Seasonal allergies can be a real pain in the neck, eyes, ears, throat, and more. Unfortunately, so can the symptoms of poor indoor air quality (IAQ)! So, how can you tell which is which? Here is what you need to know about how your South Jersey home can affect your health, and how Bovio Rubino Service can help.
The Many Symptoms of Poor Indoor Air Quality
The air inside a home is easily contaminated, and once harmful particles enter your breathing air they can recirculate, over and over.
Signs Your Home May Have Poor IAQ
- Excessive dust
- Mold growth
- Condensation on basement walls
- Dirty or clogged air filters
- Air leaks around windows & doors or indoor drafts
Physical Symptoms of Poor IAQ
- Frequent headaches
- Sinus congestion (post nasal drip, stuffy nose)
- Sneezing, coughing, or wheezing
These symptoms can be caused by a concentrated amount of the following air pollutants:
- Pollen & other allergens
- Pet dander
- VOCs (volatile organic compounds)
- Carbon monoxide
