Residential Indoor Air Quality FAQs

On average, people are said to spend at least 90% of their time indoors. With the rising popularity of home deliveries and remote working, you may be spending a significant chunk of that time within the confines of your home. Maintaining the right indoor air quality (IAQ) is essential for your well-being and comfort. Lightspeed Restoration offers many services that can help you preserve good IAQ. Below we answer frequently asked questions from many property owners.

IAQ is a measure of the air conditions inside buildings and their surroundings concerning the comfort and health of the occupants.

When the air has high levels of particulate matter from mold, dust, and smoke or unusual humidity levels and odors in your home, you have a poor IAQ situation. 

Air quality issues can develop without showing visible signs. One way to establish the actual state of the air conditions within your home is by measuring the levels of chemical agents, volatile organic compounds, and natural gasses like radon and carbon dioxide, which are the most common air pollutants in residential properties. 

Our Lightspeed Restoration team can evaluate your home with portable devices to determine whether there are IAQ issues.

Air quality in your home changes from time to time depending on the season and activities in or around the home. Also, incidents such as fires, flooding, and structural damage release particles, moisture, or chemicals, thus affecting air quality.

Proper house maintenance routines go a long way in maintaining high-quality air conditions within indoor areas of your home by removing pollutants. Controlling humidity levels is also important in maintaining good IAQ. 

It all depends on what pollutant you are dealing with. Lightspeed Restoration offers services that can help positively impact your IAQ, such as:

  • Mold removal and remediation
  • Moisture control
  • Air duct cleaning
  • Odor management 

Information about air quality may be hard to come by or alarming. Lightspeed Restoration is a reliable source if you have any concerns about IAQ. Our caring customer service team is available 24/7 to schedule technicians to help resolve air quality issues.
