Protect Your Oak Ridge, NJ Home's Environment With Indoor Air Quality Services
Depending on who you ask, the air in your home can be anywhere from five times to 100 times more polluted than the air outside. Now, we'll grant you that is quite a range - but honestly, even if it's just twice as polluted, that's still unacceptable - because in your home, you have some say in the matter. With the indoor air quality services available from Climate Plus, you can exert your will over your home's environment and keep you and your family safe and healthy.
There are many systems we can install in your home to help improve its overall air quality, each one geared toward giving you clean, fresh air to breathe and keeping the evils of the air outside right where it belongs - out. If you've got dust everywhere, allergies that just won't quit or a cough that won't go away, it's imperative you give us a call at (973) 838-3200 and truly "clear the air."
Indoor air quality can be poor due to several problems. Common reasons include inadequate ventilation, which traps pollutants indoors; indoor sources of pollution like tobacco smoke, household cleaners, and cooking fumes; allergens like pet dander, dust mites, and mold spores; and outdoor pollutants that enter through open windows and doors. Poorly maintained HVAC systems can also contribute to indoor air quality issues. To improve indoor air quality, ensure proper ventilation, maintain HVAC systems, use air purifiers or filters, and minimize indoor pollutants through regular cleaning and proper ventilation practices.
Indoor air quality can be tested through various methods. One common approach is using indoor air quality monitors that measure pollutants like particulate matter, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), carbon dioxide (CO2), and humidity levels. Additionally, professional air quality testing services can perform comprehensive assessments to identify specific pollutants like mold, radon, or formaldehyde. Home test kits are also available for some pollutants, but professional testing is more accurate. Analyzing test results can help identify sources of indoor air pollution and guide improvements through ventilation, air purifiers, and reducing pollutant sources.
What Kind Of Pollution Is In My Home?
What kind of pollution isn't in your home? Everything outside eventually makes its way in - what's important is what happens to it during the trip. When you add in the pollution a family can produce - dust, bacteria, animal dander and the explosive results of Dad's prize-winning pork roll - into that enclosed space and it's easy to see how things can be more polluted inside than out. Here are some of the usual suspects:
That's just a sampling. Our bodies are built to breathe a very specific mix of nitrogen, argon and most importantly, oxygen. Anything else can potentially impact our health. The evidence is clear - caring for your home's indoor air quality is one of the most important things you can do.
How Do You Improve Indoor Air Quality?
We know all of the above sounds scary, but don't you worry - we've got this. One of the first things we can do is help you with regular maintenance of your HVAC systems - the better it's maintained, the cleaner the air it puts into your home. Those air filters you need to change every month are there for a reason! But that's just the start:
The aforementioned filters are good for basic air cleaning, but if you really want to up your game, whole home air filtration is the answer. There are filters powerful enough they not only keep out dust and dander - they can even snag bacteria and viruses, right out of the air.
Sci-Fi laser weapons are awesome, right? Well, UV lights aren't quite the same thing - but they're close. UV radiation is capable of deactivating organic allergens like bacteria and viruses or breaking down mold (the same way it gives you sunburn). Adding UV light purification to your system gives you a front-line defense against unhealthy invaders.
Humidifiers & Dehumidifiers
Too much water in the air and you encourage the growth of mildew, mold and bacteria and risk damaging your walls, floors and furniture. Not enough and you wind up with dry eyes, scratchy throats and general discomfort. Our whole home humidifiers and dehumidifiers help you achieve that perfect sweet spot between the two.
