Improve indoor air quality in your home or business, it sounds difficult, right? Wrong! Your home’s air quality can have quite an impact on your family’s health and comfort, and many people do not realize just how many household products they own that are actually harming their IAQ. Here is a glimpse at three common products that can be devastating when we are exposed to them for a long period of time.
It might seem counter-intuitive, but air fresheners can be quite unhealthy for a family. Countless companies continue to produce air fresheners that have a number of carcinogens in them, and these can be exceptionally dangerous within a short period of time. If you are looking for safe ways to create an enticing aroma within your home, then you might want to switch over to natural products such as cinnamon, patchouli, and vanilla extract.
Modern aerosol spray cans must be CFC-free, but they still emit some volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the air. VOCs are notoriously unhealthy and can result in serious health issues if we inhale them. Limited exposure to VOCs often produces headaches, nausea, and dizziness. Over the course of a few years, however, VOCs can lead to kidney damage, liver damage, and cancer.
Pesticides are designed to kill smaller animals such as mice and cockroaches while remaining safe for humans. While there are relatively safe pesticides, many over-the-counter products are exceptionally dangerous when we are exposed to them for a long period of time. Families should do everything that they can to avoid any pesticides that contain toxic material. Many exterminators now offer their clients pest removal services that use absolutely no toxins, carcinogens, and VOCs.

Steve Zonenstein came out this afternoon for a 6 month service call. He was fantastic! He explained everything he was doing and showed me how to deal with a clogged drain, which can be a problem at times. He was thorough, knowledgeable, professional and extremely pleasant. Very happy with the service call. Thank you, Palm Air.
Sean was great. Your company really is the best I have dealt with. He went over my entire system thoroughly and explained everything. Great service
