Renovations are a fantastic experience in improving the feel and look of spaces in your home or properties, but neglecting the critical step of vent cleaning afterwards betrays your peace of mind by exposing your body to harmful airborne substances.
The supplies and materials used throughout any kind of renovation are loaded with a range of chemicals harmful to the body, and in the hustle-and-bustle of renovations, they are made airborne. What looks like regular dust to the human eye turns out to be a dangerous concoction of volatile substances that circulate your home long-after your projects are done.
Find out what kind of substances renovations expose you to, and how to protect yourself, with Modern PURAIR
Volatile Organic Compounds
Volatile Organic Compounds, or VOC’s, are chemicals known to be used in a wide of consumer and commercial renovations products. Glue, drywall, paint and primer, and many aerosol-based products are loaded with VOC’s. Harmful to humans, these substances float around indoor air and are inhaled.
The same chemicals that make you light-headed when working with them, long-term exposure to even small amounts of VOC’s increases one’s exposure to a range of health complications, including cancer. VOC’s are not noticed when inhaling, but accumulate in vents and circulate a home’s indoor air long after renovation.
Protecting Yourself and Your Family
There are a range of measures you can take to reduce the impact of VOC’s on yourself and your family during a renovation, but it is only after renovation that you can eliminate it entirely.
During renovation, anything you can do to improve air circulation throughout and through your home will go a long way to eliminating VOC accumulation. Open windows, doors, and vents keep air moving and dust from settling on surface, ensuring as much as possible that they move outside the home.
Regardless of how well you promote air circulation, there is no avoiding at least some degree of harmful VOC buildup in your vents.
This is why experts stress the importance of vent cleanings after any renovation.
By comprehensively inspecting your entire ventilation system top-to-bottom, and ensuring each and every nook and cranny throughout is free of any accumulated debris, Modern PURAIR can guarantee that you and your family sleep easily (and healthily) long into the future.
