Causes & Symptoms of Poor Air Quality
The symptoms of poor indoor air quality include frequent sneezing, coughing, sore throat, dizziness, fatigue, headaches, and upper respiratory congestion in children and adults. Air quality is diminished by the presence of harmful gases and particles in the air, including cleaning products, personal care products, cigarette smoke, pet dander, dust, bacteria, and plenty of other contaminants.
Improving Indoor Air Quality
Many times, contaminants in the home become trapped indoors as a result of inadequate ventilation. Modern homes are sealed up tightly to improve energy efficiency, so air does not circulate between the indoors and outside. This makes the air in the average home five times dirtier than the air outdoors. Fortunately, there are things you can do to make the air in your home cleaner. You can improve the quality of the air in your home by:
- Ensuring that fuel burning appliances are properly ventilated
- Using proper ventilation when using paint, cleaning products, or other chemicals
- Replacing the air filters on your HVAC system frequently
- Cleaning humidifiers and dehumidifiers regularly
- Using a HEPA vacuum cleaner, wash bedding frequently, and take shoes off when you come inside
- Having ductwork tested for leaks
- Installing carbon monoxide detectors in the home
