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

Despite popular belief, the majority of our exposure to pollutants takes place 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 spent indoors. How can we ensure that our indoor air quality is the greatest it can be and make sure that our health is not being negatively impacted by what’s right in our house?

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 when you are indoors? Poor air quality can easily be recognized 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 check to see if these symptoms are coming from your air quality is if they subside once you are away from your home.

The next phase toward enhancing air quality is examining for odors or damage in the items within your home. Walls and ceilings can appear discolored and wood furniture can begin to 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 greatly impact your belongings.
