Indoor Air Quality Check: How Contaminants and Pollutants Could Be Making You Sick

An indoor air quality check can drastically improve health.

Effects of poor indoor air quality

A quick indoor air quality check could lead to immediately improved health for your entire family. If anyone in your family frequently suffers with a dry throat, sinus congestion, allergies, asthma attacks, frequent illness, headaches, dry eyes, or nosebleeds, the culprit could be the air in your home.

Consider getting an indoor air quality check performed to ensure that the following elements of your home's atmosphere are optimized:

Humidity.

High humidity in the home can encourage the growth of mold and mildew, and invite pests like mice or cockroaches to take up residence. Low humidity can cause the virus population inside your home to explode, causing more illness for your family. The optimum indoor humidity level is around 45%; do you know your home's humidity level?

Filtration.

A good air filtration system will reduce the pollen, dust, and other particles that are floating around your home, likely causing allergies and asthma to flare up.

Chemical pollutant sensors.

In addition to smoke detectors, every home should have a carbon monoxide detector installed and working properly. It is also a good idea to have your home tested for radon, and, depending on the age of your home, asbestos.

At Comfort Services, we would be proud to send one of our licensed and highly qualified technicians to run an indoor air quality check for your home. Your technician can then recommend the best steps to take to improve your home's air quality.
