The climate in Lake Zurich, Illinois can change in the blink of an eye. One minute it’s mild and breezy and in a few short hours, the temperatures have dropped below freesing. It’s only natural to head indoors when the weather outside is less than ideal. However, without proper maintenance, the air in your home could be more contaminated than the air outside! Poor indoor air quality can negatively affect the health of you and your family, so it’s important to keep the air as clean as possible.

Better Indoor Air Quality

Believe it or not, even the cleanest of homes still have many microscopic pollutants, such as dust mites, dust and pet dander floating in the air. Air purifiers can eliminate up to 99 percent of contaminants found inside your home. Removing these offending agents may even prevent respiratory problems and allergic symptoms, improving your overall health. In addition, installation of UV light can kill germs, bacteria and mold spores, which are known to cause headaches, sore throats and respiratory infections in otherwise healthy individuals. Family members suffering from asthma are also at a higher risk for respiratory complications when the indoor air isn’t clean.

Increased Levels of Oxygen

Have you ever felt as if the air inside your home is stale? Indoor air has higher levels of oxygen when it is fresh and clean. If the air inside your home is contaminated, your body has to work harder to get the oxygen that it needs. But when the air quality is good, it can boost your immune system, ward off asthmatic flares and even aid in digestion!

From air purifiers to UV lights, there are many ways you can improve the air quality inside your home. For more information about improving indoor air quality, contact us today at 847-719-8442.
