Is your basement prone to flooding? Does the air in your house feel damp? Excess moisture is a breeding environment for mold spores that can contribute to low air quality, asthma, and allergy symptoms. When you build your custom Indoor airPLUS home, there is excellent indoor air quality and consumer health. Fortunately, the experts at Robin Ford Building and Remodeling, Inc. can assist you in breathing easier for years.
Understanding an Indoor airPlus Home
The EPA, or U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, promotes indoor air quality via its increasingly popular Indoor airPLUS Program. An Indoor airPLUS home is undergoing an extensive verification process. Also, it meets the EPA’s rigid guidelines for reducing poor indoor air quality. Plus, these certified homes are carefully made with healthy building materials with additional protection from moisture, mold, pests, and other harmful pollutants.
Minimize Your Risk of Cancer
Furthermore, Indoor airPLUS-qualified homes have features that minimize contaminants prevalently linked with poor indoor air quality. This includes moisture, carbon monoxide, toxic chemicals, and radon. Radon is a tasteless, colorless, cancer-causing radioactive gas that may be fatal to those exposed to it. Fortunately, your Indoor airPLUS home is built with priceless radon resistance, minimizing your risk of lung cancer and elevated exposure.
Indoor airPLUS Homes Reduce Allergy Effects
When spring arrives in Maryland, that signifies that several amounts of allergens also come. As the weather warms up in Maryland, severe allergy sufferers struggle to find relief from airborne allergens. So, poor air quality within your home may contribute to fatigue, headache, sinus congestion, watery eyes, allergies, coughing, and more.
Moreover, if you reside in an older home with excess moisture or poor air quality, the effect of these symptoms can be unbearable. Lastly, the foundation and site of Indoor airPLUS homes are water-managed for significant moisture control. It also reduces the impact of allergy season and protects your investment from potential damage.
