4 Signs of Poor Indoor Air Quality
Unusual odors are always one of the first and most significant red flags that the air quality in the home is compromised, but this isn’t always the case. Sometimes smells can be harmless. Sometimes there might be no smell at all, and the air might be heavily polluted. Common odors range from chemicals and smoke to stuff like mold or mildew growth, pest infestation, or decomposition. Eventually, it ends up on the surfaces or floor, so if you see excess dust and dirt on characters in the home, it might indicate indoor air quality problems.
Dust Buildup Around Vents & Surfaces
As noted above, stuff floating around in the air usually ends up someplace. Therefore, in addition to dusty counters, dust buildup around the home and air vents can strongly indicate an indoor air quality problem. At the very least, the buildup of pet dander, pollen, dust mites, and other impurities and unwanted particles can usually be resolved with an air filter upgrade or HEPA filtration system. We also recommend media air cleaners and ionizers.
Air Distribution Inconsistencies
Where the air isn’t flowing correctly, there is often good cause for concern. For one, you need to check your air filter. For two, you need to consider air quality. Warm areas or cold areas are signs of air distribution problems. These problems can cause indoor air quality issues. If your heating or cooling unit isn’t maintaining proper temperature levels, indoor air quality is more prone to issues.
Mold & Mildew Growth
Mold and mildew growth often come with high relative humidity levels and poor air circulation in the home. A telltale musty smell is often apparent in homes with mold issues, alongside green and black (mold) spots on surfaces, particularly around sinks, tubs, and other areas frequently exposed to moisture/water.
