Indoor Air Pollution

“Most Americans do not have a clear sense of the significant health risks of indoor pollution. They also do not know what they can do to reduce risk of asthma, cancer, and other serious diseases caused by indoor pollutant exposure.” -Environmental Protection Agency

“Since the energy crisis of the early 1970s, emphasis on energy-efficient homes has skyrocketed. A great deal of attention centers on making homes airtight to decrease the amount of energy and expense needed for heating, which may decrease natural ventilation (an exchange of outside and inside air). Because of this, we have become concerned about the health effects of indoor air pollution within the home.” -MedFacts: Indoor Air Particulates: Wood-Burning Stoves, Gases & Fumes

Causes and Solutions

Pollution of the air in a home is higher than it has ever been. It is estimated that the air is 5 to 70 times more polluted than the air outdoors. With Americans spending up to 95% of their time indoors, we are subjecting ourselves to environmental challenges that will eventually take a toll on our health. The very young, the very old, and immunocompromised people are at the greatest risk, but everyone needs to be concerned about this problem. What is the solution? Follow the four steps to a healthy home: ventilation, humidity control, air filtration, and envelope integrity. Combining these four steps will provide an integrated approach to a healthier, more sustainable inside environment.

At HealthyAir, we are committed to helping our customers not only become more educated about the effects of this all-too-common problem, but also to provide simple, affordable methods to correct the problem.

Mold Inspection and Removal in Alpharetta, GA

After finding out we had mold in our home, we knew to turn to HeathyAir. They came out the next day and did an environmental inspection to find the cause of the mold. Once they were finished with the inspection, we had them go ahead and remove the mold over the next couple days. They were very nice and very thorough.

Mold Spores Hide Under the Stairs

Some people seem to have an uncanny sense of smell for mold spores. After receiving a call from one such customer, I was asked to perform a thorough mold investigation, utilizing all the resources at my disposal. Upon arrival, I prepared for my inspection of the eight thousand square-foot, two-story house, wondering how I would ever locate the needle in this particular haystack.
