Good Indoor Air Quality is Very Important

What Causes Bad Indoor Air Quality?
Carbon Monoxide and Nitrogen Dioxide. Sources of these gasses:
- Un-flued gas heaters.
- Gas cooking.
- Wood/Charcoal fireplaces.
- Cigarette smoke.
- External emissions from trucks and cars.
The first three can be avoided by converting your home to electricity only. Invest in a quality Hepa air filter. Crucial if you live in a big city close to a busy road.
Excessive Mould Incubation caused by:
- Water damage to your property.
- Rooms in your home where ventilation or light are poor.
- Putting damp clothes back into drawers or cupboards.
Force yourself into best habits. Do not try to save money on water damage restoration. Make sure you house is as light and airy as possible. Invest in quality dehumidification and moisture absorbers.
Dust Mite Allergic Reactions caused by:
Dust mite droppings contain a protein that can cause an allergic reaction. Cleaning, dusting, vacuuming often will help. There are also treatments available that neutralises the protein for a few months.
Be Anal About Indoor Air Quality Improvement.
We may think our homes are healthy. Quite often outdoor air is much better for us.
Poor Indoor Air Quality can be a trigger of our allergies and health problems.
Mould spores and dust mite droppings are the worst culprits. Both mould and dust mites thrive in an environment of poor Indoor Air Quality where excess moisture is present.
Traditionally, dehumidifiers have not been that effective in controlling moisture in confined spaces in a home. It has meant that the indoor air quality could only be satisfactory in some areas of the home. IAQ Technologies offers a complete Indoor Air Quality testing service.
The key to preventing mould-causing asthma is to make sure that indoor moisture levels are kept under control throughout your house. It may be necessary to engage a builder or mould remedial specialist in serious cases of excess moisture/mould. Most of the time using common sense will be enough. Make sure that your rooms are ventilated regularly, and place PINGI moisture absorbing bags in confined areas of the home. PINGI products can be placed virtually anywhere in your home, but will be most effective in difficult to reach areas of your property.
The PINGI moisture absorbing bags require no refilling and PINGI can be recharged in a microwave oven in just a couple of minutes. These products are very effective in keeping confined areas in a home dry and will help improve indoor air quality.
