Common Indoor Air Quality Issues
Believe it or not, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ranked indoor pollution as one of the top five environmental dangers. Because the air in your home is recycled through your vents and you likely keep your windows tightly sealed while running your heating and cooling systems, the inside of your home may be four to five times more polluted than the air outside. There are a variety of factors that can have a negative impact on your indoor air quality, including:
- Toxins, chemicals, and gasses. When these elements are released from cleaning products, home deodorizers, and paint, they may affect your home’s air quality and your health.
- Dust mites and dust build up. Whether accumulating in bedding, mattresses, upholstery, or carpet, these pesky factors can cause allergy flare ups!
- Radon. This odorless, colorless gas is difficult to detect but may build up in your home, potentially leading to serious health issues for you and your family.
- Mold, mildew, and pet dander. Many homeowners have connected this common problem to health issues, making it a leading issue in air quality today.
In order to reclaim your home from bad air, the team at Peninsula can help control problem pollutants such as oil, gas, building materials, and more. Our specialists can evaluate your indoor air quality problem and find the right equipment needed to provide a quick and easy solution.
What You Don’t See Can Hurt You
Air quality is affected by many factors. Many of these are unseen in the air you breathe and may not be noticeable until there is a problem. At least some of the following contaminants are present in every home, including yours.
Pet hair and dander
Even the cleanest pet will drop hair and dander. These mix with the air and can create serious problems for those with allergies.
Household Chemicals and Cleaners
Cleaning agents, polishes, chemicals in upholstery and fabric all release gasses and some toxins into the air you breathe.
Dust and Dust Mites
Dust accumulates even in the cleanest homes, hiding in ductwork, corners and under furniture. Where there is dust, there are dust mites. Both are proven allergens that can impact the health of those who breathe them.
Your house is not completely airtight. It’s not meant to be. Your HVAC system requires air to circulate. Air entering from outside can also bring in unwanted dust, dirt, and toxins
Mold and Mildew
These are serious and potentially dangerous contaminants. Exposure to them can result in severe respiratory and other health problems.
