Indoor Air Quality And Your Health
It’s the air you breathe.
The quality of your air can have a major impact on your health and the health of your family. In the past several years, a growing body of scientific evidence has revealed that the air within homes can be more seriously polluted than the air outdoors. According to the Indoor Air Quality Association, most people spend at least 95% of their day indoors. People exposed to poor indoor air quality for longer periods of time are often the most susceptible to the effects of indoor air pollution. Some of the most vulnerable include the elderly, small children and those who are chronically ill. View our service area to see if you are within reach of obtaining Healthy Air.
Causes of Un-Healthy Air
Inadequate ventilation, high air moisture, mold growth, man-made chemicals and more all contribute to the air quality in your home. The control of contaminants, the filtration of air, the removal of unnecessary moisture and thorough ventilation are the main methods used for improving air quality in most homes. It takes vigilance, effort and a certain amount of persistence to get the air quality in your home at an optimal level. But first, you need to find out what contaminants are in the air you breathe in your home.
IAQ can be affected by many things:
- Mold and other allergens–The growth of mold within your house, under your house and around your house can affect the indoor air quality of any house. Mold health issues have risen over the past few years with toxic strains stressing residents of all ages. Healthy Air USA can help you find, assess and remediate mold issues in a new or existing home.
- Radon — Radon is a carcinogenic radioactive gas that is produced by the breakdown of Uranium in the earth’s crust. Healthy Air USA will perform a radon test and present you with the results.
- Particulates, second-hand smoke, aerosols, and more — these irritants could be lurking in your HVAC system and you might not know it. Healthy Air USA can assess the situation and perform sanitizing operations that are needed to rid your home of these contaminants.
- Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) — VOCs are emitted by literally thousands of products. Healthy Air USA can determine the amount of VOCs in your home and help you keep them at a minimum.
Great strides have been made over the past 10 years in the diagnosis and treatment of IAQ issues. It helps to have a watchful homeowner who knows the history and the structure of their house–what lies below it, within it and over it. But sometimes you need a professional–someone with the technology, the experience and the know-how to really diagnose the problem at hand.
