Asthma Awareness Month

Matthew Stewart - Monday, May 13, 2013

If you’ve been outside at all in the past few weeks, you know the meaning of the word “allergies.” May is prime allergy time, and it also just happens to be Asthma Awareness Month too.

But the air inside your home can trigger plenty of allergies and asthma spells as well. Things like dust mites, mold, and fungus can make your head start to spin.

Don’t let these seasonal allergens get you down, especially if you’re already prone to asthma attacks. 72 Degrees can help in areas such as Air Filtration Systems, Duct Cleaning and Sealing, Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers, and your Carbon Monoxide Detector.

Contact us if you’re in need of any of these services, and don’t let asthma get the best of you this month (or any month).

Air Quality Awareness Week

Matthew Stewart - Thursday, May 02, 2013

It’s Air Quality Awareness Week, and that means it’s the perfect time to learn about why air quality is so important and what you can do to help make it better.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the two most common air pollutants in the U.S. are the ozone and particle pollution. Even though you can’t see pollution all the time, it has the potential to hazardously affect your health. And don’t be fooled — air pollution doesn’t just occur in big cities. It’s a rural problem too.

But, there are steps you can take to help improve air quality. You can start a School Flag Program, which improves air quality awareness. You can also take the time to think about how you personally might be able to lower your air pollution contribution. You can turn your lights off more, carpool to work, or even fill your gas tank during cooler hours in the summer.

The folks at 72 Degrees also want to help improve air quality especially in your home, whether new or old. We want to make sure your home isn’t locking in allergens or producing excessive moisture. Air duct cleaning and sealing can remove contaminants and keep your home’s air healthy.

Why Indoor Air Quality is Important

Matthew Stewart - Saturday, March 16, 2013

Spring is upon us, and with that often comes discomfort from allergies and air pollutants. You want to make sure that the quality of air inside your home is the best it can be. Believe it or not, air pollution indoors can often be higher than outdoors.

And don’t be fooled — new homes are at risk too. Air quality has deteriorated over the past few decades, mostly because of the way our homes are built. Air can’t escape homes easily, so pollutants and allergens get trapped inside. An Air Filtration System can help with this and reduce the amount of pollution inside your home.

Excessive moisture and humidity may also be a cause for concern due to mold and fungus that can develop over time. Spring allergies in particular can be set off by mold, which can harm your respiratory system. Mold can also set off an asthmatic attack in those afflicted with asthma.

One way to battle this is to let 72 Degrees conduct an air duct cleaning to get rid of contaminants that you and your family may be breathing and keep your home’s air safe and clean. From dust and pollen to mold and other debris, air ducts can be filled with nasty objects that contaminate your air. In addition, we will seal air ducts to prevent further contaminants from entering the system again.

Seasonal Fall Allergies Got You Down? Consider Your Ducts!

Matthew Stewart - Wednesday, September 07, 2011

Fall is fast approaching, meaning sneezes, sniffles, and those dreaded fall allergies. Ragweed, mold, and dust mites are all to blame. Since more of your time will be spent indoors, have you considered the indoor air quality in your home? Heating and air conditioning ducts are dark and damp places. This provides an excellent breeding ground for dust, mold, and fungus to flourish. Most furnace manufacturers recommend getting your furnace unit cleaned and inspected every year...but, what about your air ducts?
If you haven't had your ducts cleaned or it has been some time since you've had it done, ask a professional. After all, it's the air you and your family breathes! This is especially critical for those who suffer from seasonal allergies.

Girl Power - Teen Girl Wins Google's Science Award on Indoor Air Quality!

Matthew Stewart - Wednesday, August 10, 2011

Indoor air quality is something that is rarely ever considered in terms of asthma. Normally, most considerations are given to the outdoor environment. That's what prompted a gifted, young scientist to 'think outside the box' and consider the impact of indoor air quality on breathing.

Naomi Shah, 16, won her age group award with a project demonstrating ways to reduce reliance on asthma medication by improving indoor air quality in Google's first-ever science fair. This young scientist was awarded a $25,000 scholarship and internships at Google.

The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) ranks indoor air quality as one of the top five environmental dangers, ranking it as one of the leading health risks today. This is due to the construction materials used for newer energy efficency. These 'sealed tight' homes don't allow air to escape nor enter the home as they did 30 to 40 years ago. The data is concerning.
