Signs of Poor Indoor Air Quality
Not all symptoms are the same—you may notice different signs of poor indoor air quality depending on the type of contaminant present in your home. Typically, common signs can be mistaken for allergies, the common cold, flu, or stress. These symptoms include coughing, sneezing, dizziness, fatigue, headaches, sore throats, nose bleeds, and upper respiratory congestion.
If you already suffer from asthma, lung problems, or heart disease, poor indoor air quality can worsen the symptoms of your condition.
What Causes Poor Indoor Air Quality?
Your indoor air quality can become poor from several situations, such as when any gas or particles are released inside your Chesterfield home. This includes spray from personal-care products, combustion, smoke, and outdoor air contaminants. If you don’t have adequate ventilation in your home, then fresh, clean air won’t be able to get in and circulate throughout, which means you are left to breathe the poor air trapped in your home.
In addition, clogged air filters and dirty air ducts can lead to excess dust and mites, many times occurring with a lack of routine professional maintenance on your heating and cooling system. On top of this, bacteria and mold growth could be created as a result of any leaks, floods, high humidity, or an unmaintained humidifier or dehumidifier. The combination of these can absolutely cause a negative impact on your indoor air quality.
If you smoke, use chemical cleaners and personal-care products, or burn any type of fuel inside your home, damaging particles can be released in and contaminate your home. Try to be cautious of what products you use. With proper ventilation, any contaminants your home has been exposed to might be controlled.

There are several actions you can take to enhance the indoor air quality of your home. Our experts recommend proper ventilation, as well as adding an iWave air purifier, whole-house humidifier, and whole-house dehumidifier.
