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 Plainfield home. Most of our exposure to pollutants 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 vital for good 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 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 go away when you’re outside of the house, it could be an indoor air quality issue.

Odors and Damage

Reduced indoor air quality doesn’t just affect 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 indicators that you might have bad indoor air quality. There also might be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to go away.
