Summer Safety

Indoor air quality in our homes is deteriorating at an alarming rate – Fact.

As we as a society become more security conscious, as carbon emissions from traffic increases, as external air pollution in general continues its growth, as volatile organic compounds (V.O.Cs) increasingly impact us on a daily basis, and as we rely on our air-conditioning and evaporative cooling to keep us cooler for longer in the summer, the internal environment where we spend the majority of our life, our home, becomes more and more a cause of health issues.

Don’t suffer any longer, get your summer healthy home check today.

Poorly maintained air-conditioning and evaporative cooling systems are a major cause of personal illness. They have been recognised as a primary cause of ‘sick-home’ syndrome which can lead to serious health issues such as:

  • Asthma
  • Respiratory disease
  • Bronchitis
  • Skin Conditions
  • Constant headaches
  • Cold and flu type symptoms

Specifically, Evaporative cooling and general air-conditioning is one of the major triggers of Asthma attacks during the warmer months. Harbouring the likes of external pollens, black mould, mildews, bacteria, and other general viruses, a non-maintained system in operation can ultimately result in serious health outcomes. The moisture generated from Evaporative cooling creates an environment that Dust Mites find particularly conducive for multiplying. Stagnant water in the outdoor units is a perfect breeding ground for mosquitos, their dead carcasses ultimately end up in your lounge or bedroom.

What to look out for

  • Constant sneezing and/ or coughing
  • Irritation of the eyes, nose, throat
  • Headaches
  • Skin irritations
  • Shortness of breath
  • Tightness of Chest
  • Cold and flu type symptoms
