Three Common Causes Of Poor Indoor Air Quality In Your Home
Did you know that poor indoor air quality can harm your health? For example, your eyes or throat may itch temporarily. Dizziness, fatigue, and headaches may also occur. You should avoid ignoring these troubling indications. Poor indoor air quality can contribute to many cancers, including heart disease. Listed below are several causes of indoor air pollution in your home.
Gas Stoves Are A Contributor
Gas stoves come with a drawback in that they are a common source of indoor air pollution. Research has shown that gas appliances are associated with significantly higher risks of carbon monoxide poisoning. You should always ensure you use your stove in a well-ventilated space.
Your Home Lacks Ventilation
Poor indoor air quality is primarily caused by inadequate ventilation. It not only makes your air hazardous, but it also makes whatever problems you may have with air pollution worse. Increase ventilation as much as possible, especially if exposed to dangerous air pollutants in your homes, such as paint remover or cigarette smoke. If you have issues with ventilation in your home, don’t hesitate to reach out to All Aspects Waterproofing.
Issues With Indoor Humidity Levels
You might be aware that, over time, moisture can seriously harm the structural integrity of your house. Do not, however, ignore your health. Ensure there is no moisture issue in your home, mainly if it includes a basement. Watch out for any telltale indications of moisture, such as mildew, wall fixtures, and rusted equipment. Additionally, pay attention to any “musty” smells in your basement since they can be a sign of a much worse issue. If you think your house could have a moisture problem, we’ve got you covered.
