Most of us spend much of our time indoors. The air that we breathe in our homes can put us at risk for health problems.Health effects from indoor air pollutants may be experienced soon after exposure or, possibly, years later.Some pollutants in the air are especially harmful for children, elderly people, and those with health problems. These pollutants can be chemicals, gases, smoke, allergen particles and living organisms like mold and pests.Indoor pollution sources that release gases or particles into the air are the primary cause of indoor air quality problems in homes.Some pollutants cause health problems such as sore eyes, burning in the nose and throat, headaches, or fatigue. Other pollutants cause or worsen allergies, respiratory illnesses (such as asthma), heart disease, cancer, and other serious long-term conditions.
Air quality affects how you breathe and how you live!Understanding and controlling some of the common pollutants found in homes may help improve your indoor air and reduce your family’s risk of health concerns related to indoor air quality (IAQ).Take steps to help improve your indoor air quality and make your home and healthier and happier place to live!
We can help you do that because we offer a variety of solutions for IAQ problems, including several brands of air purification and filtration devices designed for specific concerns such as allergies and asthma, mold, smoke, pets, baby/nursery, chemical (V.O.C.), virus/pathogen and (MCS) multiple chemical sufferers.We also offer various filters (permanent and disposable) for your HVAC system and vents.Our mold zapper, that uses a quiet convection process, draws air through its heated chamber to render airborne mold spores non-viable (unable to multiply or produce additional spores) is excellent to combat mold problems.Since mold and dust mites thrive at high humidity, we offer special dehumidifiers and humidifiers that lead to a decrease in mold growth and mite allergen production and our humidity and temperature gauge helps to monitor it.
