What Are Some Causes of Poor Indoor Air Quality?

The air around us is always changing. We are bombarded with pollution from all different sources, and it has a significant effect on our health. Air quality can be affected by anything that releases gas or particles – whether they come from the outdoors, like wildfire smoke or our own personal-care products we use each day. Inadequate ventilation will trap contaminated air inside your home and can keep clean, fresh air from cycling into your home. If you have unmaintained heating and air conditioning systems, your clogged air filters and dirty ducts will contribute to dust and mites in the air. Dampness in your house caused by floods, leaks, high humidity, or an unmaintained humidifier or dehumidifier can create mold and bacteria. Call Innovative Air Solutions for help in detecting the possible sources in your home.

What Are Some Symptoms of Poor Indoor Air Quality?

Poor indoor air quality can lead to a number of physical problems. Some symptoms associated with poor air are coughing, sneezing, fatigue and dizziness. Poor health among the elderly may be exacerbated by unhealthy conditions in their home environment such as mold or bacteria that produce toxic gases like carbon monoxide which is deadly at high levels but usually undetected until it’s too late! Poor indoor air quality leads to many different types of respiratory infections and lung diseases including asthma and heart disease for some people who are already at high risk. Other individuals experience increased irritability when exposed to this type of environmental hazard because they have weakened immune systems due to age or illness.
