Your home should be a place of comfort, beauty, and safety. Unfortunately, many homes in Florida and around the United States have contaminants circulating in the air every day. Do you know how to improve your indoor air quality? First, it’s important to understand what can happen to your air without the proper care and attention to the systems in your home.
What Makes Indoor Air Unhealthy?
There are a number of different indoor air quality issues. With the typical hot, humid weather in Florida, it is quite possible that mold can enter your home from a hidden leak or other areas where moisture creeps in. From closets to air ducts, mold spores can thrive without proper modern air filtration and routine climate control maintenance.
You and your family could also be exposed to harmful carcinogenic contaminants like carbon monoxide, radon, airborne pathogens, and infection-laden particles. The national organization for lung health, the American Lung Association, is a major proponent of improving indoor air quality— saying that certain serious illnesses and chronic respiratory problems can sometimes be traced back to preventable indoor air quality issues.
What Can Happen if I Have Unhealthy Indoor Air?
The complications of poor air quality range from mild — to even life-threatening. Children, seniors, and those who have compromised respiratory or immune systems, to begin with, are the most vulnerable. But even healthy adults can suffer from complications if there is unhealthy air inside the home. Some of the health problems /issues include:
- Colds and respiratory infections
- Chronic respiratory illnesses
- Allergic reactions
- Asthma & asthma attacks
- Vertigo & dizziness
- Migraines & other headaches & discomfort
- Chronic fatigue
Taking action to improve indoor air quality can make a huge difference in you and your family’s health in the short term — and for a lifetime.
