indoor air quality solutions and testing
Poor indoor air quality can lead to allergies, asthma, fatigue, dizziness, headaches, dry eyes and unsafe living conditions for you and your family.
Results can also be structural ruin and building disasters, such as peeling paint, growing mold, condensation along windows, and backdrafting appliances.
Did you know that, as per the United States Environmental Protection Agency, the indoor air is typically 2-10 times more polluted than outside air. You might be surprised to know what you are breathing into your lungs everyday. Contaminants can range from simple allergens, such as mold and dust, to dangerous and volatile organic compounds that include acetone, benzene, and methylene chloride. The most common indoor air problem is particle allergens; examples are dust, dander, pollen, spores, and bacteria. These allergens are potentially present in 91 percent of all homes.
