Safeguarding Your Health
Studies have shown that the air we breathe has a dramatic impact on our health. The American Heart Association believes that environmental contaminants can have an inflammatory effect on your heart, leading to possible chronic conditions. For those already suffering from health concerns, outdoor air pollution can increase the risk of complications, with doctors noting a higher incidence of hospitalization when smog levels are unusually high. This evidence isn’t just bad news for your heart; additional evidence suggests a link to increased breast cancer from smog and other air pollutants.
Why Testing Matters
While we collectively work together to fight outdoor air pollution, you can actively do something to combat indoor air pollution in your home and workplace. A variety of pollutants and cancer causing agents may be affecting the quality of your air, and the solution might be something as simple as proper ventilation. Many times, the pollutants are odorless and go completely undetected. Wouldn’t it be worth your peace of mind to have air quality testing done? With over 20 years of experience in this industry, you can be confident that Benchmark Environmental Engineering will help with indoor air quality management, keeping the air you breathe free of toxins.
Types of Pollution
How is air pollution caused? What specific pollutants should you be concerned about in my home or workplace? These are the kinds of questions we want to answer for you! Air pollution is caused by burning fossil fuels, mining and factories, farming, and chemicals from cleaning products, paint, and many other sources. Some of the top offenders include:
- Smog – a combination of emissions from vehicles and factories, common in urban areas
- Particles – such as smoke, vapors, and aerosols
- Chemicals – cleaning products, paint, pesticides, and more
- Dust – sand, dirt, skin cells
- Pollen – especially prevalent in the spring when trees and flowers are blooming
- Mold Spores – common any time of the year, but more frequent in the fall
