If you or a loved one suffers from lung-related problems, you already know how important the air they breathe is. It is crucial to keep your air clean and free from mold and other contaminants, and that is why using EZ Breathe Ventilation for basement ventilation is such an important addition to your home.
Basement Ventilation Removes Mold from the Air
A common cause of poor indoor air quality is the presence of mold. Surprisingly, mold may grow on nearly any surface, from paper products and walls to carpet and insulation. Anyone may react to mold. However, those who are sensitive to mold or have asthma may experience respiratory infections, cough, and worsening shortness of breath.
Opening a window may seem like a good solution, but it does not address where mold and pollutants live in your home. Both basements and crawlspaces need to be ventilated, which is where EZ Breathe Ventilation comes in. Essentially, it is an air exchange system that pushes out pollutants and moisture (a common cause of mold) and replaces it with fresh, healthy air. The system draws untreated air from the main level floor, which is much closer to the culprit and more efficient than opening a window.
Basement Ventilation Removes Unwanted Moisture from Your Home
Mold is not the only problem EZ Breathe Ventilation can address. Excess moisture can cause physical and property damage, too. Fortunately, managing your home’s humidity through basement ventilation handles both problems. Beyond mold, too much moisture in the air may intensify allergies and asthma. With good ventilation, low moisture means less mold and better breathing.
In addition, excess moisture can also lead to property damage, which may lessen the value of your home. Foundation rot, paint peeling, and concrete splitting may all be caused by moisture saturation. Controlling humidity will help you avoid these costly issues.
Basement Ventilation Removes Toxins and Odors that Cause Poor Air Quality
There are other issues in addition to mold that require ventilation, and they include toxins and odors. Radon is an odorless gas released through the uranium decay of rocks and soil, and while it is present everywhere, your home’s basement can accumulate unhealthy amounts of radon. Using basement ventilation with EZ Breathe will address the problem by removing the gas and will give you peace of mind.
Unpleasant odors from mold, mildew, and dust are difficult to live with, and they usually point to more serious problems. Proper ventilation will remove those foul odors, leaving you a fresh-smelling house. It will also address the causes of those odors, and once they are removed, you will notice the difference right away!
