What is Air Quality Monitoring?

  home advice

The EPA ranks indoor air quality among the top environmental threats to public health.

If you're concerned about your home's indoor air quality--or if you or family members suffer from asthma, allergies, or other respiratory problems--Revival Energy Group can help. We offer air quality monitoring and remediation services

The Home AirAdvice® Indoor Air Quality Monitor

The Indoor Air Quality monitor from AirAdvice is the ultimate solution for understanding your home’s air quality. AirAdvice takes seven different readings every single minute over a four-day period and provides an easy-to-read, detailed report of its findings.

It looks at:

  • Dust particles
  • Chemicals (VOC's)
  • Carbon Monoxide
  • Carbon Dioxide
  • Humidity
  • Temperature
  • Radon (optional)

How does it work?

indoor air quality

A Revival Energy technician will typically set up an AirAdvice monitor on a Thursday or a Friday, placing it near the main living area of your home or placing multiple units in locations around your home. We hook it up to a power connection and, if available and desired by the client, a phone a line enabling us to monitor the data online. 
The monitor then spends four days in your home (we choose a Thursday or Friday so we get both weekend and weekday readings). The monitor takes seven separate air samples per minute, and records all the data. The following Monday or Tuesday (depending on when the monitor was originally placed), we retrieve the monitor and send the recordings to AirAdvice. They analyze the data and generate a detailed report, which we forward to you.

Where do indoor air quality problems come from?

Air quality issues occur for a variety of reason and from many different sources. The monitoring allows us to identify the issues, if any exist, and implement solutions. After improvements are made, the results can be tested with further air monitoring so the results are guaranteed.

Indoor air quality problems may come from any of the following:  

  • Bathrooms (mold, mildew, bacteria, viruses, cleaning agents)
  • Bedrooms (dust, dust mites, bacteria, viruses, pet dander)
  • Attic (asbestos, dust, formaldehyde)
  • Living areas (carbon monoxide, tobacco smoke, organic chemicals, pet dander)
  • Garage (carbon monoxide, paints & solvents, mold & mildew)
  • Yard (pollen, dust, pesticides and herbicides)
  • Kitchen (carbon monoxide, cleaning agents, formaldehyde, smoke)

Radon

Radon is an odorless, colorless gas that is the second leading cause of cancer in the United States. The only way to know if radon is present in a home is to perform a test for it.

Clark County has one of the highest rates of radon gas in the state of Washington, it is also a big problem in many parts of Portland, Oregon. 

Revival Energy Group now offers Radon testing and mitigation services.
