Indoor air pollution is a severe problem in many homes and businesses, with some having five times the amount of pollution as the outdoors, according to the EPA. Recognizing the signs of indoor air pollution and how to remedy them is imperative for your family’s health.
Signs of Indoor Air Pollution
Many people may not know they have bad indoor air quality, but here are some telltale signs:
- Heightened allergy symptoms
- Escalated asthma symptoms
- Chronic headaches
- Poor sleep quality
- Chronic dry eye
- Sinus congestion
- Skin irritation
The Environmental Protection Agency calls these symptoms a result of sick building syndrome. Because they can be associated with various illnesses, many people do not realize indoor air pollution is the cause.
