Maintaining proper indoor air quality is critical to safeguard your family’s health. There are several techniques to reduce the danger of indoor air pollution. Here are three threats to the quality of your Grapevine, TX indoor air, and what you can do about them.
Volatile Organic Compounds
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) include fumes, smoke and vapors that emit unpleasant scents and may be harmful to your health. Paint and cooking emissions as well as vapors from some fragrances and cleaning chemicals are examples of typical household VOCs.
If you’ve been having ventilation problems in your house or if you’ve noticed gaseous odors in your home, call a professional immediately to make sure you’re not facing a more serious problem. Even short-term exposure to less hazardous VOCs can be harmful to your health, so installing air purifiers to help decrease the amount of VOCs in your home is a good idea.
Dust in the home accumulates rapidly and easily. Pet fur, bug remnants, lint and dirt are frequent dust components. These substances can cause allergic reactions or asthma attacks in those sensitive to them.
Ductwork may also collect a lot of dust. Contact a comfort specialist to install a purifier to clean your ducts, so you can enjoy fresh, clean air. This can eliminate indoor air quality concerns.
Viruses and Bacteria
Airborne viruses and bacteria can cause disease, and they can stay in your home’s air. As a result, the likelihood of illness spreading to members of your household rises. Using high-performance filters and UV lights designed to destroy germs, you can eliminate viruses and bacteria that may be present in your air.
