You can see when your home is in need of vacuuming and dusting, but what about the air inside your home? How can you tell when you have an indoor air quality problem? The EPA has done studies and the air inside your home can be 2-5 times more polluted than the air in highly industrialized cities. The majority of our exposure to pollutants happens indoors, where we spend most of our time. Some of the symptoms of poor indoor air quality are headaches, fatigue, trouble concentrating and throat and eye irritation. Indoor air pollution has also been linked to asthma.
There are many things that affect indoor air quality and each home is different, which requires different solutions. Newer homes are built more air tight which keep your home energy efficient, but also keep in pollutants. Modern homes may require additional ventilation. If your home is too humid that creates a breeding ground for mold and dust (which leads to dust mites), so perhaps you’re in need of a dehumidifier. There are also pollutants in your cleaning products and air fresheners. Along with all the pollen that makes its way inside.
