Should I Worry About Air Quality?

Pollutants that contaminate indoor air can cause several health problems. These issues can range in severity from coughing sneezing and skin irritation to congestion dizziness and other respiratory problems. Those with asthma or other respiratory diseases are extraordinarily susceptible to these contaminants. Poor air quality can be a major contributing factor to tenant and employee illness, workplace absenteeism, and reduced productivity. All of these factors add up to additional costs.

What Creates Poor Indoor Air Quality?

Any number of pollutants may contribute to poor indoor air quality in residential commercial and industrial buildings. These contributing factors include but are not limited to:

  • Mold Growth Caused By Water Damage
  • Smoke Residue
  • Outdoor Pollutants
  • Pesticides
  • Emissions From Office Equipment Dust Mites
  • Malfunctioning HVAC Systems
  • Building materials containing Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).

Indoor air quality can be impacted by everyday objects that most people aren’t aware can be harmful. These factors include overall temperature humidity the presence of pests or pets that are sources of allergens.
