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

October 24, 2016

According to the EPA almost 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and in your own Bossier City home. A lot of our exposure to contaminants occurs indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more contaminated than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is vital for better health. So what are some signs that you may need to boost your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are a variety of physical symptoms of reduced indoor air quality in Bossier City, such as: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a variety of others. The symptoms can often be incorrectly identified as other illnesses such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to disappear when you’re outside of the house, it could be an indoor air quality matter.

Odors and Damage

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