A good night’s sleep makes all the difference to your physical and mental well-being. Anyone who hasn’t slept well knows how it affects you the next day. From memory loss to mood swings, not getting enough sleep has many detrimental effects not just in the short-term, but in the long-term as well.
More and more studies have shown how much of an effect a home’s indoor air quality (IAQ) has on the quality of sleep for its inhabitants. For example, people who live in areas with moderate to high air pollution are 60% more likely to suffer from poor sleep compared to those living in areas with cleaner air.
But even common indoor pollutants such as dust, mold, pollen, pet dander, and allergens are found in just about any home, circulating in the air you breathe inside and affecting sleep quality. If you want to improve your sleep quality, consider indoor air quality services such as the installation of a whole house air purifier.
