ORLANDO, FL, April 30, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Maintaining a high level of air quality in your home is essential for your health. Unfortunately, there are many threats to the quality of your home's circulating air. Orlando air conditioning service American Air & Heat wishes to explore these threats and offer steps you can take to prevent their presence.
The airborne contaminants found in your home can be classified as either biological or chemical. Biological contaminants are natural in their origin and are usually molds, dust mites, pollen, animal dander and bacteria. Chemical air contaminants are typically man-made, and they can be both gases and particulate matter.
Mold can grow on almost any surface within your home, but it likes damp areas best. It can be found in the ductwork of your Orlando HVAC system, on the coils of your air conditioner, on dirty air filters and in many more places. To prevent mold from growing, keep humidity levels in your home low and treat any mold you see immediately. Be sure to not just treat the mold spot; treat the material it is on as well.
Dust mites live everywhere in our homes. You can't eliminate them, but you can reduce their available environment.
"We recommend that you reduce the amount of carpeting in your home and launder sheets frequently to limit dust mite allergens in your air," says Matt Boni, President of American Air & Heat.
Formaldehyde, vinyl chloride, phthalates, styrene-butadiene latex and radon are common chemical threats to your indoor air quality. Several of these chemicals have been directly associated with an increased risk for cancer. Reduce these chemicals by extensively airing out your home whenever you bring in new furniture, new carpeting and new paint.
