Indoor Air quality is essential for our everyday health. However, many air pollutants can enter our homes, whether from home itself or the outdoors. Either way, we must keep our indoor air quality clean, so we can protect our health and the health of our loved ones.
Some air pollutants can cause effects in people rather quickly or even years later after coming in contact. These are some of the immediate effects you may experience after you come in contact with indoor air pollutants.
How Pollutants Effect Us
There are health effects that you may experience after a single exposure or repeated exposure. Some of these are irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat. Other signs are headaches, dizziness, and fatigue. These effects are typically treatable and short term. If the pollutant can be identified, then it is best to limit your exposure to it.
If you are someone with asthma or other similar illnesses, then your symptoms may worsen by coming in contact with air pollutants. Both age and medical history can play a part in whether or not you will have an immediate reaction to a contaminant. Also, sensitivity to pollutants will vary from person to person. If you experience repeated high-level exposures, then you can develop a sensitivity without an underlying factor.
Many of the effects caused by indoor air pollutants are similar to the common cold and other diseases. This can make it challenging to know whether pollutants cause the symptoms. One way to tell if the symptoms are from a cold or are from pollutants is to keep track of when and where they occur. If the symptoms leave when you leave an area, then you have a better chance of identifying what caused the symptoms in the first place.
