Mold Inspection & Indoor Air Quality Testing Atlanta GA
When inside our homes or at our place of business, we want to feel safe. Part of this sense of security is knowing that the air we breathe is clean and healthy. But in most cases, it isn’t.
Harmful pollutants lurk inside our homes and businesses without us even realizing it. While most of us are aware of outdoor air pollution, the Environmental Protection Agency has found that pollution levels are 2 to 5 times higher indoors than outside.
If you are worried about your indoor air quality, Mold-B-Gone is here to help. We offer Atlanta mold testing that helps determine how stellar your indoor air quality is, and if there is mold present in your home or business place, we deliver commercial mold remediation services that fully remove it.

The Risks of Poor Indoor Air Quality
For most of us, the majority of our lives are spent indoors. And while we think of indoor spaces as ones of protection, those ceilings and walls that keep the elements out also keep certain pollutants in, allowing them to become far more concentrated than they ever would be outdoors.
Depending on the type of pollutants you are dealing with, the risks can be quite severe. These include:
- Chronic respiratory infections
- Worsening asthma and allergies
- Sore and watery eyes
- Burning sensations in the nose and throat
- Frequent headaches
- A general sense of malaise
- Heart disease
Ultimately, your health matters, and protecting it is paramount. This means you must address indoor air quality.
How Indoor Air Quality Testing Protects You
Simply put, you cannot protect yourself against threats you do not know are there. Air quality testing determines the safety of the air inside your property. Once you either get the all-clear or find out what is present, you can act accordingly.
