Did you know that indoor air quality is ranked by the EPA as being one of the biggest environmental risks to your health? If that’s right it means that some of the worst pollutants you encounter on a daily basis are in your own home. Most of the exposure that we receive to pollution comes from air we breathe indoors. This air can be up to 100 times more polluted than outdoor air and it’s because of products and materials that we use in our homes and on our property.
Be Aware of the Indoor Air Quality in Your Home
If the air quality is poor in your home you may notice some of the following symptoms: mold or mildew, poor air ventilation, stale air, odors, humidity, dirty ventilation equipment, and smoke or smoke residue. By hiring a home repair company like Water Damage Zone, you will have professionals come into your home to assess these symptoms of poor air quality and suggest repairs and renovations that will resolve your air quality problems.
Health Complications from Poor Air Quality
It is important to note that poor indoor air can lead to health complications such as asthma and other respiratory conditions. Pollution has also been linked to lung cancer and lung infections in individuals who have been exposed. It has even been shown to cause symptoms such as stroke and depression. Don’t wait to get started on improving the air quality in your home, your health depends on it.
Improve the Air Quality of Your Home
You can improve the air quality of your home on your own by ensuring that your home is clean and ventilated. You may need to purchase fans or fix ones that aren’t working in order to promote the circulation of air through your home. Replace dirty air filters so that they work more efficiently to clean the air. Dust and vacuum your home regularly. Use air conditioning in order to keep the level of humidity down in your home so mold isn’t allowed to grow. By cleaning and keeping air ventilation systems up and running the way that they are supposed to, you will be able to raise the quality of the air in your home.
