Because you deserve to breathe free and clear in your own home.
Have you ever thought about the quality of the air you’re breathing at home? The thing is, most people don’t unless there’s something obviously wrong. No one wants to breathe poor-quality air day-in, day-out, and in many cases, doing so can prove to be more than a simple nuisance. The air inside your home doesn’t have to be poor quality, and understanding what can affect indoor air quality (IAQ) is the first step toward remedying whatever issues may exist.
Factors Affecting Indoor Air Quality
Determining the exact cause of indoor air quality issues can certainly be a challenge, but there are plenty of factors that tend to contribute to the problem. These include:
- Dirty ductwork — Your heating system utilizes ductwork to push warm air throughout the house. Ductwork can easily become clogged with dirt, dust, mold and bacteria, which can then spread throughout the rest of your home. As you might expect, this can quickly lead to poor indoor air quality.
- Mold — Mold is more common in California homes than many people realize. When left unaddressed, mold can easily grow to the point of being a health risk and eventually end up in your home’s ventilation system. Because mold can be dangerous, it must be dealt with by a team of trained professionals.
- Household chemicals — Household chemicals may be a necessity for cleaning purposes, but they’re often toxic and can cause a number of different symptoms.
- VOCs — Most people don’t look down at their carpets or at the paint on their walls and think “danger,” but volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that are sometimes in common household items can be hazardous to the health of you and your family.
