What Are You Breathing In?

As our offices and homes become more efficient and “airtight,” we are saving money but also trapping airborne contaminants indoors with us and reducing our indoor air quality. In fact, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has said that the air in our homes can be up to 100 times more polluted than the air outside.

Common Indoor Air Pollutants Include:

  • Chemicals & Noxious Fumes

  • Mold & Fungus Spores

  • Dust & Pet Dander

  • Viruses & Bacteria

  • Unhealthy Levels of Humidity

Professional air quality testing near Greensboro, NC can cost anywhere from $100 to $800, depending on what you’re testing for. The average cost of an air quality test is about $400. You can also buy at-home testing equipment in the $50-$150 price range, but these home tests tend to be less reliable than professional air quality testing, as they don’t test for as broad a scope of contaminants.

The best way to get the cleanest air in your Greensboro area home is to improve your air filtration system and have an HVAC professional install a whole home air purification system in your central HVAC system. These systems filter contaminants out of your home’s air as it circulates through your ductwork, meaning that the air is cleaned before it blows out into your living spaces.

You should also make sure your house is clean so there are less places for allergens and irritants to build up. Sweep and mop your floors, dust all flat surfaces and launder all bed linens and, if possible, curtains regularly in order to keep dust, pollen, pet dander and other harmful particles out of your air.

Good indoor air quality supports good health while bad indoor air quality can cause health problems. Some of the adverse health effects that you can experience from poor air quality in your home include:

  • Frequent headaches.
  • Chronic sinus infections. 
  • Chronic bronchitis. 
  • Worsening allergy or asthma symptoms. 
  • Dry eyes and skin.

Poor indoor air quality (IAQ) can cause asthma and upper respiratory problems, headaches, fatigue, bacterial and viral infections, and flu-like symptoms. For these reasons, the EPA has ranked indoor air pollution within the top five environmental dangers.
