Indoor Air Quality Services in Salt Lake City Utah and Along the Wasatch Front
Our changing indoor environment:
A very long time ago when humans lived outdoors, breathing fresh air was an everyday occurrence. Mother Nature did a great job of keeping our air lean and safe to breathe. Thunder storms, lightning, and ultraviolet energy from the sun continually cleansed the outdoor air. Today however, our outdoor air is more polluted than ever and yet Mother Nature is still at work keeping the outdoor air as clean as possible.
The natural cleansing process which occurs outdoors does riot exist indoors. Over time we I humans have introduced a huge array of pollutants in to our homes from building materials, adhesives, cleaning chemicals, disinfectant sprays, deodorizers, insecticides, paints, stains and the list goes on! In our attempts to conserve energy, we have also tightened up our homes; locking in these contaminants and making the situation even worse. In a “tight” home, airborne chemicals can create toxic compounds that are simply re-circulated in the living space causing headaches, dizziness and other ailments The Environmental Protection Agency ~EP A) states that our indoor air environment can be 2 – 5 times and as much as 100 times worse than the worst outside air. Several respiratory illnesses such as, asthma and allergies are on the rise along with other ailments caused by contaminated indoor air; such as headaches, dizziness, depression, respiratory infections, throat and ear infections, colds and flu .. The National Center for Health Statistics (2001) reported an alarming increase of people suffering from severe allergies and asthma because of poor indoor air quality. A Harvard School of Public Health study revealed that out of 120 homes tested for toxic gases and compounds 100 of them had levels that exceeded safe standards across the nation.
