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 released by items in your home, such as building materials, flooring or furniture. They can also be located in various air fresheners and scented candles. Heightened VOCs can lead to respiratory irritation, headaches and dizziness, among other problems.

Many scientific studies have found respiratory diseases, asthma and other health conditions are due 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 problems that intensify 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 anxious about your health.

  1. Persistent cold or flu symptoms. A sore throat or runny nose that never goes away could be linked 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 vulnerable to indoor pollution and may react by growing dry, itchy or watery.
  3. Tiredness or feeling lightheaded. Breathing in chemical pollutants can have an influence on your energy levels.
  4. Constant 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. Excessive dust despite periodic cleaning. You may need to upgrade your air filter or install a filtration system from Church Services.
  7. Humidity imbalances. Dryness can cause scratchy eyes and amplify respiratory symptoms. Too much moisture can result in mold or mildew growth.
  8. Stale scents. Mold or mildew thrives 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 trouble balancing temperature and humidity.
  10. Nausea. This can be recoil from the chemicals or pollutants in your home. It can also be a indication of high carbon monoxide levels. Make sure that you have a functional carbon monoxide detector in your home.
