Outdoor Problems May Equal Indoor Concerns in the Greater Areas of Pueblo, Colorado Springs, Castle Rock

If you’re noticing the dry soil conditions outside, it’s important to check for indoor issues as well. Since the weather has been so warm, many of us retreat indoors during the hottest parts of the day without realizing that the dry air outside is creating poor air quality inside. Dry soil particles often settle on window sills and countertops, which are easy to wipe up. They also settle in our air filters and HVAC systems where they can travel throughout the house and aggravate our allergies year-round.

The Clay Bowl effects Air Quality

The “Clay Bowl Effect” can also be lowering your air quality. The stagnant water under your foundation creates a musty basement where mold and other allergens can hideout. These mold and mildew particles are then mixed into the dusty, dry air from the rest of the house through the duct system and the end result is an allergy cocktail that can leave our families feeling lousy.

If you and your family are experiencing lingering allergy symptoms, or poor air quality, Peak Structural would be happy to meet with you and discuss the benefits of our AquaStop™ Air System dehumidification system.
