Importance of Good Air Quality for you and your Family
Maintaining good indoor air quality is important for your health. According to the EPA, indoor air quality poses a greater health hazard than outdoor air pollution, with pollutant levels averaging 2 to 5 times higher than outside air. People now spend about 90% of their time indoors, so exposure to these air pollutants has never been more significant.
Products and materials present in our homes constantly emit chemicals, called VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) into the air. The slightest elevation in humidity can cause mold to grow anywhere in the home—often in places that go undetected, like behind walls or in carpeting. Exposure to VOCs and growing mold can cause a number of health issues, from headaches to respiratory irritation to increased asthma symptoms. Your health could depend on knowing exactly what’s in the air you breathe everyday.
Poor air quality can worsen respiratory illnesses and leave certain individuals vulnerable to health issues. HomeTeam can provide an affordable way to measure chemical (VOC) levels in a prospective new home. We’ll also provide an action plan to help improve the home air quality — before the move.
