Is Your Home a Health Risk?

Since Environmental Protection Agency studies have shown that levels of air pollutants indoors may be much greater than outdoor air pollution, a better question might be…

“How much of health risk is my home?”

The average person spends as much as 90% of their time indoors and that figure spells serious trouble for anyone with allergy or respiratory issues.  One way to determine whether you have an indoor air quality problem is to look at how you or those in your household feel when home:

1. Do you or others sneeze and cough in your home?

2. Do you or others in your home often have an irritated throat, nose or eyes?

3. Do you or others in your home wake up congested or with a headache?

4. If you or others in your home have any of the above symptoms, are they more common in a certain part of the house?

5. Does anyone in your home have frequent asthma episodes or respiratory infections?

If you have answered “yes” to any of these questions, you may have an indoor air quality concern.  Poor indoor air is a serious health threat, especially to young children and the elderly.  We can help – just give us a call.
