Building Health Check ™ Offers Exciting Franchise Opportunities
Clearwater, Florida - January 22, 2007 --
In the last several years, a growing body of scientific evidence has indicated that the air within homes and other buildings can be more seriously polluted than the outdoor air in even the largest and most industrialized cities. Other research indicates that people spend approximately 90 percent of their time indoors. Thus, for many people, the risks to health may be greater due to exposure to air pollution indoors than outdoors.
In addition, people who may be exposed to indoor air pollutants for the longest periods of time are often those most susceptible to the effects of indoor air pollution. Such groups include the young, the elderly, and the chronically ill, especially those suffering from respiratory or cardiovascular disease.
Health effects from indoor air pollutants may be experienced soon after exposure or, possibly, years later.
Immediate effects may show up after a single exposure or repeated exposures. These include irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat, headaches, dizziness, and fatigue. Such immediate effects are usually short-term and treatable. Sometimes the treatment is simply eliminating the person's exposure to the source of the pollution, if it can be identified.
Health related problems caused by indoor air pollutants such as animal dander, molds, bacteria, mycotoxins, dust mites and other biological pollutants includes:
- recognized infectious disease
- exacerbation of asthma
- conjunctival inflammation
- recurrent fever
- chest tightness
In keeping with the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) 1997 recommendations, it is desirable to identify and remove common allergens and modify the home or office to reduce the level of ubiquitous (common) allergens. Before one can remove allergens and/or pollutants effectively, it is essential to understand if they exist and in what quantity. Building Health Check provides the solution.
