Ventilation is key to combating problems such as asthma, hay fever and lung conditions.

The Dangers of Poor Indoor Air Quality

The Impact of Indoor Air On Asthma

You must monitor the quality of your indoor air, to ensure you create a safe environment in your building.  When harmful substances pollute your indoor air, it can cause a number of problems.

For example, asthma is one such problem. Asthma is a condition which affects the respiratory system of the human body. It can lead to the trachea tightening, causing the long pipe to become narrower. Also, asthma builds up phlegm and mucus in the pipe, making it harder to breathe.

How do asthma attacks occur? Asthma attacks occur when the airways are sensitive and inflamed due to breathing in harmful substances. For example, these substances include:

  • Dust
  • Tobacco smoke
  • Animal fur
  • Mould

After exposure to indoor air pollutants, symptoms of diseases such as asthma can worsen. Implementing indoor air quality solutions can help you create a safer environment.

However, there are more dangers. For example, air quality also has an impact on hay fever.

 

The Impact of Indoor Air On Hay Fever

Indoor allergens can also help to cause hay fever.

Hay fever occurs when the body’s immune system identifies harmless airborne substances as harmful to the body. The body’s immune system then creates antibodies to get rid of the substances it deems dangerous.

When you inhale an allergen, your immune system reacts and sends chemicals to the nasal passages, sinus, eyelids, and other areas.

The most common causes of hay fever are outdoor allergens – tree pollen, grass pollen, weed pollen and flower pollen. However, indoor allergens can also trigger hay fever.

In addition to hay fever and asthma, poor indoor air can lead to more problems such as:

  • Underlying Lung Conditions
  • Bronchitis
  • Emphysema

So, without a doubt, maintaining your indoor air quality is key.

How our Indoor Air Quality Solution Can Help

At Ductbusters, our ventilation systems can help remove indoor air pollutants from your building.

Firstly, ventilation filters the air that enters your building.  Then, it eliminates some of the harmful airborne substances. When you lower the amount of harmful substances in your indoor air, you lower the risk of breathing problems.

Furthermore, our ventilation systems can help to control your building’s airflow. This, in turn, helps to create a better quality of indoor air.

Thirdly, the ventilation system releases moisture into the air, adjusting humidity levels.

Dust mites can trigger asthma and hay fever. However, by reducing your humidity level, you can lower the level of dust mites in your building. This is because dust mites live in unclean and dusty environments, with high humidity.

Ventilation can lower the humidity and reduce the amount of dust mites.
