Importance of Indoor Air Quality
We want your home to be safe of hazardous pollutants. These pollutants can enter your home from lifestyle choices, mold, radon, or poor home ventilation. If you see condensation on your windows or walls, moldy items in your home or older heating and cooling systems, your home could have poor ventilation. Poor Ventilation can put you at risk of developing health issues due to the pollutants in your home’s air. Most air pollutants aren’t easily seen but they can still cause harm to your family. These pollutants can cause symptoms including:
- Allergy-like symptoms
- Flu-like symptoms
- Irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat
According to epa.gov, (US Environmental Protection Agency,) your home could be exposing you to radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that can cause lung cancer. You can’t see or smell radon. Testing is the only way to know your level of exposure. Your home could also be exposing you to other allergens and mold.
Anyone can react to these pollutants but the elderly, immunocompromised, and those with pre-existing medical conditions are more likely to have reactions to the pollutants. If you or anyone in your family are having any of the symptoms listed above and feel they could be linked to radon, other home allergens or mold, give us a call and we will come to your home and test your indoor air quality. If we find any issue of concern, we will provide you with options on how to improve your indoor air quality.
