Why Your Home’s Indoor Air Quality Matters
Most people spend nearly ninety (90) percent of their time indoors. If neglected or uncontrolled, common indoor pollutants, like mold, can have long-term and immediate effects on your health. Indoor air pollution can be difficult to detect and if left untreated, it can maximize your risk for greater health problems. The most at risk groups for serious health problems from indoor mold exposure are young children, elderly and individuals with chronic illnesses or preexisting respiratory conditions.
The adverse health effects from frequent exposure to mold and other indoor air pollutants can range from mild to severe. Some minor symptoms may include, stuffy nose, sore throat, regular headaches, and respiratory infections. While some more severe consequences could include, lung cancer, liver damage, kidney disease, permanent respiratory disease and even brain damage.
It’s important to note that exposure to air pollutants, such as mold, from a single source may not necessarily have adverse effects on your health. Furthermore, there are no significant health risks from occasional exposure to air that contains harmful chemicals or contaminants, but continued and frequent exposure will put you and your family at a greater risk overtime.
The solution is simple! Testing your home’s indoor air quality with our easy-to-use home mold detection kit is the first step to ensuring that you and your family are breathing in clean, safe air that will stop negatively impacting your health.
