10 Signs Your Home has Poor Indoor Air Quality

If your family has problems that are bad at home and improve when you leave, you may be affected by indoor pollution. You should also talk to your doctor if you’re anxious about your health.

  1. Ongoing cold or flu symptoms. A sore throat or runny nose that never goes away could be linked to air quality. This is especially true if you feel better when you leave your home.
  2. Watery, itchy or dry eyes. Your eyes are susceptible to indoor pollution and may react by turning dry, itchy or watery.
  3. Tiredness or feeling dizzy. Taking in chemical pollutants can have an influence on your energy levels.
  4. Recurring asthma attacks. Dust, pet dander, smoke and other triggers can be diffused through the air or get caught in carpet.
  5. Coughing and sneezing. Allergies or colds can lead to these symptoms, but they shouldn’t be worse at home.
  6. Heavy dust despite regular cleaning. You may need to put in a new air filter or install a filtration system from Peachtree Service Experts.
  7. Humidity problems. Dryness can cause red eyes and amplify respiratory symptoms. Too much moisture can result in mold or mildew growth.
  8. Musty odors. Mold or mildew blossoms when the humidity in your home is too high.
  9. Hot or cold spots. This can be linked to air quality, especially if your HVAC system is having issues balancing temperature and humidity.
  10. Nausea. This can be a reaction to the chemicals or pollutants in your home. It can also be a symptom of high carbon monoxide levels. Make sure that you have a working carbon monoxide detector in your home.
