This will help you to live in a healthful environment, as well. There is a lot that can potentially go wrong with your indoor air quality, but our team is happy to help.
What Causes Poor Indoor Air Quality?
The trouble with improving indoor air quality in North Seattle, WA is that there are so many different potential causes of subpar air quality. Some of these are within the homeowner’s control. You may benefit from vacuuming more frequently, for instance, or refraining from smoking in the house. Other issues are not as easily controlled, though.
- Proximity to major roadways or construction sites could lead to increased levels of airborne pollutants in the house. Using an air filtration system can help you to remove those pollutants. Electronic air cleaners may be better suited to your home and situation. We’ll make sure that you have the right equipment in place.
- Humidity levels are another major contributor to air quality issues. The humidity in your home is not going to exactly reflect the humidity outdoors. A lot of factors, such as the air-tightness of your home, will affect the humidity levels therein. We install and service whole-house humidifiers and dehumidifiers.
- Pets are a huge issue when it comes to indoor air quality. They shed, and they produce dander. They also aren’t great about wiping their feet before entering the house! You aren’t just going to give up on your beloved pets, of course. You just need the right fixes to the IAQ problems that they create.
