How Indoor Air Quality Affects Your Health

Mold, pollen and pet dander are common pollution sources in your house. 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 located in various air fresheners and scented candles. Heightened VOCs can lead to respiratory irritation, headaches and dizziness, among other symptoms.

Many scientific studies have found respiratory diseases, asthma and other health problems are connected to bad indoor air quality. Allergies can also be worsened by indoor air quality issues.

 

10 Signs Your Home has Poor Indoor Air Quality

If your family has symptoms that worsen at home and get better when you leave, you may be struggling with indoor pollution. You should also talk to your doctor if you’re anxious about your health.

  1. Lingering cold or flu symptoms. A sore throat or runny nose that never improves could be connected 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 becoming dry, itchy or watery.
  3. Exhaustion or feeling lightheaded. Breathing in chemical pollutants can affect your energy levels.
  4. Recurring asthma attacks. Dust, pet dander, smoke and other triggers can be circulated through the air or get caught in carpet.
  5. Coughing and sneezing. Allergies or colds can lead to these symptoms, but they shouldn’t be worse at home.
  6. Heavy dust despite regular cleaning. You may need to get a new air filter or get a filtration system from Bryant Heating & Cooling Service Experts.
  7. Humidity imbalances. Dryness can cause scratchy eyes and worsen respiratory symptoms. Too much moisture can cause mold or mildew growth.
  8. Musty odors. Mold or mildew thrives 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 warning of high carbon monoxide levels. Ensure that you have a functional carbon monoxide detector in your home.
