What’s In Your Home’s Air?
When most people think about “air quality”, they think about what’s in the air they breathe outside. Exhaust, smog, allergens, and bacteria: you draw all of these things into your lungs every moment you spend outside your front door. After all that time battling traffic, you may see your home as a safe harbor, full of good air. Unfortunately, that’s just not the case, and your home’s indoor air quality can be even worse than the air outside.
What makes indoor air quality potentially worse than outdoor air?
Not only is your home’s air recycling the same pollutants and smog found outside, but it also has the addition of dust and pollutants from the materials used to construct your home. Long-term exposure to poor indoor air could result in not only greater sensitivity to allergens and dust, but health problems. It’s an issue of scope. After all, think about it: how much time each day do you spend indoors versus outdoors? Even if you’re an active person or work outside all day, you’re still eating dinner, spending time with your family, and sleeping indoors. You spend a far greater percentage of your day breathing in the air from your home than the air from outside.
What can homeowners do about this?
The best way to know what’s in your home’s air? Indoor air quality testing. Reimer helps homeowners throughout the greater Buffalo area with indoor air quality testing.

WHAT ELSE SHOULD I BE THINKING ABOUT?
It’s not technically air quality, per se, but the relative humidity inside of your home may need to be adjusted.
Homes that are too humid create a friendly atmosphere for mold growth, while those that are too dry lead to cracking wallpaper and bloody noses. Give Reimer to call about our humidifier and dehumidifier solutions.
