4 Common Causes of Indoor Air Pollution in Your Naperville Home

COMFORT-son-father-bonding-hvac

Your home’s indoor air quality (IAQ) can have a noticeable impact on your health and wellness. Poor IAQ can cause asthma and allergy flare-ups as well as nausea, headaches, and itchy skin, nose, or eyes. Watch out for these common causes of air pollution in your Naperville, IL home.

Household Cleaning Products

Many common household cleansers release volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These airborne substances can cause nausea, headaches, and skin or throat irritation. Using homemade cleaners like baking soda and vinegar can cut down on these VOCs. An air purifier and proper ventilation can also help remove these pollutants from the air.

New Furniture or Carpeting

New carpeting, upholstery, plywood, paint, and particleboard can all release VOCs. That brand-new couch or rug may just contribute to the itchy eyes, dizziness, or fatigue you’re feeling. This is another instance where an air purifier will help clean up the environment and protect your health.

Pets

Dogs, cats, and other pets can’t help but add dander, fur, and other irritants to the air in your home. Your HVAC filter will help capture many of these pollutants. If you have pets in the home, check your filter once or twice a month and change it any time you can see visible dust or dirt. An air cleaner or air purifier will help you capture an even higher percentage of irritants. A home ventilator or air exchanger will help as well by removing stale air from the home and bringing fresh air in from outside.

Excess Moisture

High humidity creates a welcoming environment for microbial growth. A musty smell in the home often indicates such growth may be lurking in your home. A whole-home dehumidifier will help you keep moisture levels under control so you can eliminate this type of air pollution.
