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

Air Quality

Despite popular belief, most of our exposure to pollutants happens 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. Also, according to the EPA, nearly 90% of our lives are expended indoors. How can we make sure that our indoor air quality is the highest it can be and confirm that our health isn’t negatively impacted by what’s right in our house?

The first step to checking 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 can often be mistaken for other illnesses such as a cold or allergies. The best check to decide if these symptoms are coming from your air quality is if they go away once you are away from your home.

The next stage 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 might 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 greatly impact your belongings.
