How to Tell If You Need to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

According to the EPA about 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and inside your own Perry home. A lot of our exposure to pollutants happens indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more contaminated than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is vital for better health. So what are some signs that you may need to boost your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a variety of physical symptoms of reduced indoor air quality in Perry, for example: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a variety of others. The symptoms can often be misidentified as other illnesses such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to vanish when you’re outside of the house, it may be an indoor air quality matter.

Odors and Damage

Poor indoor air quality doesn’t just play a role in your health; it might damage the furniture in your home. You might start noticing your walls or ceilings look tarnished, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all things that show that you might have reduced indoor air quality. There also may be a musty smell that never goes away.
