Indoor air quality is an increasing quality of life concern for the modern person. Did you know that the average person spends 90 percent of their time indoors? How about the fact that all of this time indoors could be the reason why so many people suffer from allergies and other sicknesses?
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air quality is five times worse than that of outdoor air quality. Even worse, this air pollution contributes to many health problems many people experience. That’s right, while you’re assuming that your snot-nosed coworker who refused to wash his hands or that dirty subway pole is the reason you’re sick, the truth is the real culprit might be right under your nose.
Symptoms of Indoor Air Pollution
Some of the signs you may need to test your indoor air quality are regularly occurring health symptoms associated with several modern health sicknesses. These symptoms include:
- Flu-like symptoms
- Sinus issues
- Eye irritation
- Skin rashes and irritation
What causes poor Indoor Air Quality?
Indoor air quality can be negatively impacted by several environmental issues within the home. If you have pets, animal dander they leave can add to pollution, as can poorly maintained HVAC and ventilation systems, dirt and dust mites, pollen, smoking and the like. This also includes the use of synthetic construction materials that release compounds toxic to the human body in the air, and household cleaners.
