Air pollutants lower the quality of your indoor air and reduce your home comfort level. They also affect your family’s health by increasing the chances of developing respiratory illnesses and allergies. Here are three different air pollutants that can negatively impact indoor air quality in Altamonte Springs, FL.
Dust, Pollen and Dirt
Your home may accumulate a lot of dirt, dust, pollen, pet dander and other smaller particles from the outdoor air. These air contaminants may trigger allergies in family members who are hypersensitive and suffer from asthma attacks. Family members may also develop other respiratory illnesses.
Dirty or clogged air filters may cause dust and other air pollutants to enter your home. Regularly replacing or cleaning your air filters can help to trap these pollutants. You can also install air purifiers that help eliminate air contaminants and improve your indoor air quality.
Chemical Fumes and Vapors
Paint products, solvents, plastics, chemical deodorants, home aerosols and cleaning substances create chemical fumes in your home. Building materials, carpet, asbestos, and substances that contain formaldehyde and fire retardants cause pollution.
These materials release harmful chemical fumes that lower the quality of your indoor air. They may also lead to serious respiratory illnesses. Having an air purifier in your home will help you eliminate these pollutants and maintain your home comfort.
Water damage in your home can lead to excess moisture in your indoor air. This encourages the growth of biological contaminants that lower the quality of your indoor air. Having a service technician fix any water leaks and installing dehumidifiers can help stop the growth of these contaminants.
