Indoor Air Quality Services in the Suwanee Area

Our homes and businesses do not always have the best airflow and ventilation, which leads to air getting trapped inside. When contaminants from outside enter through cracks and are unable to exit, or indoor pollutants don’t have a chance to exchange with fresh outside air, indoor air pollution is the result. The air trapped inside contains contaminants such as dust, smoke, and other allergens. Poor ventilation is not the only reason indoor air quality (IAQ) can become unhealthy. Indoor air pollution is introduced through contaminants we bring in (such as cleaning chemicals), high humidity levels, and interior temperature, making your home or business uncomfortable.

Because we spend most of our time indoors, awareness of indoor air pollution is essential to keeping your family and employees safe and comfortable. Aire Serv of Suwanee provides home air quality testing and other IAQ services across the area, including Suwanee, Duluth, Peachtree Corners, and Norcross.

Why Indoor Air Quality Matters

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.

Solutions for Better Indoor Air Quality

Aire Serv of Suwanee recommends hiring a professional to look at your indoor air quality and provide solutions. We work with you to make scheduling easy as we are available anytime in the event of an emergency. In the meantime, you can take steps yourself to get fresher air:

  • Open windows when the outside air is fresh
  • Close windows during heavy pollen seasons
  • Vacuum and dust frequently
  • Smoke outdoors
  • Use an air purifier
  • Change out air filters regularly
  • Schedule regular HVAC maintenance
  • Keep houseplants
  • Use a dehumidifier

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.
