Home Inspections for Better Health
(NU) - Many Americans view their homes as safe havens, but homes are not necessarily where the health is. Indoor air pollutants can cause major health problems, especially since most Americans spend 87 percent of their time indoors. According to the Mayo Clinic, 40 million Americans suffered from chronic sinus infections in 1999. Ninety-six percent of those infections were mold-related. The Canadian Federal Ministry of Health has linked mold to asthma and Organic Toxic Dust Syndrome (OTSD), an acute respiratory illness. But mold isnít the only indoor pollutant. Paints, varnishes and normal household cleaners can all reduce indoor air health.

Prevent Mold in Your Home
(NU) - The air naturally contains mold spores, which are part of the natural environment. Outdoors, molds help break down decaying organic matter. But when molds grow indoors, it can cause serious health problems. How does mold move indoors? When circulating mold spores land in damp, moist environments, like insulation a round a leaking pipe, they start to reproduce.

Once indoors, mold can cause or expedite heath problems, especially in people already prone to asthma or allergies. Ailments associated with poor indoor air health include respiratory problems, fatigue, headaches, pneumonia, greater susceptibility to other infections, sinus congestion, skin problems, and ear, nose and throat irritation.

Inspections Ensure Healthy Homes
(NU) - Homeowners often assume that their homes are healthy -- but indoor spaces can be more heavily polluted than the air outside.

Poor indoor air quality can seriously impact health. Many chemicals, including formaldehyde and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which are often found in homes and offices, can contam- inate indoor air, leading to allergic reactions or chronic illness in certain individuals. Poor indoor air quality has been linked to a number of ailments, including cardiovascular stress, asthma, fatigue, headaches, digestive problems, impaired coordination and respiratory disease. Individuals with known conditions, like allergies, respiratory ailments and chemical sensitivities, or people who spend a lot of time indoors, such as children, women, seniors and the disabled,experience elevated risk.
