The air in your home can have an incredible impact on the overall wellbeing and health of everyone in your home including yourself.
Home air quality problems or indoor mould growth issues can have long lasting effects on your health. Most residential clients contact us for allergic reactions, odour complaints, sinus infections, respiratory issues, or previous mould issues in the home and/or water damage. A large number of clients also just want to know if the air they are breathing is safe. Home air quality can be impacted by heating/cooling design, previous water damage, building design, or previous mold growth issues. Most if not all issues can be easily addressed or solved once it is determined what the home air quality or mould growth issues are.
Residential air quality is an key part of our overall health and wellness because we spend so much of our time indoors. Your home's air quality can often be 2-5 times more polluted than outdoor air and that increased exposure to pollutants and contaminants can have big short and long term effects on your health and wellness. Some of the common home air quality pollutants are:
Poor home air quality can often be dramatically improved by making changes to your ventilation system. Whether that may be increasing air flow, cleaning ducts, or replacing filters, a tightly sealed building can prevent contaminants from being flushed, and instead continually recirculate irritants and pollution.
There are any number of chemicals present in your home air quality at any time, from products you bring in to the base materials that make your home and furniture. Finishes, glues, and paints used in interior environment are some of the most common types of residential air quality irritants, but cleaning supplies, solvents, and perfumes are also problematic for many people.
Humidity and moisture in your home can cause indoor mold growth, damage to your building's structure, and can exacerbate chronic illness, like bronchitis and asthma. The negative health effects of mold growth are well documented, and any leaks or excess moisture should be cleaned up as soon as possible.
The good news is that solutions are available for these problems - the first step is having a home air quality testing done to assess what problems your house may have. At SafeAir, we can help you determine what sort of home air quality needs you may have, and help determine a path to a healthier, safer indoor environment.
