If your family has symptoms that intensify at home and get better when you leave, you may be suffering from indoor pollution. You should also talk to your doctor if you’re concerned about your health.

  1. Lingering cold or flu symptoms. A sore throat or runny nose that never goes away could be related to air quality. This is especially true if you don’t have symptoms when you leave your home.
  2. Watery, itchy or dry eyes. Your eyes are susceptible to indoor pollution and may react by growing dry, itchy or watery.
  3. Fatigue or feeling lightheaded. Inhaling in chemical pollutants can have an influence on your energy levels.
  4. Frequent asthma attacks. Dust, pet dander, smoke and other triggers can be diffused through the air or get caught in carpet.
