Did you know that roughly 96% of homes have at least one IAQ issue? As 1 in 5 people suffer from allergies and asthma, this is an alarming statistic.

Pollutants don’t just come from outdoor sources, but also indoor sources such as: cooking, cleaning products, smoking, building materials, consumer products and home furnishings. These indoor air pollutants come in the form of particles and/or gases.

The most effective way to improve your home’s indoor air quality is by reducing the pollutants contaminating the air and by properly ventilating your home with clean outdoor air.

A product to help solve this issue is air cleaners. Air cleaners help effectively remove bacteria, pollen, animal dander and other pollutants as small as 0.01 microns. When choosing an air filter for your home, it is important to know that the higher the MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) rating is the more efficient it will be at removing particles from the air. Air cleaners are especially recommended in the cold winter months when your home is usually closed up for extended periods of time.

To test the air quality in your home, our company offers 30-minute IAQ tests that measure the air for any levels of:

  • Particles
  • Chemicals
  • Carbon Dioxide
  • Temperature
  • Relative Humidity
  • Carbon Monoxide
