What is a person such as this one called?


We have been in our house since the first week of December. My fiance has prety bad allergies and so do I. Her allergies have been acting up lately and while I'm fine at work all day I tend to get a stuffy nose when we get home at night.

The previous owner had a cat and we did remove every square inch of carpet in the house but I can't help but think it's still lingering....

I'm looking for the name of the person you call that can come to your house and test the ..... umm ... "air"? Or the surroundings and tell if that's where my allergies come from.

Why did this get moved? I'm concerned about the air in my House, thus the general house discussion forum. I wouldn't really say this is off topic!

You want someone to come in & test the "air"

Do you have forced hot air heat, maybe you need the ducts cleaned? A majority of duct cleaning companies in my area will test the air quality of your home.

You could always go online and get a self test. Here's one link (never used them). https://www.indoorairtest.com/

Do a google search for Environmental Air Quality Testing. You'll probably find a testing lab someplace near you. Be prepared to pay dearly.

I'd pay a cleaning service to come and wash floors and walls before I bothered getting the air checked.

It's also time to start the allergy medicine. Sorry, but that cat dander is going to linger for a LONG time. No matter what you do.

Personally, I wouldn't buy a house that had been the home of a cat. But, I guess that isn't very helpful to you at this point.

I'll look into those thanks.

This house was too good to pass up - the cat became a distant worry haha.

I'm fairly certain these ducts haven't been cleaned ... umm ... ever.
