Indoor Air Quality Challenges in Maryland
Baltimore’s humid subtropical climate can wreak havoc on the indoor air quality of your home for several reasons. With long, hot summers and cool winters, there’s a lot of moisture in the air that can lead to an increased risk of mold growth. Mold can grow throughout your house, including on walls, ceilings, floors and even furniture. This means there can be elevated levels of allergens and irritants in the air, causing issues for people who suffer from allergies or respiratory problems.
Summer heat and humidity also means a preponderance of indoor air pollutants. These can include volatile organic compounds found in building materials, furniture and cleaning products. Depending on where you live in the city, the UHI and southeasterly bay breeze from the Chesapeake can have an impact on air quality, as well. If flooding occurs during intense summer storms, it can create sewer backups that also contribute to the number of indoor air pollutants.
If you run your air conditioner to beat the heat, this also may be making your indoor air quality worse. That’s because systems that aren’t properly maintained may be pushing more dust and particulates around without being filtered. All of these are reasons why it pays to have indoor air quality services you can depend on to help you and your family breathe easier.
The Advantages of Blue Dot’s Indoor Air Quality Solutions
When you contact Blue Dot to be your indoor air quality contractor, we leverage our expertise to help you find the ideal solution for your needs. For example, humidifier pads and water panels help maintain the optimal levels of moisture in the air, which can go a long way toward improving your air quality. This ensures you’ll maintain a good balance and avoid high humidity levels that cause mold growth or low moisture levels that lead to dry skin and respiratory issues.
Air cleaners and purification systems are other essentials when it comes to ensuring the quality of your air indoors. These work by removing pollutants and irritants from the air and filtering them. They come in many forms, including HEPA filters, UV air purifiers and ionizers. HEPA filters are very good at removing particles including dust, pollen, pet dander and smoke. UV purifiers use ultraviolet light to kill bacteria, viruses and other harmful microorganisms. Ionizers work by removing odors and freshening the air.
Another important aspect of indoor air quality is having the right level of ventilation. This means stagnant air can be cycled out of your home and replaced with fresh air from outside. Many homes are sealed against the elements, but this can result in ventilation problems that lead to stale, contaminated air. Installing ventilation systems can improve this situation.
Dehumidifiers remove excess moisture from the air that can lead to mold growth, further improving your indoor air quality. Having the right filters on your HVAC system also makes a difference. Pleated filters and media filters capture pollutants by trapping them in a porous material such as fiberglass or synthetic fabrics. Air Bear filters use a combination of mechanical and electrostatic filtration to remove particulates from the air, including pet dander, smoke and more.
Any of these solutions can make significant improvements in the quality of the air inside your home and result in better health and comfort for you and your family. Trust Blue Dot of Maryland to be your indoor air quality company of choice and start breathing easier in your home today.
