When spring allergy season rolls around we tend to focus on the air quality outdoors. It’s hard not to focus on your outdoor air quality, in all fairness. Those high pollen counts can really do a number on your sinuses. You don’t have to remove your attention from the quality of the air outdoors, you just need to focus a little more on the quality of your air indoors too.
Maintaining high indoor air quality will help you breathe easier throughout the spring and summer and it can even make it easier to cool your home during hot weather. If you’re ready to boost your indoor air quality this spring then make sure you contact our team today—we have the best indoor air quality technicians in Salem, OR.
Signs That You Have Low Indoor Air Quality
Here are a few signs that you have low indoor air quality in your home:
- Sneezing and Coughing: Let’s add in a little wheezing for good measure too. If you feel like your cold or allergy symptoms actually get worse when you’re at home it’s probably not in your head. High levels of contaminants or unbalanced levels of moisture in your home have a direct impact on your body. High indoor air quality is the best way to improve your home health and personal health.
- Respiratory Problems: If you or a family member have respiratory issues like asthma or bronchitis you might notice that your breathing becomes a little more labored when you’re at home. It’s because of the high levels of dirt, debris, pollen, and pet dander circulating through your home. Matching your needs with the right indoor air quality system can eliminate these problems.
- Headaches and Fatigue: Do you seem to have a headache any time you’re in your home for an extended amount of time? Developing a headache or feeling lethargic in your home is a big sign that you have high amounts of dust mites, dust, smoke, or other problematic solvents contaminating the air of your home. Make sure you contact a responsible team when you’re ready to rid your home of these problems.
