Indoor Air Quality – Biloxi, MS
Why does indoor air quality matter?
Between sleeping, making meals and spending time with your family, you spend the majority of your day in your home. If your indoor air quality (IAQ) is poor, that means you spend the majority of your day breathing in contaminants. Here are some of the things most commonly found in indoor air here in Biloxi:
- Allergens: As pollen and pet dander become trapped in your indoor air, they endlessly recirculate through your air ducts. This can extend springtime misery to the indoors for the allergy sufferers in your family.
- Viruses: Homes with poor IAQ often are those where illnesses quickly spread to the entire family. That’s because airborne viruses are trapped in the home.
- Dust and Dirt: All that dust and dirt that accumulates on your furniture is also in your air. Trapped inside, it can aggravate health issues and make breathing harder for everyone in the family.
Poor air quality can often go unnoticed by homeowners. If you suspect your home’s IAQ isn’t what it should be or are simply interested in improving your IAQ as much as possible, have an air quality test done on your home’s air. Here’s how our testing process works:
Our IAQ expert will start by meeting with you to learn more about your home and if your family has anyone with breathing difficulties. We’ll then take samples and measurements of your indoor air. This will then be evaluated to determine what’s actually in your home’s air.
With the test results back, our tech will meet with you and discuss what they mean. We’ll have a suggested solution for every problem identified with your indoor air. For example, excessive pollen will require better filtration.
Our team can help implement air quality improvement solutions based on the results of your test. This can include installing filters, repairing air duct issues and adding dehumidifiers. With our indoor air quality treatment, you and your family will soon be breathing easier.
One proactive step you can take to keep your indoor air safe to breathe is changing your air filter on a regular basis. You should replace your air filter every two to three months, more if you have children, shedding pets or notice the filter is already dirty after a month. If you have a reusable air filter, be sure to wash it thoroughly. A clean air filter will not only help block contaminants from entering your indoor air but will also improve your overall energy efficiency.
