• Aeration

  • Lawn Aeration

    Aeration involves perforating the soil with small holes to allow air, water and nutrients to penetrate the grass roots. This helps the roots grow deeply and produce a stronger, more vigorous lawn.

    The main reason for frac aeration is to alleviate soil compaction. Compacted soils have too many solid particles in a certain volume or space, which prevents proper circulation of air, water and nutrients within the soil. Excess lawn thatch or heavy organic debris buried under the grass surface can also starve the roots from these essential elements.

    Aeration рrоvіdеѕ oxygen tо bacteria fоr trеаtіng аnd ѕtаbіlіzіng thе wаѕtеwаtеr. Oxуgеn іѕ needed bу the bacteria tо allow biodegradation to оссur. Thе ѕuррlіеd оxуgеn is utіlіѕеd bу bacteria in thе wаѕtеwаtеr to break down the оrgаnіс mаttеr containing carbon tо form саrbоn dіоxіdе аnd wаtеr. Wіthоut thе рrеѕеnсе of sufficient оxуgеn, bacteria аrе nоt able to bіоdеgrаdе the іnсоmіng organic mаttеr in a reasonable tіmе. In thе аbѕеnсе оf dіѕѕоlvеd oxygen, dеgrаdаtіоn muѕt occur undеr ѕерtіс соndіtіоnѕ whісh аrе ѕlоw, оdоrоuѕ, аnd yield incomplete conversions оf роllutаntѕ. 

     

  • Ventilation helps your home rid itself of moisture, smoke, cooking odours, and indoor pollutants. Structural ventilation controls heat levels in the attic, moderates dampness in the crawlspace and basement, and keeps moisture out of uninsulated walls. It is also good to have an airflow that is uninterrupted, as anything blocking the air flow in your home can cause damage to both your home and your health. One of the reasons ventilation is so important is because it controls how much moisture is lingering in your home.

    Without a ventilation system in place, you have no control of the air flow in a building. If a home does not have an adequate ventilation system and humidity is high, this can provide a perfect breeding grounds for dust mites. These dust mites and their airborne detritus thrive in homes that are not effectively ventilated. When their detritus encounters the skin or is inhaled, it can cause allergic reactions, resulting in asthma attacks, eczema, watering eyes, itching, sneezing and a runny nose. These issues can be significantly reduced with an effective ventilation system and some asthma sufferers have seen immediate benefits when such a system has been fitted in their homes. Volatile Organic Compounds – or VOCs as they are often known – are invisible gases that can lead to many health problems in the home. The Scientific Committee on Health and Environmental Risks calculates there are up to 900 chemicals in indoor air, with negative side-effects much more common in properties without adequate ventilation. In fact, figures from the Environmental Protection Agency show the air inside homes could be 70 per cent more polluted than it is outdoors!

    The average person spends 70% of their time indoors within their own home which is why we recommend this Commercial Ventilation System. Good ventilation in the home helps you avoid the issues associated with poor air quality.
