Allergies & Asthma

Problem: Allergies, Asthma, Respiratory Problems. Respiratory problems - including asthma and allergies - can be compounded by the poor indoor air quality found in many homes.

Solution: Indoor air is anywhere from 2 to 100 times more polluted than the air outdoors, and poor indoor air quality is one of the EPA's top 5 environmental threats to public health. Chemicals from building materials and other objects inside the home, particulates from dirt and dust, smoke and mold can all contribute to poor air quality, which can exacerbate existing respiratory conditions such as asthma and allergies, and create new ones.

Humidity is also a major contributing factor when it comes to indoor air quality. To high or low humidity encourages the growth of mold and other allergies. High humidity is also the major factor in keeping your home comfortable.

Properly air sealing your home will reduce the poor indoor air quality. A properly air sealed home means that the cleaned, conditioned air stays inside while the humid, dusty air stays outside. Most homes see 40% of the air the infiltrates there home coming directly from the attic, which is full of dust, feces, VOC and humidity. Air sealing this section of the home is the most difficult but will also ensure that your home is clean and supplied with clean fresh air.
