AIRMD Advises Homeowners and Businesses to Test For Indoor Air Quality to Create Better Health

BOCA RATON, Fla., March 9 /PRNewswire/ -- In a recent report, the Florida Department of Health has received many complaints from homeowners throughout the state of Florida stating the drywall in their homes is causing serious health problems and damages. The cause of the problem has been linked to imported Chinese drywall used in the construction of the homes. Residents of the homes, constructed by well-known builders Lennar, Centerline and Taylor Morrison have complained about serious respiratory ailments. The issues were uncovered as a result of mysterious foul odors and corroded wiring, mechanical appliances and fixtures. Although the builders are taking action to resolve these issues, homeowners are encouraged to conduct a thorough independent air quality inspection. Please visit www.airmd.com/news to read important information regarding these issues.

AIRMD, a progressive, science-based company, designed to meet the indoor air quality needs of residences and businesses, is ready to help. AIRMD sets a new standard for indoor health and wellness as part of the worldwide movement to promote natural and sustainable living. With the EPA reporting elevated levels of indoor air pollution, it has become the number one environmental health concern in the United States. Currently there are no local, state or federal regulations or standards established and, unfortunately, the public remains largely unaware.

The Department of Health Indoor Toxics Program, a governmental agency conceived in 1994, was designed to provide advice and expertise to Floridians with indoor air problems in residences, but with limited staffing, this program cannot possibly reach all citizens it was intended to protect.

AIRMD was created to provide affordable indoor environmental testing while educating the public on healthier living practices. The company employs scientists with backgrounds in microbiology, toxicology and environmental science, who are equipped with specific scientific equipment to conduct the most accurate analyses for homeowners and businesses. The scientific field team, led by Simon Hahessy, BS, ASM, Toxicologist and Certified Indoor Environmental Consultant (CIEC), conducts a thorough inspection which tests for mold, bacteria, chemicals, allergens, pathogens, water quality and electromagnetic radiation. People who suffer from asthma and respiratory ailments, headaches, fatigue, dizziness and sleep disruption are often unaware they're being regularly exposed to an unhealthy level of indoor pollutants and contaminants in their own home or workplace. Test samples are sent to independent laboratories for analysis. Reported findings are issued within a few days accompanied with AIRMD's recommendations to correct and improve the quality of tested areas. Some pollutants can be easily removed, while others may require significant action.

In addition to becoming the industry leader in indoor environmental health, AIRMD will soon introduce a line of 100% all-natural and eco-friendly cleaning solutions that are effective and 100% guaranteed. AIRMD's products clean a variety of surfaces and kill germs, further promoting health and wellness. AIRMD's products will replace harmful chemical-based products and green products that can have hidden chemical components.

AIRMD is committed to education and public awareness. As a result they maintain a rigorous schedule of speaking engagements and public health forums. AIRMD also participates in green initiatives with organizations and groups including Boca Community Hospital, The American Lung Association, American Cancer Society, as well as non-profit endeavors including Deliver the Dream and the Gilda's Club.
