Love and Pollutants are in the Air: Improve Indoor Air Quality

Don’t pollute all the love in the air with poor indoor air quality. Breathe easier knowing that there are things you can do right now to improve your indoor air quality.

Do you find you and your family are getting sick more often than your neighbors, or when you are sick, take a lot longer to recover? You may think this is some sort of genetic defect, but in reality, it is probably because you have some serious Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) issues.

As it is difficult to “see” poor indoor air quality, we don’t often think about it. Just because we can’t see the harmful contaminants in the air, however, doesn’t mean they aren’t there. If you suffer from asthma, frequent headaches or nasal congestion, just to name a few consequences, odds are you have poor indoor air quality.

Examples of Indoor Air Pollutants:

According to the Center for Disease Control, here are some common indoor air pollutants:

  • Molds
  • Pollen
  • Dander from pet fur
  • Secondhand smoke
  • Formaldehyde
  • Fumes emitted by imported drywall
  • Carbon monoxide that comes from burning propane, other gases and fuels, and charcoal
  • Household products such as cleaners and pesticides

How to Improve Indoor Air Quality:

Also from the Center for Disease Control, here are some things YOU can do to improve the air you breath:

  • Open windows or run air conditioning or ventilation systems to bring in fresh air.
  • Clean to get rid of dust and pet fur.
  • Fix water leaks to help keep mold away.
  • Use bug spray only when absolutely necessary.
  • Do not smoke inside.
  • If you see or smell mold, clean it up with detergent and water or a mix of no more than 1 cup of bleach mixed with 1 gallon of water. Never mix bleach with ammonia.
  • If you smell gas, do not light any flames or sparks and leave the building right away.

Duct Cleaning:

Ducts

For professional indoor air quality improvements, consider having your air ducts cleaned.

The air ducts in your home circulate air into and out of the home. As air passes through this system, it gathers and distributes large amounts of dust, dirt, pollen, mold, bacteria, viruses, and other indoor air pollutants.

Ultraviolet Light Air Purification:

UV germicidal lights are an extra line of defense against indoor air contaminants.

Ultraviolet Light Air Purification

  • Reduces energy consumption and costs.
  • Improves equipment operation with minimal maintenance.
  • Delivers cleaner, fresher air.
  • Eliminates foul odors caused by microbial growth on wet air conditioner coils.
  • Nontoxic and safe – no ozone.
  • Reduces equipment maintenance; no chemicals for coil cleaning.

Over the years, this debris can build up and will negatively impact your home’s indoor air quality every time you use your furnace or air conditioner. This is the time to call Cassel Home Comfort at (217) 866-1596 or make an appointment.
