Sick House Syndrome Overlooked in Seniors’ Homes


Sick House Syndrome occurs when a house can’t “breathe” and rid itself of indoor pollutants, resulting in poor indoor air quality. The high levels of pollutants, such as nitrogen dioxide and formaldehyde, can cause health problems for seniors who are more sensitive to these types of irritants.

Air quality is something that go overlooked in a senior’s home. Poor indoor air quality can cause health problems and lead to a reduced quality of life. This happens because the immune system becomes less effective when it has to fight off pollutants. The older the home, the more possibility of Sick House Syndrome.

The symptoms of Sick House Syndrome are:

  • Headaches And Dizziness

  • Nausea

  • Aches And Pains

  • Fatigue

  • Poor Concentration

  • Shortness Of Breath or Chest Tightness

  • Eye And Throat Irritation

  • Irritated, Blocked or Runny Nose

  • Skin Irritations and Rashes

  • Falls
