While outdoor air quality is a major factor for allergy sufferers, indoor air quality can also have a big impact on those with allergies. Most of us spend a large majority of our time indoors – as much as 90% – so if the quality of the air inside where you spend so much time is polluted, your allergies are going to be worse.
The problem with indoor air is that it is hard to keep fresh and clean because we’re in Maine and must keep things closed up much of the year. Also, many homes and buildings have very poor air circulation. Unless you are intentionally taking steps to circulate and clean the indoor air you are breathing, chances are it’s pretty polluted! Yikes!
How can you help reduce your allergy problems, no matter the time of year? Take some important steps to improve your indoor air quality:
HVAC systems (heating and cooling) use filters to remove particles from the air circulating in your house. Some filters are better than others because they can remove smaller particles. However, even high-quality filters cannot trap particles that are smaller than 5 microns in size. That is the size the American Lung Association says will pass through our lungs. Unfortunately, 98% of all indoor air particles are less than 1 micron in size.
Gelinas is committed to helping homeowners and businesses create the best indoor environment for you and your family using air and surface cleaning technology. Our indoor air quality solutions can remove even the smallest particles from the air. These indoor air quality products make a huge difference in the lives of those with respiratory problems and illnesses such as allergies, asthma, COPD, and other health problems.
