Working on my indoor air quality with the HVAC technician

Finally, the bacterial testing was done since plumping issues often lead to such complications

I knew it was time to talk to my HVAC technician about the air quality in my house when my daughter started coughing persistently. She would experience nose blockages and struggle with breathing every once in a while. While she was asthmatic, this would rarely happen unless there was a severe trigger. The fact that it was happening frequently and persistently meant that there was something I was yet to figure out. I got into research work and found out that one of the possible causes was a compromised HVAC system. There was a possibility that my AC was blowing in poor quality air that was packed with allergens hence the reactions. Since there was no way to prove this, I knew that HVAC professional testing was necessary. I got in touch with the trusted HVAC business contact I often worked with, and his recommendation came in handy. He sent me to an HVAC contractor whose specialty was air quality testing. When he came in, the first concern was mold, but I explained that I had not seen any signs of mold infestation. He went ahead to test for mold, asbestos, and bacteria. Mold testing was significant since this commonly happens when the internal environment in the house is conducive. Asbestos testing was crucial since my home was remodeled. Fortunately, material samples proved that there was none of this. Finally, the bacterial testing was done since plumping issues often lead to such complications. It usually results from failed sewage remediation and is easily identified by bad odors, although a test is essential. It turns out that mold was my major issue. I called a mold extraction company to fix this and worked with my HVAC technician to set the correct humidity levels since this triggered the mold growth.
