Can I measure the air quality at home? You can measure the air quality in your home using an always-on electronic monitor that consistently tests and reports the levels of pollutants and humidity via an in-built display panel, or linked to a smartphone.
Can air quality in your home make you sick? Occupants of homes with poor indoor air quality may complain of symptoms such as headache, eye irritation, fatigue, dry throat, sinus congestion, dizziness, and nausea. Because many illnesses can cause these symptoms, diagnosing sick building syndrome is difficult.
Is the air in my home toxic? You don’t often picture your home as part of the problem. The shocking fact is that the air inside your home is generally between two and five times more polluted than the air outside, says the Environmental Protection Agency. Some factors can make indoor air up to 100 times more toxic than the outdoor environment.
How do you keep the air in your house clean? Reduce dust by dusting often with a damp (not dry) cloth or dust mop. Vacuum upholstered furniture, drapes, and rugs thoroughly once a week, preferably with a vacuum with a HEPA filter. Better yet, remove wall-to-wall carpeting and large area rugs, especially in the bedroom.
