4 Signs of Poor Indoor Air Quality
If you are noticing any of the following issues in your home, you might have an indoor air quality problem that could be solved with one of our services or products:
Dust, dirt, pollen, and other pollutants are usually more concentrated in an enclosed area, such as a home, as opposed to outdoor spaces where the air is circulated and cleaned by nature. If you are struggling with allergy symptoms, you should call us to talk about ways to improve your Indoor Air Quality.
Mold & Mildew
Homes that are excessively high in humidity are prone to mold and mildew, especially those places lacking proper air filtration and circulation. If you notice musty fragrances or green and/or black spots on any of your surfaces (like around sinks, tubs, toilets, and other areas exposed to moisture), you should call us.
Skin Dryness or Irritation
Wondering why you have rashes, redness, or dry skin? If you are unable to find other potential causes, then it may be due to the poor quality of the air indoors. This is due to the concentration of pollutants present in the air. When bacteria and other air pollutants latch onto your skin, they cause dryness and block the flow of nutrients.
Strange or Unpleasant Smells
Certain types of smells can originate from mildew or mold growth, so they need to be addressed immediately. Other odors could arise from certain kinds of pest infestations, chemicals, decomposing materials, gases, dirt, dust, or other particles.

Breathe Cleaner Air in Franklin County & Surrounding Areas
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor air problems in the U.S. are the top five air quality problems. Common residential indoor pollutants include excessive moisture, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), combustion products, radon, pesticides, dust particles, viruses, and bacteria. All these affect human health, and the resulting odors, dampness, stale air, and stuffiness make a house less comfortable. Most control strategies help with gases and “particulates” like dust, pollen, and smoke particles. However, while filters of increasing sophistication can trap most nuisance and harmful particulates, there aren’t comparable removal strategies for gases. In some cases, activated charcoal and similar substances have been employed.
