Warnings Your Home Has Poor Indoor Air Quality

How healthy do you think your home is? It might not be as good as you would imagine. Pollution can be two to five times higher inside than outdoors, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Indoor air contaminants floating through your residence’s air may be a source of headaches and allergy attacks. And mold and mildew can cause a host of health problems.

How Can I Reduce Indoor Air Quality Troubles?

Avoiding indoor air quality issues can be fairly simple with these 10 guidelines:

  1. Schedule an indoor air quality audit with Woody's Sudden Service Inc. We’ll test rooms that can harm air quality, including humidity, carbon monoxide and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Then we’ll discuss the issues we locate and how you can improve them.
  2. Clean frequently to collect dust mites, which can intensify allergies and asthma.
  3. Keep your home free of secondhand smoke.
  4. Consider a whole-home filtration system to eliminate smells, versus masking them with air fresheners or scented candles. These pollutants include chemicals that can lead to or inflame respiratory disorders.
  5. Vent appliances that use gas, such as stoves and water heaters, to the outside.
  6. Keep your residence’s humidity levels maintained with a humidifier or dehumidifier, based on what meets your home comfort needs. Set humidity under 50% to impede mold and mildew growth.
  7. Test your space for radon. Continual exposure to this non-colored, hazardous gas is the main source of lung cancer among people who have never smoked, the EPA says. You can purchase a radon test kit online or contact your state radon program for info on discounted or free kits.
  8. Use a ventilation system to substitute polluted indoor air with cleaner outside air.
  9. Buy chemical-free cleaning and painting material that are low in or free of VOCs. Heightened concentrations of VOCs can increase troubles for family members with respiratory disorders.
  10. Install carbon monoxide sensors close to bedrooms.
