Indoor Air Quality Services & Products for Tallahassee
Research shows that, on average, Americans spend about 90 percent of their time in an indoor environment and that indoor air can be more polluted than outdoor air. This combination poses a potentially serious health risk to Tallahassee, FL residents. The good news is that it’s a risk that you can do something about.
What Causes Indoor Air Problems?
The primary cause of poor IAQ are sources that release particles or gasses into the air. Some pollution sources, such as cleaning products, are intermittent; others, such as air fresheners and furniture, release pollutants continuously. One source of indoor air pollution may not be cause for alarm; unfortunately, most homes have multiple sources of contaminants:
- Household products — cleaning, personal care, air fresheners
- Building materials and furnishings — damp carpet, wood-pressed cabinetry and wet insulation
- Outside sources — outdoor pollution, pesticides, radon
- Your HVAC and humidification system
- Combustion sources — gas, oil, kerosene, wood, coal and tobacco products
- Biological sources — pet dander, pollen, molds and dust mites
Health Effects of Poor IAQ
The health effects of poor indoor air quality depend on the pollutant, length of time exposed and level of exposure. Immediate signs of poor IAQ include sneezing, runny eyes and nose, lethargy and shortness of breath. Short-term effects include asthma, pneumonia, infectious diseases transmitted through the air and sinus infection. Cancer, heart disease, and chronic lung disease are among the long-term effects stemming from contaminated indoor air.
