Essentials of pesticide testing

Most individuals are not thinking about pesticides when they move into their new home or office building. They are also ordinarily unaware of how prior pesticide treatment records are not disclosed to the buyer at the initial purchase of the property. A new buyer essentially has no idea what kind of pesticide treatments have been conducted or if they have had any type of pesticide testing for the indoor environment.

AirMD’s pesticide testing will seek out any left behind residue of proper fumigations. When certain pesticides are released into the building, they have the ability to accumulate which can then cause the harmful chemicals to circulate throughout the building and the air in the home or office.

Low amounts of pesticides can lead to occupants suffering from sinusitis, bronchitis, general malaise, migraines, immune system dysfunctions, gastro problems, and sometimes even memory loss. Short-term exposure to pesticides can cause extreme weakness, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, seizures, loss of consciousness, and coughing or a sore throat. Long-term exposure to pesticides can cause some cancers, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and lead to a life of chronic health complications. This is why it is important to conduct routine pesticide testing within your home and office to ensure everyone remains healthy and happy.
