Indoor Air Quality services are a simple solution to decrease indoor air pollution inside your property. Having the freshest possible air helps reduce poor health conditions and makes the places you spend time more pleasant. Increasing indoor air quality can reduce odors and lessen persisting hot or humid environments.
Furthermore, running your HVAC systems to heat or cool your property can circulate pollutants. These make the HVAC system work harder to circulate air, reducing efficiency and leading to more AC and heating repairs.
Health Issues Stemming from Poor IAQ:
- Increased headaches
- Burning of the eyes and nose
- Excessive fatigue
- Aggravated allergy or asthma symptoms
- Additional respiratory issues
- Cold and flu symptoms
- More serious illness
- Headaches, dizziness, or worse, which could be caused by carbon monoxide
Common Causes of Substandard Indoor Air Quality
Indoor air pollution in your home or business can be introduced and made worse in several ways. Structurally, lack of ventilation is the number one cause of poor indoor air quality. However, your HVAC system circulates air when it heats or cools, which is why services such as duct cleaning can help remove some contaminants.
Natural causes of poor IAQ include dust, pet dander and fur, mold, pest byproducts, and more. Materials around our properties also contribute to poor indoor air quality. Chemicals such as cleaning supplies and pesticides introduce pollutants, as do the regular functions of appliances such as stoves, dryers, and water heaters. Replacing your air conditioner, heater, or water heater as they age can help mitigate these effects.

Mold and Mildew
Mold and mildew are particularly unpleasant sources of indoor air pollution. Both grow in places with high humidity, such as bathrooms. Luckily, mildew is relatively easy to scrub away, but mold needs a professional to remove it. Mold, in particular, causes respiratory issues, and you may not even realize you have a problem until you already have significant growth. Decreasing humidity, installing a sump pump to reduce the chance of flooding, and regular service of your HVAC system are great ways to decrease the chance of mold growth.
