The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recognises indoor air quality as a danger to human health, and given that we spend most our times indoors (especially in the winter months), it is important to create a healthy indoor atmosphere free from hidden pollutants.

Check Your Heat Sources

Ensure that your wood burning, and gas stoves are well ventilated to limit the production of carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons produced. Check air filters on these products to ensure they are not blocked or damage, letting harmful toxins escape into your home.

Avoid Smoking Indoors

Second hand tobacco smoke is one of the main causes of indoor air quality problems as it can lead to the accumulation of smoke and toxic substances. Smoke is associated with numerous cancer-causing substances that affect human health and in some cases can lead to throat and lung cancer.

Install Adequate Ventilation

Humid air in a property in areas such as the kitchen and bathroom increases the exposure of condensation, damp and mould.

The installation of a whole house ventilation unit compared to a dehumidifier or air purifier will help reduce exposure and bring outdoor air in, filtering it simultaneously throughout, and improve indoor air quality.
