Importance of Healthy Indoor Air Quality

Are you prone to allergies? Does dust in your Chesterfield home easily irritate your eyes, nose, or throat? Does it take longer for you to recover from colds? Maybe you notice your air is dry or polluted and have trouble sleeping at night because of it.

If any of these describe how you feel inside your Missouri home, you may have poor indoor air quality (IAQ).

Improving your indoor air quality is critical because breathing fresh air provides many benefits to your health and wellbeing. Chesterfield Service can help you achieve this with the help of our high-quality products and services.

Why Is Improving Your Indoor Air Quality Important?

Just as you keep your kitchen clean by wiping down the counters and washing the dishes, it’s important you take the appropriate measures to have cleaner indoor air. Enhancing your indoor air quality is more important now than ever for several reasons:

  • You and your family spend more time at home now.A majority of your time is spent at home, and you certainly don’t want to breathe in pollutants, dust, or odors. Spending all of this time at home is reason enough to be sure the air you’re all breathing in is fresh and clean. You shouldn’t ever feel uncomfortable in your own home so don’t let your indoor air quality become poor.
  • Clean air can help you focus better.
    Whether you’re working from home or have school-age children studying at home, having clean air is essential. You may notice improved focus and better productivity as a result of optimal indoor air quality.

    In fact, the World Green Building Council (WorldGBC) reports cleaner air can improve productivity by as much as 11 percent. After all, who could focus with pollutants in the air and little ventilation inside? An unkept home can result in poor indoor air quality and prevent you from concentrating on what you need to get done, but keeping your home and the air in it clean will help you remain focused.
  • Poor indoor air quality can affect your health.
    Your health could suffer as a result of poor indoor air quality. If you breathe in pollutants regularly, you may aggravate asthma symptoms or upper respiratory conditions. Keeping the air in your Missouri home clean and contaminant-free could be the difference between breathing with ease and having trouble doing so.
  • Allergies can worsen during spring.
    If you struggle with allergies, you may notice symptoms are becoming more frequent now that spring is here. You may think you’re better off staying inside, but poor indoor air quality can exacerbate allergy symptoms too. Even more, your indoor air quality could be up to five times more polluted than the air is outside, according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA).

Indoor Air Quality Products

Enhancing your indoor air quality comes with benefits no matter what season it is. Be sure to change your air filters monthly, open up your windows for fresh air often, keep your home clean by dusting and vacuuming regularly, and for best results, use an indoor air quality product.

Chesterfield Service offers a wide variety of indoor air quality products to help you achieve better air quality, including:

  • iWave Air Purifier
    The iWave air purifier is an excellent air purification product designed to get rid of bacteria, viruses, mold spores, dander, dust, pollen and other types of contaminants. Our professionals can install the system for you so you can begin enjoying improved indoor air quality at home in no time.
  • Humidifiers
    An excellent way to ensure your indoor air quality is optimal at home is by adding a whole-house humidifier. Low humidity levels in the home can damage your furniture and, even worse, your health. You could experience severe allergy symptoms, sore throat, headaches, and respiratory problems. A humidifier will help keep the humidity levels in your Chesterfield home at an appropriate percentage so you can breathe in healthier air.
  • Dehumidifiers
    Just as your home could have low humidity levels, it could also have high levels of humidity. Homes with high humidity levels pose risks for mold and mildew growth, which is something nobody wants to breathe in. A whole-house dehumidifier can get your home feeling comfortable and safe.
