6 Signs of Poor Air Quality in the Home

Look for the following 6 signs that indicate your home and family may be suffering from poor air quality.

1) Sudden Respiratory Complications
Exacerbated allergies, sore throat, runny nose, itchy eyes, nose bleeds, headaches, shortness of breath, coughing, asthma, dizziness… all of these symptoms are an indication of poor air quality in the home.

2) Hot Spots & Cold Spots
The sudden appearance of hot spots and cold spots throughout your home indicate that your home is suffering from poor circulation.

3) Mold Growth
If you notice the growth of molds or fungi within your home, your home’s air quality is in jeopardy. If there is mold, it means water is getting in. If water is getting in, so can other harmful contaminants and pollutants.

4) Bad Odors
If you notice foul and unusual smells, you may have a problem with your home’s air quality. Musty smells can indicate mold. The sickly, bitter smells of chemicals can indicate poor ventilation. Bad odors mean your air is not being successfully circulated, ventilated, or filtered.

5) Excess Dust
An increase in dust illustrates an increase in the collection of particulates and contaminants.

6) Humidity
Unusual humidity in your home is also a symptom of poor air quality. Where there is humidity, there is moisture–where there is moisture, there is mold.
