You may have mold, dust, pollen, or allergens in your home and not even know it. If this is the case, your family may be suffering from poor air quality in the home.

These unwanted particles enter through doors and open windows and eventually end up in your heating and cooling system. Dust, pollen, and mold spores float through the air and settle onto counters, furnishings, and flooring. Vacuuming and wiping down hard surfaces will help keep these particles at bay but, unless you address your heating and cooling systems, you will continue to have pollutants in your home’s air supply.

Contaminates build up in your air ducts over time and re-enter your living space when the air conditioner cycles on and off. If you find yourself dusting excessively, you may want to call an indoor air quality specialist and certified mold inspector. A trained mold inspector will test your air and identify the airborne particulates you have in your home.

Here are signs the air quality is poor in your home. Call a remediation expert to inspect your home today! We can fully diagnose any mold, mildew, and allergen suspicions you have and help you improve your environment.

You Have Excessive Moisture in Your Home

Areas of your home that are prone to moisture, such as the bathroom and laundry room, can be prime locations for mold and mildew to thrive. Mold and mildew are more likely present in rooms that are also poorly ventilated.

Mold and mildew can usually be smelled, leaving behind a musty, dirty dishrag or muddy odor behind. Call for a professional mold inspection if you see dark stains on walls or ceilings, as mold may be present.

You’ve Endured Ongoing Colds & Allergies

What may come across as seasonal colds or allergies, particularly in very young children and the elderly, may actually be upper respiratory responses to poor home air quality.

Exposure to indoor mold and allergens may cause runny noses, frequent headaches, red and itchy eyes, scratchy throats, and coughing. If symptoms seem to improve when family members are away from the home but return when they are back indoors again, then your home’s air quality may be to blame.

An air quality specialist will inspect your home’s vents, windows, and other areas of the home to see what allergens and mold or mildew issues you have and make recommendations to make your home’s air cleaner. Call us at Bio Protection Systems, Inc. today.
