American Lung Association offers free home assesments to test indoor air quality

The team at the American Lung Association’s Master Home Environmentalist© program is offering home assessments for locals who have questions or concerns about their indoor air quality. Questions or concerns can be related to pesticides, allergens, molds, tobacco smoke, lead, home chemicals or anything else related to indoor air quality.

The program has evolved over the past 13 years and its mission is to promote lung health by reducing pollutants in the home through volunteer-based education and action.

The Master Home Environmentalist© program currently has more than 50 active volunteers who conduct home assessments and other outreach activities. The volunteers are involved in every aspect of the program from design and delivery to evaluation.

The program’s trainers are also exceptional in their knowledge, enthusiasm, and commitment to our mission. The majority of the trainers have a science or health related background and work for agencies, such as, the EPA, Seattle & King County Public Health, University of Washington, Washington Toxics Coalition, Solid Ground and other community groups and businesses.

“We’re doing all we can to reach out to those who are interested and/or in need,” says program coordinator Anna Quash.
