When it comes to air quality a lot of people think it's just about pollution due to dust storms or living in a place with a lot of dust in it. However, the truth is much more complicated, like it is in so many other cases. Indoor air quality is affected by quite a few factors, all of which can result in indoor air of lesser quality.
This means that occupants of such buildings, as they usually remain unaware of the situation, can develop a myriad of issues and problems. Some might be very light and fleeting while others can be much more serious. It is true that most of the times bad air causes mild discomfort that passes once you step outside or once you ventilate the space in question, but sometimes, that's far from being the case.
Get to Know What Impacts Air Quality
Besides the abovementioned dust storms, buildings that are not properly ventilated, either by design (a basement with no windows) or by behavior (having windows but keeping them constantly shut), can suffer from poor indoor air quality. This can be due to peoples' behavior (smokers that smoke inside), construction materials and techniques (asbestos, lead, etc.), or other problems such as mold or other forms of bacteria.
How Can You Tell?
Sometimes, you can tell by the feel of the place – if it's suffocating and stale, the logical assumption would be that the air in the space is of lesser quality. If you're not sure however, and want to be calm about the matter, all you have to do is contact Air Duct Cleaning San Diego for a professional air quality test.
