Pesticides are commonly found indoors and are often used for insect and termite control.
Moving into a new home or office may expose the occupants to prior contamination as no records are provided by the seller, bank, real estate agent or attorney regarding prior use of chemicals or pesticides.
Pesticides released into a building can contaminate the HVAC system causing circulation throughout the building including clothing, furniture, and floor coverings.
Even in low amounts pesticides have been reported as a leading cause of sinusitis, bronchitis, migraines, immune system dysfunction, general malaise, gastrointestinal upset and even memory dysfunction. Frequently new homeowners can move into a home and live for several years before they become aware that pesticides may be the cause of these health problems. All homes should be tested prior to occupancy.
