Southern California Indoor air quality services
With indoor air quality, there’s more than meets the eye. Baker pros know how to troubleshoot, test and treat it so you can breathe better.
A healthy home starts with healthy air
You’ve heard the dirty rumor that indoor air quality can be up to five times worse than outdoor air. Yikes! We’re not here to gossip, but we can confirm it’s true and offer some ways to improve your home’s air.
What is good indoor air quality?
In short, the EPA measures air quality in three main parts:
1. Control of airborne pollutants
These are carbon dioxide, smoke, dust, and gases from household cleaners, air fresheners, pesticides and more. Biological contaminants like mold, bacteria and pollen are included too. Even your furry little friend’s pet dander makes the list!
2. Introduction and distribution of adequate outdoor air
This means you have enough fresh outside air mixing with your indoor air, and enough indoor air moving outside. HVAC systems and natural ventilation make this happen.
3. Maintenance of acceptable temperature and relative humidity
Not just relative to comfort, these two elements affect air quality too. When they get too high, it’s becomes much easier for mold to grow and for chemicals or gases to release at a faster rate.
Why does indoor air quality matter?
You spend a lot of time in your home. That means you breathe plenty of the air your home is circulating, and it may affect your health for better or worse.
Symptoms like allergies, headaches, and asthma triggers are noticeable. But the EPA reports some health effects, like respiratory diseases or cancer, may not show until you’ve suffered years of exposure. Air quality is so important the government sets standards and regulations that public places must follow. Your home air is just as important!
Do you live in a modern home? Chances are it was designed to conserve energy by sealing in air and reducing leaks. Unfortunately, this often comes are the expense of ventilation, which is vital for letting contaminants circulate outside of your home.
