The Importance of Indoor Air Quality

According to the EPA, not only do Americans spend nearly 90% of their time indoors, but indoor levels of pollutants can be 2-to-5 times higher than pollutants outdoors.1 The many sources of indoor air pollution including gas, oil, kerosene, tobacco, asbestos, soaked carpet, wood treatment chemicals, hobby-related chemicals, humidifiers, and pesticides, among others.

With so much time spent indoors, Americans are subject to the many respiratory problems associated with the continuous inhalation of harmful airborne particles. Peoples’ moods, diet, anxiety, and sleep patterns can all be impacted by inhaling harmful particles. Likewise, for young children, the risks of breathing contaminated air are even higher because children breathe more air in proportion to their body weight.2

Why would you breathe dirty air?

Breathing is a necessity for survival, but breathing tainted air, just like eating spoiled food, can put your health seriously at risk. While you may associate poor indoor air quality with highly polluted areas, the truth is that nearly all homes have some kind of indoor air quality problem—even if you change your HVAC air filter regularly. The problem is that harmful, microscopic air particles like viruses, bacteria, and allergens pass unseen through your home’s air every day.

These airborne contaminants join with VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) to create a potentially harmful air quality throughout the home. VOCs are gases emitted from certain solids or liquids—things like air fresheners, pesticides, cleaning agents, glues, paint strippers, stoves, fireplaces, heaters. VOCs can be present in the indoors in proportions up to ten times greater than the outdoors. VOCs pose particular health problems for children, the elderly, and those with respiratory problems. To assist in reducing the negative effects of VOCs, consider a whole house air purification unit.

Asthma and Allergies

Indoor Air Quality - Sears Home Services

Allergens are present in homes year round. Allergens are more likely to proliferate in homes where no precautions have been taken to control their dispersion, and in homes that do not invest in professional cleaning proven to reduce allergens. Carpet can act as a trap for allergens, and if not properly maintained and cleaned, your carpeting can release allergens throughout the year. Likewise, your air ducts accumulate several pounds of dust each year, continually recirculating that dust while your HVAC unit runs.

For professional home cleaning that can significantly reduce allergen levels in your home, consider Sears Carpet and Air Duct Cleaning. Our staff of trained, background-checked employees use professional cleaning equipment to rid homes of dust and debris in a way ordinary home cleaning can’t. Whether it’s carpet cleaning you’re interested in, or if you’d like air duct cleaning to rid your ducts of the many pounds of dust that have gathered over the years, the Sears team is on the job.
