When walking from room to room in your house or stepping over the door threshold into your office space, taking in a big breath you may not find anything very alarming except the possible smell of dirty shoes or the hygiene of your co-worker two cubicles over. But you may be startled to find a variety of sinister contaminates that can accumulate in the air without your acknowledgement.
Considering on average we spend 90% of our time indoors these silent contaminates, if left neglected, can accumulate and cause major repertory problems and infections without ever being accounted for in their diagnosis. Children, Elderly, people with heart disease and other illnesses suffer most from air quality issues. Moving forward it is good to know what to look for to make the best of the air quality you expose yourself to. It is always important to get your ducts and ventilation system routinely maintained to clean allergens, mold, and bacteria off duct walls, condensers and other parts that have direct exposure to your ventilation.
It is also very important to get a proper mix between indoor and outdoor air circulating throughout your indoor atmosphere to combat an over accumulation and stagnation of chemicals and allergens that can reach toxic levels within your sanctuary. Another major problem when it comes to safely controlling air quality in your home is extreme temperature differences due to bad insulating. When the outer wall heats up in the summer sun and mixes with the cool air in your home it creates condensation between your walls, which can cause mold and bacteria build up which in turn leaches into the air you breath within your home. This fact is also important to consider when addressing any other problems you may have in your house whether it be some leaky plumbing, a remodel, or installation. Ask yourself how it will affect the air you breath and what can you do to insure the cleanest air possible?
