Is your home making you sick? If you suffer from respiratory disease, asthma, allergies or other ailments, it could be due to poor air quality in your home. Symptoms that can be caused by badquality air in the home include cold or flu symptoms like sneezing, coughing, running eyes and congestion. You may also experience irritation or redness of the skin, eyes, nose or throat. Other health symptoms you might experience include frequent headaches, fatigue, allergies or worsening asthma.
If symptoms are worse when you spend a lot of time at home, or if you continuously experience these symptoms – especially in poor weather when the windows are closed, then poor air quality in the home could be at fault. Extra precautions need to be taken if you have any young children or elderly people in the homewho can be more adversely affected.
There are obvious causes of bad air including cigarette smoke and pet dander. If you notice any musty or unclean odors in certain rooms of the home, that could be indicators of mold, mildew, pet urine stains or dust accumulation. Check for any areas that are wet and look for stained or discolored carpets and drywall.
To prevent sickness and improve air quality, it pays to have your home deep cleaned once a year, or more often when you have residents who are particularly susceptible to illness. Cleaning companies, like Steamworks Cleaning of Mississauga, can clean your home so deeply – even the air quality is improved.
