How to Improve IAQ in Lake St. Louis
There are many different ways to improve IAQ in your home. Our team will inspect and assess each home’s situation before making any recommendations. Some methods will be more effective than others depending on the level and type of pollutants and contaminants that are found in the air supply.
Some of the more popular and common methods for improving IAQ include:
- Fixing air scrubbers to existing ductwork
- Installing humidity control measures and tools
- Improving overall air filtration
- Installing germicidal UV lights
- Improving overall ventilation
Each method is used to treat a different type of contaminant. Germicidal lights, for example, produce ultraviolet C light that disrupts DNA base pairing. This is the best tool to eliminate bacteria, viruses and protozoa; however, it’s not as effective at removing dust and pollen. On the other hand, filtration systems may be more effective against dirt, dust and pollen. It’s not as effective in removing bacteria and viruses from the air.
