Improving Indoor Air Quality in Houston and surround areas, TX
About 20% of Americans encounter poor air quality either at home or in their offices!
Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) has a huge impact on your family’s health. Poor IAQ can cause several health issues, some of which manifest as mental fog, fatigue, headaches, asthma, as well as irritation of the lungs, nose, throat and eyes.
Research on air quality shows that the quality of indoor air can sometimes be worse than that of outdoor air, even for highly industrialized cities.
EPA estimates that indoor air contains up to five times more pollution than outdoor air!
IAQ depends on several factors that pollute the air. For example, the humidity may be too low or too high, or there may be problems controlling the temperature. Further, the use of chemicals during deep cleaning and remodeling may pollute the air.
Most homes experience air pollution from one form of pollutant or the other such as carbon monoxide, cleaning supplies, dust from renovation, pesticides, volatile organic compound (VOCs), mold, or other airborne chemicals. These substances have a negative impact on air quality.
The most important aspect of improving IAQ is having proper ventilation. Heating and cooling systems also play a big role in determining internal air quality.
At ProGeneralService, the experts offer services that help ensure quality air. Apart from air duct cleaning services, they also perform indoor air quality analysis after which they give solutions to better air quality.

Mold and Mildew
Mold and mildew can flourish in any part of a house where the conditions are ripe. Although it may not be noticeable, it releases gases into the air, which cause health issues such as:
Gas leaks result from harmful pollutants due to everyday activities.
The most common and lethal gasses are Carbon monoxide (CO) and Nitrogen dioxide (NO2). Interestingly, they are products of the daily use of household items. Although NO2 is reddish-brown in color with a distinctive odor, CO has no odor or color. The nature of CO2 makes it the most dangerous gas as you can be inhaling it without knowing.
Many lives are lost in the US yearly due to these gases. Some of the most common sources for these deadly gases are:
Radon is a deadly gas that emanating from the soil, and which can seep into homes. It poses no major threat to your health when emitted outdoors as it dilutes into the expansive outdoor air. However, it poses a huge health risk when it seeps into your house.
Some quick facts about Radon include:
Do-it-yourself radon test kits exist. However, it is advisable to engage professionals to test for this gas.
Ultraviolet UV Light Air Purifiers
Installing a UV/Ultraviolet Light air purifier into the HVAC system ductwork is a viable solution to improve IAQ.
A germicidal UVC Light Purifier is a device installed in the air ducts to purify and sanitize air, improving air quality for the home or office.
As air passes through the purifier, the UV light makes the pollutants in the air such as viruses, mold and bacteria harmless, by altering their genetic molecular structure. Thus, the air from the system is purified and safe to breathe.
Filtration as a process may help reduce air pollution in the HVAC system. However, it may not be effective for very small microorganisms and particles such as viruses. The UV light purifier helps complement filtration. It is also effective in getting rid of molds and pathogens in the HVAC system as well as drain pan, which could spread throughout a building.
