Regularly checking the air quality of your home is essential to ensure that you live in a clean and healthy environment, and therefore to preserve the health of all occupants. At Ventilo Exp’Air, we can handle just this type of analysis.

Pourquoi faut-il faire vérifier la qualité de l’air de sa demeure ?

We spend much of our time at home, especially at night when it is usually impossible to open the doors and windows. However, studies show that in most cases, indoor air is much more polluted than outdoor air. Here are the reasons why:

  • Les produits ménagers que nous utilisons ainsi que les peintures ou matériaux contiennent des contaminants volatils qui s’accumulent dans l’air au fil de temps.
  • L’utilisation courante d’eau, notamment pendant la douche, la lessive, le nettoyage de sol ou encore la vaisselle augmente le taux d’humidité de l’air et peut être à l’origine de la formation de moisissures sur le long terme dans le cas où la maison est mal aérée.
  • Des poussières et autres particules polluantes peuvent s’accumuler sur les meubles ou encore dans l’air si la ventilation est défaillante ou insuffisante.

All this pollution to which we are exposed daily can lead to health problems of varying degrees of severity in the short and long term. Instant allergic reactions such as itching, endless sneezing, sore throat or skin irritation occur in some people immediately upon contact with the contaminants, while in others the damage occurs after several months or years. In general, air pollution leads to respiratory and cardiovascular diseases as well as certain cancers of the respiratory tract.

Therefore, we recommend that you have your home’s air quality checked to ensure that it is safe for your health.

Que faut-il faire après la vérification de la qualité de l’air ?
