At M3 Environmental, we want to help Monterey area residents combat mold infestations and indoor air pollution by recognizing the signs of poor home and building ventilation. Poor ventilation can contribute to a host of health problems for families and employees. Let us help you clear the air.
Signs Of Inadequate Ventilation
As we strive to create more energy-efficient homes and buildings, we often end up with poor indoor ventilation. If too little outdoor air is getting inside your home or building, then you have poor ventilation. There are some key things that you may notice if your home or workplace has poor indoor ventilation.
- Significant & Rapid Build-Ups Of Dust
- Inconsistencies In Air Distribution & Temperature
- High Humidity Levels
- Growth Of Mold & Mildew
- Unpleasant Odors That Linger
Indoor Air Pollutants
When your office or home ventilation is inadequate most of what enters the home or building remains there. This poor ventilation allows pollutants to accumulate in the air over time. The exact types and amounts of any pollutant will vary from one building to another.
- Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)
- Pet Dander
- Dust & Dust Mites
- Mold Spores
- Carbon Monoxide
Risks To Your Health
Poor air quality at work or home can pose health problems for anyone that spends a significant amount of time there. Children, the elderly, and those with chronic health conditions are even more vulnerable to indoor air pollution.
Exposure to indoor pollutants can mimic cold or virus symptoms and exasperate allergies and asthma. If you consistently feel unwell when in a specific location and begin to improve after leaving then indoor air pollutant is a likely factor.
- Eye Irritation
- Sinus Congestion
- Sore Throat Or Cough
Suspect Poor Air Ventilation?
If you have reason to believe that the quality of the air in your home or business is unsafe, a thorough home or building inspection by a professional environmental consulting company is a prudent first step. We have the experience and equipment necessary to perform indoor air quality testing as well as mold testing in your home or business.
After testing and analysis of your air quality, we can identify any specific areas that need attention and formulate a remediation plan to address those needs.
