What Is Indoor Air Pollution and Where Does It Come From?
Many Lorton homes are tightly sealed to keep heated and cooled air from getting out. Insulation, weather stripping, and other energy-efficient practices create a tight barrier around your home that keeps energy losses low. The downside is that insufficient ventilation allows pollution to collect indoors.
Contaminants can include carbon monoxide, radon, lead, asbestos, household cleaners, volatile organic compounds, viruses, and bacteria. Indoor air can also be laden with pollen, insect and pest droppings, dust mites, dust, pet dander, or harmful fumes,.
Can Indoor Air Cause Illness?
Indoor air pollution can produce a wide array of symptoms that make you feel ill. Nausea, vomiting, dizziness, and fatigue are come symptoms that may develop. If the symptoms vanish when you go outside, they may be a product of toxic indoor air. Even worse, poor indoor air quality can cause much more serious conditions over time.
Pneumonia, COPD, heart disease, and lung cancer have all been connected to tainted indoor air. Toxic particles can weaken the immune system, inflame the lungs, create cataracts, and damage the nervous system. Tuberculosis, high blood pressure, stroke, and low birth weight have all been linked to contaminated indoor air.
