Indoor Air Quality in New York City

How is the Indoor Air Quality in Your NYC Home?

NYC indoor air quality

We have heard all about globalization, change, pollution, and global warming. As with change, we have to instill measures to combat hazardous situations that arise from the aforementioned change. In today's world, there has never been more pollution than there is now. Studies show and claim that when a person or any living thing for that matter gets exposed to high levels of polluted air and toxins within it ( such as mycotoxins, one of many toxic mold toxins), can lead to damaging the brain, can lead to neurological problems, internal organ issues, and in some cases directly attributing to death.

 Indoor Air Quality and Mold

One of the principal causes of bad indoor air quality is elevated airborne mold concentrations. Breathing too much mold and the wrong kinds of mold can be extremely detrimental to your health. Some molds are classified as toxigenic and may cause serious health hazards. Elevated airborne mold concentrations are related to some excess moisture issue somewhere within your home or building. This can be due to a plumbing leak, a roof leak, recent flooding or water damage, poor ventilation and drainage, or your heating and air conditioning system not functioning properly. You may think that your home is safe from this phenomenon, but you are wrong.

Signs and symptoms of poor indoor air quality

 can be headaches, coughing and sneezing, itchy and watery eyes, having difficulty in breathing, dizziness, fatigue, chronic respiratory issues, etc. In some cases rashes may appear and feeling of tiredness, sinus or nasal blockage and frequent sneezing too. Last but not least one may experience chronic cough, asthmatic episodes, pneumonia, as well as other respiratory conditions.

Another potential problem of mold is it contains allergens. If you have red eyes or skin rashes, be on the look out for mold. If you can manage to find mold, you have to stop it from any further formation. You can carry this out by educating yourself. When there is moisture, humidity, and lack of sunlight, more than likely you will find mold. Often, this will happen in the bathroom. Alternatively, you can try to remove the mold by using bleach, borax, tea tree oil mixture, biocides, or fungicides. If the problem is significant, though, you may need to talk to a professional Brooklyn mold inspection and removal company in NYC.

Poor Indoor Air Quality Warnings

If you want to fight back, you need to learn how air behaves. Your home may have dirty air regardless of how new it is. The first step in checking indoor air quality is talking to the people in your family. Specifically, see how their health is. As a general rule of thumb, someone suffering from poor air quality will have a runny nose and nausea. It's worth pointing out that poor air quality does not effect all home equally. One potential warning sign is if you are moving into a new home. Remodeling work can also cause problems. Regardless of what you are dealing with, you need to have the indoor air quality of your home tested.

The indoor air quality of your home depends on the age of the home, heating and cooling systems, humidity, how clean your home is, the area you live in, and the availability of air purification systems. In addition to ensuring air purification system is working properly, it is also vital to do your part to avoid hazards whenever possible (smoking, gas stoves without ventilation, etc.).
