Indoor air quality is becoming increasingly important. Studies show that indoor air can be 100 times more polluted than outdoor air. Today’s advanced construction and renovation techniques create tighter, more efficient houses. But tighter houses also trap airborne microorganisms.
An important contributor to the indoor pollution problem is the air conditioning system. As air conditioning operates, moisture condenses inside the system. This creates areas that encourage mold growth and musty odors. The circulating air can pick billions of mold spores and other microscopic bio-contamination from inside the air conditioning system and spread them. This can cause increased allergic reactions and respiratory illness symptoms. Fortunately there are several ways to improve air quality. Get products from our Chicagoland team.
