What Causes Poor Indoor Air Quality?
Many things can contaminate your indoor air and leave it dirty and unhealthy. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the three most common categories of pollutants that cause allergic reactions are germs, particulates, and VOCs (volatile organic compounds). Each of these pollutants is responsible for approximately one-third of indoor allergic reactions.
More specifically, indoor air is often polluted by:
- Pet dander
- Cooking fumes
- Aerosol sprays
- Wood preservatives
- Building materials and furnishings
This list is not exhaustive. There are many things that can lead to poor IAQ, but these are the list above contains the most common culprits.
How Do You Know If You Have Poor Indoor Air Quality?
Poor indoor air quality can affect not only your entire home but also your health. In order to avoid suffering serious consequences, it is best to become aware of the various indicators of poor IAQ.
Symptoms of poor IAQ are very similar to those of asthma, allergies, and the common cold or flu. Therefore, it can sometimes be difficult to determine the exact cause of your symptoms. Most often, victims of poor IAQ report that their symptoms alleviate upon leaving their home for an extended period of time.
These symptoms include:
- Watery, itchy, or dry eyes
- Shortness of breath
- Sinus congestion
Much like your health, your home shows signs that it is affected by poor IAQ. If you notice low airflow, foul odors, mold, significant dust buildup throughout, excessive humidity, or mildew in your home, chances are that you have poor IAQ.
