Air Quality Las Vegas
Las Vegas is a wonderful city, but unfortunately, as the city has grown, the quality of the air its citizens breathe has deteriorated. In fact, the city has the 16th worst smog levels in the U.S. Many people think that poor air quality only affects them when they are in traffic or walking around in the city. Actually, poor air quality in a general metro area can infiltrate homes, leaving no sanctuary from its harmful effects. Without in-home products like air purifiers, Las Vegas residents can needlessly suffer.
Poor air quality is primarily caused by two sources – ground level ozone and particulate matter. Ground level ozone is the dominant element in smog. Ground level ozone intensifies during hot, sunny days, of which Las Vegas has an ample supply. Particulate matter is made up of many of the microscopic bits floating around in the air including: dust, dirt, metals, acids, and other organic and non-organic materials. Without proper air duct cleaning, Las Vegas homes can be bombarded with these materials. These particles don’t have the negative stigma of smog, but they can be harmful in their own right.
The ozone in smog can have a particularly harmful effect on children because their lungs have not yet fully developed. Kids with asthma are especially at risk. Days of high ozone levels lead to more children with asthma admitted to hospitals. For those families with children, a local Las Vegas air quality services company is especially helpful.
Ozone in combination with particulate matter can cause an abundance of problems including:
- Premature death for those with lung or heart disease
- Heart arrhythmias (irregular heartbeats)
- Reduced lung function
- Increased asthma symptoms
- Overall respiratory problems like coughing, difficulty breathing, and irritation in the throat and nose
