What Causes Poor Indoor Air Quality?
There is no single cause of poor indoor air quality. In any given home, a number of different factors may converge into a perfect storm for subpar air quality. That is why the most effective indoor air quality systems in Fenton, MI will often comprise more than one single approach to boost air quality.
- Airtightness. One of the leading causes of subpar indoor air quality is actually how tightly constructed and sealed up homes are these days. It’s great for energy efficiency, but can lead to very stale air being trapped in a home with too little natural ventilation.
- Cleanliness. General cleanliness is going to have a major impact on your indoor air quality as well. The pollutants that you track into your home on your boots, along with dust and other debris, can go airborne in your house and cause air quality problems.
- Humidity. During the winter, the air outside gets very dry. In the summer, humidity levels are often too high for comfort. If the humidity in your home is not ideal, your air quality can suffer.
- Pets. We all love our pets, but there is no denying that their personal hygiene practices are limited. Pet dander and fur in the home is a leading cause of poor indoor air quality.
How Can I Boost Indoor Air Quality?
The good news? For just about any problem, there is an applicable solution. This is true of indoor air quality problems, as well. It’s all about choosing the right air quality systems in Fenton, MI.
- Air filtration systems and air purifiers can be used to filter out or remove pollutants from the air in the house. UV air purifiers are designed to destroy biological pollutants like mold spores, viruses, and bacteria.
