Indoor Air Quality ~Breath Better ~ Live Healthier in Roseville 95678
It is now common knowledge that indoor air pollution is an issue of growing concern throughout the Country. In the past decade, an increasing amount of scientific evidence has indicated that the air within our homes and offices can be more seriously polluted than the outdoor air in even the largest and most industrialized cities.
Additional research has shown that people spend the majority of their time, around 90%, indoors. Surprisingly, for many people the risks to their health may be greater due to exposure to air pollution indoors rather than outdoors. Experts also conclude that people who are exposed to indoor air pollutants for the longest periods of time tend to be the most vulnerable to the effects of indoor air pollution.
Pet dander, cooking oils, air fresheners, dirt, mildew, insecticides, dust, paint and aerosol sprays are just a few of the contaminants that drift through the air in our homes. These fragments eventually come to rest inside of the air ducts in even the cleanest of homes.
Particles of dust, pollen and other debris routinely found in all types of heating and cooling systems are some of the main causes of contaminated air in residential housing. If moisture is present, the potential for the growth of mold is increased and spores from such growth can be released into the home’s living space. Every time the blower to your furnace or air conditioner comes on, pollutants are blown into your living space, causing the air you breathe to be far less than clean. Some of these contaminants may cause allergic reactions or other symptoms in people that are exposed to them. The American Lung Association states, “fragile lung tissue can be easily damaged by pollutants in the air, resulting in an increased risk of asthma, allergies and bronchitis”.
