Houston, TX (PRWEB) March 18, 2014
According to the American Lung Association “poor indoor air quality can cause or contribute to the development of infections, lung cancer, and chronic lung diseases such as asthma. In addition, it can cause headaches, dry eyes, nasal congestion, nausea and fatigue.”
As Houston’s provider for Indoor Air Quality Control, TakeAir Duct and Carpet Cleaning Specialists is pushing the envelope to keep Houston’s residents safe, healthy and aware. TakeAir is introducing Indoor Air Quality Testing, a new innovative service that identifies the issue of indoor air pollution.
TakeAir encourages everyone to have indoor air quality testing conducted before purchasing a new home, moving into a new apartment, or moving a business into a new location. If people are experiencing frequent illnesses or symptoms, or are susceptible to exposure to contaminants, they should get their property tested.

Furthermore, the Texas Department of State Health Services states that, “scientific evidence has indicated that air within homes and buildings is 2 to 5 times more polluted than the outdoor air and in some cases 1,000 times more polluted. In this day and age people are spending 95 % more time indoors therefore exposing themselves in extended amounts of time to concentrated pollutants in turn affecting health by either aggravating existing illnesses or causing respiratory illnesses, cardiovascular diseases and even cancer."
Typical pollutants found in Texas homes are tobacco smoke (by past occupants or current), biological such as bacteria, mold and mildew, viruses, animal dander, pollen, dust mites, and many more. These are more likely to be a problem in buildings with high humidity or water damage, both of which are common occurrences in the Greater Houston Area.
Many other pollutants are most commonly found in homes or buildings that are 10-30+ years and can severely affect those who spend long periods of times in these locations. Hence, those whom are most susceptible to develop symptoms are newborns/babies, young children, the elderly, people with respiratory illnesses and allergies, the bedridden, people with cardiovascular diseases, those recuperating or undergoing cancer treatments, pregnant women, or those with weak immune systems.
