According to the EPA nearly 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and within your own Heflin home. Most of our exposure to contaminants 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 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 Heflin, such as: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a number of others. The symptoms can often be misidentified as other problems such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to vanish when you’re outside of the house, it might be an indoor air quality problem.
Odors and Damage
Reduced indoor air quality doesn’t just affect your health; it could damage the furniture in your home. You might start noticing your walls or ceilings look different, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all indicators that you may have poor indoor air quality. There also may be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to go away.
