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 within your own Heflin home. The majority of our exposure to pollutants takes place 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 signs that you may need to improve your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a number of physical symptoms of poor indoor air quality in Heflin, like: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a host 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 issue.

Odors and Damage

Reduced indoor air quality doesn’t just impact your health; it could damage the items 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.
