Why Indoor Air Quality is Vital!

  I wrote a lot of this about a year ago but I think it is important enough to have another read.

  Air Quality in the high plains of Texas is not perfect as you all know.  And inside your house right now the quality of air could be worse than it is outside.  I know what you’re saying, I keep a clean house, I use cleaners and products that help take pollutants out of the air.  Well, maybe, do you know that cleaning products and detergents with fragrances can release chemicals in the air of your home to cause your house to be worse than you think it is.  Look for products that have a green seal on it, this means these are safe to use in your home.

What about everyday items in your home?  Bedding on your bed, pillows, sheets and comforters should be washed weekly .  This will reduce allergens, including dust mites in your home.  Consider removing your shoes at the entrance you come in from.  Think where you walk, do you want to track all that over your floors and carpet?  Leave floor mats at all entrances to your home.  Use high efficiency particulate air vacuum cleaners, (HEPA), with disposable bags, and use microfiber cloths for surface dust removal.

Moisture inside the home in the home is not good thing to have as you know,  if there are any leaks in your home promptly fix them.  If you see mold on any porous materials, such as drywall, ceiling tiles or wood, discard them and replace.  Run the exhaust fans while showering.  House plants can improve indoor air quality by filtering carbon dioxide, however over watering can encourage mold growth.  The picture below are Indoor Air Quality test kits, or IAQ.  We do these for free inside your home.  Its a petrie dish and we let it sit inside your home for one hour.  Then we seal it up and place it in a dark cabinet or closet with in your house.  A week later we come out and show the results and then give you some great options to get your home’s sir cleaner and easier to live with.    These samples were taken out of two very clean homes.  But where the problem might be lurking about is in your HVAC, the coil, or maybe the drain pan.  The duct work could be compromised as well.  If you have aquariums inside your home, we have found out these can be a source.  The best thing you can do for your family and home is to call us and have us perform a test, then show you options to clean up the air.

And finally call Adam’s Air and book time for us to come out and check out your furnace so it will be ready to work in the best way when it gets cold, and believe me it will get cold.

Tour De Tejas, I want to ride my bicycle!

As a lot of you know we are sponsoring the Amarillo Interscholastic Cycling team, the Yellow Jackets, this year.  Yes there is a cycling team that consists of 6-12th grade young men and ladies who are in the Amarillo, Bushland, and Canyon school districts.  They are currently raising funds for the team on their out of town trips across Texas.  They don’t have a booster club like football or the band, so they have fund raisers year round to help pay for travel, hotel rooms and other necessities.  This past weekend we had our second of three scheduled car washes for the summer.  Once again the Amarillo area came through and help make this car wash successful!  We couldn’t have put this all together without the help of our friends and business partners.

Semi-Professional Cycling in Amarillo, Texas

You heard me right, we have a group of young men and girls that are in the 6th grade up to the 12th grade that are cycling the streets and hills of Amarillo, and the community.  The team is called the Yellow Jackets and it is a high school cycling team.  The group compete in the National Interscholastic Cycling Association.  They ride the trails in Palo Duro Canyon weekly and the team is great.  They have such a great attitude and they express themselves in such a way, full of talent, compassion, and integrity.  Plus on top of that they are athletics in the best of terms.  They work hard at what they do and they win races and time trials.  On May 6th the team will be out at the Amarillo National Bank on Georgia.  Along with Carpet Tech and Adam’s Air, we are having a fundraiser car wash.    Please come out and support the team and learn more about them.
