The air quality in your home isn’t always as easy to see as it is to feel. If you have contaminants in the air, your home in Stuart, Florida, won’t feel like a healthy haven. While you can clean some problems on your own, there are a few signs that you should leave your troubles to a professional.

You’re Sensitive to Airborne Irritants

Poor indoor air quality (IAQ) can cause a variety of health problems, including:

  • Coughing
  • Headaches
  • Skin irritation
  • Congestion
  • Dizziness

You may be particularly susceptible to these if you suffer from asthma or allergies. If you’re feeling the effects of your home’s IAQ problems, it’s better to let a professional deal with them than to try yourself. Stirring up irritants will only make your discomfort worse.

You Have a Widespread Problem

If you’re dealing with a widespread biological growth or other contamination in your home, it’s best to contact a professional to make sure you have the proper tools to completely eradicate the issue. DIY solutions may work for a small problem area. But contamination that has spread throughout the home won’t respond as well to home remedies. In the long-term, investing in professional help is often cheaper than going through several failed rounds of DIY remediation.

You Can’t Identify the Source

Air quality issues are often tricky to pinpoint. Persistent health problems and poor home comfort may give you clues that something is amiss long before you pinpoint the problem. Our HVAC service technicians can perform an in-depth inspection of your HVAC system. We’ll uncover irritants or contaminants that you didn’t know were even there. Getting professional assistance will help you resolve difficult issues more quickly and efficiently.
