Are you experiencing cold flu symptoms? Could be that it’s neither of these. Maybe it’s something in your house.
When windows & doors are closed up your indoor air quality (IAQ) often worsens. Commonly people report symptoms like:
- dryness & irritation of the eyes, nose, throat & skin
- shortness of breath
- hypersensitivity & allergies
- sinus congestion
- coughing & sneezing
Many of these symptoms may also be caused by other health conditions including common colds & flu, making recognition of IAQ issues difficult. People with upper respiratory issues, medically fragile & environmentally sensitive individuals may be affected sooner or to a greater extent when their indoor air quality suffers.
If you’re having troubles pinpointing what’s causing you troubles in your home, and you’ve ruled out the cold & flu, it may be time to look at your indoor air quality (IAQ) at home or work.
