How Good Is Your Air Quality?

Indoor Air Quality

In a world where smog, haze and ozone alerts are as common as gridlock, it’s nice to know you can always come inside to catch a breath of fresh air.

Or can you? Did you know that most people spend more than 90% of their time indoors, and that 50% of all illnesses are either caused by, or aggravated by poor indoor air quality (IAQ)?

Worse yet studies conducted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency have shown that your exposure to air pollutants can be more than 100 times higher indoors than outdoors.

Is that serious? Actually, yes. Exposure to dust mites, animal dander, cat saliva, mold and the like, cause about 200,000 emergency room visits a year for asthma patients. Even worse, radon, a highly carcinogenic gas emitted from the soil, is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. In the workplace, poor air quality can cause headaches, nausea, lethargy, increased absenteeism and serious illness. Factories, office buildings, homes, restaurants, movie theatres…none are immune to indoor air pollution.

Feeling Out Of Sorts? It Could Be Something In The Air

Thankfully, however, there are things you can do to help alleviate potential IAQ concerns. If you’re experiencing headaches, itchy eyes, a runny nose or a persistent cough, you might have a cold. Then again, you could be suffering the effects of poor indoor air quality. Poor indoor air quality can lead to significant health problems, so you might want to check with your family physician. Remember, indoor air pollution is nothing to sneeze at. Taking 20,000 breaths everyday, we breathe in up to 200 million particles. Over 40 million people suffer from allergies and asthma. The quality of your indoor air could be the reason you are not feeling well.

When It Comes To Clearing The Air, Prevention Is The Best Medicine

It would be convenient to point at one single culprit in the battle against indoor air quality, but it is not that simple. Truth is, there are so many potential sources that it is impossible to devise a blanket solution. Chemicals in carpets, household cleaners, furniture and building materials all contribute to poor indoor air quality. Damp basements, and other areas where standing water is prevalent, can also lead to potential indoor air quality concerns.
