How healthy do you think your home is? It might not be as healthy as you think. Pollution can be two to five times worse inside than outside your home, stated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Indoor air buildup floating through your home’s air could result in headaches and allergy attacks. And mold and mildew can cause a host of health problems.
Even though health problems could be caused by other factors, they could be a warning your home has indoor air quality (IAQ) issues. This is particularly the potential cause if your symptoms improve when you’re gone.
- Dry eyes, nose, throat or skin
- Headaches and sinus concerns
- Allergies or asthma symptoms that are worse than regular
- Coughing and sneezing
- Faintness or feeling sick to your stomach
A timeworn heating and cooling machine may be a possible factor in indoor air quality problems, particularly if the HVAC system appears to be having difficulty to clean air, adjust humidity or keep temperatures dependable.
Here are further signals you may need to improve your indoor air:
- Too much static or mold growth
- Excessive grime
- Musty smells
