What are the types of air pollutants that can exist in your home?

  • Particulates – These itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny floaters that range in size from a few molecules wide to the width of a human hair can impact home health. Don’t let their small size fool you. Recommended actions: Let Mountainwest Service Experts in Salt Lake City install an electronic air cleaner with at least a MERV-13 rated HEPA filter, while you tend to your other tasks.
  • Gases – From mortal enemy carbon monoxide, to kitchen/fireplace staple natural gas, to silent, radioactive uranium/dinosaur-leftover radon, our homes may be filled with health-threatening gases that require being handled with care, mitigated or avoided altogether. Recommended actions: Install carbon monoxide and natural gas detectors and test for radon. Call Mountainwest Service Experts, and we’ll install an appropriate ventilation system.
  • Biological Contaminants – Pollen, dander, microbes, viruses, bacteria, fungi, and other germs are like mini zombies floating around your home. Take one out and 1,000 more rise from the ashes. Recommended actions: Let Mountainwest Service Experts install or upgrade a high efficiency Air Purification System or HEPA filtration system. Get the allergy relief you need in your home now – don’t keep on living with these contaminants!
