Is your home healthy? It could not be as fresh as you think. Pollution can be two to five times worse within your home than outdoors, stated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Indoor air buildup circulating through your house’s air may be a source of headaches and allergy flareups. And mold and mildew pose a potential health risk.
While these symptoms might be caused by other things, they can be a warning your house has indoor air quality (IAQ) issues. This is especially the potential cause if you feel better when you’re gone.
- Dry eyes, nose, throat or skin
- Headaches and sinus problems
- Allergies or asthma issues that are more aggravated than normal
- Coughing and sneezing
- Light-headedness or nausea
A timeworn heating and cooling system could be a possible cause in indoor air quality challenges, usually if it’s having problems to filter air, control humidity or keep temperatures dependable.
Here are a few other signs you may need to improve your indoor air:
- Too much static or mold growth
- Unwarranted dirt
- Musty scents
