How Indoor Air Quality Affects Your Health

Mold, pollen and pet dander are typical pollution sources in your residence. Other supplies include household cleaners and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

VOCs can be expelled by products in your home, such as building materials, flooring or furniture. They can also be located in some air fresheners and scented candles. Heightened VOCs can cause respiratory irritation, headaches and dizziness, among other issues.

Many scientific studies have found respiratory diseases, asthma and other health problems are connected to inferior indoor air quality. Allergies can also be triggered by indoor air quality problems.

 

10 Signs Your Home has Poor Indoor Air Quality

If your family has conditions that are bad at home and get better when you leave, you may be struggling with indoor pollution. You should also talk to your doctor if you’re worried about your health.

  1. Lingering cold or flu symptoms. A sore throat or runny nose that never gets better could be linked to air quality. This is especially true if you feel better when you leave your home.
  2. Watery, itchy or dry eyes. Your eyes are sensitive to indoor pollution and may react by turning dry, itchy or watery.
  3. Fatigue or feeling lightheaded. Breathing in chemical pollutants can impact your energy levels.
  4. Constant asthma attacks. Dust, pet dander, smoke and other triggers can be spread through the air or get stuck in carpet.
  5. Coughing and sneezing. Allergies or colds can cause these symptoms, but they shouldn’t be worse at home.
  6. Too much dust despite weekly cleaning. You may need to upgrade your air filter or get a filtration system from Pardee Service Experts.
  7. Humidity imbalances. Dryness can cause itchy eyes and amplify respiratory symptoms. Too much moisture can cause mold or mildew growth.
  8. Stuffy scents. Mold or mildew blossoms when the humidity in your home is too high.
  9. Hot or cold spots. This can be related to air quality, especially if your HVAC system is having issues regulating temperature and humidity.
  10. Nausea. This can be a response to the chemicals or pollutants in your home. It can also be a indication of high carbon monoxide levels. Check that you have a functional carbon monoxide detector in your home.
