Indoor Air Quality
Why is Indoor Air Quality important?
Most people are aware that outdoor air pollution can impact their health, but indoor air pollution can also have significant and harmful health effects. The Environmental Protection Agency lists Indoor Air Quality among the top 5 risks to human health, probably because indoor air can be 2-5 times more polluted than outdoor air. While homeowners can’t see the majority of indoor air contaminants, every cubic foot of air breathed carries a mixture of millions of microscopic particles such as pollen, mold spores and dust mite debris. In small concentrations, these particles and gasses may cause discomfort in the home. In significant concentrations, they can cause sickness as these are among the most troublesome triggers of such ailments as asthma and allergies.
What symptoms are often linked to poor indoor air quality?
It is common for people to report one or more of the following symptoms:
• Dryness and irritation of the eyes, nose, throat, and skin
• Shortness of breath
• Hypersensitivity and allergies
• Sinus congestion
• Coughing and sneezing
People generally notice their symptoms after several hours at work and feel better after they have left the building or when they have been away from the building for a weekend or a vacation.
Many of these symptoms may also be caused by other health conditions including common colds or the flu, and are not necessarily due to poor IAQ. This fact can make identifying and resolving IAQ problems more difficult.
