The Importance of Indoor Air Quality Monitoring
You have probably heard of air pollution in terms of the outdoors, but are you familiar with the concept of indoor air contamination? There are a number of pollutants that can affect the air quality and healthy environment of your home. Here are a few reasons why monitoring your home’s indoor air quality is so important, and what you can do about it.
The main reason you should track your indoor air quality is to guard against the health hazards of pollutants. Dust, pet dander, airborne mold spores, and even deadly carbon monoxide can be lurking invisibly in your house. Especially if people living in your home have allergies or sensitive lungs, like those of small children and the elderly, then having clean air is crucial for their safety.
How to Test
When it comes to monitoring your air quality, you can either purchase an at-home air test and use it yourself, or you can seek professional help. Having a professional test for your home’s air quality means that it will be more thorough. This is a good choice if you have never tested your indoor air quality before.
Maintaining Air Quality
Often, the most straight-forward air quality issue comes down to your air filters. Make sure to use only high-quality air filters, and stay up to date with changing them. However, if your home has poor air quality, it could be a sign of a bigger problem. Water damage can lead to excess humidity and mold, which will all hurt the air quality of your home.
