Would Your Home Pass an Air Quality Test?

When you picture air pollution, you probably think of the hazy smog that casts down on big cities or the burning smoke coming from fossil fuel stations. You’re not even considering the air inside your home. But did you know that the air quality indoors can be worse than the air quality outside? Even if you’re known to keep your home free of dust and sparkling clean, there are sneaky pollutants that could be harming your health.

Symptoms of poor indoor air quality:

  • Worsening allergies, asthma, or other respiratory problems

  • Headaches and nausea

  • Shortness of breath

  • Sinus congestion, sneezing, and coughing

  • Eye, skin, nose, and throat irritations

  • Memory loss, dizziness, and fatigue

By being aware of these symptoms, you can stay alert to any decreases in your home’s air quality. For peace of mind, you can always get an air quality test to find out what kind of harmful pollutants you’re dealing with.

Potential causes:

  • Many cleaning products and air fresheners can release toxic fumes into the air in the form of volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

  • High humidity and damp conditions allow mold and mildew to grow.

  • Your bedding could be the home to dust mites.

  • You are cooking without the exhaust fan.

  • You are going long periods without replacing your HVAC’s air filter.
