Allergies & Asthma Caused by Poor Indoor Air QualityTERS indoor air quality services are available for company buildings, schools, and private homes. Our team of highly trained indoor air experts test for air contaminants that may be causing allergies and asthma, and provide building restoration services such as mold identification, mold removal, air duct cleaning, dust mite removal, biohazardous cleanup, lead removal, and more.
Since about 1980, asthma prevalence and asthma-related hospitalizations and deaths have increased alarmingly. Recent studies suggest that exposure to indoor allergy triggers influence the course and severity of asthma, and/or allergic reactions. Some of these indoor allergy and asthma triggers can be: dust mites, cockroaches, mold due to water damage and other causes such as soot and smoke, pet dander, tobacco smoke, and other biological and chemical pollutants. We are concerned about the potential health risks to you and others within your building due to poor indoor air quality, exposure to contaminants or exposure to various molds.
The current situation in schools is not better, as student asthma and allergy rates climb increasingly higher. Massachusetts state officials found the prevalence of asthma within their school districts averaged 9.2%, which is a cause for alarm among public health advocates. Among the potential causes cited were: poor indoor air quality (IAQ), mold, water damage and fire damage, dust mites, and other environmental pollutants.
There is a correlation between the increased human exposure to indoor air pollution and rising rates of asthma incidences.
