Attention homeowners in the greater Madison area interested in improving your home’s air quality:

Research has shown that the quality of indoor air can be worse than that of outdoor air. Many homes are built or remodeled more tightly, without regard to the factors that assure fresh and healthy indoor air. Our homes today contain many furnishings, appliances and products that can affect indoor air quality.

Did you know:

• Indoor air quality can be worse than that of outdoor air.
• Problems can arise from moisture, insects, pets, appliances, radon, smoke, and more.
• Effects range from minor annoyances to major health risks.
• Remedies include ventilation, cleaning, moisture control, inspections, and more.
• VOC (volatile organic compounds) ie., kitchen cabinetry, new carpet, paint, and other solvents.
• Includes cleaning supplies, pesticides, and chemicals that may be stored in your home, garage and/or basement.

Signs of indoor air quality problems include:

• Unusual and noticeable odors.
• Stale or stuffy air.
• Noticeable lack of air movement.
• Dirty or faulty central heating or air conditioning equipment.
• Damaged flue pipes or chimneys.
• Unvented combustion air sources for fossil fuel appliances.
• Excessive humidity.
• Presence of molds and mildew.
• Feeling noticeably healthier outside.
• Health reaction after remodeling, weatherizing, using new furniture, using household and hobby products, or moving into a new home.

Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors:

• Install a smoke detector in each bedroom or in the adjacent hallway.
• If you have gas or other fossil fuel appliances install carbon monoxide detectors.
