Reasons to test your home:(Please view article)

  • Suspicion of toxic molds -Water Damage, leaks and Flooding
  • Musty Smells
  • Basements and underground dwellings as well as homes built on slabs( These breed moisture which aid mold growth)
  • Allergies/Asthma/ & health issues( headaches, sleeplessness, restlessness, anxiety, or other health problems)
  • Purchasing a home (Protect yourself from buying a contaminated home and save costly renovations
  • Preventative Maintenance (Monitor overall levels yearly and see if levels grow over time. This will prevent expensive remediation later.)

Additionally, we offer other testing methods

Bulk Samples with Lab Analysis

- a piece of material that the mold is growing on. Place the sample in a plastic bag and we will analyze it for mold species that may jeopardize your health and home.

Surface Sample with Laboratory analysis

This test requires the customer to sample the moldy surface with clear tape or swabs provided My Healthy Home. These materials will be packaged and sent to the laboratory. (Specific for Stachybotrys testing).

Air Testing

air quality

air qualityAir testing can be made easy with do-it-yourself kits and the help of our consultations and laboratories. Always remember, more sophisticated and accurate testing more professional equipment. Our testing is limited in scope and used as a screen test and a preventative measure. It is designed for residential testing with economical pricing.

VOC (Volatile Organic compounds)-Represent a large variety of chemicals that exist as a gas or can easily off gas under normal room temperatures. Some major sources include Photocopying materials, paints, gasoline, refrigerants, personal hygiene and cosmetics products, building materials, disinfectants and pesticides. Most VOCs are generally present in very low quantities in the indoor environment. Symptoms attributable in human response to VOC's are often similar to those from other indoor contaminants such as particulate and biocontaminants. Many people living with chemical contaminants become use to the odors and are unable to detect that they are living in a compromised environment.

Reasons to test your home:
  • Purchase of a new home/out gassing of chemicals from new construction and manufactured products
  • Recent construction or remodeling inside your home
  • Unexplainable Health Complaints: Allergies, Asthma, Headaches, eye and respiratory irritation, malaise or other health problems
  • Measures levels of VOC's from cleaning products, paints, gasoline, disinfectants and pesticides used or stored in the home.
  • Purchasing a new home and evaluating possible toxins in the home
  • General Home Maintenance and preventative measures to insure the safety of your family particularly children
The PREDICT™ VOC Screening Test Kit

The PREDICT™ VOC Screening Test Kit provides a simple, economical screening of indoor air quality by testing for total levels of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and Mold VOCs (actively growing mold behind walls or carpeting). These two index numbers are excellent indicators of the overall indoor air quality of a home.

What are VOCs?

VOCs are chemicals that are emitted as gases from solids or liquids and easily evaporated into the air at room temperature. Concentrations of these chemicals can be up to 100 times higher indoors than outdoors. Thousands of products, many that we use or are exposed to every day, emit VOCs into the air while they are being used, and even when they are stored. All VOCs have the potential to be harmful, and there are even a few common VOCs that can be particularly dangerous to our health. Symptoms such as frequent headaches, dizziness, fatigue, nausea, coughing, wheezing, and eye, nose and throat irritation can be indicators that the quality of air in your home is poor - especially if these symptoms subside once you leave the house. Other more serious health problems that can arise with poor indoor air quality are asthma exacerbation, digestive problems, and damage to the liver, kidneys and central nervous system. Some air contaminants are so harmful that they can even cause cancer.

Benefits of the PREDICT™ VOC Screening Test

Predict Test Kit

  • Quickly determine total levels of harmful indoor air pollutants, including hidden mold - the only test of its kind on the market

  • Receive information on potential sources of air contamination

  • One test covers up to a 2,000 sq. ft. area

  • Specific IAQ problems can be identified with optional 350+ VOC compound analysis, without taking another air sample (additional cost incurred)

  • Receive expert consultation for interpreting the test results or suggestions for improving indoor air quality

REVEAL™ Comprehensive VOC Test

An air sample can be collected in 3 to 4 hours and covers an area of approximately 2,000 sq. ft. The sample is then sent to our Nationally accredited Laboratory for analysis. Reports from your analysis will tell you if your total VOC levels are within a safe, acceptable, or elevated range, and what the possible sources of contamination are. If levels are determined to be elevated and there is a desire to identify exactly which VOCs are present in the air, an additional analysis can be performed at the lab, for an additional fee. There is no need to take another air sample.

With PREDICT, you can receive a total assessment of the air you and your loved ones breathe everyday - simply, safely, and economically.

Like the PREDICT VOC Screening Test, the REVEAL™ Comprehensive VOC Test gives an excellent assessment of overall indoor air quality. However, the REVEAL test goes even further by providing detailed answers to questions of "What's in my air?" The REVEAL test surveys over 350 Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in the air with a single sample (covering approximately 2,000 sq. ft.). With its extreme sensitivity in the parts per trillion range, the REVEAL test is particularly useful when investigating odor concerns.

Some air contaminants are so harmful that they can even cause cancer.

The REVEAL Test & Analysis

An air sample can be collected in 3 to 4 hours, then sent to Prism Analytical Technologies - the air testing laboratory that developed PREDICT and REVEAL - for a comprehensive analysis. In a few days, you can know exactly what is in the air you and your loved ones are breathing. This extremely sensitive and detailed analysis will help identify the sources of contaminants, odors, and air pollutants, and can even identify problems before they become disruptive.

MY HEALTHY HOME NOTE:

Identification of unknown odors is a difficult task. There are roughly 200 top VOC's that may or may not be the cause of your problem. This type of testing should help determine most of the potentially troublesome gases. We recommend you consult your physician or Environmental physician for correlations between chemicals in the sample and your health concerns.

Water Testing

Call toll free 866-743-8563 to schedule a water test.

volatile organic compound

Our goal, at My Healthy Home®, is to educate consumers about the current conditions of our drinking water and promote a healthy home environment.

Here are reasons to test your water now!
  • Water is often referred to as a universal solvent because of its ability to dissolve almost anything it may contact. This superior solvent action of water allows it to be easily contaminated by water-soluble waste or materials. Over 700 chemicals haven been found in America's drinking water supplies, almost none can be tasted, smelled or seen. Arsenic, lead, mercury, pesticides and herbicides are among the hundreds of contaminants which have invaded our water. Many of these dangerous and toxic items can only be uncovered by performing a comprehensive and sophisticated series of analyses.
  • Experts for the Center for Disease Control estimate that one million people get sick each year from contaminated water and nearly one thousand of these people die.
  • Some studies have shown that you are exposed to as much water pollution during a twenty-minute hot shower as by drinking two quarts of tap water per day.
  • Chlorine, for example, in the digestive track can upset the balance of intestinal flora and promote infections. Chlorine related toxins may be proven in the future to be the one of the most important environmental carcinogens in terms of cancer per year.

Remember, keeping you and your family healthy and safe is the goal. Review the steps below to better understand how to test effectively:

  1. Know the water supply is safe for you and your family to drink. Have it analyzed by an independent certified testing laboratory and compare the results to the limits established by the Safe Drinking Water Act. Self -testing kits are also available that can flag some of the more common problems.
  2. If the analysis shows a problem, seek the help of a reputable water treatment specialist.
  3. Follow advice and order treatment equipment according to manufacturers suggested maintenance schedule and instructions.
  4. Have the drinking water retested after installation to be sure the equipment is performing as advertised.Have a comprehensive water analysis performed on your water. Testing is recommended annually to maintain a record of the quality of water and to make sure no significant changes are occurring.
