As buildings are constructed to meet tighter standards for energy efficiency, fresh air is increasingly being locked out of indoor spaces. With less outside air making its way in to help ventilate homes and businesses, indoor air pollution has increased significantly and is now a leading health concern. Particulates from everyday products and activities such as dust, pollen, pet dander, mold, skin flakes, chemical fumes, cigarette smoke, and Radon gas can build up over time and contribute to a number of respiratory ailments. Our technicians are specially trained to tackle indoor air quality problems and solutions. We can help you to sort through the issues, so you understand how to take reasonable steps to protect your health.
Dusty, dirty homes can cause feelings of discomfort for everyone, but even more so for allergy sufferers, and the air in today’s tightly-sealed, well-insulated and energy-efficient homes can become stale as the same indoor air is re-circulated. Dirty air isn’t just about car exhaust and factory smokestacks. Indoors, air pollutants come from wood-burning fireplaces, cooking fumes, air fresheners, hygiene/cleaning products, hair styling sprays, and numerous other sources. Some of these household products may smell good, but they can still contain respiratory irritants. In the short term, those exposed may experience breathing problems, headaches, and other symptoms. Over time, breathing in excessive pollutants could lead to permanent, serious health problems, including cancer.
It’s smart to take steps to increase ventilation and reduce accumulated particulates in your home. We will be happy to discuss your concerns and your goals. We’ll go over any existing problems that you’ve noticed, such as an on-going moisture problem or recurring allergy symptoms. We’ll check out the ductwork to look for buildup of mold or dust and evidence of pest infestation. After we’ve carefully analyzed the situation, we’ll present our recommendations for products and services to address your needs. Options include:
Humidity is a funny thing. In the winter, dry air can cause static electricity, itchy skin, damage to home furnishings, and more. Additionally, increasing humidity in the winter is a good thing because it makes the air feel warmer and more comfortable while minimizing damage to furnishings.
