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 inside your own Shelby Township home. A lot of our exposure to contaminants occurs indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more dirty than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is crucial for better health. So what are some signals that you may need to improve your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a variety of physical symptoms of reduced indoor air quality in Shelby Township , for example: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a variety of others. The symptoms can often be mistaken for other problems such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to vanish 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 furniture in your home. You could start noticing your walls or ceilings look different, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all indicators that you could have reduced indoor air quality.
