Does the air in your home feel damp? Is your basement prone to flooding? Excess moisture is a breeding ground for mold spores that can contribute to poor air quality, asthma, and allergy symptoms. When your home is built by an Indoor airPLUS partner, it is superiorly crafted with excellent indoor air quality and consumer health in mind.
Let’s talk about how the experts at Robin Ford Building and Remodeling, Inc. can help you breathe easier this season, and for years to come, by building your Indoor airPLUS home.
What is an Indoor airPLUS Home?
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) promotes improved indoor air quality through their increasingly popular Indoor airPLUS Program. An Indoor airPLUS home is one that has undergone an extensive verification process and met the EPA’s strict guidelines for minimizing poor indoor air quality. These certified homes are mindfully constructed with healthy building materials and radon-resistance to provide residents with an extra layer of protection from mold, moisture, pests, and other harmful pollutants.
Indoor airPLUS Homes Reduce Your Risk of Cancer
Radon is a colorless, tasteless, cancer-causing radioactive gas. The EPA estimates that roughly 21,000 lung cancer deaths in the U.S. each year are a result of radon exposure. Are you shocked to find out that the EPA also estimated that as many as 8 million homes throughout the U.S. currently test positive for elevated levels of radon? Indoor airPLUS homes are constructed with priceless radon-resistance, reducing your risk of elevated exposure and lung cancer.
Indoor airPLUS Homes Minimize the Impact of Allergy Season
Spring is in the air! Unfortunately, that means that a vast amount of allergens are, too. As the weather warms up, severe allergy sufferers in Maryland are struggling to find relief from record-high pollen counts and other airborne allergens. Poor air quality within your home can contribute to headache, fatigue, watery eyes, sinus congestion, coughing, allergies, and more. If you live in an older home with poor air quality or excess moisture, the effect of these symptoms can become unbearable. The site and foundation of Indoor airPLUS homes are water-managed for ultimate moisture control, minimizing the impact of allergy season and protecting your investment from future damages.
