The Importance Of Indoor Air Quality

May 11, 2022 | Blog

Did you know that the indoor air quality (IAQ) of your home can seriously affect your respiratory health? Your home IAQ is significant because air carries allergens and contaminants that can easily cause illness or discomfort. At Southern Air Mississippi, we prioritize your well-being by providing quality services to improve your interior air circulation.

Our trusted specialists are pros at measuring indoor air quality to keep you and your family out of harm’s way. It’s tough trying to figure out if the air inside your home is more contaminated than the air outside – which is why you need us!

How Do You Know If Your IAQ Needs Work?

Our professional monitoring equipment is used to identify the number of pollutants in your home and assess the risk. Strange odors are often the first sign that an expert needs to adjust the indoor air quality of the building for the health of the inhabitants.

One statistic from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) claims that most Americans spend 90% of their time indoors where higher levels of air pollutants are present. These particles bring negative and often long-lasting consequences if they are not regulated in a safe and healthy way.

What Are The Most Common Indoor Air Contaminants?

Fighting against allergens and pollutants in the air is a constant battle. Some of the most familiar contaminants are created naturally and are either biological or chemical.

Poor indoor air quality is often associated with impurities such as:

  • Dust
  • Pollen
  • Bacteria
  • Moisture
  • Fungi (mold)
  • Organic Chemicals
  • Smoke Emissions
  • Cleaning Solutions
  • Gasses
  • Particles

Each of these can manifest in many different ways, from our pets shedding to moisture collecting where it shouldn’t be. Construction and remodeling are also leading producers of air pollution, as well as products or equipment in use. Most of these can cause chemical spills and damage ventilation, making breathing difficult and putting you at risk for respiratory damage.

What Can You Do To Improve Your IAQ?

There are many ways to boost your indoor air quality and create a safer and healthier environment for your family. Here are some practical tips to get you started on your journey to breathing better:

Hire An Expert

Have an IAQ specialist inspect your house and test your indoor air quality. The samples they acquire while monitoring your air may point to AC unit or air duct issues. You’ll need repairs if your AC or air ducts are clogged with dust and pollen, which results in poor air circulation. These systems cannot regulate particles correctly when they are under too much strain.

Buy New Filters

Regularly purchasing new filters is essential for healthy air circulation in your home. Stay safe by purifying your indoor air with fresh filters that allow your filtration systems to run smoothly.

Control The Amount Of Water In Your Air

A robust dehumidifier is another valuable tool that ensures better IAQ. This machine controls humidity and condensation in your home and discourages harmful mold from growing.
