Indoor air pollution can be just as big a problem as outdoor air pollution, leading to increased allergy symptoms, asthma and other respiratory issues. In fact, the air in your home can harbor up to ten times higher levels of many volatile organic compounds (VOCs) than outside air.

Whether you’re a current homeowner or a potential home buyer, indoor air quality testing is a vital part of keeping your family safe and healthy.
How Do VOCs Enter Your Home?
