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 inside your own McMurray home. A lot of our exposure to contaminants occurs indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more polluted than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is crucial for good health. So what are some signs 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 McMurray, such as: 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 vanish when you’re outside of the house, it may be an indoor air quality issue.

Odors and Damage

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