How Indoor Air Quality Affects Your Health

Mold, pollen and pet dander are ordinary pollution sources in your residence. Other sources 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 found in numerous air fresheners and scented candles. Increased VOCs can lead to respiratory irritation, headaches and dizziness, among other problems.

10 Signs Your Home has Poor Indoor Air Quality

If your family has symptoms that intensify at home and get better when you leave, you may be suffering from indoor pollution. You should also talk to your doctor if you’re worried about your health.

  1. Persistent 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 don’t have symptoms 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 dizzy. Inhaling in chemical pollutants can impact your energy levels.
  4. Frequent asthma attacks. Dust, pet dander, smoke and other triggers can be circulated through the air or get trapped in carpet.
  5. Coughing and sneezing. Allergies or colds can create these symptoms, but they shouldn’t be worse at home.
  6. Heavy dust despite regular cleaning. You may need to put in a new air filter or install a filtration system from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.
  7. Humidity problems. Dryness can cause itchy eyes and increase respiratory issues. 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 tied to air quality, especially if your HVAC system is having trouble controlling temperature and humidity.
  10. Nausea. This can be a response to the chemicals or pollutants in your home. It can also be a symptom of high carbon monoxide levels. Make sure that you have a functional carbon monoxide detector in your home.
