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

According to the EPA almost 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and inside your own Zelienople home. A lot of our exposure to pollutants occurs 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 indicators that you may need to boost your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a number of physical symptoms of bad indoor air quality in Zelienople, such as: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a variety of others. The symptoms can often be incorrectly identified as other illnesses such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to disappear when you’re outside of the house, it might 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 discolored, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all signs that you could have reduced indoor air quality. There also may be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to go away.
