Help Me Reduce Mold In My Home
Most people don’t think about the air quality in their homes until a problem occurs. Or, even worse, someone in your home develops symptoms or health issues. Only then do homeowners wonder if something in their home could be causing irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat, headaches, dizziness or fatigue. The truth is, we spend about 90% of our time indoors. So the risks to health may be greater due to indoor air pollution than outdoors.
Diagnosing indoor air problems can be challenging. 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. Or, symptoms develop only 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 such as the following impact your indoor air quality.
- carbon monoxide
- lead paint
- vermiculite (or VOCs)
Other, more subtle things that may be impact indoor air quality in homes can be relative humidity levels, dust, dog or cat dander or the amount of fresh air entering your home.
