Should I worry about my indoor air quality?

Many New Jersey homeowners have read about potential problems with indoor air quality. The Environmental Protection Association (EPA) has conducted formal research studies on both indoor and outdoor air quality. In some situations, indoor air quality in a home can be lower than the quality of the air outside. There are numerous indoor air quality products available that will help clean up the air in your home. You can also take other measures, including:

 

  • HVAC maintenance. This will allow you to spot problems like mold and bacterial growth, which can contaminate your indoor air.
  • Air duct cleaning. Along with cleaning or replacing your filters, you should occasionally have your ducts cleaned to remove built-up dust and dirt.

 

Avoid indoor smoking. Smoking indoors causes many air quality problems.
