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

Despite popular belief, most of our exposure to pollutants occurs indoors rather than outdoors – indoor air can be two-to-five times more polluted than air outside, according to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission. Additionally, according to the EPA, nearly 90% of our lives are expended indoors. How can we ensure that our indoor air quality is the best it can be and confirm that our health will not be negatively impacted by what’s right in your home?

The first step to inspecting the indoor air quality of your home is looking internally – how do you feel in your home? What physical symptoms do you experience inside? Poor air quality can easily be identified through watery eyes, headaches, coughing, fatigue, sneezing and a few other symptoms that typically can be mistaken for other illnesses such as a cold or allergies. The best measure to see if these symptoms are coming from your air quality is if they subside once you are outside of your home.

The next phase toward increasing air quality is examining for odors or damage in the items within your home. Walls and ceilings can appear discolored and wood furniture can start to warp or chip. There could also be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to leave. All of these items can indicate poor air quality in your home and can greatly impact your belongings.
