your home air may be making you sick
Airborne chemicals in your home could make you feel sick and make asthma and other conditions worse.
Do you ever feel lightheaded or dizzy after being inside your home for a while? Do you find it harder to breathe at home than at work or outside? Are there peculiar persistent odors or chemical smells in your home? You are not alone.
We hear from many people who believe that the air in their homes may be making them sick. It's a common complaint and it is often true. Sometimes items in our homes or its very building materials may be giving off harmful chemical pollutants, called VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds). Without adequate ventilation and proper containment, even slightly elevated levels of these airborne pollutants can be bad for your health – even worsening asthma symptoms and triggering attacks.
Consulting your doctor is always the first and best way to make sure you are well and to try to determine the causes of an illness. But when the doctor gives you a clean bill of health and can't say for sure what is making you sick, it's time for Home Air Check.
