Air Quality 101: When Was the Last Time You Thought About Indoor Air Quality?

There’s a lot of talk about outdoor air quality these days, with pollution causing dangerous breathing conditions in many parts of the United States. And while air quality in Illinois is either good or moderate throughout most of the year, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, it’s not just outdoor air quality that can have an effect on your health; the quality of your air inside matters too.

Indoor Air Quality Considerations

Indoor air pollution can have the same impact on your health as outdoor air pollution. Some of the most common types and sources of indoor air pollution are:

  • Mold;
  • Smoke;
  • Pollen;
  • Pesticides and chemical-containing household products;
  • Certain gases; and
  • Lead, radon, and other toxins sometimes found in the home.

Even when these toxins don’t exist, individuals who have allergies or respiratory conditions may suffer from pet dander and other irritants.

How to Improve Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air quality is a concern, and can be a significant threat to human health. One thing that you can do to improve indoor air quality is to check for mold (especially in high-moisture areas, such as the bathroom), eliminate the use of chemical cleaners in your home, never smoke indoors, and make sure there are no gas leaks within your home. To eliminate dust, pollen, and other allergens that may be in the air, investing in an air cleaner is a smart choice. In addition to an air cleaner, you can also add a self-adjusting humidifier, which adds moisture to the air that will help to prevent against dry, cracked skin and sore throats during the winter months.

What You Breathe Matters

The air inside your home can be dirty, and is sometimes even dirtier than the air outside. The best way to combat this is to invest in an air cleaner. An air cleaner, especially when paired with a humidifier, can result in improved air quality, keeping your family healthier.
