Air pollution doesn’t only exist in the outside world, it also exists inside of your home and can perhaps be worse than outdoor pollutants. Think about all the chemicals that you use inside your home, from cleaning products to perfumes and colognes.

And since we spend most of our time indoors, the quality of your indoor air should be on the forefront. Poor indoor air quality in your Fredericksburg home can cause health complications for you and your family. But how do you know if you have poor air quality?

Signs That You Have Poor Air Quality

Health: Are you or your family members constantly sneezing or coughing? Do you get frequent headaches or nosebleeds? Unless you have a medical condition or are experiencing season allergies, these symptoms can be a sign of poor indoor air quality.


Dust at Home: Sure, your home can have dust here and there, but it should not be an excessive amount. If you find excess dust build up around air vents or on surfaces, an air filtration add-on to your HVAC system should help the problem.


Humidity: Too much or too little humidity is another sign of poor indoor air quality. The lack of humidity can be reflected on your body with dry skin, eyes, and sinuses. An excess of humidity will cause mold and mildew. Mold spots can appear in humid areas like sinks and tubs.

Odors: Unpleasant smells can stem from issues like mold or chemicals. Although sometimes hard to tell, if you notice a smell and can’t find a source then it could be caused by your poor indoor air quality.
