How Indoor Air Quality Affects Your Health

Mold, pollen and pet dander are typical pollution sources in your house. Other causes 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 some air fresheners and scented candles. Heightened VOCs can cause respiratory irritation, headaches and dizziness, among other issues.

10 Signs Your Home has Poor Indoor Air Quality

If your family has conditions that are bad at home and improve when you leave, you may be struggling with indoor pollution. You should also talk to your doctor if you’re worried about your health.

  1. Lingering cold or flu symptoms. A sore throat or runny nose that never gets better could be linked to air quality. This is especially true if you feel better when you leave your home.
  2. Watery, itchy or dry eyes. Your eyes are vulnerable to indoor pollution and may react by turning dry, itchy or watery.
  3. Fatigue or feeling dizzy. Taking in chemical pollutants can have an influence on your energy levels.
  4. Frequent asthma attacks. Dust, pet dander, smoke and other triggers can be circulated through the air or get trapped in carpet.
  5. Coughing and sneezing. Allergies or colds can create these symptoms, but they shouldn’t be worse at home.
  6. Heavy dust despite weekly cleaning. You may need to get a new air filter or get a filtration system from Becht/Givens Service Experts.
  7. Humidity problems. Dryness can cause itchy eyes and increase respiratory symptoms. Too much moisture can result in mold or mildew growth.
  8. Stuffy odors. Mold or mildew flourishers when the humidity in your home is too high.
  9. Hot or cold spots. This can be related to air quality, especially if your HVAC system is having trouble balancing 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. Check that you have a operating carbon monoxide detector in your home.
