Indoor Air Quality in Oro Valley: Why It Matters & How We Help
Indoor air quality can sound like an abstract concept, but it’s a real measurement of how polluted your air is. Are you not feeling well in your home? Fatigue, headaches or sneezing that go away when you are away from home? At Green Home Solutions, we help homeowners in Oro Valley identify, treat, and prevent indoor air quality issues. We can always improve the air you breathe.
Let’s look at why that matters, and how we can make a difference.
Three Reasons Why Indoor Air Quality Matters
Indoor air quality affects us all. Growing research shows that indoor environments have much higher concentrations of pollutants than outdoor spaces. Homes are being built with higher levels of insulation and less outside air circulation. Finding and treating contaminants like moisture, mold, odors, and other issues are crucial. Here’s why:
- We spend a lot of time indoors. Whether we’re sleeping, working, studying, or spending time with family, most people are indoors for about 90% of the year. A lot of that indoor time is spent at home. Most people’s exposure to pollution isn’t from being outside, it’s from their own homes and other indoor environments. Improving air quality is crucial to reducing pollutants in the air.
- Indoor environments get polluted fast. Unlike outdoor spaces, where air gets circulated and dispersed very quickly, indoor environments keep air sealed in. When new contaminants enter your space, it’s easier for them to stay there. Many everyday activities release pollutants—from cooking to cleaning, hobbies, showering, and more. It’s no surprise that indoor environments can be so highly polluted.
- It affects our wellbeing. Many of us understand that smog, wildfire smoke, and other sources of outdoor pollution can have a serious effect on our health and wellbeing. But that’s true for indoor pollution, too. These effects can be short-term, like headaches or congestion, or longer-lasting, like cardiovascular conditions. Clean indoor air makes a huge difference to everyone’s daily quality of life.
