When we think of air pollution, we typically think of a busy street with smog or haze hanging in the air. However, indoor air quality is just as harmful if you do not take care of it regularly. If you lack healthy indoor air quality, you could be posing harmful health effects on your body, and you could potentially experience serious respiratory problems later in life. We understand maintenance might be time consuming, which is why we offer services such as air filter replacement and regular duct cleaning to ensure your indoor air quality is healthy.
Mold – Living in Florida means you will experience humidity and moisture in and around your house. As a result, mold will start to grow and quickly pollute your indoor air quality. In order to prevent this from happening, it is imperative to reduce moisture problems inside the house.
Particles – The particles emitted from household cleaning products, furnishings, and other building materials are another source of indoor air pollution. Airborne particulates may also result from dirt and dust that is collected from walking in and out of the house. These particles are known to cause respiratory problems and trigger allergies.
Poor Ventilation – We spend most of our time in buildings that are tightly sealed in order to limit outdoor air from entering resulting in poor ventilation. Most ventilation systems are designed to limit outdoor air and recirculate indoor air that has already been heated or cooled. Although this strategy might be cost effective, it could negatively impact indoor air quality.
Chemicals – The primary sources of indoor exposure to airborne chemicals are household products, furnishings, and building materials. Chemicals tend to be the most harmful pollutant because they contribute to a wide range of health effects.
