Petri Plumbing & Heating encourages Brooklyn, Manhattan residents to proactively maintain the purity of air inside their homes
BROOKLYN, N.Y., April 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Petri Plumbing & Heating, Inc., a family-owned home service company serving Brooklyn and Manhattan for more than 100 years, is a champion of good indoor air quality as a way to promote better health for residents.
Over the past year, IAQ has become a prominent talking point related to the pandemic. But, the need for excellent air quality goes beyond fighting COVID-19. There are several other issues that can arise from poor indoor air.
"We know the average American spends 90 percent of their time indoors," said Michael Petri, owner of Petri Plumbing & Heating. "With that much time spent inside, it is important that homeowners to know that poor air quality can contribute to various health issues and cause different infections and chronic diseases."
According to the EPA, indoor concentrations of some pollutants have increased in recent decades due to construction and a number of pesticides and household cleaners.
Some of the common symptoms of poor IAQ include irritation of the eyes, nose, throat and skin; headaches; coughing, sneezing and nasal congestion. During the spring, pollen can make sneezing and coughing a regular issue.
Preparing for spring time pollutants is one of the best ways to help improve IAQ during the season. Cleaning air ducts can help get rid of the allergens that have been drawn into your HVAC unit. Regularly changing air filters will help clean air circulate throughout a home.
Ventilating the house by opening a window or using an air purifier while cleaning will help reduce volatile organic compounds in a home as well.
"While preventing the spread of COVID-19 is a real concern, it is just as important to improve your air quality for other health reasons," said Petri. "It is an easy thing to do and little things, like changing air filters regularly, make a big difference."
