Health Effects of Poor Indoor Air Quality
By reducing or eradicating airborne contaminants floating around we might not be aware of, we decrease associated health problems. However, the problem with indoor air pollution, what makes it insidious, is that a great deal of the health problems aren’t evident immediately after exposure. Because some forms of indoor air pollution can linger for years and cause severe health problems down the road, it would behoove a homeowner not to investigate, or to educate themselves, and to find out what’s floating around in the air in their home.

What is Ultraviolet Light?
Most of us have heard of UV Light, but what exactly is it?
Ultraviolet (UV) means “beyond violet.” Since violet is the highest frequency of visible light, UV light is mostly invisible to the human eye. Most of the UV light on earth comes from the rays of the sun, which causes freckling, sunburn, and raises the risk of skin cancer. Luckily, most of the UV radiation gets absorbed into the atmosphere before it reaches us.
UV light is a type of electromagnetic radiation. UVA (Ultraviolet A) Radiation is used in black lights and tanning beds, for example. You may be familiar with black lights that emit ultraviolet light, causing certain items to fluoresce, or glow in the dark. Limited exposure to these low-power UV lights doesn’t present a hazard to skin or eyes. The other types of UV rays, however, can be very harmful.
