Help Me Improve My Indoor Air Quality
Most people don’t think about the air quality in their homes until a problem occurs. Or even worse, someone develops symptoms like poor breathing. Only then do homeowners start to wonder if something in their home could be causing problems. For example, poor air quality leads to irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat, headaches, dizziness or fatigue. The truth is, we spend about 90% of our time indoors these days. As a result, the health risks may be greater due to indoor air pollution than outdoors.
Diagnosing indoor air problems remains challenging. Plus, there are many variables to consider. Some health effects may show up shortly after a single exposure to a pollutant. Conversely, other health effects may show up years after exposure occurred or after long or repeated periods of exposure. That is why it makes sense to try to improve the indoor air quality in your home even if symptoms are not noticeable. Pollutants that impact the indoor air quality include:
- carbon monoxide.
- lead paint.
- vermiculite or VOCs.
Other, more subtle things that may be effecting indoor air quality in homes can be relative humidity levels, dust, dog or cat dander or the amount of fresh air entering your home.
