How Clean Is Your Indoor Air?

December 5, 2019

The quality of your home’s air is very important to everyone who lives there. Air that is rife with dust, pollen, pet hair, dander, and other impurities can not only irritate the symptoms of allergies, asthma, and other ailments but also jeopardize a person’s perfect health.

Coincidentally, many homeowners do not think much about their air quality. Poor air quality could be silently hurting them without them even knowing.

Professional technicians, like those at Summit Heating & Cooling in North Kansas City, will use tried-and-true methods to test the quality of your air and analyze exactly what is in it. This information is invaluable in equipping your house with solutions that will enhance air quality.

It is time to get serious about your home’s air quality, and it starts with identifying poor air quality. Here are some signs to look for that might indicate your residence’s air needs attention.

Asthma and Allergy Irritation

If you are finding that your asthma and allergy symptoms are worse inside than they are outside, that it is a red flag that indicates the air in your home is poor in quality. Impurities are invading the air and exacerbating the problem signs of these ailments.

Be conscious of your own symptoms, and take action right away instead of allowing poor air quality to slowly chip away at your health.

Prevalence of Dust and Dirt

Are you finding that you dust and clean your entire house, but after a matter of days, it does not look like it has been touched?

Sure, you will need to clean your property on a regular basis even if you have great air quality, but finding the constant need to dust is a sign that your air quality is poor. Bad air quality can coat areas of your home with dust and dirt.

Bad or Abnormal Odors

Mold spores, residue from candles and air fresheners, secondhand smoke — there are many impurities that are easy to detect through smell. If your air smells, it is most likely the byproduct of impurities in the air that should not be there.

Do not forget, though, that not all dangerous elements have an odor. Carbon monoxide is a prime example of this.
