Seattle Homes Face Unique Challenges
MOLD & MOISTURE
Seattle homes face a combination of factors not found in other regions. Unlike most cities in the northern portion of our country, our humidity problems occur in the winter. During the summer months, the temperatures are mild and the humidity is relatively low. Yet in the winter, while the humidity drops in most regions, our humidity increases. This provides an environment conducive to mold and indoor air quality issues.
LEAD & ASBESTOS
Older homes located in Queen Anne and Capital Hill often contain asbestos and lead based paint. Many of these homes are due for major remodel projects, which can lead to health risks if the construction is not handled correctly.
Over the last 10 or 20 years, changes in the building code have led to far tighter homes. While this has improved the energy efficiency of the homes, it has had an inverse effect on indoor air quality. The climate in Seattle suffers from high winter relative humidity. When homes are sealed tight, the natural humidity combines with the additional moisture created by the occupants, leading to high relative humidity.
Despite these challenges, addressing indoor environmental issues in Seattle is often very cost effective. Because all of our humidity issues occur in the winter when temperatures are cool, many problems can be solved by simply increasing the fresh air intake (while maintaining a well heated home).
