HOW'S YOUR AIR QUALITY?
Are you suffering from allergies and sinus headaches?
Is the air in your home too moist in the summer or too dry in the winter?
The air you're breathing in your home may be the culprit.
IAQ stands for 'Indoor Air Quality' and refers to all the air in your home.
It is important to address the causes of poor IAQ and if left untreated, can pose significant health risks for you and your family.
COMMON CAUSES OF AIR POLLUTION IN YOUR HOME
Molds, Bacteria & Viruses
The quality of air in your home can be affected by microbial contaminants, such as mold spores, bacteria, and airborne viruses.
Chemical Cleaners and VOC Fumes
Fumes from household cleaners and VOC's released from furnishings and building materials.
VOC's are organic chemical compounds that evaporate under normal indoor atmospheric conditions of temperature and pressure.
Dust Mites and Pet Dander
The dust in your home can contain pet dander, mold or pollen spores, dust mite droppings which can adversely affect breathing when inhaled and cause allergic reactions in the skin upon contact.
Radon Gas and Dirty Filters and Ducts
Gases like Radon can seep from the foundation of your home into the air you breathe. Dirty filters and air ducts also degrade the quality of the indoor air your breathe.
