Poor Indoor Air Quality Can Result in Exposure to Chemicals
Poor indoor air quality can have drastic effects on your health. It can cause asthma, headaches, nasal congestion, and fatigue, and even contribute to lung cancer and dangerous infections. You may not be aware that the pollution inside a poorly ventilated building can be up to 10 times as harmful as outside air, even when the latter is polluted by heavy traffic and power plants. If you’re concerned about Jackson air quality issues, you should consider having a well-established air conditioning company take a look at your home or work area. At Environment Masters, we are ready to help you improve the conditions of your living and working environments and reduce the health complications that stem from poor ventilation.
Indoor Pollutants Can Combine to Produce Toxic Materials
It’s bad enough having mold and other microbial pollutants in your home. But did you know that these pollutants, including plant pollen and pet dander, can combine with volatile chemicals such as radon to produce highly toxic compounds? These compounds are often the cause of allergies, asthma and other ailments related to poor indoor air quality. If you’re like most people, you probably spend the vast majority of your life indoors, with most of that being in your own home. It’s important to ensure that the air quality in your home doesn’t have a negative impact on your health. Even the slightest amount of toxic chemicals will add up due to the duration of exposure.
Keep in mind that your house probably contains lots of harmful chemicals. Even your furniture might contain compounds such as formaldehyde and polychlorinated biphenyl. If you’re worried about exposure, contact Environment Masters at 601-353-4681 to assess your indoor air quality.
