Indoor Air Quality Services near Elkton MD
No one used to talk about Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) that much before Covid-19. Today, more and more Americans are realizing the importance of improving your indoor air quality and understanding the impact of poor IAQ. With rising energy costs, people in our area are tightening their homes, preventing drafts and trapping air inside. While that’s good for the wallet, it can be bad for your health. You may be inhaling dust mites, pet dander, mold, mildew, formaldehyde, toluene, bacteria and carbon monoxide more now.
How is the quality of the air you breathe inside your home?
IAQ refers to the indoor air quality in and around buildings and more specifically how it relates to the health and comfort of the occupants. Your indoor air quality can be affected by a wide range of contaminants, and the use of ventilation and air filtration are the primary methods for improving it.
Indoor air can be too dry, too dusty or contain high levels of pollutants, causing health symptoms or aggravating existing health issues in certain individuals. In addition, poor indoor air quality means a less comfortable living environment.

Why is IAQ so important?
According to the EPA, the air inside is five times more polluted than outside air. The EPA has also listed air pollutants in the top five environmental risks to public health.
Poor IAQ increases the risk of asthma, pulmonary infections, allergies, headaches, nausea, fatigue and eye irritation. Since the average American spends up to 90% of his time indoors, most people are spending the majority of their day breathing harmful contaminants.
