Indoor Air Quality Services in Chicagoland

banner

Did you know that the air inside of your home is frequently up to 5 times dirtier than the air outside? It’s true! The sun’s rays clean outdoor air naturally, but indoor air becomes stale and contaminated over time. If you and your family have been experiencing allergies out of season, the problem may be your indoor air quality.

Why is Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) important?

What can be more important than the air you breathe? Having good quality air inside your home can greatly impact the health of you and your family. Indoor air can be as much as 10 to 100 times more polluted than outdoor air. Many of us spend a significant time at home. Imagine spending all of that time breathing in dust, dirt, spores and allergens!

These can cause health issues such as irritation of the eyes, nose and throat, headaches, dizziness and fatigue. More long term effects on health have also been linked to poor air quality such as asthma and hypersensitivity pneumonitis. Indoor air quality affects three main areas of concern:

  1. Your health
  2. The preservation of material goods contained within your home
  3. Your sensation of comfort

How can I improve my Chicago home’s indoor air quality?

Improving indoor air quality involves:

  • Purification- Removing dust, spores dirt and allergens from the air can do a great deal to improve your health and how you feel. Have unpleasant odors lurking in your home? Worried about smoke particles or VOCs (volatile organic compounds)? Our systems can provide you with allergy protection, odor reduction and more!
  • Humidification- It is important to control humidity in your home, because too much or too little can lead to poor indoor air quality. Air humidity below 30% is unhealthy and can trigger respiratory symptoms and cause dry skin, coughing and sneezing, and itchy eyes. Humidity of more than 50%, however, can also be unhealthy and cause mold, fungi and bacteria to grow. An air humidifier helps adjust the humidity by measuring the current air humidity and adding or removing humidity in the air to a pre-determined amount.
