Indoor Air Quality Services
We all face and accept a variety of risks in our daily lives. But not everyone is aware of poor indoor air quality (IAQ) at home. But the hard truth is—particulates, household chemicals, and organic pathogens can concentrate in our homes and create serious health risks. At Over the Moon, we provide air quality services to determine what’s polluting your home’s air and find solutions to improve the situation.
Poor indoor air quality can make you sick. The symptoms of polluted air in your home range from sneezing and coughing to asthma to more serious health issues. Long-term exposure to some pollutants, such as smoke or radon, can increase the risk of lung cancer. Soot, ozone, carbon monoxide, and other contaminants can put you at risk of a heart attack or stroke. At the very least, poor IAQ can cause discomfort and make it difficult to sleep.
What Can We Do to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality?
The first step to improving IAQ is indoor air quality testing. Indoor air pollution has many sources. They can originate from outside or inside your home. Whether the problem is due to gases released by cooking, cleaning, or from paint; inadequate ventilation or pollutants circulating from clogged ducts; or high temperature or humidity levels, Over the Moon can find a solution.
Types of Indoor Air Quality Testing We Provide
When evaluating your home, we’ll use the appropriate test methods to check for:
It’s odorless and colorless, but carbon monoxide can be present in any home. This by-product of combustion can be released by a malfunctioning furnace or gas appliance. In light concentrations, it can cause fatigue and flu-like symptoms. High concentrations of CO are often deadly. We use the latest equipment to detect the smallest amounts and determine their source.
Most people don’t consider humidity a hazard. Nonetheless, it can increase the concentration of some pollutants. Water molecules can hold onto some allergens and support bacterial growth. High humidity can also increase the risk of viral infections and attract dust mites that cause allergy symptoms.
Particulate matter (PM) is a common indoor pollutant. Particles vary in size and many are microscopic. The smaller the particle, the deeper into the lungs it can reach and the greater the potential for long-term damage.
Sources of PM include cooking, heating, cleaning, and consumer products such as printers and copiers. Fireplaces, candles, space heaters, and other heating equipment can also introduce PM into your home. Biological sources include pets and other animals, vermin, insects, plants, and mold. And PM can originate from outdoors as well, from sources such as pollen, vehicle exhaust, and wildfires.
Unpleasant odors can affect your quality of life and well-being. They can also signal certain chemicals may be in the air, even in low concentrations. If an odor is stronger in a certain area and associated with other physical symptoms, it can be considered an IAQ issue. You should call a professional to investigate it.
Mold can quickly spread through the air and into your air ducts. It can trigger allergic reactions. Some molds release mycotoxins that can cause severe illness if inhaled. The presence of mold is often associated with high humidity, dampness, a leak, or a flood. If you can’t clean the mold, call a professional to test what type it is and provide mold remediation and moisture control solutions.
Services We Offer
Over the Moon provides a range of effective solutions to improve indoor air quality, including:
- UV Lights: Installing an ultraviolet light in your HVAC system can kill bacteria, mold, and other organic contaminants by damaging their genetic material. Therefore, UV light can neutralize and eliminate harmful organisms.
- Humidifiers: Dry air can aggravate allergies and make it easier to catch a cold or the flu. It can also increase static electricity. A humidifier adds moisture to the air. In the right amounts, it can improve comfort and indoor air quality.
- Dehumidifiers: Depending on the humidity level in your home, a dehumidifier can improve IAQ. It is not an air purifier in and of itself, but a dehumidifier can reduce mold and mildew, dust mites, and some volatile organic compounds.
