Health Effects of Poor Indoor Air Quality

Nobody likes when allergy season causes them to have itchy eyes or a runny nose — but imagine having that year-round because your home’s air quality is less than healthy. Without the proper filtration systems, you could be breathing in pollen, mold, and dust particles without even knowing it. Poor indoor air quality has a bigger effect on your health you may think.

The Immediate Effects

When exposed to pollutants or other harmful particles in the air, you may experience symptoms that mimic that of spring allergies. These can include:

  • Itchy eyes
  • Runny nose
  • Sore Throat
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches

These effects often go away after a while and can usually be prevented from happening again by finding the source of your irritation. However, if the exposure continues, your symptoms could worsen and lead to more serious issues.

The Long-Term Effects

When you’re exposed to poor indoor air quality for a longer period of time, your health can seriously suffer. If you have asthma, your condition can worsen and lead to more attacks. Additionally, long-term exposure to poor-quality indoor air can lead to respiratory infections or diseases, heart problems, and even some forms of cancer, depending on how bad the air is.

It’s easy to reduce the amount of harmful particles that live in the air in your home. Regular air duct cleaning, air filtration systems, and air purifying systems can remove the contaminants that live within your home. All you have to do is call Ace to get started.
