You may have read recently about indoor air quality and wondered what it means and why it is important.

Did you know that according to the Environmental Protection Agency, the air indoors can be more polluted than smog? Since most people spend 90 percent of their lives indoors this is now more important than ever.

in Air Quality Indicators

It goes without saying that the air quality in your home (or office) can affect you in many ways. The effects are often subtle and individual. Some people have a higher tolerance but others can have a seeming chronic reaction to indoor air quality that they often put off as "allergies" or "pollen". Here are some things to look for:

  • Excessive dust settling in your home, no matter how frequently you clean.
  • Condensation on walls or windows, indicating poor ventilation and high relative humidity which can cause mold to grow and can encourage dust mites and other allergens to thrive.
  • Worsened allergy and asthma symptoms.
  • Bad odor in the air, especially when the AC is running, indicating potential mold or bacterial growth in your ductwork. 
  • Chronic coughing, sneezing, fatigue, headache, and congestion that is worse when you are in your home or building.
  • Strong chemical odors and vapors.
