Although we hear a lot about outdoor pollution being a pressing issue, indoor air pollution can be worse than it is outside. The exterior walls of your home act like a barrier to the toxins and hold them inside, allowing them to build up. Some of these pollutants come from the outdoor air and soil only to seep in through cracks in the walls and foundation, or through an inefficient ventilation system. Worse than these can be the pollutants we create inside our very homes. Our furnaces and water heaters can produce Carbon Monoxide gas, an odorless and toxic chemical that silently attacks your respiratory system. Cleaning chemicals and other products we use inside can also contribute to chemicals building up inside that we should not be breathing.
If you feel your home is having indoor air quality issues that could be detrimental to your health, improper ventilation may be the culprit. The indoor air is either not being filtered properly in your home, or there may be inadequate air circulation throughout the rooms of your home. Stagnant air in homes creates the perfect environment for toxins and allergens to accumulate. As well as providing the diagnosis of your home’s air quality, Beaver Brothers is also committed to providing our customers a full set of solutions to fix these problems – and we have the experience to back it up.
