Your home’s indoor air quality can affect you a lot more than you may think. Germs and bacteria may linger in your air and cause problems for you and anyone else in your household, but it can be difficult to know whether or not they are present. Here are some of the most common signs that you need to improve your home’s indoor air quality.
- Allergy symptoms. If you have allergy symptoms like coughing, sneezing, or breathing issues when you’re home, there may be particles in your air that are irritating your respiratory system.
- Dust buildup. Dust can circulate in the air in your home and negatively affect your home’s air quality. Not only can this dust make you sick, but it can also make it harder on your HVAC system as it works to ventilate your home.
- Dry skin. Your skin can be pretty sensitive. One of the things that can have a big impact on the heath of your skin is your indoor air quality. Different particles can dry out your skin or otherwise irritate it.
- Foul odor. Contaminants, pollen, and mold particles can contaminate your indoor air. If they aren’t properly filtered out or taken care of, these particles can cause foul odors.
