October Is Indoor Air Quality Awareness Month

The focus of an article published on a Kansas news website was indoor air quality, and October is Indoor Air Quality Awareness Month. While the open plains of Kansas are great for helping people enjoy the clean air, it’s also important that we focus on the quality of the air inside of our homes. One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning® of the Bay Area is here to help Santa Rosa homeowners have the cleanest, freshest air possible flowing inside of their homes.

Mold And Mildew Problems

An out of the ordinary season of rain and flooding caused many homeowners in the Kansas area to be concerned about mold and mildew growing and spreading in their homes. Even though there is no inexpensive way to test for mold, if you happen to smell it or see it, then chances are good that you have it.

By improving your home’s indoor air quality, you reduce your chances of having mildew and mold in your home. If you ever do discover that you have a mold problem in your home, you’ll want to clean the area with water and soap before using a diluted bleach solution to disinfect it.

Indoor Air Contaminants

Besides mold, homeowners also have to worry about radon, which is another indoor air quality contaminant to beware of both in Kansas and in the California area. The only way to tell whether or not you have radon in your home is to buy a test kit, which usually cost less than ten dollars.
