Dust mites, allergens, and pollutants can become trapped in your air ducts and blown throughout your home. Things that you want out of your presence are now ending up back right where you didn’t want them. Even worse, these allergens are polluting your air.
Many of these allergens are made by a large buildup of plant spores, mold, smoke, and chemicals that are emitted into the air through your household chemicals (cleaning products). Though, there are other impurities that are in your air that you may not know about. Most of these impurities are known as Volatile Organic Compounds, or VOC’s.
The Webster’s Dictionary describes VOCs as “organic chemicals that have a high vapor pressure at ordinary room temperature.” These VOCs are toxic to your home due to their characteristics of low boiling points and high evaporation levels. Even in closets and under your sink, these VOCs have the potential to infect the air inside of your home and act as irritants.
“These pollutants can contribute to a wide variety of allergies, especially in children and the elderly.”
More than likely you have these impurities floating around in the air in your home. You can find out for sure by purchasing an at home air test. Like this one. These air test kits are simple and only take a week or so to get your results back to you.
