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

According to the EPA nearly 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and within your own Florissant home. Most of our exposure to impurities occurs indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more polluted than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is vital for good health. So what are some signs that you may need to boost your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are quite a few physical symptoms of reduced indoor air quality in Florissant, for example: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a number 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 issue.

Odors and Damage

Bad indoor air quality doesn’t just affect your health; it might damage the things in your home. You could start noticing your walls or ceilings look different, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all signs that you could have bad indoor air quality. There also could be a musty smell that never goes away.
