5 Signs of Bad Air Quality

5 Signs of Bad Air Quality

Good indoor air quality is a necessity if you want to live a happy, healthy life. No matter where you spend your time, you need breathable air to do your best and function correctly. Bad air quality can be handled with filters and purifiers, but how do you know if you need one? Here are some warning signs that you’re breathing in bad-quality air.

Difficulty Breathing

If you’re having trouble breathing the air at all, it’s probably not good air. This can happen in a room that doesn’t have good ventilation, which means fresh air isn’t coming in, so the oxygen supply is dwindling. The worse this air gets, the more dangerous it is to be in that room for long periods.

Cold or Flu-Like Symptoms

Coughing, sneezing, throat irritation, headaches, nausea, and more can all be caused by allergens and irritants in the air you’re breathing. The variety of symptoms is because of how many possible particles there may be floating around, all of which have a different impact on your health.

Difficulty Paying Attention

It might not be your fault if you can’t focus while working or doing schoolwork. You might be a victim of poor air, making it hard to function cognitively. This means you’ll struggle to focus and think, reducing productivity.

Bad Smells

Sometimes, bad air can be revealed just through a bad room odor. Whether it’s the presence of dust, mildew, mold, or various other possible pollutants, a bad smell tends to signal that there’s something wrong.
