnoticed for a weeks, months, or even years. What would have been a $5 dollar fix becomes thousands of dollars in remediation and repairs. It all comes down to common sense, nothing will last forever and everything will require repair or maintenance once in a while.


The sooner you identify the problem and fix it the less painful it will be.  A good friend of mine once told me “expensive is cheap and cheap is expensive”
