Is the Air in Your Home Safe to Breathe?

One of the leading contributing factors to asthma in children, and illness in general, is the lack of clean air indoors in your home. The mechanical circulation and movement of the air within your residence may lead you to believe that it is somehow fresh and filtered and pure. However, unchanged filtration pads and neglected duct work can be harboring the spores of molds and other fungi along with pet dander, dust mites and pollen as well as regular household dust.

One of the leading contributing factors to asthma in children, and illness in general, is the lack of clean air indoors in your home. The mechanical circulation and movement of the air within your residence may lead you to believe that it is somehow fresh and filtered and pure. However, unchanged filtration pads and neglected duct work can be harboring the spores of molds and other fungi along with pet dander, dust mites and pollen as well as regular household dust.

Common household dust, by the way, is comprised in great part of the 700,000 plus human skin cells that we shed on a daily basis. Multiply that number the number of members in your family, and you might come up with an astounding figure. A family of three, for instance, will shed approximate 2.1 million cells combined on a daily basis, which appears throughout your household in the form of dust upon your television screens and knickknacks. If that seems all too offensive to consider, then you may want to take a minute to weigh your options for improving the air quality of your home.

Some of the measures that can be taken to decrease the number of allergens and pollutants circulating throughout your home are as simple as throwing open the windows and allowing the fresh, outside air to sweep through your home and replace the stale air therein. Another simple method to aid in cleaning up the indoor air is changing the filter of your ventilation system. The recommended lifespan of an air filter is a single month.

Out of sight, out of mind is an applicable adage, when it comes to filter replacement. However, it is one of the simplest methods of contributing to cleaner air within the home. If you are looking to start completely fresh, though, you may want to consider hiring a professional air duct cleaning service to come in and do a thorough de-dusting and purification of the vents and ventilation ducts of your home.

The pollutants circulating throughout your home may, over time, contribute to physiological irritation that can compromise the immune systems of both you and your family members. Respiratory and heart diseases have been linked to poor indoor air quality, as has cancer.

Taking the necessary precautions is simply a matter of making a conscious effort to keep the air inside of your home clean: clean duct work, new filters and weekly wind sweeping the home with open windows and fresh, outdoor air.
