How to Tell If You Need to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality10/24/2016 Despite popular belief, the bulk 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. Plus, according to the EPA, nearly 90% of our lives are expended indoors. How can we ensure that our indoor air quality is the highest it can be and confirm that our health will not be negatively impacted by what’s right in your home? The first step to examining the indoor air quality of your house is looking internally – how do you feel in your home? What physical symptoms do you experience indoors? Poor air quality can easily be acknowledged through watery eyes, headaches, coughing, fatigue, sneezing and a few other symptoms that may be mistaken for other illnesses such as a cold or allergies. The best measure to decide if these symptoms are coming from your air quality is if you see them go away once you are outside of your home. The next phase toward improving air quality is examining for odors or damage in the items within your home. Walls and ceilings can appear discolored and wood furniture can also warp or chip. There may also be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to go away. All of these things can indicate poor air quality in your home and can seriously impact your belongings.
