Anyone with young children is aware that many things in the home are hazardous to their health and safety. There are more choking and/or suffocation threats than one can count in typical houses, including detergent pods that resemble candies. Parents also take great care to tether any furniture or appliances that could fall on a child to the wall and keep household cleaners, prescription medications, and chemicals out of children’s reach. Homes may include undiscovered dangers like defective wiring, moist flooring, and wobbly staircases, not to mention lead-based paint and asbestos.
Our families’ daily inhalation of air is one of the most pervasive concealed home risks.
When was the last time you considered the quality of the air inside your home?
When we consider bad air quality, we frequently consider outdoor pollution produced in crowded cities, greenhouse gas-emitting farms, or pollution from manufacturing plants. The fact is that the air we breathe indoors puts us all in danger.
While pollen and other outdoor irritants are the cause of many seasonal allergies, our homes also have a variety of indoor allergens. For particularly vulnerable individuals, such as small children, the elderly, or anybody who has chronic respiratory conditions or autoimmune diseases, many of these can be very hazardous and cause chronic pain and asthma.
Are you curious about the air you breathe indoors? We produce a variety of toxins and air pollutants with ordinary daily activities, such as dirt, dust, pet hair, cigarette smoke, and chemicals. The most troublesome allergies are probably mold and mildew, which may be found all around your house. Mold development may become a significant problem if overlooked or not recognized, not only for the construction of your house, but also for your health.
Keep in mind that just because indoor pollutants aren’t visible doesn’t imply they aren’t present. In reality, most of the time, typical indoor pollutants are made up of very minute particles that cannot be seen by the human eye.
Anyone can be impacted by poor indoor air quality, and symptoms can range from coughing, sneezing, headaches, and dizziness to more serious health effects like damage to the heart, liver, or kidneys. Poor indoor air can exacerbate symptoms for those already suffering from allergies, asthma, and other respiratory issues.
