Issues Indoors

Whether you live in an apartment, town home or single-family home, it is necessary to protect and improve your indoor air quality. Indoor issues exist in your home that cause health related illness including volatile organic compounds, particulate matter, formaldehyde, mold, allergens, fiberglass, carbon monoxide, bacteria and water quality.

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are a large group of carbon-based chemicals that can cause illness to occupants. VOCs are emitted into indoor air from building materials, furnishings, cleaning compounds, office equipment, personal care products and air fresheners.

Formaldehyde is another  volatile organic compound that is commonly found in the environment and in consumer products including furniture products, wood flooring and carpets. Exposure to formaldehyde occurs by breathing contaminated air indoors.

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) defines PM as particulate matter also called particle pollution. Once inhaled, particles can affect the heart and lungs cause serious health effects.

Mold spores exist in household dust and when inhaled can cause allergic and respiratory issues.

Bacteria cells

Allergens originate from dust mites which are microscopic insects that live in abundance in people’s homes, allergens from insect droppings, called frass as well as cat and dog allergens that may be present from previous homeowners.

Fiberglass particles because of its size and composition can be a respiratory and skin irritant. It’s presence in household dust can result in occupant exposure leading to health issues long term.

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless, toxic gas which interferes with the oxygen carrying capacity of blood and can overcome people without warning. Sources of CO indoors include dryers, water heaters, fireplaces, gas stoves and ovens, motor vehicles, grills, generators and power tools,

Bacteria is present in all indoor and outdoor environments and certain areas of a residence are prone to exposures of harmful disease causing bacteria. Kitchens, food prep areas, bathrooms and water supply all provide routine exposure to harmful bacteria.
