Improving Indoor Air Quality in Homes & Businesses
Improvements in construction and material technology have produced residential and commercial structures that are increasingly energy-efficient. However, the downside of a tighter building envelope is that allergens such as dust, pet dander and pollens are trapped and recirculated within the structure, leading to troublesome allergic and asthmatic reactions. No matter how many times you scrub, vacuum and clean, you could still be suffering from poor indoor air quality.
Causes of Poor Indoor Air Quality
The Environmental Protection Agency lists poor indoor air quality as one of the top five environmental risks to the public health. Severe asthma and allergies are on the rise among children, an increase that has been linked to poor indoor air quality. Some of the causes include:
- Indoor pets
- Dust mites
- Inadequate air flow
- Chemicals from cleaning products
- Pollutants from building materials
