3 Unsavory Contaminants in Your Air and How We Can Help Get Rid of Them

Do you know what unseen invaders are floating around in your home? Okay, maybe that is a tad dramatic but we do want you to take a moment to consider what contaminants may be in your home. This isn’t the result of ghosts in the house. It is simply the reality that many modern homes face–your home is well-sealed but struggles with poor indoor air quality.

Poor indoor air quality is going to translate to airborne particulates that are less than desirable circulating around your house over and over again. This doesn’t just include dust. There are plenty of contaminants that can find their way into your home that you probably would rather get rid of. Our team can help with that. Let’s discuss some of the scarier contaminants that may have found their way indoors and what our team can do to help get them out.

These 3 Types of Contaminants May Be In Your Home

So what are these contaminants we are talking about? There are, of course, the usual offenders such as dust, pollen, fur, etc. But we’re focusing on some of the more harmful things that might get into your home and start to cause problems for your comfort and your health. These include:

  1. Mold spores: Mold in the home is never good. Spores can find their way in on clothes, bags, and a variety of other items. The key is to be able to root them out before they start to grow. Otherwise, you may find yourself facing a mold problem that can lead to major home repairs and health impacts.
  2. Viruses and bacteria: You may have had a friend or family member coming to your house that was carrying a virus and left it behind without knowing it. Viruses and bacteria can find their way into your home in a variety of ways. Having them circulating around the house over and over again increases the likelihood that you were a loved one will become sick.
  3. VOCs: Volatile organic chemicals, also known as VOCs are emitted by certain solids or liquids and can be found in a wide number of household products. VOCs can be emitted by paints, lacquers, and paint strippers, cleaning supplies, pesticides, building materials, craft materials, glues, and more. These chemicals can be found in high concentrations in many modern homes, usually at around ten times higher than they are outside, according to the EPA. This is concerning because exposure to these chemicals can have both short and long-term health impacts.

Combat Nasty Contaminants With a Purifier

Air filtration systems are highly helpful when combating dust, dirt, pollen, and other contaminants. However, if you are looking to battle some of the meaner contaminants that we’ve listed up above then you may be better off with an air purifier in Farmington, NM. Air purifiers that are installed by a professional have the ability to remove airborne contaminants from the airflow in your home or destroy them.
