What’s in the air you’re breathing? That’s the question that Roanoke homeowners need to be asking themselves.
Indoor air quality is important to your health. It’s not just about dust and pet dander setting off allergies, either. From mold to radon to volatile organic chemicals, there are many pollutants that can be found in the home. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency doesn’t mince words about the possible long-term effects of polluted indoor air:
Other health effects may show up either years after exposure has occurred or only after long or repeated periods of exposure. These effects, which include some respiratory diseases, heart disease and cancer, can be severely debilitating or fatal. It is prudent to try to improve the indoor air quality in your home even if symptoms are not noticeable.
Improving Air Quality
Worried about the air quality in your home? Your friends at Southern Trust can help. We offer a range of affordable air quality solutions to help keep your family safe:
- HEPA filters: A high-energy particulate air filter (HEPA) is designed to screen out almost 100 percent of airborne particles from your home, including those that are far too small to be caught by ordinary filters.
- Humidity control: Mold and mildew love humid, wet environments. To prevent mold growth, installing humidity control systems help keep the air drier, more comfortable, and cleaner.
- Germicide: Germicidal ultraviolet lamps can be directly installed in your HVAC system, sterilizing the air as it enters the home.
- Air purification: Want more protection than just a filter? Southern Trust offers air purification systems that can fully filter indoor air pollutants.
In addition to these services, if you want your ducts cleaned, we can help with that, too. Contact Southern Trust today at (540) 343-4348 or visit www.southerntrusthomeservices.com.
