Indoor Air Quality: Common Problems And Solutions


Do you sometimes wonder if there’s a problem with your indoor air quality? Some indoor air quality problems are obvious but others are more subtle or difficult to detect. Here are a few things that can go wrong with your air quality and what you can do to fix it.

Allergies & Asthma

While your indoor air quality doesn’t cause your allergies or asthma, it can make them worse. If you have a lot of dust, debris, pet dander or mold in your air, it can make it harder to breathe. When you feel like your allergies or asthma are worst at home and there’s not another explanation, it’s time to have your indoor air quality checked.

If it turns out that there are things in your air that can cause problems, there are a number of possible solutions. We can start by cleaning your ducts and vents, which removes any collected dust and debris. Then, we can treat your system with agents that should destroy any mold or mildew. Finally, we can even seal your system so particles from outside cannot get into it.

Frequent Or Chronic Illness

Do you feel like you are sick all the time? Do you get mysterious sinus infections or other respiratory infections and you’re not sure why? If all or most of the people who live in your house are frequently sick, the air quality might be the explanation behind all of your illness. Certain types of mold or bacteria can get in your system and cause these infections.

We will treat your system for whatever we find when we test your air quality. We can put anti-bacterial agents into it or treat for mold and then make sure moisture stays out of it so the problem doesn’t come back. You should be able to breath easy soon!

Bad Odors

Does your home smell bad? Do you frequently smell something “off” in your home and you’re not sure what it is or where it’s coming from? If it happens regularly and you can’t find another cause, look into your indoor air quality.

We can come out and test to see if the bad smell is coming from a problem with the system. We will also check things like the location of your air intakes. If these are close to where your dog poops or where your neighbor stores their trash cans, this could be the cause of the bad smell in your house. We can also check for dead animals in your ventilation system, mold contamination, and more. Once we find the cause, it’s usually straightforward to figure out a solution to the problem.

No matter what is going wrong with the air in your home, we’ll get it fixed for you fast. Our environmental experts will test the air, let you know what they find, and come up with a plan to get your air cleaned up fast. Pretty soon, you’ll be able to breathe easy at home again.
