This time of year is filled with parties, good food and fun, and friends and family. With colder temperatures outdoors, more people stay indoors for longer periods of time. If you are concerned about the quality of your indoor air, especially now that more people are spending more time in your home, consider this time of year the season of indoor air quality testing!
Having your indoor air quality tested on a regular basis is more important than you might realize. Although our outdoors are being polluted, it’s nothing compared to the air inside our own homes! Indoor air can often be worse than the air outside, no matter where you live. To find out just how much worse the air inside your home or office is, you’ll need to have your indoor air quality tested by professionals like ours at J Newton Cohen.
While indoor air quality is helpful for everyone, it is especially important for certain groups of people, such as those with compromised immune systems, breathing troubles like asthma or COPD, the elderly and new babies. These groups are particularly sensitive to the effects of breathing in this type of concentrated particulate pollution.
If you have been feeling sluggish, tired, or having trouble breathing lately, instead of turning to anti-histamines and extra sleep, perhaps you should also get your indoor air quality tested as well. If you would like to learn more about the importance of getting your indoor air quality tested, please give us a call here at J Newton Cohen today.
