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 Saint Marys home. A lot of our exposure to pollutants 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 great health. So what are some indicators that you may need to better your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a variety of physical symptoms of poor indoor air quality in Saint Marys, for example: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a number of others. The symptoms can often be incorrectly identified as other problems such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to go away when you’re outside of the house, it may be an indoor air quality problem.

Odors and Damage

Reduced indoor air quality doesn’t just play a role in your health; it may damage the items in your home. You could start noticing your walls or ceilings look discolored, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all signs that you could have poor indoor air quality. There also might be a musty smell that is always around.
