You are what you breathe

While it's easy to see when you need to dust, it is harder to know when the air in your home needs cleaning. Just like the air itself, its pollutants are invisible. But their consequences are not!

The United States Environmental Protection Agency lists indoor air in the top five risks to our health. Viruses, pollen, dust mites, dangerous bacteria, mold, fungi, and chemicals can all be present in the air.

Indoor air quality is a growing concern

Over the last several years, research has indicated that the air within homes and other buildings can be as much as five times more polluted than outdoor air! Indoor air can have more than 30 million air pollutants, including dust, mold spores, and allergens, per 1 cubic foot of air. Other research indicates that people spend as much as 90% of their time indoors. So, wouldn't you want the air you're breathing to be as fresh as possible?

Poor indoor air quality causes a handful of problems:

  • Health problems: Air pollutants that lead to minor sinus irritation up to severe health complications
  • High energy bills: Expensive utility costs due to energy issues in houses
  • Damage: Damage to your furniture, home, and belongings including wood cracks, mold, and mildew
  • Discomfort: Itchy and dry skin, annoying static shocks, and other uncomfortable situations

Mold Treatment in Greater Rochester

Moisture is a major enemy: Leaks that allow water to get where it doesn't belong often create indoor air pollution in the form of mold spores. Mold will thrive where moisture and organic materials are present - this includes wood, paper, fabric, and leather. Foundation waterproofing, leak repair, and dehumidification are effective in mold prevention strategies.

What causes indoor air problems?

Indoor pollution sources that release gases or particles into the air are the primary cause of indoor air quality problems in homes. Inadequate ventilation can increase indoor pollutant levels by not bringing in enough outdoor air to dilute emissions from indoor sources and by not carrying indoor air pollutants out of the home. High temperature and humidity levels can also increase concentrations of some pollutants.

Common sources of indoor air pollutants:

  • Pet dander
  • Dust and dust mites
  • Outdoor sources such as radon and pesticides
  • Moisture and humidity
  • Central heating and cooling systems
  • Combustion sources, including oil, gas, kerosene, coal, wood, and tobacco products
  • Chemicals and household cleaning supplies
  • Gasses from furnishings, carpets, building materials, etc.
