Indoor Air Quality Guide in Mobile, AL

Many homeowners in Mobile, Saraland, and Baldwin County, Alabama don’t understand the full impact indoor air quality has on your comfort and health. ECO STRONG has put together this informative Indoor Air Quality Guide to give you more details about indoor air quality and how you can improve the air quality in your home.

Indoor Air Quality: The Basics

A number of factors affect the quality of air you breathe. Often, these issues go unnoticed until family members start experiencing symptoms. In recent years, new technology has given homeowners the power to manage the quality of the air they breathe with innovative solutions that can be used with your heating and cooling systems.

Pollutants inside the home can be natural or man-made. The same pollutants are present outdoors, but the weather and sunlight can keep these issues in-check. Inside, there is less ventilation and air flow isn’t as strong, so pollutants tend to build up. Air sealing and other efficiency-improving measures can actually restrict your home from being able to ventilate properly.

Some of the pollutants commonly found inside homes include the following:

  • Pollen
  • Fumes from cleaning products
  • Humidity
  • Carbon monoxide
  • Pet dander
  • Dead skin cells
  • Cigarette smoke
  • Perfumes and colognes

The reason these pollutants often go unnoticed is that you can’t see them. So when you’re not aware of the problem, you’re probably not likely to take any action to combat it.

Indoor Air Quality Issues

Poor indoor air quality has been shown to increase allergy symptoms and aggravate other health issues from which you or your family members may suffer. Poor indoor air quality is especially harmful to allergy and asthma sufferers, as allergens which trigger their symptoms may be present indoors in high quantities. People with respiratory conditions and infections are likely to be affected by poor indoor air quality, too. While many of the pollutants inside your home don’t cause serious damage, some do; carcinogens such as cigarette smoke and some cleaning chemicals can cause serious health issues when exposure is prolonged.

For those who are healthy, don’t think poor indoor air quality won’t affect you, too. Many otherwise healthy individuals experience common allergy-like symptoms when exposed to poor air quality. You may find yourself suffering from itchy or watery eyes, a runny nose, headaches, or skin issues. Some of these symptoms can easily be written off as a cold or seasonal allergy, but the truth is, your air quality may be to blame.
