Allergen Testing Miami Dade & Broward County


Today, allergen sensitivities have caused health problems for millions of people worldwide. In the United States alone, over 50 million people suffer from allergic symptoms as a result of exposure to indoor environments, contaminants, and toxins. Many of these are caused by things that are virtually undetectable such as dust mites, pet dander, insects, rodent droppings, and mold spores.

What Causes an Allergy?

Any allergy is a hypersensitivity of the immune system. Allergies can be triggered when the immune system reacts to an allergen in the environment. These allergens may be normally harmless to some people, but for individuals who are allergic to things in the environment, reactions result in inflammatory responses that can range from mild to extremely dangerous.
Allergens are no laughing matter for the millions who suffer on a daily basis. Indoor allergens can exacerbate severe allergic reactions, asthmatic attacks, and chronic illnesses in sensitive individuals.

Allergens Can Be Anywhere

Many items inside your home can trigger allergic symptoms. Household cleaners, new furniture or carpeting, paints, pesticides, or even construction materials can give off gases into our indoor environment. Virtually invisible, dust mites can be found throughout a household on pillows, upholstery, and even bedding. Cockroaches and rodents deposit droppings in unobtrusive areas, triggering allergies in many individuals. The six most commonly tested for allergens are:

  • Dust mites
  • Cockroaches
  • Cats
  • Dogs
  • Rate
  • Mice

If You Suffer From Allergies, Call a Professional Inspector

If you or a member of your family suffers from allergies, you owe it to yourself to test your indoor air quality. When it comes to allergen inspections, the indoor environment professionals at Florida Inspections Unlimited offer the vacuum sampling method for screening and diagnosing for environmental particulates and allergens in your indoor air in your household.

Mold Allergies

Mold and mildew are often culprits when it comes to allergic symptoms inside a home or building. As mold digests organic matter, it produces spores that become airborne to find new areas to colonize. With our airtight homes and buildings, condensation and moisture isn’t dissipated and remain a haven for mold and mildew. Our air conditioning system may then spread it throughout the interior of the home. Changing interior air filters is often helpful when trying to keep mold and mildew growth at bay.

Other Allergies

We will inspect areas of your home for possible causes of indoor allergens. Our inspectors will take samples of air, wall, and ceiling surfaces to test for mold growth. When it comes to other allergens, these can be found anywhere from bedding and mattresses to air that is being circulated throughout your home through your HVAC system. There are multiple tests available for indoor allergens:

  • The Allergen Test screens for cat, dog, dust mite, and cockroach allergens. The vacuum sampling method includes bulk, dust, or polycarbonate air filter cassette.
  • Provides a sensitive method for detection of allergens in dust samples.
  • The Airborne Mold Testing screens for contamination due to mold spores generated by reservoirs of mold growth.
  • Airborne Biological Particles and Allergens analysis indicates when certain allergens are present such as dust, synthetic fibers, fiberglass fibers, insect parts, dust mites and others which are airborne inside the home. Airborne skin cell counts are often good indicators of the overall particulate indoor air quality of the environment.

Consultation and Remediation

When elevated allergen levels are detected by any laboratory tests, we provide detailed information and offer recommendations on how to properly and safely rid your indoor environment of these agents. Our inspectors have experience with all forms of allergen testing and use only state-of-the-art equipment and technology. We only partner with the most skilled laboratories in order to locate and document the source of your problem. Armed with the final documentation, you then may wish to speak with a certified Remediator and your doctor.
