Common sources of poor Indoor Air Quality

Most odors are from the presence of organic chemical substances suspended in the air that come from viruses, bacteria, mold, mildew, pet dander and odor, allergens, smoking odors, and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s).

First, second, and yes third hand smoke and residue, VOC's, mold, bacteria continually build up in enclosed spaces and form layers upon layers of microscopic toxins that cover virtually EVERY SURFACE in your home, office, or vehicle. Molds & mildew are the number one causes of allergic symptoms. 

Allergens are natural particles such as dust mites, pet dander, and pollen, which irritate, inflame and promote respiratory illness. An allergen is a type of antigen that produces an abnormally vigorous immune response in which the immune system fights off a perceived threat that would otherwise be harmless to the body. Such reactions are called allergies.

Airborne bacteria and viruses can lead to a wide range of ailments and infections, and thrive in damp, stale environments. Without ventilation, these bacteria continue to breed.

Toxic chemicals are the condensation and buildup of vapors from common household products such as paint, pesticides, cleaners, solvents, adhesives and aerosols that can be highly toxic if not properly ventilated from the home.

Mold is a fungus, which needs moisture to exist, that gradually destroys the things it grows on. Spores released by mold are highly toxic and can cause serious— and even terminal—health complications.

Moisture is the number-one problem in air quality control. Uncontrolled moisture promotes mold growth, feeds thriving bacteria and causes structural damage to the home.
