Factors Affecting Indoor Air Quality

Many factors can affect your indoor air quality in Charleston. Here are just a few of them:

  • Mold. We’ll perform extensive mold testing to see where your mold is growing and what types you have. We’ll test surfaces as well as your indoor air quality to find out whether or not your mold has sent out airborne spores.
  • Mildew. If you have tried and tried to scrub away that mildew and haven’t had much luck, we’ll figure out what is causing it and why it keeps coming back. If you have mold, there’s a good chance you have mildew, too, though mildew is not usually as much of a health hazard as mold.
  • Pollen. We’ll test for pollen in your air as well as in your air ducts. Sometimes, ducts suck in pollen, then distribute it throughout your home every time you use your HVAC system.

If we test your home and find that these are present, we’ll help you solve that problem. We’ll make sure your indoor air is clean, just the way you want it to be!

Solving Indoor Air Quality Problems

There are many ways to solve indoor air quality problems.

  • Pollen removal. This can involve cleaning out your crawl space. Air duct cleaning can also help with pollen removal.
  • Mold and mildew removal. We’ll clean your home to get rid of the existing mold and mildew. The mold removal process may be straightforward or it may involve making major changes to your home.
  • Mold and mildew prevention. We can suggest solutions like crawl space sealing to keep moisture out. This provides mold prevention and mildew prevention because they can only grow in moist environments.
  • Indoor air purification. We may be able to help you find filters that will eliminate mold, mildew, and pollen particulates from your air. This doesn’t solve the entire problem but it can help you breathe clean air fast.
