When we think about air pollution, we generally think of factories and power plants spewing smoke and waste into the sky. The reality is much more insidious. EPA studies have shown that indoor levels of pollutants are up to five times higher than outdoor levels, and they’re not talking about industrial areas. They’re talking about homes and businesses.
On average, Americans spend over 80 percent of their time indoors and the majority of that indoor time at home. That means the quality of air in your home can have a huge impact on your health and quality of life, especially if you or someone in your family has asthma or another respiratory illness. If you have young children or elderly family members in your home, it’s especially important to make sure your indoor air is clean.
That’s where we come in. At Hurley & David, we’ve been helping Hampden County families breathe easier for over five decades. We understand a broad range of indoor air quality solutions that can suit any home, and as members of the Clean Indoor Air Alliance, we have the expertise needed to apply those solutions safely and effectively.
Before we can recommend the right air purification solutions for your home, we’ll need to understand exactly what is causing your IAQ issues. Our technicians will use a high-resolution infrared camera to look into the darkest places in your home, such as ducts and the interior of your furnace. This process helps us target the source of the problem, whether it’s pests, second-hand smoke, clogged ducts or something else entirely. Next, we’ll perform a source removal with a High Efficiency Particulate Air duct machine.
Finding a Long-Term Solution
Once your home has been cleaned out, it’s ready for a long-term air purification system that will keep your indoor air clean. Remember, most air purification systems only target particles, but toxic chemicals and microbes are at least as dangerous. Our professionally designed and installed systems can remove every source of IAQ issues, and the upshot for you is cleaner air for many years to come.
At Hurley & David, we’ve been taking care of our friends and neighbors in the Springfield area for over 50 years, and we know how important it is for you to breathe easily.
