Air quality and respiratory problems
According to research by Harvard Medical School*, stale indoor air can exacerbate respiratory problems (including asthma flare-ups), fatigue and sleepiness, or even digestive issues. Most of the allergens causing these problems are odorless, so you won’t know if your house is vulnerable, but we do know that poor air quality means an increased amount of unpleasant particles including allergy-inducing dust mites, pet dander, and mold spores circulating through your house.
