Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is ranked as one of the top five environmental risks to human health.
Common symptoms of exposure to indoor air pollutants include fatigue, headaches, nausea, scratchy throat, nasal irritation, and respiratory problems. Allergies, asthma and chemical sensitivities are also on the rise. Airtight construction, designed to improve energy efficiency, permits less fresh air to enter the home so particles and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) build up over time. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) studies indicate levels for many pollutants may be two to five times higher indoors than outdoors.
Know Your Home’s IAQ
Cahill takes your health very seriously. That’s why we are now offering a groundbreaking method to test Indoor Air Quality (IAQ). We will install a small IAQ monitor in your home for three days. The monitor works by transmitting air quality data through a toll-free phone number to an independent, third-party lab. The resulting, easy-to-read reports help you decide on the right filtration, ventilation, and humidification solutions for your home.
