Indoor Air Quality: What It Means to You and Your Family
As you might figure out, indoor air quality is all about the quality of the air inside your living spaces. It goes unseen, which is why it’s usually not on the minds of most homeowners. Unfortunately, neglecting your indoor air quality can have a negative effect on your health and home. Poor air quality can affect your health by increasing the occurrence of allergy, asthma and respiratory symptoms. Improving your air quality can make a huge difference in your family’s health and comfort.
Common Issues Caused By Poor Indoor Air Quality
The level of contamination inside your home is much higher than outdoors, where natural ventilation lowers the concentration of contaminants in a space. Because of the lack of ventilation indoors, the contaminants are trapped inside with you. Certain contaminants can cause a higher occurrence of asthma and allergy symptoms, worsen respiratory issues, or cause more serious problems.
Poor indoor air quality can cause problems even in the healthiest of people. If you’re experiencing cold-like symptoms, it may not be because of a common cold; these symptoms can be caused by poor air quality. Because these symptoms are typically associated with colds, they’re easily overlooked, and so are air quality problems. If you or a family member is experiencing ongoing cold-like symptoms, don’t ignore the possibility that your air quality could be to blame.
Common pollutants that worsen indoor air quality include:
- Pet dander
- Dust mites
- Carbon monoxide
- Volatile Organic Chemicals (VOCs)
- Microbial growth
How to Combat Poor Indoor Air Quality in Your Home

There are also some additional measures you can take to improve the air quality inside your home. Start by preventing the air from your crawl space, attic or garage from entering your living space. Eliminating extreme moisture conditions and dampness or dryness can also improve the health of your home. Removing dust and other particulates from your home’s air will also improve air quality.
