Poor home ventilation is a catalyst for a variety of issues and illnesses, ranging from property damage right through to severe health complications. We have many clients who have utilised our services for mould eradication or sub floor ventilation and found that they are experiencing renewed health and comfort through better air quality.
When people think about air quality, they generally only tend to think about the temperature, or perhaps they may consider ventilation to some extent, yet indoor air quality is compromised by many factors. Humidity, poor air circulation as well as insufficient outdoor air intake have a profound effect on indoor air quality. This is only compounded by modern building materials and techniques, climate conditions and common indoor air contaminants such as chemicals, dust, mould, bacteria, gas and vapours.
We seek to educate and resolve the issue of air quality in homes and businesses so that the health and wellbeing of Australians is not compromised in favour of convenience and superficial design factors.
Because many of us don’t think about the quality of air often, or we assume that outdoor air pollution is more of a threat, it is common for people only to seek solutions when experiencing extreme symptoms such as property damage or health issues.
Although often attributed to other reasons or overlooked, poor indoor air quality can cause the following symptoms:
• Dryness and irritation of the eyes, nose, throat and skin
• Headaches and fatigue
• Shortness of breath and symptoms of asthma
• Coughing, sneezing and congestion
• Nausea and dizziness
• Poor cognition and memory impairment
• Behavioural and mood changes
