Breathe Easy: Understanding and Improving Indoor Air Quality

Poor indoor air quality can cause a range of negative health effects if not addressed promptly and properly. The severity of these negative health effects can vary based on factors such as the type and concentration of pollutants, the duration of exposure, and the individual’s susceptibility. Common poor indoor air quality health effects can include but are not limited to:

  • Asthma
  • Bronchitis
  • Allergic reactions
  • Eye, nose, and throat irritations
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
