How to Tell If You Need to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

October 24, 2016

According to the EPA about 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and inside your own McMurray home. The majority of our exposure to pollutants 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 crucial for better health. So what are some indicators that you may need to improve your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a number of physical symptoms of reduced indoor air quality in McMurray, for example: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a variety of others. The symptoms can often be misidentified as other problems such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to disappear when you’re outside of the house, it might be an indoor air quality matter.

Odors and Damage

Poor indoor air quality doesn’t just impact your health; it might damage the furniture in your home. You may start noticing your walls or ceilings look tarnished, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all indicators that you may have bad indoor air quality. There also could be a musty smell that is always around.
