Indoor Air Quality: The Basics
Between work, school and lounging around the house, most of us spend a large percentage of our time indoors. The quality of air that we are breathing within these buildings is important when it comes to respiratory health and our general comfort. If the air is full of contaminants, then it will quickly begin to affect your quality of life, including your productivity and health. Some of the everyday products that could be diminishing your home’s air quality include:
- Perfumes and colognes
- Chemical cleaners
- Chemical air fresheners
Biological pollutants are another serious problem when it comes to air quality. This includes:
- Pet dander
- Dust mites
- Insect particles
- Bacteria and viruses
Indoor Air Quality: Improve Your Health
There are countless respiratory problems that are either caused or worsened by the quality of air that we breathe. This includes common medical issues, such as asthma, allergies, and respiratory infections. The longer that a family spends inside a home with low air quality, the greater their risk of developing these conditions will be.
One of the biggest problems with bad air quality is that many families accept the side effects as a simple fact of life. Symptoms, such as a runny nose and watery eyes, are often attributed to the common cold without a family ever realizing that it is their home’s air quality that is the problem. Other side effects of poor indoor air quality include a sore throat, a dry throat, coughing, itchy eyes and red eyes.
