How Clean Is Your Indoor Air?

December 19, 2019

Ken Parker Service, Inc. has provided a full range of indoor air quality services to Greenville and all of Northeast Texas since 1977. Our team often encounters homeowners who do not know where their IAQ levels are at. However, we think it’s important to understand air quality information.

EPA Warning

Many homeowners are surprised to learn that pollution levels are often significantly higher inside their homes than outside. The EPA recognizes poor IAQ as one of the leading health risks in the U.S. Even as overall pollution levels are on the decline; better construction has exacerbated the problem in homes.

IAQ Assessment

Every homeowner should have a notion of what the ideal IAQ is for their home, know what their actual levels are now and have a plan to get to their target and remain there. IAQ testers and monitors are available at retail. You can also have a local IAQ expert perform the testing for you.


Modern homes are constructed to be as energy-efficient as possible. This means that they are well-sealed, and you are heavily reliant on your ventilation system to get fresh air. Wintertime is an excellent time of year to test your IAQ and assess your ventilation for this very reason.

Fostering Positive IAQ

In order for indoor pollution levels to be less than outdoor pollution levels, you need to invest in a whole-home air cleaner or similar. Dust is the leading contributor to high indoor air pollution because it traps pollutants and contaminants and then reemits them over time. You should also be careful not to introduce pollutants, such as chemicals, including those from many artificial air fresheners.
