Indoor Air Quality Services in Palm Desert
Improve the Air Quality of Your Home or Business
It’s safe to say you want what’s best for yourself and your loved ones. The air you breathe every day directly affects your lungs and respiratory system, so even a minute amount of pollutants can lead to long-lasting health problems and organ damage. When people think of air pollutants, they generally imagine a busy city street full of smog and fuel emissions but don’t realize the air inside of a building can be just as dangerous. At A #1 Service Heroes we can help prevent pollutants from affecting your indoor air quality.
What Are Pollutants
Pollutants can include:
- Chemicals in everyday cleaning solutions
Poor Indoor Air Quality can lead to Health Risks for your Family
Being exposed to high levels of lead dust, mostly found in paints and homes from before 1980, can seriously affect children’s brain and nervous systems. Over-the-counter pesticides have also been linked to health problems in children; even when administered correctly, pesticides can linger in the air or in the dust that resides in your home.
Dust mites and mold are the most common contributors to household air pollutants. Dust forms from everyday human activity and are made from hair follicles, dead skin, and dirt. An increase in traffic in your home can cause a significant uprising in the dust around your home. Especially in our dry region, dust can irritate the eyes and sinuses and cause allergy problems. Mold is even more harmful. Even trace amounts of mold in your home can cause wheezing and skin irritations, and it’s especially dangerous for children with weaker immune systems.
Whole House Humidifiers Installed & Maintained
A simple way to prevent pollutants from occurring in your home is to keep a healthy level of humidity. Humidity levels should be kept at about 30 to 50 percent in your home to keep allergens under control. An AC unit in the summer can regulate your levels of humidity and decrease pollen in the air, preventing pollutants from settling. Keeping the filters in your AC unit clean and knowing which air filter is best for your home are important steps in reducing pollutants. A #1 Service Heroes can help ease your worries by inspecting your AC unit’s filters, ensuring the safety of your home from harmful household pollutants.
