Ideally, your home will be full of clean air that is easy to breathe. However, it is not uncommon for dust particles or other impurities to get into that air and make your home less comfortable than it should be. Let’s take a look at a few pollutants that you may deal with on a regular basis.


Pollen can enter your home through an open window or through other spaces where air may be able to leak inside of your house. It can also attach itself to your clothes, shoes or anything else that you wear while outside. Once you come inside, it can easily be transferred to other surfaces throughout your property.


Mold tends to grow in dark and moist areas of a home, such as in a basement or an attic. Mold is also likely to form in bathrooms, kitchens or other spaces that aren’t well ventilated. A water heater, air conditioner or other type of leak could also create conditions ideal for mold growth. If you notice green or black splotches on a wall or piece of wood, it is probably caused by mold. The folks at Roanoke Mechanical Heating & Cooling in Roanoke may be able to repair a leaking water heater or take other steps to improve your home’s indoor air quality.


In many cases, you will see smoke wherever conditions may be ripe for a fire inside your home. Additionally, if someone in your house smokes cigars or similar products, it may get into the air and linger there for quite some time. With proper ventilation, it may be possible to get rid of smoke particles as well as the odor it creates. If such ventilation doesn’t exist, it may be necessary to have your home professionally cleaned. This is because smoke particles can eat away at floors, walls and other surfaces within your home.
