How is Your Indoor Air Quality?
Indoor air quality can vary for many different reasons depending on your climate and geographical location. If you are concerned about your indoor air quality there are a few things you can do to improve the situation.
A dirty ventilation system is most likely the main reason causing bad indoor air quality. A ventilation system is also known as an HVAC system (which stands for heating, ventilation and air conditioning) and helps air circulate through the home or business. The HVAC is responsible for moving all the air throughout your building whether it’s for heating or cooling purposes. As all of the air constantly moves through a structure it collects pollutants that can build up over time. If your HVAC system has been running for a while with little to no attention placed on it could be circulating one or more of the following: Dust, Pollen, Odors, Dirt or other contaminants.
Make sure to pay attention to your HVAC system and if you start to notice worse air quality, then it should be a priority to get it inspected and cleaned. SERVPRO of Edmonds inspects HVAC and Duct systems on a regular basis and has seen it all!

If it is necessary to clean then our SERVPRO of Edmonds team can handle it and you will notice an immediate increase in energy efficiency, elimination of odors and reduce potential microbial growth.
