Indoor Air Quality: Is Your Home’s Air Safe?

 

Because most people spend more time inside their home than in the outdoors, indoor air quality is an important and often overlooked consideration for the general health of everyone in your household.

 

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that, depending on where you live, your indoor air is two to five times more polluted than outdoor air.

 

Improper ventilation can encourage the growth of mold behind wallpaper and drywall.


You don't have to be the victim of flooding to have a mold problem in your home. A leaky window, an improperly vented bathroom or even a pipe with faulty insulation can cause the notorious fungus to thrive in your home.

 

While not everyone experiences physical symptoms associated with mold problems, those who do can really suffer when it enters the home environment.

 

Mold often shows itself in obvious ways like discolorations, spots of spores or even as bubbles in wallpaper or drywall.

 

But if someone in your home begins to feel sick while inside the house and better when not there, mold will probably be one of the first things to look for as a culprit because it is so common.

 

It can grow in 24 to 48 hours, and homes have lots of materials like Sheetrock and wallpaper that really encourage growth.

 

If you spot a mold problem, don't reach for the bleach: the EPA recommends using regular detergent for basic remediation. If you have a big problem, however, it's best to call in a professional to get it fixed correctly.
