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 within your own Plainfield home. The majority of our exposure to contaminants happens indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more dirty than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is essential for great health. So what are some signals that you may need to improve your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are quite a few physical symptoms of bad indoor air quality in Plainfield, like: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a variety of others. The symptoms can often be incorrectly identified as other problems such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to disappear 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 affect your health; it may damage the things in your home. You might start noticing your walls or ceilings look tarnished, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all signs that you may have poor indoor air quality. There also may be a musty smell that is always around.
