In the news recently we’ve been hearing more and more about indoor air quality. While it’s beneficial that homes are built more efficiently to help keep conditioned air in, it also traps air pollutants in. Scoundrels such as dust, dander, mites, mildew, smoke, cooking grease, bacteria, and pollen can linger inside your home. Air pollutants can cause unwanted health problems and irritate those who already have medical conditions.
If the indoor air quality in your home concerns you O’Brien is here. We offer several products to assist in reducing unwanted airborne particles. Below is a description of some of the options. You can always contact our office as well to get insight from one of our knowledgeable team members.
