Improve Your Indoor Air Quality for a Healthier Environment
Many of us don’t realize it, but the air inside your home can be four to five times more polluted than the air outside, according to the E.P.A. Indoor air pollutants such as mold spores, bacteria, viruses, allergens, dust and dirt are all contaminants that can be found in your air and can cause respiratory diseases and infections, especially in children and the elderly.
Dirt and debris build up in your ducts and capture pollens and allergens. When those bacteria sit, they start to multiply and you may have millions of virus and bacteria particles inside your ductwork that are contaminating your air simply because your ducts aren’t clean. Ducts should be cleaned every 2-3 years to ensure clean indoor air.
A safe and effective way to help eliminate Indoor Air Quality risks for your home or business is an Air Scrubber. These risks (also known as Sick Building Syndrome) reduce odors from pets and cooking, common air pollutants, chemical odors (VOCs), bacteria, viruses, smoke, and mold. Our experts can install either a portable or duct mounted air scrubber. Contact us today to find out which would be best for your home or business.
Removing indoor airborne pollutants can improve the well-being of your family. There are many different types of filters and each one performs differently. Based on your lifestyle, type of home and family needs, we can recommend the filter that best fits your needs, such as disposable filters, media filters, HEPA filters or more.
Many homes require the addition of moisture to maintain a comfortable environment. Low humidification levels can result in dry skin and hair, as well as cracked hardwood floors and furniture. Homes in our area can be very dry during the winter, which is why we offer whole house humidifiers to add just the right amount of moisture for your comfort.
Proper dehumidification can allow you to turn a damp basement into a family room, game room or home theatre. We offer systems that will reduce your moisture level and increase your comfort. They also can help to minimize the possibility of mold and mildew growth.
