On a yacht air quality is often overlooked.
At SERVPRO of Fort Lauderdale North, we love boats.
Not only do we love seeing boats, we also love working on them. Many people don’t realize that due to the the extreme conditions under which they operate operate, the yacht air quality can become contaminated with hazardous mold or bacteria. In fact, the EPA estimates yacht air quality and other indoor air pollution, such as that on board a yacht can reach up to 100 times as contaminated as outdoor air. Symptoms of poor yacht air quality can include irritation of the eyes, skin, nose, sore throat, headaches, colds and flu, dizziness, nausea and fatigue. Extended exposure to contaminants can have even more detrimental effects. The long term effects of exposure to poor yacht air quality can include, but may not be limited to:
- Severe allergies
- Heart disease
- Respiratory disease
- Reproductive disorders
- And even cancer!
But fortunately, there is a simple solution…
