Keep your home healthy this flu season with helpful tips from National Radon Defense!
Flu season comes around the same time each fall. With that comes advertisements for the flu shot and good handwashing practices. These reminders are important, but washing your hands and sneezing into your elbow is just the starting point to keeping yourself and your family healthy, especially when we spend most of our time at home.
Improving indoor air quality creates a healthier home environment for you and your family. Eliminating airborne illnesses, bacteria, allergens, and other contaminants means you won't have to worry about your home making you sick and create a more comfortable, enjoyable space overall.
Allergens, as well as indoor and outdoor pollutants can irritate and mimic symptoms of illness.
While many people are allergic to allergens in the spring and summer air, you can still experience these issues during flu season in wintertime. By improving the indoor air quality, you can help limit allergies all year round and reduce the symptoms that mimic the flu.
There are many small, accessible ways to improve indoor air quality!
Take control of your home's indoor air quality with these improvements, which create a more comfortable and healthier environment overall.
Another important consideration for indoor air quality within the home is radon testing. Natural gas exists all around us and usually has no impact on our daily lives. However, toxic home radon is one of the leading causes of lung cancer in the U.S. and can cause serious health issues for you, your family, and your pets.
The effects of hazardous radon levels can mimic allergies or the natural worsening of a pre-existing health issue such as asthma, the common cold, or the flu. As time goes on, however, these symptoms will only worsen and could prove detrimental with prolonged exposure.
When it comes to indoor air quality, calling the professionals is always a good idea - especially in the winter. An indoor air quality expert can inspect the whole home, provide a detailed examination, and create a plan to reduce indoor irritations and health risks.
There are many possible solutions that an air quality contractor can suggest to improve overall comfort and happiness in the home.
