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 in your own Selbyville home. A lot of our exposure to impurities takes place indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more dirty than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is vital for better health. So what are some signals that you may need to improve your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a number of physical symptoms of poor indoor air quality in Selbyville, for example: 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 vanish when you’re outside of the house, it could be an indoor air quality issue.

Odors and Damage

Poor indoor air quality doesn’t just play a role in your health; it may damage the things in your home. You may start noticing your walls or ceilings look discolored, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all things that show that you might have bad indoor air quality. There also could be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to go away.
