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.

Fall Weather Often Brings Fall Allergens
