Have you ever taken a moment to take a deep breath, and think about the quality of the air you’re breathing? Air is essential to life, and yet it’s something we all take for granted. Since modern life involves so much time spent indoors, it’s good for us to take the time to ensure that we’re not suffering from poor air quality.
The noticeable effects of poor indoor air quality are typically air that is stale or stuffy, with a lack of general air movement. Poor air quality can cause a long list of negative health conditions that range from chest tightness to shortness of breath to asthma attacks. If you’ve noticed any of these things, it would probably be a good idea to look around your home to find things that may be contributing to the poor air quality. Mold growth, dirty air conditioners, and poorly ventilated heating or cooking appliances can all have a big impact on air quality.
