Would you consider your home healthy? It could not be as healthy as you think. Pollution can be two to five times worse indoors than outside your home, as noted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Indoor air contaminants floating through your home’s air might result in headaches and allergy flareups. And mold and mildew pose a potential health risk.
Though headaches and allergies could be the result of other things, they may be a warning your home has indoor air quality (IAQ) issues. This is especially accurate if it goes away once you’re gone.
- Dehydrated eyes, nose, throat or skin
- Headaches and sinus concerns
- Allergies or asthma symptoms that are more irritated than regular
- Coughing and sneezing
- Light-headedness or nausea
An outdated heating and cooling machine might be a potential factor in indoor air quality concerns, particularly if your systems is having problems to purify air, adjust humidity or keep temperatures consistent.
Here are further indications you may need to improve your indoor air:
- Too much static or mold growth
- Unwarranted grime
- Stale odors
