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

According to the EPA nearly 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and inside your own Locust home. A lot of our exposure to pollutants happens 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 better your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a number of physical symptoms of poor indoor air quality in Locust, like: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a number of others. The symptoms can often be incorrectly identified as other illnesses such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to go away 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 play a role in your health; it may damage the items in your home. You may start noticing your walls or ceilings look tarnished, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all things that show that you might have poor indoor air quality. There also could be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to go away.
