Indoor Air Pollution: The Symptoms & What to Do to Fight It

With the recent outbreak of the Coronavirus, more and more homeowners are growing concerned about their health and taking measures to protect themselves when leaving their homes. These measures often include hand washing, wearing face masks and social distancing. However, these are the measures you take when you step outside  your home. When you’re in your house, on the other hand, you can still protect yourself from the Coronavirus, and one way you can accomplish this is by preventing indoor air pollution.

In this article, McLay Services, the pros who are up-to-date with the latest HVAC technology trends, discuss the common symptoms of air pollution and what products you should use to combat it.

Indoor Air Pollution: The Common Symptoms

Unfortunately, indoor air pollution isn’t something that can be easily detected. In fact, it’s possible that you may not even realize that your indoor air is polluted until you feel its symptoms. These symptoms include worsening asthma, allergies, and respiratory problems, headaches and nausea, shortness of breath, sinus congestion and sneezing, eye, skin, and throat irritation, and memory loss, dizziness, fatigue and depression.

When you start feeling these symptoms, it’s best that you contact a professional such as the air quality and AC repair experts at McLay Services to improve your home’s indoor air quality.

Products You Can Use to Fight Indoor Air Pollution

Luckily for homeowners, there are certain products that can easily help fight indoor air pollution in the home. Once you’ve had a professional assess the quality of your indoor air, consider having them install products like humidifiers, dehumidifiers, air ventilators and whole-house air purification systems in your home to improve its indoor air quality. While these won’t outright kill viruses such as the Coronavirus, they can help lessen your chances of contracting it and improve the health of you and your family.
