Now that summer is fast approaching, indoor air quality should be considered as we all try to chill out. Indoor air quality can be affected by mold, bacteria, carbon monoxide, radon and volatile organic compounds, and source control is the primary method for improving indoor air quality.
The average American spends more than 90% of their time indoors, yet experiences more pollution and increased asthma rates than those spending more time outdoors. Indoor air pollution levels can be up to 100 times higher indoors than those outdoors
Mold, dust and pollen are not the only biological contaminants that negatively affect indoor air quality. Pests such as cockroaches, rodents and dust mites have a large impact on the air building occupants breathe and pose a serious health threat.
We take for granted the air we breathe. Clean air is critical. That's especially true indoors, where air filtration and ventilation systems may not always be working at optimum levels. Similarly, poor indoor air quality can have a considerable impact on our overall health.
Fortunately, you can clean the air in your home so that you don't have to put up with these unpleasant and sometimes dangerous symptoms. For more information on repairs and maintenance on your central air conditioning system, contact Central Plumbing and Heating.
