Indoor Air Quality Services in Des Moines, Iowa 

What Is IAQ and Why Does it Matter?

Indoor air quality (IAQ) refers to the overall health and cleanliness of the air inside a building. Poor IAQ can be the result of numerous factors such as building materials, cleaning supplies, local pollution, and improper ventilation. Your IAQ matters because it can affect the health and well-being of those that live, work, shop, dine, or meet inside your building. 

It can lead to a range of health issues, including:

  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Allergies
  • Respiratory problems

Because a variety of factors affect IAQ, there is no single solution for improving it. Instead, the best remedy for bad air is one that targets the things that are introducing or circulating irritating substances. On this page, we have offered information about what contributes to your IAQ and how we approach improving indoor environments. After years of experience, we know what works when it comes to IAQ. If you are interested in knowing what is affecting yours and how we can help, connect with us today.

Maintenance Plans

One of the smartest HVAC decisions you can make is to invest in regular maintenace.

24/7 Emergency Commercial Services

While the three sections below detail ways our professional team can help improve your IAQ, there are many everyday things you can do as well. To start, regularly dusting and cleaning your spaces is a simple way to keep your air healthy—and you are likely already doing it! Additionally, opening windows and doors on days that are at a comfortable temperature, using cleaning products that do not have fragrances, and getting a variety of indoor plants are all ways that you can enhance your IAQ. 

How Ductwork Affects IAQ 

Your home or business’s ductwork is an important component of your HVAC system, as it helps circulate air. Ductwork that has not been maintained can lead to a variety of IAQ issues. 

These include the circulation and accumulation of:

  • Dust
  • Vehicle exhaust
  • Outdoor allergens
  • Other fine particulate matter or chemicals

Leaky ducts in your attic, basement, and crawl space can also allow unfiltered air into circulation. To prevent these issues from occurring, it is important to seek regular maintenance for your HVAC system that involves checking and changing filters or sealing leaky joints or holes in ducts. With our IAQ services in Des Moines, you can get just this.

Ventilation Is Key for Good Air 

Proper ventilation helps to remove moisture, pollutants, and stale air from a building, replacing it with fresh air. Without adequate ventilation, indoor pollutants can accumulate and cause the range of health problems we listed at the top of the page. To improve and maintain your IAQ, it is important to ensure you have an adequate ventilation system in place and that it is working well. Our professional team is your go-to for all things to do with ventilation. If yours needs some improvements, you can trust us to modify it or install upgrades to improve your circulation and IAQ.
