How Indoor Air Quality Affects Your Health

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

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

Many scientific studies have found respiratory diseases, asthma and other health problems are linked to poor indoor air quality. Allergies can also be worsened by indoor air quality issues.

 

10 Signs Your Home has Poor Indoor Air Quality

If your family has symptoms that worsen at home and improve when you leave, you may be struggling with indoor pollution. You should also talk to your doctor if you’re anxious about your health.

  1. Lingering cold or flu symptoms. A sore throat or runny nose that never improves 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 susceptible to indoor pollution and may react by growing dry, itchy or watery.
  3. Exhaustion or feeling faint. Inhaling in chemical pollutants can have an influence on your energy levels.
  4. Frequent asthma attacks. Dust, pet dander, smoke and other triggers can be circulated 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 get a new air filter or add a filtration system from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.
  7. Humidity issues. Dryness can cause itchy eyes and amplify respiratory issues. Too much moisture can lead to mold or mildew growth.
  8. Stuffy odors. Mold or mildew flourishers when the humidity in your home is too high.
  9. Hot or cold spots. This can be tied to air quality, especially if your HVAC system is having problems controlling 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 operating carbon monoxide detector in your home.
