Indoor Air Pollution and Health

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) refers to the air quality within and around buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of building occupants. Understanding and controlling common pollutants indoors can help reduce your risk of indoor health concerns.

Health effects from indoor air pollutants may be experienced soon after exposure or, possibly, years later.

What Causes Bad Indoor Air Quality?

Your health – Pollen, dust, mold, bacteria, and pet dander can trigger allergies, asthma, or other respiratory problems. Bad indoor air can cause problems with those with allergies. ... Humid air can cause sticky and moist air indoors making the temperature feel warmer than it really is. 

What Affects Indoor Air Quality?

There is an optimal level of humidity in indoor air. Too low humidity causes eye irritation, dry skin, and rashes, whereas too high humidity results in water damage and mould problems and favours the growth of dust mites. Ventilation: 

EPA Reports

On average, we spend about 90% of our time indoors, where pollutant levels can be 100 times higher than those outside. Indoor pollution is estimated to cause thousands of cancer deaths and hundreds of thousands of respiratory health problems each year. 

Reasons for Poor Indoor Air Quality

Excessive Moisture-  Builds up from infiltration and everyday activities 

Poor Ventilation-  Leads to an excess of pollutants and moisture.

Tighter Homes-  Traps moisture and pollutants, creating an unhealthy environment.

Natural Air Flow-  Pulls the pollutants upwards into the living areas affecting the whole house ventilation.

SOME INDOOR AIR QUALITY POLlutants

EXCESS MOISTURE

Moisture helps create mold growth and may occur on visible interior surfaces in the building, including within basements or crawl spaces, or be hidden inside walls and air conditioning systems. Excess moisture problems arise from a range of sources including, but not limited to, water leakage through roofs and walls, plumbing system leaks, groundwater entry, high indoor rates of moisture and, entry of humid outdoor air coupled with insufficient dehumidification, water vapor condensation on surfaces of windows and walls, etc. 

HOUSEHOLD ODORS

When you encounter a new, unexplained smell in your home, the first thing that you should do is make sure that it is not causing immediate harm to you or your family. Some lingering smells could indicate serious health hazards and should not be ignored. While maintaining your indoor air quality should always be a priority, you should take special care when dealing with the household smells 

POOR VENTILATION

If too little outdoor air enters indoors, pollutants can accumulate to levels that can pose health and comfort problems. Unless homes are built with prpoer means of ventilation,  to minimize the amount of outdoor air that can "leak" in and out may have higher indoor pollutant level 

CLEANING CHEMICALS

Many household products contain toxic chemicals that can turn into air pollutants in your personal environment. Most indoor air pollution originates from sources that release gases or particles into the air. Candles, air fresheners, cleaning products and other household items can be potential culprits of air pollutants in your home 

DIRTY HVAC UNITS

AC Ducts draw in air from your home through return vents, and unfortunately, no matter how clean a home you keep, some amount of dust, dirt, and other debris particles enters the ducts with it. Contamination will start to collect inside the hidden ducts, and this will eventually lead to issues with HVAC performance and even a steep decline in your indoor air quality 

PET DANDER

Pet dander is composed of tiny, even microscopic, flecks of skin shed by cats, dogs, rodents, birds and other animals with fur or feathers. These bits of skin can cause reactions in people who are specifically allergic to these triggers.

Additional allergy triggers or allergens come from sources other than the animal's skin. Proteins found in saliva, urine and feces from cats, dogs and other pets can cause allergic reactions in some people.
