Indoor Air Testing in Greater Spokane, Coeur D’Alene

It’s smart to test your home for invisible indoor air pollutants that can cause serious health problems. We are proud to provide our indoor air quality testing services to Washington and Idaho homeowners in Pasco, Richland, Liberty Lake, Walla Walla, and areas nearby.

The air quality of your home is vulnerable to a variety of common air pollutants, some being much more harmful to your health than others. Radon, for example, is a dangerous indoor air pollutant that originates in soil and rock, typically entering the home through the building’s foundation. There are many other invisible indoor air pollutants that can cause serious health problems as well. That’s why many homeowners decide to test their indoor air quality using the innovative AirAdvice for Homes™ system, now available from Specialty Environmental.

Common indoor air pollutants that can cause problems in your home

Indoor air testing is the first step in avoiding “sick building syndrome.” The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, along with health professionals, uses the term “sick building syndrome” to describe a wide range of physical ailments that arise because of indoor air pollution. Fatigue, dry eyes, and frequent headaches are common health problems attributable to indoor air pollution.

Carbon monoxide (CO)

A poisonous gas released by any combustion appliance (including wood- and gas-burning fireplaces). CO is invisible and odorless, making it extremely dangerous.

Dust mite debris

Feces and detritus from dust mites can cause respiratory ailments.

Animal Dander

Tiny particles of hair, feathers, and skin.


Microscopic airborne spores from mold and mildew colonies. Mold smells bad and can cause a wide range of allergic reactions and respiratory ailments.

Volatile organic compounds (VOCs)

Formaldehyde, acetone, benzene, methylene chloride, and other compounds used in a wide range of products (cleaners, carpeting, finishes, furniture, etc.). All are irritants; some are carcinogenic.

Exposure to indoor air pollution is more serious today than in the past, thanks to tighter house construction and to the wide variety of chemicals found in everyday products like cleaners, aerosol cans, building materials, fabrics, cigarettes, adhesives and printers. Adding to this hazardous mix are organic irritants like pet dander, dust and debris from dust mites. Carbon monoxide is a lethal gas that can accumulate indoors when combustion appliances (which burn gas, oil, kerosene or wood) are not properly vented.

How the AirAdvice for Homes™ system works

Fortunately, Specialty Environmental can test the indoor air quality of your home quickly and accurately using the innovative AirAdvice for Homes™ system. The results from your AirAdvice test will specifically identify all the main components of indoor air pollution including carbon dioxide (CO2), carbon monoxide (CO), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and particulates (dust and dander). Our AirAdvice for Homes testing also tracks indoor temperature and humidity levels.

The AirAdvice monitor measures indoor pollutants to give you an understanding of your home’s air quality problems and potential solutions.

Here’s how the test works:

Step 1

Our technician places one or more AirAdvice monitors in your home.

Step 2

Highly calibrated circuitry in the monitor will measure different indoor air quality elements on a continuous basis. The monitor should collect air quality data for at least a 48-hour period.

Step 3

The monitor automatically sends air quality data back to a central computer and data processing center via a standard phone line. A cellular adaptor can be used if a land line isn’t available.

Step 4

The homeowner receives a complete indoor air quality report, identifying specific concerns and recommending methods for improving indoor air quality.
