If you have allergy sufferers in your Portsmouth, VA, home, it may be time to schedule an indoor air quality evaluation. In a home with poor air quality, allergies and asthma can affect your children and their comfort. This guide will explain how an IAQ home evaluation can help you improve your home’s air quality and what to expect with this assessment.
What Good Air Quality Includes
There’s a lot to consider when you want to improve your IAQ. Some ways of assuring the best air quality are through:
- Adequate ventilation.
- Control of contaminants.
- Comfortable humidity levels.
Opening doors and windows as well as implementing HVAC solutions and maintaining present systems can increase ventilation. Humidity levels should be between 30%-50%. You can achieve this by using a combination of a humidifier and dehumidifier.
How Poor Air Quality Can Affect You
Many people work from home these days, and poor air quality can affect productivity as well as comfort and health. Some of the symptoms you might experience include mucous irritation, headache, fatigue, nausea, dryness and allergic reactions. Think about your family’s health and comfort when it comes to air quality.
