Why Improving Air Quality Matters for Homeowners and Builders

Air quality is one of the most important factors in determining the health and well-being of a person’s home. The air in the house can affect everything from allergies to asthma, which is why homeowners are increasingly demanding their builders for construction that enables clean air. Here are some reasons why improving air quality matters for homeowners.

It Can Reduce Health Care Hazards

Poor indoor air quality has many negative health effects, including asthma attacks, allergies, headaches, fatigue, and even long-term illnesses like cancer. It can also affect children’s behavior and learning ability. Exposure to poor-quality air can also increase the risk of heart disease and lung cancer.

People Feel Better

When people breathe clean air, they feel better, making it easier for them to go through their day without any side effects like headaches or fatigue. Improved air quality also saves them a lot of money on medical bills over time.

They Can Sell Their Homes Faster

Homes with poor air quality tend not to sell as fast or for as much money as those with good-quality air—which is why it’s important as builders to give their clients the awareness of having a house with good air quality.

How to Keep the Air Quality Better?

Household chemicals such as cleaning products and paints can release volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the air over time. As builders, you need to use alternatives such as water-based polyurethane that have little to no VOCs and help improve air quality significantly. You can also set up air purifiers that remove airborne particles like pollen and pet dander from the house.
