Is Your Home Healthy?

When it comes to understanding poor indoor air quality, no one knows Arizona’s homes better than Orangutan Home Services. Even with the wealth of information available to show that your house may be making you sick, some families don’t understand just how important indoor air quality can be. The EPA ranks indoor air pollution among the top five environmental risks to public health. Their studies show that indoor levels of many pollutants may be 2 to 5 times worse than outdoor air. Some showed up to 100 times worse!

With nearly 1 in 13 school age children suffering from Asthma, and more than 15 Million Americans who suffer from its effects, the quality of the air you breathe is more important than ever. Because they breathe faster than adults, children inhale 50% more air per pound of body weight and are especially sensitive to air quality problems.

Harvard School of Public Health reported toxic levels of gasses and compounds in 100% of the homes they tested. These bacteria, 

viruses and toxic gases can make us feel sick and increase the spread of illness. According to a study by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, indoor air contaminants are responsible for half of all illnesses. With study after study showing the same information, we at Orangutan Home Services decided to do something about it.
