Smells+Oders+Moister= Problems


Remove Mold and Moisture From Your Chicago Home


It is common for mold to grow in a home. Mold growth is more rapid in areas with high levels of moisture. High indoor humidity, water leaks, flooding and condensation are all situations that increase the growth of mold.

Some common places within a home for mold to grow include:

  • Basements: Moisture seepage causes mold on walls, floors, carpeting and other materials that are stored in the basement.
  • Crawlspaces: Cross ventilation of humid air through a cooler space or complete lack of ventilation can cause condensation. Dirt floors allow moisture and unwanted gas to enter the building envelope.
  • Bathrooms: Moisture causes mold on shower walls, ceramic tiles, and fiberglass. The proper use of exhaust fans can help with bathroom mold growth.
  • Laundry Rooms: Damp towels, wet clothing and drying clothes without a vent can cause mold growth.
  • Kitchens: Boiling water often using no exhaust fan can cause mold to grow. Mold is also common in automatic defrosting refrigerator pans.
  • Closets: Storing damp or dirty clothing can cause mold growth.
  • Behind Furniture: Lack of ventilation, darkness, warmth and dampness can cause mold growth.

How E-Z Breathe Helps

Every Breath You Take

Finally, the relief you’ve been searching for. The E·Z Breathe ventilation system removes harmful contaminants that cause odors and replaces the home with fresh, odor-free air. You will notice a big difference immediately!

Odors and smells within a home not only cause discomfort but can also be the result of bigger problems such as excessive moisture in the air and mold. Mold in a home can cause headaches, nasal irritation, dizziness, fatigue and nausea. The main culprit of lingering, unpleasant odors in a home is the lack of proper ventilation and poor air quality


Common contaminants that affect the quality of indoor air

 Allergens are natural particles such as dust mites, pet dander, and pollen, which irritate, inflame and promote respiratory illness. Airborne bacteria and viruses can lead to a wide range of ailments and infections, and thrive in damp, stale environments. Without ventilation, these bacteria continue to breed. Toxic chemicals are the condensation and buildup of vapors from common household products such as paint, pesticides, cleaners, solvents, adhesives and aerosols that can be highly toxic if not properly ventilated from the home. Mold is a fungus, which needs moisture to exist, that gradually destroys the things it grows on. Spores released by mold are highly toxic and can cause serious – and even terminal – health complications.\Moisture is the number-one problem in air quality control. Uncontrolled moisture promotes mold growth, feeds thriving bacteria and causes structural damage to the home.

How EZ-Breathe work


The EZ Breathe ventilation system establishes the proper amount of airflow in your home/building making the air cleaner and healthier to breathe. Studies report that the “average home’s foundation absorbs 10-15 gallons of water vapor from through the walls and floor every day”. As a result the damp polluted air settles and builds up in the lowest part of your home/building. With the installation of an EZ Breathe unit this bad air is completely expelled from your home/building never allowing for unhealthy damaging build up. The EZ Breathe unit removes that stale, damp, contaminated air at its source. By eliminating the pollutants at the lowest level, EZ Breathe creates air exchange for a healthier home. The direct effect of the air being expelled and the flow of healthier air downwards creates an air exchange in the house/building approximately six to ten times that of the average home/building! This helps decrease mildew and molds by not allowing the moist air to stagnate and condense on cool surfaces and improves the overall quality of the indoor air. Gases pollutants that have built up in the home/building are also expelled and replaced with fresh air from the upstairs.

Paint Shield Microbicidal Interior Latex Paint

Paint Shield® is the first EPA-registered microbicidal paint that kills greater than 99.9% of Staph (Staphylococcus aureus), MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), E. coli (Escherichia coli), VRE (Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecalis) and Enterobacter aerogenes within two hours of exposure on painted surfaces. It continues to kill 90% of these bacteria even after repeated contamination on painted surfaces. The effectiveness lasts for up to four years as long as the integrity of the surface is maintained.

Better known as as ERV

Fresh air + Energy recovery, reducing running cost of cooling or heating system

 Energy recovery ventilation (ERV) is the energy recovery process of exchanging the energy contained in normally exhausted building or space air and using it to treat (precondition) the incoming outdoor ventilation air in residential and commercial HVAC systems. During the warmer seasons, the system pre-cools and dehumidifies while humidifying and pre-heating in the cooler seasons. The benefit of using energy recovery is the ability to meet the ASHRAE ventilation & energy standards, while improving indoor air quality and reducing total HVAC equipment capacity.

WHOLE HOUSE FAN


Health concerns
A tightly constructed home traps toxic air which can lead to serious health issues.  A whole house fan moves unhealthy air out of the house.

Cost
A whole house fan can run 24/7 for pennies.

Refreshed air vs. re-circulated air
A house needs to breathe. A whole house fan allows it to do so; an air conditioner doesn’t.

Allergies
Many people who have allergies can’t tolerate an air-conditioned environment.

Aesthetics
A whole house fan sits unseen in an attic or utility closet.

Noise
Our modern whole house fans do their work quietly and efficiently.

Natural temperature relief
Alternative cooling brings in outside air to cool your home without the negative effects of air conditioning.
