How Indoor Air Quality Affects Your Health

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

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

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

 

10 Signs Your Home has Poor Indoor Air Quality

If your family has problems 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 concerned about your health.

  1. Ongoing cold or flu symptoms. A sore throat or runny nose that never goes away could be related to air quality. This is especially true if you don’t feel sick when you leave your home.
  2. Watery, itchy or dry eyes. Your eyes are sensitive to indoor pollution and may react by growing dry, itchy or watery.
  3. Tiredness or feeling faint. Inhaling in chemical pollutants can affect 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 upgrade your air filter or install a filtration system from Neal Harris Service Experts.
  7. Humidity problems. Dryness can cause scratchy eyes and amplify respiratory problems. Too much moisture can cause mold or mildew growth.
  8. Stuffy scents. Mold or mildew flourishers when the humidity in your home is too high.
  9. Hot or cold spots. This can be linked to air quality, especially if your HVAC system is having problems regulating temperature and humidity.
  10. Nausea. This can be a response to the chemicals or pollutants in your home. It can also be a warning of high carbon monoxide levels. Ensure that you have a operating carbon monoxide detector in your home.
