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 Columbia home. Most 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 better health. So what are some signals that you may need to better your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are quite a few physical symptoms of bad indoor air quality in Columbia, such as: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a variety of others. The symptoms can often be incorrectly identified as other illnesses such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to disappear when you’re outside of the house, it could be an indoor air quality matter.

Odors and Damage

Bad indoor air quality doesn’t just play a role in your health; it could damage the furniture in your home. You could start noticing your walls or ceilings look different, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all indicators that you might have poor indoor air quality. There also might be a musty smell that never goes away.
