Air Scrubber Installation | Indoor Air Quality Services | Waldrop
Indoor air can be two to five times more polluted than the air on a busy outside street. Poor indoor air quality (IAQ) can have severe, negative effects on the human respiratory system, especially people who suffer from asthma, allergies, or other respiratory issues. Common pollutants that contribute to poor air include volatile organic compounds (VOCs), pet dander, dust mites, mildew, mold, and poorly maintained heating or cooling systems.
Read on to learn more about IAQ, how to diagnose IAQ problems, and how air scrubbers can help.
Signs that May Indicate an Indoor Air Quality Problem
- Your allergies are flaring up. Whether it’s sneezing, coughing, a runny nose, or maybe allergies where once you had none, if you notice new symptoms or your allergies worsening, this could be a sign of poor home IAQ.
- You are often sick. Do you frequently wake up exhausted, nursing a headache, or wincing through a sore throat? If so, you’ll want to be sure poor IAQ isn’t the problem.
- Your home is getting up there in years. Older homes usually have less efficient ventilation. This can mean that dust, VOCs, mold, etc., have an easier time hanging around.
- You just moved into your “dream home.” Because it’s a new space, it’s an unknown factor. Dangerous hidden IAQ hazards could be lurking where you can’t see them – mold in the walls, dust in the ducts, etc. Be sure to have a technician you trust thoroughly inspect your new home for air quality issues before you get settled.
Any of this sound worryingly familiar? Call Waldrop at (864) 536-0887 to schedule a full IAQ diagnosis or schedule service online today.
Air Scrubbers – An Overview
What if we told you that modern technology has conquered the poor air quality problem, with absolutely no effort or hassle necessary for homeowners?
Well, we have some good news. That’s exactly what an air scrubber can do.
An air scrubber is a mechanism that attaches directly to the inner ducts of your HVAC system. It removes surface contaminants, pet dander, VOCs, odors, dust, and more. This “set it and forget it” device uses UV light waves along with a specialized catalyst process to keep your home safer, cleaner, and better for your lungs. The average air scrubber has been proven to eradicate up to 99% of all surface contaminants and works effectively against MRSA, E.coli, and other viruses and bacteria.
