Indoor air if often two to five times more contaminated than outdoor air. Does the air you breathe inside your home contain these hidden contaminants?

Dust & Pet Dander

Dust mites and pet dander have a tendency to collect on carpets, furniture, and bedding.

Mold

Mold can quickly develop in areas with humidity levels above 60%, such as the crawl space.

Viruses & Bacteria

Heating and cooling system filters often do not remove germs from your indoor air.

Pollen

Outdoor pollen can seep indoors through air leaks in your home’s exterior.

Volatile Organic Compounds

VOCs can cause eye, nose, and throat irritation and emanate from synthetic fabrics, pressed wood furniture, paints, and more.

Carbon Monoxide

This invisible yet lethal gas can leak from combustion appliances inside your home.

6 Ways to Improve Indoor Air Quality

Remove Mold
