Fall Indoor Air Quality Problems

Coughing, sniffling and sneezing? It may not be the common cold. Fall can have a serious impact on your home's indoor air quality.



As temperatures continue to dip, mice and other rodents are looking for refuge -- and your warm home fits the bill. These pests are not only annoying, but can also negatively affect your family's health. A recent study discovered that exposure to mouse allergens can increase asthma and allergy symptoms in those with preexisting conditions.

It's also important to keep an eye out for mold this fall. Many air conditioners produce dampness that leads to bacteria, yeast and mold. When summer's over and you turn on the heat, these microbes dry out and disperse throughout your home. Mold can be a massive trigger for allergy sufferers.

Chances are you've locked up your windows and are spending more time indoors. Because heated air rises, a lot of the air in your living space originated in your basement or crawl space. Control the humidity in these spaces to minimize the potential for mold growth.
