Both adults and children can be allergic to several different types of plants, insects, animals, and other allergy-causing materials. Many allergic agents cannot be easily avoided.
However, just imagine if you are allergic to things in your home or office that are simple to detect and avoidable?
Assessments of allergen exposure are made by measuring major allergens in dust samples.
StoneCrest Team has a variety of methods to sample the indoor environment for particulates, allergens, and other irritants. Combined with an inspection and personal interview, the results of the sampling can provide guidance about what you can do to reduce the harmful effects the indoor air can have on your family’s health.
The most common test is the MARIA (Multiplex Array for Indoor Allergens) a.k.a. ‘Allergen Screen’, this powerful and informative test can detect if problematic levels of four troublesome, invisible allergens are present in your home. If allergen levels are elevated, we will provide you with detailed information on how to properly clean your home and rid yourself of these elevated allergen levels.
Please keep in mind that your home or office may have elevated levels of these allergens even if you don’t see the evidence.
When it comes to your health, what you breathe matters.
