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

According to the EPA about 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and within your own Napoleon and Northwest Ohio home. A lot of our exposure to pollutants happens indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more polluted than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is vital for good health. So what are some signs that you may need to boost your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are quite a few physical symptoms of reduced indoor air quality in Napoleon and Northwest Ohio, for example: 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 issue.

Odors and Damage

Bad indoor air quality doesn’t just impact your health; it might damage the furniture in your home. You may start noticing your walls or ceilings look discolored, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all indicators that you may have reduced indoor air quality. There also may be a musty smell that never goes away.
