Improving Your Indoor Air Quality
Your indoor air quality has a significant effect on your family’s overall health and wellness. When allergens, pathogens, and other particulates get trapped inside your air ducts, they are circulated throughout your home and can cause allergies, asthma, and respiratory problems. These issues get worse as time goes on, unless you schedule regular air duct cleaning, duct and vent maintenance, and change your air filters often.
At Cypress Air, we offer comprehensive indoor air quality testing and assessments in San Gabriel Valley and portions of Orange County and the Inland Empire, so we can quickly determine if you have poor indoor air quality. We can then offer superior air quality improvements that will keep you and your family safe and healthy. To learn more or schedule an indoor air quality assessment, just call us today.
The Importance of Indoor Air Quality
Every day, whether you are inside or outside, you are exposed to a huge variety of different airborne contaminants and irritants. Most of the time, they don’t affect your health or safety at all. However, for most people, their home is where they spend the most time, so it stands to reason that your home’s indoor air quality is very important. Any pollutants in the indoor air are 2-5 times more concentrated than they are in the outdoors, so maintaining your home’s indoor air quality should be a priority. If your home’s indoor air quality is compromised, symptoms might show up immediately or even years later, and can significantly affect the health and safety of your family.
What Affects Your Home’s Indoor Air Quality?
Your home’s indoor air quality can be affected by many different pollutants, most of which you probably aren’t even aware of. If you live in an area that is dusty and windy or if you have pets, your indoor air quality can be compromised. If you have been doing renovations or remodeling your home, your indoor air quality can be affected by sawdust, plaster dust, paint, chemicals like varnish or formaldehyde, or byproducts of insulation installation. If your home is suffering from an infestation of pests or animals, you might be exposed to airborne hair, feces, or materials the pests have chewed or dug out of your walls, ceilings, or floors. Cleaning products, lead, car exhaust, pesticides, fires, cigarette smoke, mold and mildew growth, humidity, and more can also dramatically reduce your home’s indoor air quality.
Signs of Poor Indoor Air Quality
If you’re not sure if your home’s indoor air quality is poor, take a look at this checklist of signs that your air quality may be compromised. You or your family might begin experiencing:
- Dry or burning sensation in the nose, eyes, or throat
- Frequent sneezing or coughing
- A stuffy or runny nose
- Fatigue or lethargy
- Loss of appetite
- Increased thirst
- Dizziness or vertigo
- Irritability, confusion, disorientation, or forgetfulness
These symptoms might indicate poor indoor air quality, or another health concern. If you develop these symptoms suddenly, they don’t go away, or they worsen over time, you should visit your doctor and schedule an indoor air quality assessment.
