How Can I Improve My IAQ?

Our professionals will conduct indoor air quality tests in your home to determine the IAQ in your home as well as what pollutants are present. We will then provide guidance on what steps you can take to meet EPA IAQ standards. This could include replacing air filters, managing humidity levels, installing air purifiers or cleaners, or even adding more plants to your home. After these air quality improvement tasks are done, your service provider will revisit your home to assess the impact on your indoor air quality.

What is Indoor Air Pollution?

Indoor air pollution concerns the presence of harmful contaminants and pollutants within enclosed spaces, such as homes, offices, or buildings that can have adverse effects on your indoor air quality. The EPA estimates that the average American spends 90 percent of their time indoors, meaning that the amount of indoor air pollution present in your home or business is highly important. 

Indoor air pollution can be caused by a wide range of substances, such as smoke, dust, allergens, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), mold spores, pet dander, and even toxic gases like carbon monoxide. Prolonged exposure to indoor air pollutants can lead to a range of health issues, including allergies, respiratory problems, and more severe conditions like asthma and even lung cancer. Because of this, it is crucial to mitigate indoor air pollution through air purification measures like proper ventilation, air filtration, and pollutant control to maintain a healthy and safe indoor environment.

Causes of Indoor Air Pollution

  • Tobacco Smoke: Smoking indoors releases harmful chemicals and particulate matter into the air.
  • Cooking Emissions: Cooking with gas or oil can produce indoor air pollutants like carbon monoxide and fine particulate matter.
  • Household Cleaning Products: Many cleaning products contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that can contribute to indoor air pollution.
  • Inadequate Ventilation: Poor ventilation allows indoor pollutants to accumulate, especially in tightly sealed buildings.
  • Mold and Mildew: Damp environments can lead to mold growth, releasing spores and mycotoxins into the air.
  • Radon Gas: Radon, a naturally occurring radioactive gas, can seep into homes from the ground and accumulate indoors.
  • Pesticides: The use of pesticides and insecticides indoors can introduce harmful chemicals into the air.
  • Furniture and Building Materials: Some materials, like certain types of paint, carpeting, and furniture, can emit VOCs.
  • Pet Dander: Shed skin cells, fur, and feathers from pets can trigger allergies and asthma when they become airborne.
  • Household Products: Various household products, such as air fresheners and candles, can release volatile chemicals into the air.
