In the Birmingham, AL, area, an indoor air quality test typically costs between $250-$500 for most homes. Testing a commercial property usually costs $1,000 and up, depending on the size of the space.
Some different considerations affect the price.
- Size of the home or building. A larger property will mean more areas for the inspector to check and will increase the cost.
- Type of analysis. A typical home service may sample for pollutants like mold, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), allergens and radon. However, testing for specific allergens may incur an additional cost.
