Indoor Air Quality in Fallbrook
Do you know what your indoor air quality is like in your Fallbrook, CA home? According to California’s Department of Public Health (CDPH), it’s probably not ideal unless you are being proactive and have systems in place to keep your air free of harmful pollutants. In fact, San Diego County’s AQ Index values consistently exceed 100 (“unhealthy for sensitive groups”) and frequently reach 150+ (“unhealthy for everyone”) between May and September. So, when the air outside is unhealthy, it’s likely the quality of your home’s indoor air is also unhealthy.

What Causes Unhealthy Indoor Air Quality in Fallbrook Homes?
When evaluating the pollution level of outdoor air, the CDPH measures four kinds of pollutants: sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide, particle pollution and ground-level ozone. Unfortunately, these pollutants can easily find their way into your home even on days where outdoor pollution is “acceptable”.
What about indoor air? What particulates are you inhaling in your home that don’t come from outside? The 10 most common particulates found in homes without some kind of air purification system include
- Dust mites
- Pet dander
- Tobacco smoke
- Pathogens (bacteria, viruses, fungi)
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
- Chemicals from cleaning agents
- Cleaning chemicals
- Household dust
When you combine outdoor air pollution in Fallbrook with indoor pollution, you’ve got a scenario where the health of you and your family could be under constant stress from inhaling potentially harmful particulates. Indoor air that is heavy with organic and inorganic particulates may promote recurring infections, worsening of allergy or asthma symptoms and even skin rashes.
