We all know that feeling when you walk into a room and it just doesn’t seem quite right. Maybe the air is stale, or there’s a weird smell. Whatever the case may be, it’s not pleasant. And it’s not good for your health either.
Maybe you’ve already done a lot to try and improve the air quality in your home. You open a window or two to let in clean air daily, clean regularly to get rid of pet dander, use your exhaust fans, and clean your air conditioning filters. You’re left scratching your head wondering why the fresh air seems to disappear so fast and the old, musty air returns.
CAUSES OF POOR INDOOR AIR
Indoor pollutants can also adversely affect the quality of the air. The most common causes of indoor air pollution are tobacco smoke, wood-burning heaters, mould and unflued gas heaters.
Unflued gas heaters produce carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide. It is vital that you have a carbon monoxide detector in your home and ensure proper use and maintenance of the heater. Or skip the hassle and replace your unflued gas heaters or wood-burning heaters with an electric heater. The easiest way to eliminate tobacco smoke is to quit smoking or commit to only smoking outdoors far from your home.
Another option to improving air the air quality in your home is regularly clean your ventilation systems as one of the most common causes of poor indoor air quality is dirty vents and ducts. Another culprit? A dirty roof. Yep, that’s right – your roof can have a big impact on the quality of air in your home.
So, what’s the connection between roofs and indoor air quality? Well, your roof is constantly exposed to the elements – rain, wind, sun, snow, and more. Over time, all of that exposure can lead to a build-up of dirt, debris, and even mould.
And when your roof is dirty, it can’t do its job properly. It’s not able to protect your home from the elements as effectively, which means that all of that dirt, debris, and mold can end up inside your home. And that’s not good for anyone’s health.
