One of the biggest threats to your child’s health is poor indoor air quality. Household cleaners, animal dander, appliance exhaust gases, and other common household materials can all contribute to indoor air quality that is worse than some of the most polluted cities in America. Here is a look at how indoor air pollution affects your child’s health.
Immediate Side Effects
There are numerous products and materials that can lower the air quality inside your home, but household cleaning chemicals are some of the worst for your child’s health. A lot of cleaning chemicals release volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that can cause immediate side effects like headaches, nausea, and irritated eyes and sinuses. These VOCs are especially harmful to young children and babies, who are near the ground where heavy contaminants hang in the air. Contact your HVAC maintenance company to learn about products that can improve your indoor air quality and protect your entire family’s health.
Prolonged exposure to indoor pollution, even small amounts, can lead to serious long-term health complications. Children who grow up breathing VOCs and other indoor air pollutants can develop nosebleeds, asthma, visual disorders, and memory impairment. Some of the common indoor air pollutants found inside homes are suspected of causing, or are known to cause, cancer in humans.
