Indoor Air Quality

Common air quality issues
Dust and pet dander are two of the top causes of poor indoor air quality. While dust and pet dander are easy to identify and clean, there are a number of other factors that could be affecting the air quality in your home and more importantly your health.

Here are some of the issues that could be affecting the quality of air inside your home:

  • Allergens
  • Bacteria
  • Mold
  • Household Chemicals
  • Humidity Imbalances
  • Home Odors
  • Stale Air

Signs of an indoor air problem

Odors
Knowing the signs to look out for to determine if there is something wrong is key to preventing long term issues. Below are some tell-tale signs to look for:

  • musty odors
  • condensation on windows
  • discoloration of walls or ceilings
  • loose drywall tape
  • wood warping
  • peeling or chipping of paint

Headaches and other health symptoms
How you feel is also a great indicator of whether or not your home’s air quality may have a problem. If you are able to breathe easier or your nose doesn’t feel clogged when you’re away from home, your home’s air may not be as healthy as it should be.
