Indoor Air Quality Testing in Charleston: How Air Quality Affects Your Health

Our homes can get polluted fast. Daily activities like cooking, showering, and cleaning can generate high concentrations of pollutants, not to mention issues like mold, humidity, or asbestos. For homes in Charleston, Green Home Solutions provides highly detailed indoor air quality testing.

We don’t just test indoor environments—we review the results and offer next steps, so you can always take steps to improve air quality. We know how important it is to have clean, healthy air circulating in the home. 

Let’s review how indoor air quality can affect your health. 

The Health Effects of Poor Air Quality: A Quick Primer

Indoor air quality can have both short-term effects, like congestion and fatigue, as well as serious long-term concerns like cancer. When it comes to your health, here’s what to keep in mind:

  • The effects can depend on a lot of factors. There isn’t a simple formula for understanding how poor air quality will affect your health. That’s because the effects can range significantly, depending on what types of pollutants are in the air, how concentrated they are, and whether there’s adequate airflow. 
    Similarly, the effects can vary from person to person. Your age, your health, and your medical history may all have an effect on how susceptible you are to potential side effects or long-term complications.  
  • Vulnerable people are especially at risk. With that said, it’s important to understand that your most vulnerable family members are typically most at risk of developing health problems. Children, in particular, can be deeply affected by poor air quality, and it can even affect their lung development. 
    Older family members may also be more likely to develop health concerns. For family members with asthma or respiratory conditions, poor air quality can trigger these and related health issues. 
  • Awareness and prevention are important. Knowing what’s in your air—and how it can affect your health—can help you take proactive steps to address air quality problems. In fact, the EPA recommends air quality testing, since many pollutants can be difficult to detect on your own. 
    With Green Home Solutions, homeowners in Charleston can always access comprehensive indoor air quality testing for mold, moisture, and other issues. We can always help you make your air better.
