Indoor Air Quality Residential

The air you breathe in your home can have a profound effect on the overall enjoyment of your home as well as your overall health.

Indoor air quality problems or indoor mould growth issues can have long lasting effects on your health. Most residential clients contact us due to odour complaints, allergic reactions, respiratory issues, sinus infections or previous water damage and/or mould issues in the home. A large number of clients also just want to know if the air they are breathing is safe. Indoor air quality in the home can be affected by many factors such as building design, heating/cooling design, previous water damage or previous mould growth issues. Most if not all issues can be easily addressed or solved once it is determined what the indoor air quality or mould growth issues are.

A few things to watch out for when dealing with indoor air quality.

Common Home Pollutants

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 indoor 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:

Ventilation

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.

Chemicals

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.

Mold

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 residential air quality test performed to assess what problems your house may have. At SafeAir, we can help you determine what sort of residential air quality needs you may have, and help determine a path to a healthier, safer indoor environment.
