3 Signs of Poor Indoor Air Quality

The air that you breathe each day significantly influences your health and well-being. Although you may think that you live in a clean and habitable setting, your indoor air quality may be subpar. If you want to determine if your air needs to be improved, there are a few signs to look for in the building.

1. Dust Buildup Around Vents

Taking a close look at your air vents in each room of the home can offer insight into the amount of dust and dirt that is present in the air. You may notice that there’s significant dust buildup around the air vents and on other types of surfaces. You may begin to dust the house more frequently due to excess particles that accumulate more than normal. Consider installing a new air filter or upgrading to a HEPA filtration system with the help of a company like J Martin.

2. Humidity Problems

Your home may begin to have humidity levels that aren’t where they should be with either too little or too much moisture in the air. The humidity level in your home should be between 35% and 50% to reduce the risk of microorganism growth. If the problem isn’t fixed, you may experience dry eyes, warped furniture, respiratory infections, and damage to structural components in the building.

3. Unusual Odors

One of the most common symptoms of poor indoor air quality is unusual or strange odors. Pest infestations, debris or dust on surfaces, and chemicals can all contribute to odors and eventually affect how comfortable you feel while spending time in your home. Mold or mildew that is present can also lead to unusual smells.

Our team of professionals at J Martin is here to help you recognize if your air quality needs to be improved. We can also perform HVAC repairs, installations, and maintenance.
