All of us face a variety of risks to our health as we go about our day-to-day lives. Driving in cars, flying in planes, engaging in recreational activities, and being exposed to environmental pollutants all pose varying degrees of risk. Some risks are simply unavoidable. Some we choose to accept because to do otherwise would restrict our ability to lead our lives the way we want. And some are risks we might decide to avoid if we had the opportunity to make informed choices. Indoor air pollution is one risk that you can do something about.
At Heat Depot Home Solutions, we are committed to helping educate Colorado Springs residents about the health risks of poor indoor air quality and then helping you do something about it. That is why we are the area’s number one indoor air quality professionals.
In the last several years, a growing body of scientific evidence has indicated that the air within homes and other buildings can be more seriously polluted than the outdoor air in even the largest and most industrialized cities. Other research indicates that people spend approximately 90 percent of their time indoors. Thus, for many people, the risks to health may be greater due to exposure to air pollution indoors than outdoors.
Carbon Monoxide Risks for Homes
What Causes Indoor Air Problems?
- Indoor pollution sources that release gases or particles into the air (cooking, cleaning products, paint, etc.)
- Inadequate ventilation or circulating pollutants throughout the building caused by clogged ducts and vents can increase indoor pollutant levels.
- High temperature and humidity levels can also increase concentrations of some pollutants.
