What is a Sick House?

In modern times, we think of air pollution as car emissions and petrochemical plants polluting our city or town. Few think that their homes may be a source of pollution, but the truth is that the indoor air may be far more polluted than the air outside their homes. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor air pollution is one of the five greatest health problems in America and is detrimental to having a healthy home. This condition is also referred to as “Sick House Syndrome” or “Sickhouse Dilemma.” On average we spend about 90 percent of our time indoors - out of that 90 percent, about 65 percent is spent at home. For more information, please read "What house problems can cause sickness?".

Why is Indoor Air Quality So Important? 

Poor indoor air quality can affect the health and well being of the home occupants. Radon poisoning symptoms and formaldehyde poisoning are illnesses which can be attributed to poor indoor air quality. There are many cases of carbon monoxide poisoning each year which lead to death. Ongoing indoor air pollution can cause common allergy symptoms or even asthma attacks. Mold allergies are the most common complaint due to indoor air quality in homes.

Why We Created the Sick House Doctor Site? 

Over the years we have heard the cries from persons living in sick homes. Many have stated; I live in an "allergy house," or I have a "moldy house," or "my house is making me sick". And many more have asked us what causes mold health problems or what causes allergy induced asthma? Are there home remedies for asthma or other home health remedies?

The Sick House Doctor gives you information to help you take control of the home’s indoor air health. It will also give you home health rules and home safety procedures which you can apply now. There is usually no reason to perform home health testing when you can just start practicing easy-to-follow preventive measures.
