How Air Quality Affects Your Home
Today’s homeowners should be paying as much attention to the air they breathe inside their home as they do to the air outside their home. The EPA states that indoor air is 3-5 times more polluted than outdoor air!
Indoor pets, smoking, cooking grease, dust mites, harmful pollutants, formaldehyde, building materials, cleaning products, radon, and the presence of molds and humidity affect the quality of the air inside your home. The presence of these substances coupled with the increase in energy efficient and tighter building/remodeling practices lead to a toxic indoor environment that could be making your family sick.
Poor air quality often results in allergies and asthma as well as other serious health conditions as respiratory illnesses, tuberculosis and some types of cancer.
