5 Ways to Improve Indoor Air Quality During the Colder Months Whether you know it…
Indoor air quality products can make your home more comfortable and safer for you and your loved ones. On the average, Americans spend about 90% of their time inside either at home or at work. With more and more people working from home, it’s likely that some people may never go outside during a workday. With that amount of time being spent indoors, it’s very important that the air inside is as pure and healthy as possible.
What’s the Problem with My Indoor Air?
Even though you can’t see them, there are many contaminants that can pollute your indoor air, such as dust and dust mites. Totally avoiding dust is unrealistic, but it can be reduced. Since dust mites thrive on dust, by eliminating dust as much as possible you’re also reducing the dust mite population.
Other pollutants include volatile organic compounds or VOCs, which are present in the carpets, some upholsteries and even in some beauty products like hairspray. So, you see, if you have furnishings and floor coverings, and what home doesn’t, it’s difficult to avoid having poor indoor air quality.
Are There Any Health Concerns?
Poor indoor air quality has been linked to minor health concerns such as runny noses, itchy or watery eyes, allergies, or even cold-like symptoms. Even worse, consistently breathing in contaminated air can make asthma worse or lead to more serious respiratory or cardiac issues. Over the long-term, poor indoor air quality has also been known to cause problems with concentration, headaches, fatigue and general malaise.
