Indoor Air Pollution Comes From Sources Inside & Outside of Your Home
Most pollutants that affect residential indoor air quality originate inside your home, and you may not even realize they’re causing your family harm. Many common household goods like cleaning products, crafting supplies, paint, and even candles release VOCs (volatile organic compounds) into the air. Building materials, carpet, hardwood, laminants and furniture can also release harmful pollutants into your home in a process called off-gassing.
Other common sources of indoor air pollution include:
Mold and mildew
Viruses and bacteria
Dust mites and their fecal matter
Mice, insects, and other pests
While most indoor air pollutants come from inside your home, outdoor air pollutants can also affect your IAQ. Smoke, ash, pollen, radon, car exhaust and other outdoor pollutants can be carried into your home by people and pets, and then can also get inside through open doors and windows and cracks in your foundation. Indoor air quality solutions from Pippin Brothers address all of the most common indoor and outdoor air pollutants.
Poor Indoor Air Quality Can Make Your Family Sick
When air pollutants are introduced to your indoor air, they will infiltrate your HVAC system and be circulated through your home over and over again. Your family will be breathing in polluted air constantly, which can lead to symptoms like:
Inflammation in your body
Poor indoor air quality can also trigger asthma attacks and make existing respiratory problems much worse. To keep your family safe and healthy, it’s important to regulate your indoor air quality.
Of course, we cannot discuss indoor air quality without mentioning COVID-19. Coronaviruses are airborne viruses that can wreak havoc on the human immune system. The are many remedies available to you and your family to elimination of airborne and surface pathogens that can be part of your overall indoor air pollution solution.
