Signs of Poor Air Quality
Indoor air pollution is often overlooked or not noticed until family members begin to display symptoms. This can range from frequent colds and sinus infections to triggering asthma and allergies or respiratory ailments.
Indoor air pollution is associated with health problems that include:
- Sinus infections
- Fever and muscle aches
- Respiratory conditions
If your family members are displaying any of the above symptoms, you may have been to the doctor. While the doctor can provide treatment for many of these symptoms, the problem won’t really be solved until you address the indoor air quality issues that are causing the trouble.
Sources of Indoor Air Pollution
When “sick building syndrome” was initially linked to indoor air pollution, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) were identified as a problem. As a result, manufacturers began to remove VOCs from furnishings and other products. However, there are many other possible sources of indoor air pollution.
Common indoor air pollutants include:
- Pet dander
- Plumbing leaks
- Chemical emitted from furnishings and building materials
- Cleaning supplies
- Carbon monoxide
The first step to improving indoor air quality is to determine the sources of indoor air pollution in your home. Problems with indoor air quality can be traced back to a past plumbing leak, ductwork problem, or inadequate ventilation. We are equipped to detect and solve sick building syndrome and other indoor air quality problems.
Products for Better Indoor Air Quality
Solving air quality problems begins with identifying the source of the issue and addressing any problems. This may include professional heating and air conditioning maintenance, sealing leaks in ducts, and having plumbing leaks repaired. In addition, there are a variety of products on the market for improving indoor air quality.
Indoor air quality can often be improved with:
