Indoor Air Quality Affect Short and Long Term Health

Darren Kincaid - Tuesday, August 08, 2017

Central Plumbing and Heating, Chesapeake, VAAs we breathe in a day, we exchanges between 10,000 and 70,000 liters of air every 24 hours. And yet, air quality is often overlooked, compared to what's in our food and water.

The average person spends 90 percent of his time inside and unfortunately, indoor air is far more polluted than outdoor air. According to the EPA, indoor air contains 2 to 5 times more contaminants and sometimes as much as 100 times more.

Indoor air pollution is one of the most serious environmental threats to your health, and no agency can regulate it.

Poor air quality has been linked to both short-term and long-term health problems. The EPA warns that the following conditions can be caused or exacerbated by poor indoor air quality:

  • Asthma, allergies, and other respiratory problems
  • Headaches
  • Eye and skin irritations
  • Sore throat, colds and flu
  • Memory loss, dizziness, fatigue and depression

There are other health problems that can be caused from highly toxic airborne particles and these show up years later and include heart disease, respiratory disease, and even cancer.

Those particularly vulnerable to indoor pollutants include infants, the elderly, and people who already suffer with heart and lung diseases, asthma, or compromised immune systems. Unfortunately, these are also the people who typically spend the most time indoors.

You can't always stop pollutants from coming in, but in some cases, you can prevent pollution from actually happening. Contact Central Plumbing and Heating, Inc in Chesapeake, VA to learn more about how to improve indoor air quality.
